Running continuously will certainly shorten the compressor life dramatically not the thermostat life.There are no moving parts in the thermostat. A good refridgerator will run for over 15 years under normal operation (cycling on and off). Running continuously is a **** shoot. depending on well it was made. How well the refridgerator is insulated will also help. If the insulation is not the best or insufficient in thickness etc the freezer may never get to -40. Keep the evaporator coils clean and well ventilated.

An appliance repair or parts supply place should be able to sell you a thermostat. Look in the yellow pages.

Change out the temperature controller ie thermostat with one that will go to -40 degrees. This will be very ******* the compressor and may even cause the comporessor to run continuously and that's not what they are designed to do.

This is in the garage and now it has come cold the freezer part has defrosted ?


Remember that the control is intended to keep the interior temperature of the refrigerator section at approximately 36F-40F for normal operation. If the garage temperature falls below this point the Refrigerator won't run again until Spring, or whenever the garage temperatures rise above the normal range for a long enough period of time. If you have sustained periods where you garage is below 40F it's likely you will Freeze everything in the refrigerator and break glass containers while The Freezer will be TOO warm.

This unit will not work properly where outside temperatures remain below 36F for extended periods of time.

Freezer is at 20F


The louvre that let's the air into the freezer is probably closed nearly ll the way shut, thus not allowing the cold air in. The same compressor runs the frig and freezer. Find where the air is coming in and there is where you should find your problem.

Refrigerator starts cooling mainly when I open the door


Put a thermometer in both the freezer and the fridge. Fridge should be around 40F if not a little lower, but should stay above 30F.

Freezer should be just below 30.

What are the factory suggested settings?


Half way between off and the coldest setting on the t-stat.
Your refrigerator should be from 36f-40f and the freezer should be around 5f-10f. I hope this helps you. Please leave feedback.
Thank you.

What are the correct temps. for freezer and main refrigerator


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.

Warm fridge cold freezer


Hi, With the information you supplied i'm going to assume there is an ice build up at the rear of the freezer. Your problem is going to be with your defrost system. I will also assume you have the ability to repair this yourself. This is going to be one of three problems with your refridgerator, 1st thing to do is remove shelfs and panel in the back of the freezer...you should see ice build up on the evaporator...don't worry get a hair dryer and melt the ice. Next locate the wires for the heater...using a multi meter test the heater for condinuity...if the heater is bad replace it, If the heater is good replace the defrost thermostat..the stat normally is a barrel looking part clipped onto the evaporator pipe. The last possible problem could be the evaporator fan, have you heard the fan running in the past few hours?..if you are not sure pull the panel out to where you can see fan and watch it over an hour to see if it turns. I have included links with pictures of what the parts you need to check are: http://romulusappliance.com/manufacturers/maytag/refrigerators/575432.JPG defrost stat http://www.hotekalliance.com/UploadFiles/2008627111553382.jpg heaters http://www.applianceblog.com/archives/EvapMotor1018185.jpg evap fan. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. If you decide to get a repair guy in should not cost you any more then $120 - $200 depending on make/model/problem Good luck & thanks for using fixya!
