SOURCE: frig temp not stable

Chances are your control dial is bad, your thermostat has gone bad or your compressor has freezen over. As bad as it may seem to trouble shoot this, unplug your frig., to "defrost" then plug back in. If this does not solve the problem, you may need to replace the thermostat or control dial.

The problem is usually a defective defrost control or defrost system, in some case the temp control may be faulty. The defrost system causing the problem is far more common.
If this model has a temperature sensor for the freezer, check also the sensor.

About the problem:

If the unit is cooling down regularly and then going off after about 8 hours, then it is the defrost timer. The part must be replaced.

If there is ice on top of the evaporator coil, then the problem is still defrost system. Defrost timer, defrost thermostat, heater element and fan must be tested.

If the unit is not responding, and the temperature is changing erratically, or the fridge is not working at all,then the problem can also be the temperature control. This basically means that the electronic control board located in control assembly (behind the panel where you set the temperature) is defective. The part is difficult to test.

Start disconnecting power overnight. This will allow full defrost and will also reset the electronic control. If the next day the fridge and freezer sections are working, then the problem is the defrost system (AKA evap). The problem will restart in one or more days, when the defrost system failure starts putting the condenser under stress.

Here below a short article I wrote some time ago. It shows how to do the repair on a Kenmore fridge. Part location and some part name will be differently, but it is useful to understand how repair is done (it explains how to test parts): When the fridge is not cooling ...

Here parts and diagrams for this model:

How do you adjust freezer temp?

You should have a dial either in the frig or freezer to adjust temp. Once it is set it takes a day to change

Frigidaire frig. model#FGHC2331PF7 is dripping onto top shelf and the filter has ice cycles and what temp should freezer and frig be

If it's brand new and leaking, call the place you bought it from and have them fix it. As for the temp settings; there is a center default in the freezer and you should start there, the fridge also has a default which should be OK. If you need it colder turn it up in small increments and give it a day before you make any additional adjustments. The "cold" in a fridge or freezer also depends on how much stuff you have in the unit, and how often you have the door open.

The actual temperature of my oven does not agree with what it says on the digital readout in the clock area. I have been told that you can adjust the reading of the clock, but I cannot find the service...

Press bake and set temp. to highest setting on some it's 500 on others it's 550 aftef setting to highest bake setting. Press and hold bake button until 00 is displayed,use up/down arrows to adjust in 5 degree incriments to plus/minus 35 dergees . ONce you've adjusted it push cancel/off button and you adjustment will be stored even if power loss and clock went out.
If your temp is more than 35 degrees off the clock needs to be replaced

Frig side does not cool. freezer side cools

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Freezer works, frig doesn't

there is a fan on many newer units that blows cold air from the freezer side to the frig. If that fan is not working, the frig will be cool, but not 34° like you want it.

Hi, yes, your thermostat could be faulty, yes there should vent( damper), check controls on freezer side, controls amount of cold air going to ref. side, yes could be stuck by ice, yes both adjustment are necessary, check manual, some thermostat are very sensitive, you should adjust gradually, wait for about 40 minutes, before adjusting again. yes there's vent flap (damper) yes that could be your problem, normally they get stuck with ice, remove covers to locate it., you 're smart, you will see, damper, good luck.
