Compact refrigerators that have a freezer compartment do not have seperate controls since they are cooled by the same evaporator and it is not designed to reach true freezer temperatures. It should get cold enough to freeze water for ice. If it were allowed to get much colder there would be problems preventing the refrigerated section from getting too cold. Therefore, you will have to find a setting that provides a good compromize. You should be able to keep frozen dinners and such cold enough to prevent them from thawing but I would not store meats too long in that freezer and ice cream will get soft. I hope this answers your question. - Subdriver

My refridgerator freezes the milk, How do i stop it from doing that? The temperature setting is in the normal range and the condensor coil is clean.


There are two setting on a fridge. One that sets the temp of the freezer and one that adjusts the temp of the fridge part. The fridge setting just adjusts the opening between the freezer and the fridge. So the fridge gets it's cool by stealing a little from the freezer. i'd get a fridge thermometer and set it it the fridge and see what the temp really is. The knobs in the fridge may not be accurate. Set the fridge and then move the thermometer over to the freezer and set that. Move back and forth until you get what you want. Usually the lower part of the fridge is a little colder then the top. However if you use the fridge a lot then every time you open the door the cold falls out and the fan will come on and start taking cold from the freezer. Another very cold spot is next to the vent where the cold air comes out from the freezer. Usually up top near the ice maker.

Sanyo mini refridgerator won't get cold


This sounds to me like your fridge might be in defrost mode. There should be a switch up toward the top of the fridge near the cold setting. It's not always very visible, but feel around for a little round hole. There should be a small, plastic rod sticking out. Push it back in. (If it's out.) If this is the problem, you should hear the compressor turn on and the fridge should start cooling off again. If you still have the owners manual, it'll probably point you to its exact location.

I hope this helps! :)

Simpson fridge stopped working. The freezer still goes but not the fridge part. At the time the power fuse box overloaded (around the same time as the fridge died). Not sure if that was connected but power...


Hi,

If this is a standard upright fridge (freezer at top), then the usual principle applies: cold air drops.

A small fan (situated between freezer & fridge) should be functioning, which forces cold air from the freezer, down into the refridgerator.

I would recommend you first determine if this small fan is operating (this is the noise you would normally hear, when you open the freezer door) and if not, then replace the fan.

If fan is working, then I would suspect a faulty thermister which would require a technician.

With repairs of older devices, it's always best to obtain quotes first, as often the cost of repair could well amount to up to 40% of the price of a new one.

Good luck...

Drain in fridge is clogged - ice formation under crisper drawers


We have cleared / de-frosted the drain twice and it keeps freezing up, causing the accumulated ice problem to recur. Should the freezer settings be changed?

Red alarm light is on on Westinghouse upright freezer


Most probably during transportation either the coolant(previously freon gas) may have leaked out so the pressure on the cooling pipeline causing the red alarm because the compressor will overheat if the fridge is kept running at very cold thermostat readings and no effect of cooling the fridge will ultimately result in the compressor getting burnt. However fist have look at thermostat setting knob which could have loosened during transportation and just pushed into the spindle without knowing the correct angle, thus even though it looks as if on high cool but could also be the lowest setting..........sodeep

LOOSE DOOR HANDLE ON GE PROFILE ARCTICA STAINLESS STEEL REFRIDGERATOR


I may need to know your model # from the sticker inside the fridge to view a diagram but usually there is are small set screws (usually 2) on the handle which are allen head that can be tightened.  Look for this first and let me know if there are no set screws.  If this is your setup then I would appreciate a solved rating.
