This could be normal cycling,,
when you turn it down does it ever come back up
if not you have self diagnosed it
you need a new thermostat

How can I turn up the fridge settings. It's not cold enough


you need to turn down the settings of a fridge --the lower the number on the control knob the colder the fridge
it is the freezer that the system is reversed where the lower the number the warmer the freezer

Hi!
Here's an answer for you:

Setting the fridge knob to 10 will get it to the coldest possible

That means, lower is WARMER

Refrigerator top rack is warm. Temperature shows 65 degrees


if your freezer can make ice and the ice is dry, the problem is simply air flow into the refig section. A very common cause for a service call that wasnt needed for reefers is the settings. One setting OFF 1-10 usually, operates the compressor. The remaining setting will say , for colder freezer or similar, It opens a little flapper door between the freezer and the fridge section. If you set that one to max or coldest freezer it will actually starve out the fridge section for air ,and you get a cold freezer and warmer box! It happens everytime someone has the problem , its too warm! they peg both controls to coldest! The compressor will coll the freezer sufficiently even if set to 1 and the fridge should be cool too if the setting isnt pegged to coldest setting thus closing down fridge air and making the freezer colder which isnt ever required!

Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

Temperature control


I would suggest buying a little refrigerator thermometer.
Turn the t-stat all the way up to the coldest setting. Watch the thermometer by checking it from time to time when it reaches 36 to 38 degrees slowly turn the t-stat down till you here the compressor shuts off. Remember water freezes at 32 degrees.
