#1 Does your lettuce freeze in the crisper drawer? If so this would be your thermistor located behind the temperature control knob. At the very top inside the top cover is where it is located. It looks like a device with a wire covered in plastic that reads your temperature and allows your refrigerator to cool evenly. If your lettuce is not in the crisper drawer than this can also freeze your vegetables and dry them out. I hope I helped you.

What is the mormal temperature swing of a Refrigerator?


What you call temperature swing, is hysteresis. For a refrigerator it only is allowed a few degrees. 1 or 2 up and down. A swing from 32 to 45 is far to big. Unless the factory can prove they advertise these figures. I would never buy a frig like that.
I would contact the dealer and ask him / her to replace the thermostat and if that is not possible to bring another refrigerator.

Something is really wrong with yours.

How to set up the temp. please


Hello,

Purchase an appliance thermometer that is specifically made for refrigerators and freezers. These special thermometers were made to withstand cold temperatures and provide an accurate reading when exposed to such temperatures.

2Place the appliance thermometer in a glass of water.

3Set the glass of water with the thermometer in the refrigerator on the middle shelf.

4Check the temperature on the appliance thermometer after 24 hours.
The temperature should register between 37 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit (2 and 4 degrees Celsius) in order to store food safely.
Only barely above freezing -- say 34 degrees Fahrenheit (1 degree Celsius) is even better for food storage at the cost of slightly higher electricity consumption. But check that food is not slowly freezing in any part of the refrigerator, which could make it less palatable.

5Look for the temperature control dial inside the refrigerator if you have to adjust the temperature, and make it warmer or cooler.
If you can't easily see the control dial, check the owner's manual for a diagram that shows the location.
When looking at the refrigerator temperature dial, you may see numbers rather than degrees. The majority of refrigerators use a set of numbers, with the lower numbers representing cooler temperatures and the higher numbers representing warmer temperatures.

6Move the temperature dial in the necessary direction to adjust the temperature up or down. Be sure to move the dial only one number in either direction because it probably will not take much to change the temperature in the refrigerator.

7Adjust the temperature balance control if your refrigerator has such a dial or sliding switch. This allows you to direct more or less cold air to the refrigerator section from the freezer section.

8Wait at least 24 hours, and then check the refrigerator temperature again.


9Observe the amount of frost in the freezer section of the refrigerator if you are unable to properly set the temperature.

10Defrost the freezer if the amount of frost is more than .25 inches (.64 cm) thick.

11Repeat the steps as necessary until the temperature is within the safe range.

12Use a permanent marker to draw a line on the dial after you locate the best setting on the refrigerator temperature dial. This will give you a reference point in case your dial moves and needs to be adjusted in the future.

Hope this will help out...

The freeze protection just quit qorking when it dropped to freezing i turned the dial to 45 and it still will not come on has been working non stop for about 4 days. i am in the dfw area


You can replaced the freeze control without buying entire timer:

Google: "Intermatic thermostat freeze control" to see cross selection of choices.
For example Smarthome sells PF1103 for $80: works for 120 or 240
http://www.smarthome.com/42699/Intermatic-PF1103M-120-240V-Freeze-Protection-Control-Timer-Mechanism/p.aspx

To prevent freezing right now, the pump should run full time, so pull trippers off the timer dial, and mover override lever to ON position. This will keep the pump running.
When the temperature rises, put trippers back on dial, and then order new part.

Add a comment for more free help.
Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Freezing my lettuce in crisper , so how do i change the temperature so my vegetables don't freeze. i do not have a producy manual.


Magtag has dropped the ball on this one... The temp at the top and the bottom of the units are varied. Try turning your temp gauge down just a fraction until the lettuce doesn't freeze. I also suggest getting a temp gauge (cheap) and placing on your top shelf to monitor. Temp should be around 40 degrees.

Fridge too cold


First, clean it the unit out and fully defrost.  Clean the condenser coils.  Don't pack in so much food, don't open the door too frequently.  Never block any air channels. Never leave uncapped liquids in the fridge or freezer.  Set the fridge at about 40 degrees...use an outdoor thermometer.  Freezer at about 0-5F.

Ie tube freeze


You may need to balance the distribution of cold air between the freezer and refrigerator section.
The temperature setting influences both and there is normally a control that lets you divide the cooling between the two compartments.
If you don't have one, get an inexpensive (<$5 US) refrigerator thermometer, normally a simple dial-type, and monitor your refrigerator temperature (maybe somewhere in the middle) overnight when not often opened, set the main control to get the temperature between 40-45 degrees F.
Then check the freezer temp.; it should be <10 degrees F (0 is better), then swap back to the fridge to correct the main setting.
Go back and forth until you have both compartments close to the mentioned ranges.

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator too cold


On a fridge freezer only the fridge temperature is monitored. In a cold location the fridge might not even need cooling and the freezer would get too warm but the thing won't care.

If the fridge sensor sees it as too warm then it will keep the motor running and the first thing to get really cold is the freezer.

Remember the freezing part is not temperature controlled ion a fridgefreezer.
