SOURCE: Refrigerator is too cold (28 degrees)

this is likely one of the thermistors on the fresh food side has failed. They are usually located under a small cover inside the fridge. They should have a reading of 15.5k-16.5k ohms at 72 degrees. They are easy to check and replace. Here is a link that should help.

you need to check and see if the plastic flapper on the damper vent door has frozen open and broken,you need to remove all the air flow parts to check this physically,you can run the diagnostics,and hear the damper motor run,but if the door is broken and stuck open you cant see this without removing the plastic grill covers and all the plastic parts from in front of it,even where the light bulbs are located in the roof of the refrigerator,if this isnt it,then you may have bad thermistors in the side of the refrigerators walls,the diagnostics will tell you this in a pass/fail test,g.e. has had a problem with these damper doors though in the past

I have Hussmaan HGL-2-BS. It runs for a while and starts to freeze even though the thermostat is set at above zero degrees. What is the solution


Sounds to me the thermostat will need to be replaced. If the control is electronic it may be related to a defective thermistor sensor telling the electronic control the wrong temperature.

What should the temperature inside the refrigerator be, I have it set at 37


On the fresh food side you have it set at the proper temperature. Most thermostats have a scale from 1 to 7 or 9. If you set the thermostat at 5 this equates to about 37 degrees. Thermostat do lose sensitivity after a while and need to be replaces. The switch inside the thermostat wears out and the sensing bulb sometimes loses the fluid inside the sensor and the thermostat stops controlling temperature. So sounds like you have it set properly.

Sometimes when the refrigerator temp is 37* some of the food will get frozen.


Your thermostat is faulty. The vegetables cannot freeze at 37 degrees. It will not freeze until it's at 32 degrees. The sensor is wrong as it is impossible to freeze anywhere above 32.

How to set fridge temp


    1. The first thing you must know is that your refrigerator should be set at 37-38 degrees. Anything at 40 or higher and you are risking food born illness (food poisoning) or spoiling your food. Place your magnetic thermometer in the refrigerator.

    2. Set your dial on your refrigerator to the second lowest setting. (If your refrigerator is already equipped with a digital thermostat, simply set it for 37 or 38 degrees and do not move on to the next step)

    3. After 2 hours, check your thermometer reading. If your reading is 38 degrees, there is no need to go higher and you are ready to put your groceries in. Be sure not to open and close your refrigerator during these two hours or your temperature reading will be incorrect.

    4. If your reading is higher than 38 degrees, move your dial up to the next coldest setting and repeat the steps every two hours until you reach the correct temperature for your refrigerator.

    5. Once you have reached the correct refrigeration temperature for your refrigerator, place the magnetic thermometer in the refrigerator permanently and watch for changes.

    Typically, your refrigerator temperature will need to be adjusted with the seasons, a higher setting in the summer and a lower setting in the winter.

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator too cold


On a fridge freezer only the fridge temperature is monitored. In a cold location the fridge might not even need cooling and the freezer would get too warm but the thing won't care.

If the fridge sensor sees it as too warm then it will keep the motor running and the first thing to get really cold is the freezer.

Remember the freezing part is not temperature controlled ion a fridgefreezer.
