Top of fridge freezing with temperature on lowest setting


You need a new thermostat but there are some things you can check in the link. 1 is the warmest setting.

Most refrigerator temperature settings are controlled with a dial or slider. They are sometimes labeled 1 through 5 or 1 through 9. If you are not sure what to set it to, then set it somewhere in the middle. If the dial is numbered 1 to 5 set it on 3, if the dial is numbered 1 to 9, then set at 4. USUALLY the higher the number on the temp control dial, the colder the temperature your refrigerator will get. If your drinks and food are not as cold as you like, set the temperature dial up one number higher. If it is at 3 and you want your food colder, set it to 4 and test 12-24 hours later to see if your food is at the temperature you want.

Freezer not freezing


From what i;m hearing, i interpret the second lowest setting to be the second lowest refrigeration/freezer setting. Which means to me, and pardon my questioning this but, it means that the machine is not being asked to do any more than it is. If you turn the dial up, would that help? It really should say "cold" and "colder" or "coldest" on or around the dial. Please let me know if this helps.. Good luck.

The fridge doesnt seem to be cold enough not sure which way to turn the dial no indication as to which way to turn. No instruction manual to refer to.


Make sure the freezer dial is in the middle (12 O'clock) position if it has one
If it is turned too far towards the right it will cut off all air flow to the refrigerator
compartment, the air flow from the freezer cools the lower compartment. Also make sure
the fan is running, if it has failed then the freezer will freeze up and block all air flow.

The refrigerator compartment has a cold control as well, it is normally turned toward
the right to make it colder or if it has numbers, set to 5 or above.

I recommend setting the refrigerator to 36 to 39 degrees (just above freezing). using a
thermometer (stick type set in a cup of water overnight to get an accurate reading).
It is the preferred method, and will help in this instance since the numbers aren't legible.
Hope this helps.

Please check the thermostat settings. It should not be on the maximum. If it is so bring it down to the medium i.e move the knob of the thermostat to the left. If it is numbered then bring it to 4 or 5 and then check. Somebody when cleaning has moved the settings to Max cool.

My Cold Teck prep table 3 door ether freezes or cooks the product You set it on 1 and it goes to 65 yiu set it on 4-5 it freezes the products


This sounds like the cold control is sticking and acting erratically. It should be set to around 2 or 3 on the dial. If it doesn't hold a steady temperature (between 35 and 40°) there, replace the control.

Food is frezzing up in refrigerator


Normally if the dial control is in the refrigerator section and is marked A,B,C,D then A will be the warmest setting. If the dial is marked 1,2,3,4 then 1 is the warmest setting. Hope I was of help to you!!

Food in my refrigerator freezes I have a top freezer maytag


There are 2 things to check - Your cold control dial - to rule out a thermostat problem lower it to 1 gradually and slowly until you hear a click and it shuts off - If it does not shut off, and only shuts off if you set it to the OFF position, then you have a thermostat problem and your compressor is continually running, freezing things in your refrigerator. If lowering your dial you hear a click and compressor shuts off, then the solution is to lower your dial, you have it set too cold - There is a thermostat in your refrigerator that should shut things off when it is cool enough it's either not working properly or your dial is set too cold.

I don't know how to set the temperature setting on my Hotpoint RLAV21 fridge. The dial goes from 0 to 4. For fridges I have had in the past the higher the number the colder the fridge but I've got my...


You should have 2 dials one is the thermostat when you set it all the way one direction it will shut you refrigerator off. Turn it back to about the middle if there are no numbers. The other dial is the air damper between the freezer and the refrigerator. The fan circulates the air through refrigerator by this damper. If you open this open to much your food in the refrigeration section will freeze. Close it back to about 2 that will give you a colder freezer and should be about right for the refrigeration section.

Side by side..fridge is freezing up while freezer works fine


Your baffle that controls the freezer temperature is possibly broken.  If you take the cover off the dials labeled "refrigerator/freezer" the baffle is a plastic arm that controls the amount of air circulation between the freezer and the refigerator. If the arm is broken is will stay closed completely blocking the air hole or vent.  I just wedged a small piece of wood or shim in mine and it hasn't frozen up since.

Good Luck.  I know how frustrating it can be to repeatedly defrost the ice build-up.
