Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

My brand new refrigerator is locked when it is in the unlocked position. I leave it unlocked at all times, but unpredictably when I try to open it, I am locked out. I then lock it (feel the snap of the button)[it was in the unlock position] and unlock it (feel the snap of the button)and wait a few second. That does not always work and the procedure is time consuming. Locked should be locked and unlocked should be unlocked on a brand new appliance.

Sorry, you have a defective switch, or logic board. Luckily, the fridge should be under warranty.

How to adjust temperature

Hi, Please use your thermostat to adjust your temperature setting. Most refrigerator thermostat is come with actual temperature setting at thermostat dial but it just use range : cold-medium-off ( or 5...5..3....1..0). So for instance to get your refrigerator colder just set between medium - cold. If your thermostat defective , your refrigerator will work unpredictably. In this case you need to fix or replace the thermostat.

Refrigerator turns off and on (intermittently) unpredictably

There's probably something sticky inside the button between the plunger and the housing or the spring inside is weak. Try to clean it out. If that doesn't work then replace it.
