Question about Refrigerators
In the last week, all the liquids have started freezing up in the fridge side. Temperature has always been set at default and the setting was unchanged when it first froze up. I have dropped the setting to the warmest setting and fridge is still averaging 18 degrees. I disassembled the entire control box to check if damper had ice making it stick open or if it was inoperable. Everything looked normal and I can hear damper door opening and closing when running. It sounds like the temperature control box is not operating properly. How can I test that is the actually problem without replaing the part? Or is there another part that I should look at first? Freezer is still operating properly. Thanks for any insight you may have.

See if you have some paperwork on how to test, etc. located in a plastic bag taped up to the underside of the fridge. Pull the front vent cover off and you should see (feel) a bag taped up there with the test paperwork in it. If you don't have it let us know and maybe I can email it to you.

SOURCE: freezer temp too high
Air must circulate in the freezer when working properly. I am guessing the recirculating vent in the freezer may be blocked which would not bring warmer air back to the coil to be cooled. As for the door, I theorize there may be too much negative pressure which pulls the door in while you were pulling out ... don't have solution yet.

I haven't solved my problem, yet, but i have determined that it's beyond my scope and will require a pro's visit to my house.

Welcome to Fixya
You said, your Trio won't make ice. Freezer stays at about 25 degrees regardless of control setting. Fridge maintains 40 degrees at mid setting. Shouldn't the freezer be close to zero? Is there a way to check the temperature sensor in the freezer?
To check the temperature you can buy a refrigerator thermometer at the hardware store.
Ask if it can be used in the freezer too!
The fridge sounds slightly to cold and the freezer not enough.
Fist look in your freezer and check if the articles there are full to the max and covering the air vents usually found in the rear of the freezer.If so clear an opening for the freezer to breath.
Refrigerators and freezers usually share the cold air and I've seen this be the problem on many occasions.
If freezer was not I blocking the vents or even full to the max.
Then pull the plug out or if you can not reach the plug, trip the breaker off for 5 minutes and see if this resets the system.BUT do not plug the fridge back in before at least 3 minutes.
Let me know how it goes and send me any questions.
Thank You, Huuum

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.
