Question about True Refrigerators
Temperature not staying. Freezing produce in fridge. How do I set the temperature in it? I want to set it at 36 degrees. Right now it is at 40 degrees.

40 degree is a perfect temperature for produce if its lower that stuff will turn brown. Maybe you thermometer has failed. Go to the food store and get a red stick and put it in there. Then adjust with that temperature indication. Hope this helps and good luck.

It is possible it has a bad thermostat but most likely cause would be a bad damper motor. It is the vent inside the fridge that opens and closes, based on temp. setting, to allow cold air from the freezer into the fridge section.

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

SOURCE: Temperature setting
The fridge should be just above freezing, maybe 2 or 3 degrees celsius. The freezer should be around -15 degrees celsius. The outside temp doesn't matter as far as the settings go.

refrigerators have 2 coils. the evaporator coil and the condensing coil. one is on the bottom of the fridg and one is on the back or inside behind a false panel. these coils must be kept clean or if the condensing coil cannot reject the heat absorbed by the evaporator, the box temp will stay high and if the evap coil cant absorb heat the box temp stays low running the risk of freezing
