Admiral Model AT17M6W - Temp Control Knob Stuck - Now I Broke It?

Temp control knob for the freezer temp setting (1-9 dial located in refridgerator compartment) seemed like it was stuck. It was set on a lower setting, but things were not freezing like I wanted in the freezer, so I wanted to turn the dial a few numbers higher. It wouldn't turn, so I tried using more strength to turn it, and it made a click sound and started moving freely (more free than normal, but not just "spinning"...and not longer stops when you get to "9", or go back to "1", etc...just keeps going.....now I don't know what setting the freezer is really on. Has this ever happened to anyone, and if so, can I fix it somehow? Or am I going to have to order a part?

You will have to take the inside panel off the door to get to the back of the switch..Inspect it closely for sharp edges as all should be smooth on the swtiching mechignism.. if its broken remove the out part of the switch and see if you can turn the temp switch inter control shaft either way...if it keeps spinning then you'll have to replace the entire swtich(ording parts) if it doesnt spinn freely then plut the inner pannel back on but with the swtich house off so the dial rod sticks out...Kind of **** but it would work!!! hope this was helpfull:)

I cannot understand the dual thermostat manual (" rolling " knob type) controls . They are printed in Japanese . There are 2 temp. control knobs side by side located inside the ref. compartment / lowe


Don't think it's the temp control problem, I suspect one on the defrost elements at the top is faulty, if food starting to defrost in the cycle indicates the lower element is working overtime.

The refrigerator ignores temperature setting.


Hello, This problem is going to be the cold control/thermostat, this part can be located in the control console inside the fridge bhind the freezer temp control knob (can also be found sometimes in the freezer depending on type/model) The reason your food in the fridge is freezing is because the thermostat controling the freezer temp is not shutting down and the air being blown into the fridge is too cold. Replace this cold control/thermostat and you should be fixed. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again and give me some time to respond. Good luck! Mike

I am renting a house with a ge profile refrige model no PSS27SGPASS. My food keeps freezing in the refrige. I keep raising the temp but that does not help what can I do I do not have a manual is there a...


That model has a electric powered damper that opens or shuts to reduce or increase the flow of cold air from freezer. Sometimes they stick open and will not close. It's quite expensive to replace. And the temperature control board is also expensive. I believe it's time to talk to the Landlord and get them on the project. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Freezer section is working but refridge not very cold.


check the vent that lets air from the freezer goes to the refrigerator. A control knob operates the amount of opening through the vent with a flap. makes the flap is not stuck, and responds to the knob, this is all mechanically link.

Stove to hot burns everything


This is a simple fix as long as the oven is heating properly and the only problem is that the temp seems higher than what the temperature control knob indicates...

Purchase an inexpensive oven thermometer from the hardware store and place it in the center of the oven. Set the temperature control knob to 350 degrees F.

Check the temperature indicated on the thermometer in the oven after 20 minutes. If it's not within 5 degrees of 350, you'll need to adjust the oven's temperature control.

Turn the oven off.

Pull off the temperature control knob. You can usually pull it off by hand, pry it off with a thin screwdriver, or slide a piece of cord up behind it and pull.

Note which kind of temperature control knob you have. There are two types: The first has a screw in the shaft of the knob; the second has an adjustment dial on the back of the knob.

Adjust the temperature with the first type by turning the screw in the shaft with a screwdriver. Turn it clockwise to lower the temperature; turn it counterclockwise to raise the temperature. Turn the screw just a little bit in the appropriate direction.

Adjust the temperature with the second type of knob by turning the dial on the back of the knob. (This dial is held in place with a screw or a clip that will need to be removed.) Raise the temperature setting by turning the dial counterclockwise; lower it by turning the dial clockwise. The notches are typically in 5 or 10-degree increments.

Test the oven temperature again.

Repeat until you're in the right temperature range.

Good Luck!

Temperature control


I have a danby mini fridge and freezer and noticed the same problem. The temperature dial has NO NUMBERS ON IT! it just has a strip that goes from light to dark blue. That's it. I looked in the manual and it doesn't say anywhere which way is colder...it makes sense that the darker the blue the colder the temperature but why keep us guessing?
