    sea breeze-thank you for your quick response.
    the fridge is a GC2225PEKW
    is this the defrost thermostat that is faulty?
    also - is it a job i can do myself- ie accesable? i am reasonably competent at doing work on electronic items.

Your thermostat is defective and if you would look for the model number bottom right corner of fresh food door I will tell what number to replace it with. Thanks, Sea Breeze

    Thank You, this is the most likely problem. Part number 12868513

    Un plug and have a look at the part for burn marks, loose connecrions or sighns of heat. This part is a 2 piece control board that signals temperatur and other functions. I will study the wiring diagram and see if there other possibilities. Sea Breeze

    If you are reasonably competent at doing work on electronic items then you should have no problem. The people that concern me are the ones that put their hands on something and have no clue to the dangers. My experience in the last 40 years was mostly hands on. But I always admit if I don't know what I'm doing and do not blow smoke to make people believe I'm the king of science. I have worked with lasers and 20,000 volts dc voltage. Plant maintenance and been a supervisor. Over the years I have learned a lot. I have made mistakes and one of the worst was when I did not take the keys to a car of one my best friend. He was killed that night and I never get over the guilt of not demanding the keys. He was my former boss.

    Anyway we will get this fixed and if you stick with me and my team of experts we will get you a FixYa!

    Thanks, Sea Breeze

My Maytag Dual Pro top freezer is running too cold.

freezer should be -15 and that is about 4-5 c on the knob
fridge should be around 4-5 C which is around +3 C
frost build up is from door opened too often , for too long or bad door seals
It is more prevalent when the ambient humidity is above 50% as it is the water vapour in the air condensing on the cold surfaces

Westinghouse freestyle fridge &freezer work but warm after being turned off fo 90 days

What happens in that 72 hours is the evaporator coil get's so much frost built up on it that the fan in the evap. freezer fan has no where to circulate the cold air (where the cold is produced). Basically you have a restriction between freez/fridg. sections you have defrost problem> It is one of three things d heater,d t stat, or your d timer.I need the model # to tell you what my sugestions would be and where to start.

Temperature too cold even when on lowest

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. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Produce freezing

I had the same problem when one of my kids changed the setting of the chef's pantry (full-width drawer) to higher setting and everything started freezing. The setting should be at "lowest setting". Give it a try. deborah.
