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.

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.

-40 F Freezer


MINUS FORTY DEGREES IS TOO EXTREME FOR A FOOD FREEZER. IF YOU ARE GOING TO USE IT FOR SOMETHING ELSE, YOU WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO REPLACE THE CONTROL WITH SOMETHING ELSE. MOST STANDARD FREEZER CONTROLS ARE DESIGNED FOR TEMPS BETWEEN -10 AND +10 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT.
