SOURCE: I don't know how to
You should have 2 dials one is the thermostat when you set it all the way one direction it will shut you refrigerator off. Turn it back to about the middle if there are no numbers. The other dial is the air damper between the freezer and the refrigerator. The fan circulates the air through refrigerator by this damper. If you open this open to much your food in the refrigeration section will freeze. Close it back to about 2 that will give you a colder freezer and should be about right for the refrigeration section.

Hi: It shouldn't need a recharge as your freezer is cold, and that's wher the fresh food section gets its cold from via a fan. If your vents are blocked with too much food in the freezer this will happen. If you have a problem with the defrost heater or timer frost will build and block the port to the fan, causing a warm fresh food section. If the circulating fan is out your f.f. section will get warm. It's a small fan not to be confused with the condenser fan below (at the grill.) Here's a question for you. Did the fresh food compartment work for the first week or two? That's how long it would take frost to build and jam the system if your defrost system is out. If this is the case you can unplug it and put your food in a cooler. Melt the frost with a hair dryer carefully avoiding plastic components. It will then work for a week or two before it fails again. It will get you buy until you get service. If you do it yourself... Look for the defrost heater in the freezer and see if the coil of wire in the glass tube is broken. You will need a service manuals or a parts list with a diagram. Sears parts on line has a good database of parts and diagrams. Hope this helped, Jeff

0 = off, 1 = cool, 2 = cooler, ..... 7 = coldest. 0 - 7 Nothing to do with the degree the fridge is set to.

The parts manual on that refrigerator show a defrost timer inside the fresh food compartment behind the control panel. Need you to turn the timer clockwise with a flathead screwdriver slowly until the compressor stops. Leave it alone for 30 minutes and if it does not turn itself back on then we need to replace the timer. If not we need to unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel inside the freezer. We will need to test the defrost heater and inspect the defrost thermostat. Let me know when you are ready. The part number for the timer is 68233-3
