    As I said in my request, the thermostat checks out. I don't think it is the problem.

Although it will open and close in test mode the fact that it won't adjust in normal operation indicates that the control or it's connections are bad.

According to a general idea your thermostat is malfunctioning. I am guessing when you set the Thermostat, either it doesnt cool at all or it just runs on full. I f that is the case your Thermostat is surely faulty.

    If everything is checking out just fine then why is there ice where there should be cool water. Please get your thermostat checked out by a professional repair person or contact the manufacturers.

I have a Kenmore Fridge Model 596-729-12200


fb4dfaa6-7995-4ceb-a384-cb74f4ab1f6a.jpgThe fresh food section has a 67003410 Damper that has a thermostat probe that senses the fresh food section temperatures and then regulates the fresh food section cold air from freezer by opening and closing to maintain a set temperature. If defective the damper may remain closed or remain closed. You can test the damper by removing and placing the temperature probe into a glass filled with ice and no water. The damper should close in the ice and open when not in the ice. I will be here to answer any questions you have, Thanks Sea Breeze

My ge profile arctica is about 9 years old. It is freezing food in the refrigerator, temp control is set at a 4 and the thermometer inside reads anywhere from 28 -40 in various areas of the fridge. Milk...


first run the diagnostics on the unit from the tech sheet inside the unit,then if thermistors are bad replace these there are 2 one on the left and one on the right wall in both fridge and freezer,if good per diagnostics then replace the electronic damper door located between the fridge and freezer compartments in the upper left hand corner of the fridge behind the plastic grille as these doors break and jamb open or shut and the temps can no longer be regulated during the diagnostics tests you can hear this door operate if its operating correctly,lastly,if these fail to solve your problem,replace the main control board in the back behind a panel

Amana side by side model ARS9269BS dispenses water very slowly.\r\nReplacing filter did not help. Now, also, the produce and liquids are freezing even though we have turned cooler control to the number 2.


Hello,
The water dispensing and the things freezeing is related. The problem is a the air damper that located in the upper left side wall of the freshfood section is sticking open and allowing too much cold air to flow into the freshfood compartment and that damper needs to be replaced. The part number for that damper asm. is 12571701 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;
searspartsdirect.com
repairclinic.com
apwagner.com
appliancepartspros.com

You coull semi regulate the temp for now by turning off freezer control off overnight and back on in the morning till the damper can be replaced.

Temperature regulation not working (max only), water dispenser not working and ice maker not working although dispenser works


The symtoms sound all to common on GE units. Based on your symtoms I suspect the fresh food area is to cold. The damper assy is controled by the motherboard / thermistors. This damper assy adjusts to control the air movement from the freezer. During its cycling it can snap loose when this happens the air from the freezer is uncontroled. Within a few days the fresh food compartment temps can drop below freezing. The drop in temp also can freeze the water reservoir behind the lower crispers and in some cases the water filter. Altho You may have other issue (i.e. filter, bad fill valve assy, motherboard) the above statement happens 70% of the time. Fresh food damper assy part# WR49X10091 est $135.00.

My refridgerator is freezing some of my food a lot lately and now my temperature alarm is going off and the fridge temp is flashing from 38 to 56. i'm not sure what to do.


There are about six models that fall close to your model MFI2568AE
I have a feeling that if the fresh food section is freezing the food and the air damper is remaining open or you either have a problem with the air damper or the thermistor that opens and closes the damper that regulates that 38 degree temperature. These model are a little complex for some people but if you feel comfortable checking a few thing and using electrical testing meters then we can fix this together. Let me know and I will send you the service manual and we will go through this step by step, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Liquids frozen in refrigerator, no water from water dispenser


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. 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.
