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.

SOURCE: food stays frozen regardless of temperature setting

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.

SOURCE: Freezer not cold enough; fridge OK

Hello cokoliso,
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.

SOURCE: GE Profile refrigerator temperature problem

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

What's the highest temperature I should be seeing if my dial is set to 1?

If the thermostat has a control on it, you can perhaps decalibrate it so that the unit shuts off at a higher temperature than normal.

You need to put a thermometer inside with what you are storing. The numbers will vary and are for reference only. Temperature should be 35 to 37 degrees f. Adjust number on dial once every 2 hours or so. Give the system time to react and cycle at least 3 times before taking a temperature reading. Good luck and hope this helps.

All refrigeration equipment has some sort of temperature control, either a temperature control knob(1,2,3,4 or A,B,C,D settings) or the unit has a pressure control to control the box temperature. The pressure control would be in the bottom of the case with the compressor.

The beverages in my True refrigerator are frozen

Definitely a thermostat problem. Make sure that it is set on #3, make sure you have something in the box to provide a constant load (if you are worried about product freezing just put several gallons containers of water in there), set a thermometer on a shelf and let it run for several hours. Temperature should run 35-40f If it still freezes I recommend changing the thermostat. Not the easiest job on a True but the only real option. If it is too warm then raise the setting to #4 and run for several hours more and double check the temperature. It is normal for these box temperatures to "swing" quite a bit especially if empty. The thermostat actually senses coil temperature and not unit air temperature. Typically it cycles off when the coil reaches around 14f and then back on when the coil gets to around 38-40f.

GDM-26 humidity very high

assuming fridge is at correct temp, i suspect fault is with your humidity detector. the humidity inside a fridge is a lot less than the outside air
