Sounds like the cold control is bad.Does the fridge work ok otherwise?The cold control is what you are having to turn to 0,and are usually set at midrange.0 to 9,set at 4.The control has a temperature sensitive tube that opens or closes the contacts in the control,and they do go bad.This is where I would start.You can get a replacement control at an appliance shop.Get the model and seriel number of the fridge located usually inside of fridge on a tag on the inside wall.Use these numbers to get the part.Hope this helps.

Ok, not knowing the model# I guess freezer bottom and fridge top?
Well somewhere in the middle there should be a fan and a thermostatic flap, opening to force cold air to the top. If that does not work to cool the top portion, and since the thermostat is located in this portion, the thermostat will never reach a stop temperature and it will keep running. Best I can do with info received, if you locate such flap, check for free movement, many things can stop it from moving, such as ice build up. If ice build up also check defrost timer as culprit.
Hope this helps.

The alarm goes off by itself and the fridge will stop working. switch it off for two to three days and it work again for few days


switch fridge off and defrost it 24hrs. inside fridge remove panel and locate the flap on the thermostat. put something behind it to jar it open about half inch. restart fridge and see if it cures problem. if it does fridge thermostat requires replacing. jaring the flap open is only a temporary fix to diagnose problem. but i did mine 4 months ago and still fine

Hello. We moved into a house a year ago that had a sub-zero fridge/freezer. When we go on vacation, the freezer unit sometimes shuts off (from not being used??). To get it working again, we have to turn...


It sounds like it may be the thermostat. turn it down to a normal level and give it a good tap to see if it starts. you may need to leave the door open so it warms up bit so it will start, it wont start if its cold as the thermostat would be satisfied. If it does start the thermostat should be replaced. I hope this helps
