    if it keeps freezing suspect a bad thermostat and verify that freezer fan runs.

    also verify defrost element... and if your unit uses a defrost timer, check that too make sure that the wheel turns without problem if an adaptive defrost board, suspect it faulty.

How do I unstick the temperature control knob in my freezer? It will not budge. My freezer is over freezing and my refrigerator is not cooling properly.

It is possible that water or the moisture in your freezer has frozen the knob so it feels stuck, so the couple of ways you can fix it is, 1 unplug the freezer, let it defrost and when it warm the knob should loosen up. 2 if you dont want to do the first cuz of food and whatnot what i would do is get a wrench that can fit the knob, put a wash cloth over the knob so dont scratch it all up and grab it with the wrench and try to twist it that way. And 3 take that part of the fridge apart, take off the covers or see if you can open up that area and try to take the knob completely off, and if its like every other knob ive ever seen, once you get the plastic knob off there will be a metal pin that has a flat side that lines up with the plastic knob, take pliers or wrench and try to spin that little pin

What temperature should i have my top half fridge of my hotpoint fridge/ freezer as it is too cold and everything is freezing

A good setting is in the middle of the thermostat range. For example, if you have numbers from 1 to 9, 5 would be a good number. If this setting continues to freeze, look for a bad thermostat or temperature thermistor.

Haier minifridge freezing everything

My mini-fridge did a similar thing, until I realized that managed to put on the wrong temperature knob. It was technically backwards. They may have done this to you. I mean, it is a longshot, but try putting it on the highest setting to see if that helps. If it does not, you're most likely dealing with a faulty knob that's not actually changing the settings on the thermostat.

Temperature of the refigerator recently got colder

I believe your auto damper may be defective and stuck open, Let me send you the service nanual and a page to go toand look it over. The auto damper has a thermostat coil inside and sometimes the probe leaks the freon out of its pigtail leaving the damper stuck open oe closed and some time frost will cause them to stick.

My oven burns everything.

Use a 'oven thermometer' in the oven and determine the 'actual temperature' in the oven. Your knob setting is off (not calibrated) and the oven is hotter than the control knob setting.

My refigerator and freezer are not cooling enough

You could call for service. It is commonly possible that there was a loss of gas, or the thermostat is defective, or the compressor is weak. The refridgeration service man should be able to check for all of this.
