What does the temp display on the freezer tell me?


unless this is a dedicated freezer only and not a side by side or over/under , there's no way it's going to get down too 0 degrees inside a warm home , nope not gonna happen

also its not good for you to set this there as compressor wont cycle properly there and entire freezer will ice up , then believe it or not it will get warmer not colder wastes a lot of power as well

I have a Kenmore Elite 51374. The refrigerator is not getting cold enough but freezer is too cold. Technician said that it was an electrical problem to call a electrician that I needed a new outlet. I...


That is the dumbest answer I've ever heard from a technician.

The cold control on most boxes controls the freezer temperature. You want the freezer temp to be around zero degrees.

Somewhere (usually in the refrigerator section) there's another control that actually sets a damper, letting some cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator. Higher numbers equal lower temperature. Find that second control knob and turn it up by 1 or 2 numbers, let an hour or so pass and check your refrigerator temp. You want about 40 degrees in the fridge.

Replacing true kegerator parts


no use a Ranco p# A12-700 make sure the capillary is in the coilto sense the temp and set it to 1.5 on the knob. any colder and it could get too cold . you may be able to set it at 2 but be careful. it is a constant cut in at 37 degrees coil temp. the box temp will drop to usually to 28 or 29 at cut out.

Settings


The freezer should be set at 4 or 5 to start. If that is not cold enough then move the temp knob to 6 or 7 to get it colder. the higher the # the colder it will get. Onse you set the new temp it will take around 4 hrs to get to the new setting.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer.

Red light is on on bottom panel and buzzer is going off. Inside temp is 20 degrees and outside temp is 25 deg


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} Not all refrigerators are insulated the same and not all condensers are in the same place. Your cold control is monitoring the temperature of the refrigerator section and is designed to turn off the compressor to keep things from freezing in that section. If it stays cold long enough outside in your garage the cold control thinks its cold enough and won't turn the compressor on. A makeshift closet to hold a little heat the unit generates will probably help.

Freezer is not cold enough.


Turning it to the right will make it colder. It will only regulate the temp. by few degrees, so if your thinking there will be a big change there won't be.

Running High @ -10 C and should run at -20 C on coldest setting


1. Make sure the sealing gasket is making good contact all the way around. It's pretty easy to lose 10 degrees. If it is a magnetic seal on the door gasket, it may not be sealing all the way around.

2. If it is staying that cold, everything is working well enough. Maybe you need a little gas in the compressor. Time for the service guy.

By the way, is your unit speced to be that cold full of supplies? Is the door opened frequently? minus 35 is pretty cold.
