Question about Refrigerators
I have replaced defrost timer, and both thermostats in both compartments
Several suggestions. If the compressor is running the thermostats are calling for cooling. Replacing them will not make any difference. Clean the condenser and be sure the fan is operational. If that does not solve it I would suggest getting a service tech to help you, you probably are low on gas because of a very small leak.

You said, you recently had a problem with my Candy fridge freezer (it defrosted overnight and wasnt cooling at all) and a repair shop diagnosed a thermostat problem. I have replaced the thermostat, Now the freezer freezes without any problems but the fridge does not go cold at all.
Also the compressor is running constantly
This is my first thought
Fresh Food temperature is
too warm. Freezer
temperature is satisfactory.
1. Fresh Food control is set too
2. Set fresh food control to a colder setting. Allow 24
hours for temperature to stabilize.
3.Then see if you do not have your freezer articles packed full up to the top, or covering the cold air vents usually found in the rear of the freezer compartment.
The fridge and the freezer share the cold air so the air must not be restricted from travel form the freezer to the fridge and back!
This would also cause the compressor to run none stop trying to cool the fridge!
So check your air vents in the freezer.
I'll bet you did not know they were there !
Most of us never notice!
Hope this works for you.
Please let me know that one of these solutions worked for you!
or if you have any questions.
Thank You, huuum

I had this issue as well, techs replaced the control board and problem solved. Mine was done under warranty during the first year, hope yours isn't too expensive.

Either the thermostat is set to high or you need to replace the thermostat.adjust it to 1/2 way position position and if temp is to cold and it doesnt want to switch off, it means the thermostat is faulty.

I had this fixed and it was the Defrost heater and the part that makes it come on he had to splice it in so I am glad I didn't try to do it my self parts and labor my bill was $168.00
