That's gotta be a bad thermister. The ice box is cooling ok obviously so that means the controls are not in control! Some of these new fangled machines have as many as 6 thermisters. You need a repair manual bad to help you ID the whereabouts of these thermisters and how to check their OHM's values to determine which one is faulty. You can get a repair manual by going HERE

Have him put a thermometer in a cup of water overnight and set the upper freezer
knob to the middle position and the temp control to midpoint. The refrigerator temp should
be between 34 and 38 degrees. You can get a thermometer at walmart or an appliance
parts store. If you continue to have the problem then change out the defrost termination
thermostat (this was a common failure in many of my frigidaire units). It is located in
behind the freezer back panel, it is clipped to a tube and has two wires coming to it.
Remember to unplug unit before servicing. The part is under 20 dollars usually.
The model number is located in the fresh food compartment on the left side. Hope this helps

Frigidaire refrigerator with a broken freezer


He is correct. The temp in the refrig controls how often and for how long the refrig runs. Lets say the temp in your garage is 34 degrees, and you have your refrig set to 36 degrees: The refrig will never run, the fresh foods section will cool to 34, and the freezer will warm to 34. Even if the temp is 45 in the garage and you set the fresh foods to be 33, the refrig will not need to run long enough and often enough to keep the freezer temp cold enough. You will most likely need to have the ambient room temp at least 55 degrees to get satisfactory refrigerator performance. Insulating the refrig will not help. (by the way, outdoor beverage vending machines use an internal heater in cold weather to prevent liquid beverages inside from freezing,..... so using that info, you could put a low wattage heater in your refrig to make your refrig run enough to make the freezer section work. The %&#* with that, just move it into the house!)

What temp should the fridge and freezer each be?


According to FDA safetey specs bacteria can grow at 40 to 140 F degrees .Refrigeration must be below this number but above 32F to keep from freezing.

Never shuts off.Too cold


Try defrosting.
if you can move everything out unplug ,turn it off w/ doors open 6 to 12 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes. Set it at a low setting and keep an eye on it, If this doesn't work your thermostat may be going out.let me know.Good luck.

Cooler wont cool below 48 degrees.


Keep a thermometer handy. (adjust temperature control knob accordingly)
Periodically monitor temperatures inside your cooler. (adjust as necessary)
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible to avoid temperature fluctuations

The temperature of the refrigerator compartment is
controlled by adjusting/setting the thermostat control
knob, located on the ceiling of the refrigerator
cabinet.
To start the refrigerator, and achieve maximum
cooling quickly;
• Turn the temperature control knob (using a coin
or screwdriver) clockwise to the furthest
(maximum) setting on the darker blue section of
the graduated control dial.
• Allow the refrigerator to run at this setting for 3~4
hours.
• When maximum cooling is achieved, turn back
the temperature control knob setting to the 2:00
o'clock position on the graduated blue control
dial.
• Correct cooling temperature is a key factor to
consider in storing and dispensing draught beer.
• Optimum temperature for serving draught beer is
between 34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC)
• To maintain temperatures ranging between
34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC) We recommend the
thermostat knob be positioned at the "2:00
o'clock" setting on the graduated blue control dial.
• To turn off the refrigerator, (no cooling) rotate the
control knob to the "0" position.
