Refrigerator should not be warmer than 40F. Optimal temps are 34F, this keeps your food cold without freezing it and slows down bacteria growth !

Freezer section no warmer than 10F. Normal temp 0F, optimal/recommended -10F (also for cold icecream) and for quick recovery in case of power outages.

I hope this helps.

    You're very welcome - I would like to correct a typo in my post - I meant -10F for hard icecream, not cold icecream, obviously :)

Freezer too cold


Is this a model=>FGHC2342LF Sounds like the freezer=> 240597203 Thermistor may be defective??There should be one in the freezer that regulates the temp and this one may be causing the compressor to run continious and you may not be getting the correct reading from freezer. Have you seen this?

Top freezer works but main frig does not


The way a refrigerator / freezer works is a single cooling coil in the freezer controlled with a thermostat. There is a fan that blows cold air down into the refrigerator section. There is another control that is just a vent control that changes the size of the opening for air flow. if the fan fails you don't get good cooling in the refrigerator section or if the defrost is not working correctly ice will build up and also stop the flow of air to the refrigerator. You should be able to hear the fan working inside the freezer. Replacing a fan motor is much simpler than troubleshooting an icing problem. There are several components that can cause defrost to not work. Bad temp cutoff switch, defrost timer or heater element could be causing that problem. With the unit unplugged and heater element disconnected you can use an ohm meter to measure resistance of the heater, should measure some resistance. Same with cutoff you should measure resistance when cold and none when above cutoff temp. Room temp is well above cutoff and use ice water to see if it closes.

Ice melting in ice maker


Remove the food from the lower shelves , so the inside rear lower freezer panel can be removed ( only 2 or 4 screws ) .
The # 4 thermistor or # 5 thermistor is bad . # 4 tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted and when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp and when to cycle off / on , due to temp setting .

I have a Kenmore side by side refrigerator freezer and the fan will not stop running. The refrigerator is cooling fine but the fan is running continuously.


The fan must run otherwise the temp. cant be correctly distributed. If temp. is correct, leave alone. If temp. to cold, turn it down untill correct. Fan will very possibly switch off then.

Unplug refrigerator and see if the top of compressor is too hot to keep you hand on. My drawing show the control bord in the area of the compressor and inside a box.
