Running to much and freezer to cold. Thermostat was just changed

I had sears come out and replace my thermostat on my frigidaire and it fixed the problem. Now the thing runs all the time and the freezer is way to cold on the lowest setting. Is it the wrong thermostat or a bad one? What could my problem be?

FREEZER THERMOSTAT


Sounds like the thermostat is not working. Mechanical and electronic thermostats can go bad and cause the freezer to continue running no matter what setting is set on thermostat. When this happens the only setting that will work is turning the temperature setting to off. What is the model number on your freezer? Sea Breeze

It quit running and everything thawed. It's got electric going to the dial. plugged it in and can't hear anything running.


The power coming into the fridge goes to the thermostat and when it's time for cooling the thermostat tells the compressor and other components to come on so it has to be the thermostat..Does the light insinde the fridge work? If so i would replace the thermostat and it should fix the problem!!!

Refrigerator does not get cold, motor is running, repairman says get a new one. only 1yr old (frigidair side by side)repairman said sealed system needs to be replaced.


Well, that's great for you since the sealed system is cover with a five year parts and labor warranty. Call a local Frigidaire certified repairman and tell him the situation.

I bought a used Kenmore upright freezer, it's been running all the time.


The thermostat cycles the refrigerator on and off. The refrigerator normally runs as long as the temperature inside the refrigerator is higher than the set temperature. If the temperature inside the refrigerator is cold enough and the thermostat still does not cycle off, the thermostat may be defective. If so, you need to replace it, because it cannot be repaired. If the thermostat is not defective, you may have a problem with the sealed (refrigerant) system, in which case you should contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

you have a defrost problem or damper problem or evapator fan

1) Check the fan in the freezer is running

2) defrost the freezer (leave unpluged with door open for 24 to 48 hrs or untill it stops leaking water...


3) check the damper make sure it is opening and cold air is blowing

How you need to repair what defrost part failed
The defrost systems is:
218169802 HEATER-DEFROST
5303917954 THERMOSTAT-DEFROST
5303917954 TIMER-DEFROST

Start with the timer. It is just under the front kick plate. there is a knob you can turn it slowly.until it clicks off the compressor. then open the freezer and listen . You should hear the heater come on .. it will sizzle when it comes on ...
You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.
let me know if this helps or we can chat if you need more help.
