French door water is too warm


Good Afternoon friend, thanks for your post!
With a French door refrigerator the water will come directly from your tap. If you would like to have the water colder you may need to run your faucet to allow the water to become colder before getting from your water dispenser. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

The dial on my water c ooler has a +and -which is colder?


My guess is that moving the setting in the + direction makes it colder. My refrigerator uses numbers; the higher the number, the colder it gets

Refrigerator freezing food


Fridge thermostat dials are often problematical due to the ones that are numbered 1 to 10, is 1 the warmest or the coldest as the number is lower? Some companies put 'warmer' and 'colder' which avoids confusion. My advice, put it in the middle '5', and leave overnight, check the temperature in the morning with a fridge thermometer. Then change the thermostat dial to 8, and check it the next morning with a thermometer. The next day put it on 1, and leave overnight, check the temperature in the morning. If the thermostat has gone, all three morning temperatures will be the same.

You mention 'or as your website suggests', you know we are not Frigidaire or anything to do with the retailer? We are Fixya, people just like you, helping others. I am a caterer, and just happen to know about fridges. I get them repaired professionally, but always ask for a full explanation of what went wrong. We recently had a sandwich storage fridge that was freezing food, and it was the thermostat that needed replacing.

The things you did, cleaning the coils, will actually make the fridge run colder. The Defrost Thermostat is unlikely to be the problem, as when they don't work, the evaporator, the part that is where the chilled air comes from turns into a block of ice. When that happens, air can't pass through it and the fridge warms considerably.

Due to the damage this freezing is causing with your water and filter, I would suggest you call a service engineer and get it fixed professionally as you will be swapping out parts that are fine. Correct diagnosis is the key, and they will also check the gas pressure at the same time. Consumers can't work with refrigerant gas, it is *******.

Refrigerator less than two months old. Freezer side fine refrigerator side stopped working altogether. All food ruined. Who should I contact. purchased from Home Depot.


This is a very common issue, If the freezer compartment is cold and making ice the
problem is simply airflow from the freezer into the refrigerated section.
Typically when one senses the refrigerator is warm they max out the settings
on both dials the thermostat with its 1-10 settings as well as off for the compressor.
This controls the compressor and temperature.
The additional setting or dial is for colder freezer or refrigerator as well , However
it simply opens or closes a flapper door between the freezer and refrigerator boxes.
When that dial or setting is maxed , it closes and makes the freezer colder, yet leaves the refrigerated section starved for sufficient airflow to maintain a cold box in the refrigerated section.
Just set the dial that does not turn the compressor off to the middle setting.
One can leave the thermostat that does control the compressor in the max setting , just not the colder freezer setting, If you notice colder isnt colder refrigerator, Its actually colder freezer, A common issue found on 25% of all refrigerator calls a simple setting adjustment.
Its easy to think that maxing out the settings makes for a colder refrigerator, it doesnt, it makes a colder freezer and warm rerigeration section.
If a freezer is making ice, theres nothing wrong with the unit other than airflow setting.

My GE TFX30PP is constantly running and doesn't turn off. The freezer is very cold but the frig side isn't cold enough. A repair guy put in a new "cold contol" sensor but it didn't help.

I would also clesan the condenser coils off.

My Roper refrigerator stopped getting cold, although the refrigerator lights and the fan in the freezer works. What is the problem?


If the freezers warm, possible defrost timer bad, if freezers cold, set to middle setttings on both dials, the 1-10 OFF dial operates the compressor, the COLDER/WARMER dial operates the flapper door that regulates freezer air into the reefer box, if set to max cold that makes cold freezer, not reefer.

Please help fix my fridge


mine did that and it was due to a frozen water line that blew out the thermostat. See if the water line is frozen first. It was located on my refrigerator behind the crisper drawers. the tech had me use a hair dryer to thaw out the line
