The door might not be sealing well but I'd rather put my money on compressor/freon problem - especially if you hear the compressor running for a long time (almost constantly). If you're lucky your fridge will only need to be refilled with freon.

Freezer temp cycles above freezing


If you have a frost free refrigerator then temp jumps as you discribe are somewhat normal during a defrost cycle. However it sound like your defrost temp may be getting too high. There is a limit thermostat on the freezer coils that keep the defrost temp from getting too high. The part is called a (defrost termination thermostat) and is a round disk about 1 to 1.5 inch in diameter clipped to the top of the freezer coils with 2 wires coming out of it. When cold, it allows power to the defrost heaters. At around 35/40 degrees it opens and shuts off power to the heater. 35/40 degrees sounds high for a freezer temp but that is behind the wall and only for a short time. Yours may be staying on too long or out of temp calibration needing replaced.

Why doesn't freezer get cold enough


If the thermostat is turned up and the freezer still remains at around 10 degrees I would suggest the system coolant has leaked or the compressor is faulty. Check that the door seals are not obstructed or broken, that will stop the freezer getting colder.

Freezer turns of in cold weather


Many residential refrigerator / freezers are designed to work at temperature considerably above above freezing. Most modern refrigerator / freezer have a single electric thermostat - located in the fresh food compartment. This lone thermostat will control the compressor to keep the fridge (fresh food) section at the desired temperature (usually between 34 - 38 degrees F). The freezer will get colder regardless of how cold it is already whenever the fridge thermostat turns the compressor on.

Now that you see how the thermostat works, let's look at what happens when the fridge is placed in an unheated space - like a garage. In winter time, the temperature can drop considerably below 38 degrees. If the outdoor temperature remains cold enough, for long enough - it will affect the thermostat in the fridge. The temperature inside the fridge could drop below 38 degrees, preventing the thermostat from telling the compressor to turn on. Meanwhile, the temperature in the freezer compartment slowly rises from the normal -10 to 0 F degrees. It will continue to rise until it is the same temperature as the fresh food compartment or until the thermostat in the fresh food compartment tells the compressor to turn on again. This means the freezer contents will thaw.

If the temperature in the garage is even in the 40 to 50 degree range, the loss of cold in the fridge may not happen often enough to keep the compressor coming on often enough to keep some freezer items frozen solid - such as ice cream. Remember, water freezes at 32 degrees F, other products may require lower temperatures to remain frozen, and could thaw at 28 or other temperature.

Good luck!

I have a Frigidaire model GLFU206FWA upright freezer. The temperature control won't go above 10 degree F. This causes freezer burn on some foods after a period of time. Is there a way to regulate the...


Good day,
Manufacturers of freezers do not give the option of running the machine much above that temperature. Normal operating temperature for a freezer is about -2 to about 8 above F.
Otherwise people could accidentally set the temp too warm and cause a loss of food.
Some appliance parts houses carry universal thermostats that could possibly cover the temperature range your looking for, but 30 degrees is far to warm to preserve frozen food safely.

Self defrosting fridge/freezer


Good day,
That is normal if the room or area is too cold. If the room temperature drops below 55 degrees Fahrenheit then that problem will start to show up.
All manufacturers state the machine will start to unbalance below that temperature.

My GE Refrigerator model GSL25JTFBBS stay in


Good day,
35 minutes would be considered nominal. That is the amount of time needed to heat up the cooling coils behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment, and then allow it to drain the condensate water out the drain.

The defrost cycle is made up of 2 parts.
The first part involves shutting all fans and compressor off, and turning on the heater/heaters mounted on the bottom of the cooling coil to above freezing. About 10 to 15 minutes.

The second half occures when a defrost thermostat mounted on the top of that coil senses the coil is above freezing. It cuts the power to the heaters, and lets the system just idle, while the water is allowed to drain out of the drain.

If that tstat is working properly, the food temperature is affected slightly but never to an above freezing condition.
The thermostat is a small 1" round disk clipped to the top of the coil.

Only one possibility, but that tstat could be hanging allowing the freezer coil compartment to reach a very high temperature. If so, it needs replaced.

You should also check to see if both fans and compressor start running as soon as the cycle is done.

Our Kitchenaid KBFA25ERSS01 freezer suddenly does not stay at 0 degrees. Fluctuates between 2 degrees and 12 degrees.


Sounds to me like you could have some serious problems. What you're seeing could be either the result of faulty electronics (i.e. the thermostat) or an even larger problem with the refrigeration system itself.

About the only thing that I could think of that could be repaired by the user would be the door seals if those are leaking. Anything more intensive than that though and your best bet is to contact a service person.

The freezeer works just fine, but the frige is only about 68 degrees. it is about 100 degrees outside here does affect operation.Frige and freezer have seperate temp adjust.


What is the temperature in the freezer? Anything below 32 degrees freezes water. Make sure condenser coil is clean and that air can flow over it freely. In the back behind a removable panel you will find the condenser. Clean it completely and make sure the fan operates when the compressor is running.. Also check for possible frost on the back wall of the freezer which would indicate a defrost problem. if there is frost there the problem is ether a bad timer, heater, or defrost thermostat.
