Re: Inability to adjust temp controls

5,6,7 is a fault code saying the defrost circuit is not working. The unit only goes into defrost about once a day so that explains why it works for a while then comes back.

The unit will not turn off on its own.

With all the extra running---are you getting frozen items in the fresh food section?? You have to understand that if the refrigerator was running all the time and for instance had a stuck on temperature control, you would be getting frozen items like lettuce, eggs, etc in the fresh food section. If that is not happening then the refrigerator needs to run until the cold control turns it off. Set both controls to the middle setting and let it run without playing with it for 24 hours and see if it turns off on its own. Frost free refrigerators average run times of 50% to 75% on time depending on how warm the room temperature actually is. If after 24 hours it is still running and some of your Fresh food is freezing then you do have a bad temp control.

Westinghouse RJ532, 530 Litre, Frost Free Fridge/Freezer keeps stopping - if we move the little red dial in the fridge under the air temperature control it starts up again, goes for awhile and then stops....

If the refrigerator was tipped on back or side, even part way, it has to wit upright at least overnight, because of the freon flowing upward.
If you just moved in and it has been sitting and unplugged, then it may be low on freon.

Here are some tips

If you open the fresh food compartment of your fridge (the non-freezer compartment), you will most likely see two different controls. One refers to the refrigerator temperature and the other refers to the freezer. Different manufacturers use different wording, but the idea is the same.
The first thing you need to know in order to understand what these controls really do is that all the cold air in the entire refrigerator is made in the freezer compartment. A portion of that cold air is then blown into the fresh food compartment. How much cold air gets blown in is controlled by the "freezer" control, which is really just an air baffle that opens or closed to let more or less air into the fresh food compartment. The "refrigerator" control is actually a thermostat that feels the temperature inside the fresh food compartment and turns the compressor on and off according to the temperature that the thermostat feels.
Let’s run through an example. Suppose you decide that your ice cream isn’t hard enough. You adjust the "freezer" control to make your freezer colder. What you’re actually doing is restricting the amount of cold air that gets blown from the freezer into the fresh food compartment and so keeping more of the cold air in the freezer. As a result, the freezer will get colder but also the fresh food compartment will tend to get warmer because its cold air supply has been diminished. The "refrigerator" control (the thermostat) will feel this increase in temperature inside the fresh food compartment and will keep the compressor running longer in order to maintain the temperature setting on the "refrigerator" control. So, you can see that any change you make to one control will affect the other.
Many people then wonder, "Well, how do I know what the correct setting on the controls should be?" Since the temperature inside a refrigerator will vary according to lots of external factors such as frequency and duration of door openings, it is impossible to say where your controls should be set all the time in order to maintain a desired temperature in the freezer and fresh food compartments without knowing the actual temperature inside both compartments. For this reason, you should place two thermometers in your refrigerator: one in the fresh food compartment (the big one) and the other in your freezer. The controls should then be adjusted to achieve -10 to +10ºF in the freezer and between 36 and 38ºF in the fresh food compartment.
Keep in mind, too, that it takes 24 hours for any change in the controls to work through the system and reach steady state so don’t look for instantaneous changes in temperature when you make control setting changes. Knowing the actual temperature inside your refrigerator compartments is also a great way to save money on your power bill since you can adjust the controls to avoid running your compressor longer than needed to keep your food cold.

Can't set the temp it blinks 0

If "0F 0F" appears on the display, the refrigerator is in DEMO MODE. To exit Demo Mode for controls on the outside of door, Press and Hold the Energy Saver and Adjust Freezer buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. To exit Demo Mode for controls inside the Fresh Food Compartment, Press and Hold the Ice Off and Freezer buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. You will hear a beep and "0F 0F" will no longer be displayed. Adjust Refrigerator and Freezer temperature to the desired settings. Allow 24 hours for temperatures to stabilize.

Yes the thermister is the electronic thermostat...on models such as yours that has a computer control a thermister is used..on models that the knob is turned to set the temp. and has no digital dispay a thermostat is used

The part number for the thermister is 2188819
It fits by air damper in the fresh food compartment in the upper left corner of the fresh food compartment

Food in the fridge part keeps freezing even with setting at highest temp

if its at the highest setting, i.e., the largest number or letter, you have it at the COLDEST setting, and it will freeze in the refrigerated secion. Reset all controls to normal, which is the middle setting. so if your scale range is 1-9, middle setting would be 5, if scale is A-E, middle is C and so on.
After you reset controls, it will take 24 hours for temps to balance themselves out. Your food may take longer to thaw out, so dont go buy whether food is still frozen, instead place a thermometer in the center of the fresh food side. your fridge temp should be in the 35-40°F range. If after 24 hours your fridge section is still below 32, Then you do have a problem, but LG is not a simple unit to diagnose, impossible to do without inspection.

Kenmore refrigerator Freezer is cold but fresh food side is warm

Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

My GE profile side by side refrigerator's temperature is not staying where I put it. It keeps popping to 31 degrees when I set it for 37 degrees. My food is freezing !!

It may need to defrost. Shut it off for 4-5 hours to let any accumulated ice to defrost and see what happens.

There also is a control that directs more cooling to the refridgerator or the freezer compartment. It may need to be readjusted. It will take 24 hours to stabilize.

Refridgerater doesnt get cold enough.

Things to check.......Is the evaporator (freezer) fan motor running? If not you could have a bad motor
Do you see a build up of frost on the interior rear wall of the freezer? Problem in the defrost system. This includes the heater, terminator or control.

In addition a bad fresh food damper control or blocked return air duct could be restricting airflow into the fresh food compartment.

Ideal temps should be 0 to 10 above in the freezer and 36 to 42 in the fresh food compartment. This can be measured by submerging a thermometer in a cup of vegetable oil that has been in the freezer for 24 hours. The same can be done in the fresh food compartment where a cup of water will do the trick. Higher freezer temps could indicate a more serious problem in the sealed system.
