Question about Refrigerators
The refrigerator compartment does not maintain a consistent temperature. Sometimes it freezes. This has been the case for a while. Now it does not cycle off and on at all. If I set the control so the compressor kicks on, it works, but will then not go off unless I turn the control way down.

SOURCE: Freezer quits working
Solution Found! The problem is when the temperature surrounding the
refrigerator in the garage falls to < 45 degrees, the thermostat
regulating the refrigerator will not call for the compressor to kick in
to provide cooling (it's temperature requirements are being met). Since
there is no demand, the compressor will not cycle, which is how the
freezer is kept cold, and the freezer eventually warms up to match the
refrigerator temperature. Frigidaire makes a "Cold Kit" that I ordered
and installed from RepairClinic.com for $22 (Item
#: 1037646; Description: Garage kit). It's basically a strip heater
that runs off the control power to warm the thermostat and causes the
compressor to cycle once to twice a day to keep the freezer frozen.
After installation, the refrigerator stays at 40-45 and the freezer
stays around 0 degrees.

Hi, That is not that hard to fix and you can easily buy the parts yourself online...
There are two things that could be happning....
1. The control is bad and when you manually turn it it will close and start the unit, but it will not close after it opens to stop the unit on it's own....
In other words... you touching it and moving it will get it to work, but it will not turn the unit on if there is no outside influence on it....
The possibility is that the compressor will not restart when warm...but once it cools down it will restart....
I don't think this is what is happening though... my bet is with the thermostat/control...
Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...

Hello Ceci Phillips - Start by confirming that there isn't any gap in the sealed and check for any ice or frost buildup on the back wall of the unit. Also try to maintain an above average temperature in the freezer compartment and that it is not too low. If issue continues that I would suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately for a proper diagnoses.
