Your refrigerator is has something called a Thermistor located in freezer, ice maker and fresh food section.

Refrigerator freezing up

I was told by Sears to turn my thermostat to the refrigerator side down in the summer months to eliminate the freeze up. Seems that opening the door more often in summer makes it think it needs to dool more.

thermostate stuck in defrost mode. sometimes they are inside frig(were temp controls are) sometimes in bottom rear of frig. IF you can find it you will find a small knob with slit in it. turn it clockwise just a little and clicking will stop and frig will start cooling however it will probably do it again. recommend replace thermostate.

Where can I get instructions for thermostat replacement in Tefal FV8225 steam iron

I suggest to remove the bad thermostate and try to buy a similar one. First remove the scew which fix the thermostate on the iron base. Then carefully disconnect the two wires and mark them in order to connect correctly the new one. I used to make a litlle sketch.
But before buying a new thermostate, you should test the thermic fuse (a small component placed into a thermic "sleeve" and fixed with a small brace screwed to the base) as when the thermostate jams this fuse burns out, giving a second protection.

My landlord just gave me this fridge and it appears that one thermostate controls freezer and fridge. I am not sure what temperature to set it at as the freezer is getting cold but the fridge is not real...

if this is a self defrosting ref. it should do it by itself. one knob on the right will make your ref cooler by making your freezer controls a vent that lets cold air from your freezer. try that ok.

I have a Kenmore fridge with the freezer on the bottom model # 52600. What is happening is the fridge is not cooling but the freezer works.If you have any suggestion please e-mail me. thanks

if the freezer is ok,the damper of the ref side is close need to adjust or replace,2 is the sensor is the sensor is defective the ref side not cooling even the sensor of freezer side if defective may cause why not cooling in ref side,its hard explain to remove or to check the unit by its your self,much better call an service technician to check what the exactly coz why not cooling,and you get a warranty for the service compare you buy a part,but you dont know what how to test the part if is ok or not.

My refrigerator model #hmg6414 will freeze for

if the rear frz back wall frzs up id say you have a defrost problem. 3 things it could be a heater, a defrost thermostat or a defrost timer .
if the unit runs for 2 weeks good then stops and doesnt come back on. id say your timer is bad. usually located behind ref in rear btm.part # 68233-3 roughly 55.00-100.00 depending on were you live. if works 2 weeks good then rear wall freezes up then your heater or thermostat is bad. heater # 61001874 roughly 39.99-69.99 depending were you live and who u use. if defrost thermost part # 52085-29 roughly 29.99-49.99. again depending on who u use. labor between 85-175 .hope this helps you . the heater can be tested if you have a ohm meter touch each end of meter leads to each side of heater if you get a reading on ohms its good, no reading means bad heater thats if the rear wall freezes in back only. defrost thermostat cannot be tested properly.

Freezer is cold but not freezing the ref is not cold

Simple! Refrigerent leak only results in poor cooling. Check your thermostate also to make double sure of the cause.

Water dispenser on GE side by side not working. what should the refrigerator and freezer settings be? Can that be the problem?

Dispenser controls on any refrigerator actuate one of two things. Ice disp, or water disp. If the IM is not working also, then H20 valve is bad. If just the H20 disp feature isn't working in the door, try this: remove food and unplug unit for 24 hours. Then, plug back in and resume normal operation. If all checks ok, you have a frozen water tank, or frozen water line. Fix: on certain model ref's, there is a water tank service flash where an antifreeze insulation kit should be installed, contact Sears or your retailer for this information. On others, this is simply a freeze up caused by lack of H20 usage or temps in ref/freezer set too low. If this does not fix the water supply, and you still have ice production after 2-5 hours after restarting the ref, remove the dispenser cover and test the water supply actuator switch for continuity. of open after drepression, replace switch. If switch checks ok, then replace water valve as on side of the solonoid valve assy is not functioning. In rare cases, you may have to check or replace the wiring harness. This can be tested only after elimenating the disp switch test, and calling for H20 from the disp, voltage at the disp wires to the H20 valve, but no voltage recieved at the h20 valve, or by an ohm reading of the wires.
