Question about Refrigerators

Refrigerator is freezing things at low settings

The thermostat was just replaced and since then the refrigerator is running to cold. It's usually set at 5 (freezer and Refrig), but now we have it set a 1 and the refrig side is still at 26-28 degrees. The freezer is set at 3 and the temp on that side is -10.

The thermostat ???? Without knowing what the original problem was, I can only guess that this the original problem.The cold control is only as good as the devices circulating the air in the refrigerator. You probably have a damper control problem. Make sure the damper between the freezer and the fresh food sections is operating properly.

Bad defrost timer/ thermostat???


It definitely sounds like you have a bad defrost timer, that is the reason the coils are icing up on you. The next issue, which may or may not be related is the freezing of items in the refrigerator. Usually the cold air is transferred, through a vent with a damper, from the freezer and into the refrigerated section. The "thermostat" for this section is actually usually just a lever to adjust the position of the damper. That being said, usually when you have a problem such as you are having, it is either a stuck or broken damper (or damper component). Hope this helps

Food in my refrigerator freezes I have a top freezer maytag


There are 2 things to check - Your cold control dial - to rule out a thermostat problem lower it to 1 gradually and slowly until you hear a click and it shuts off - If it does not shut off, and only shuts off if you set it to the OFF position, then you have a thermostat problem and your compressor is continually running, freezing things in your refrigerator. If lowering your dial you hear a click and compressor shuts off, then the solution is to lower your dial, you have it set too cold - There is a thermostat in your refrigerator that should shut things off when it is cool enough it's either not working properly or your dial is set too cold.

Fridge compartment too cold.


Most bottom mount freezer units work by diverting some of the cold freezer air up to the refrigerator through a duct that vents to the top of the refrigerator A thermostat in the refrigerator closes a flap in the duct when the refrigerator is cold enough.

It seems like the thermostat or flap is not working in your refrigerator. You can troubleshoot this by turning the refrigerator to the full warm setting and turning the freezer knob in the cold direction until you hear the refrigerator turn on. Place your hand near the vent at the top of the refrigerator, if cold air comes out that means the flap is not closing like it should.

If the flap is not closing, it might be frosted open. Pop the plastic vent off (they are usually held in with snaps) and inspect the flap. It should open when the fridge knob is turned in the cold direction and close when it is turned in the warm direction. If there is no frost jamming the flap, and the flap is not moving, the thermostat is likely defective. See the pictures below, one is flap open and the other is flap closed.c0498df.jpg67c95ca.jpg

Freeing food in refrigerator, even vegetables in vegetable tray


You have 2 dials in the refrigerator. One is the thermostat setting the cold temp in the freezer, the other is a damper that allows cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator. Set the thermostat to the middle then try closing down the damper, most say colder or warmer refrigerator. If the damper is closed and your refrigerator is still freezing, then I would guess that the thermostat is bad. A thermostat runs about 40 to 60 dollars wholesale. Retale should be about double.
