My refrigerator freezes my food and drinks even at lower setting. The freezer is at the lowest setting and freezes my food like rocks.


There is a thermostat inside the casing telling the fridge to keep cooling - forever.
Replace it

Idesit BAAN134 PSUK fridge keeps freezing food . The fridge part of my tower f/f keeps freezing food even though I have turned the dial down to the minimum the temperature regularly drops to below...


If it is an electronic thermostat it could be that the engineer has changed the board but not the sensor which reads the temp. If it is a mechanical thermostat it may be hes fitted the wrong type.It could also be that the system is short of refrigerant and the actual refrigerant charge is not getting all the way to the thermoststs sensor to switch it off, the back wall of the fridge should be frosted at least 3/4 of the way down and not just forming in a small part of the fridge.
