Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Even though I have the temp set on #2 on the dial - it is so cold in my fridge that my milk is freezing. I'm afraid to use this thing anymore (I've had it for about 5 years). Any idea what the problem might be? The model is: MCBR170S Thanks. Kristi Isaacs

    I have a True T-49F Side by Side Commercial Refrigerator that stays 15-20 degrees on it's warmest setting. Should I replace the temp control i.e. the part where the dial is that is connected to the small copper tubing?

Why are vegetables freezing in crisper?


There is a control on refrigerator that controls the amount of cold air that is directed from freezer to refrigerator section. Locate that control and lower the amount of cold air going into refrig.

first run the diagnostics on the unit from the tech sheet inside the unit,then if thermistors are bad replace these there are 2 one on the left and one on the right wall in both fridge and freezer,if good per diagnostics then replace the electronic damper door located between the fridge and freezer compartments in the upper left hand corner of the fridge behind the plastic grille as these doors break and jamb open or shut and the temps can no longer be regulated during the diagnostics tests you can hear this door operate if its operating correctly,lastly,if these fail to solve your problem,replace the main control board in the back behind a panel

Westinghouse RJ275M 194l fridge with top 81l freezer doesn't keep the fridge cold anymore. Freezer is fine. is it the thermostat?


If the upper compartment, the freezer part is open on the ends and the rest of the refrigerator is cold enough, that can't be fixed. If the the box is closed on the ends seperate, check the flow control of air if it has one, check the thermostat and set it till things nearly freeze in the lower non frozen section. If all this doesn't work and you can't keep the ice cream turning to milk, gotta get a new refrigerator.

Fridge of my Hotpoint FFA90 fridge-freezer freezes


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

MY 9 YR OLD FRIDGE IS FREEZING MILK, JUICE AND ALL LIQUIDS IN THE MAIN COMPARTMENT BUT NOT NECESSARILY ON THE DOORS


you gotta send model number,there are different things that can cause this,if the freezer is on top,the cold air from the freezer gets blown into the fridge in the center of the top shelf so if any food is near this it will freeze if the air isn't monitored, check the settings first,it could be set to high, there's a cold control or thermostat that monitors how much air comes into the fridge and when it reaches a certain temp it shuts off but it sounds like your having a problem with it,also on some fridges they have a damper that can mess up,there's a door on it that doesn't close and the cold air just keeps coming into the fridge and things start freezing up

Milk and other items keep freezing in my side by side fridigaire


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Freeing food in refrigerator, even vegetables in vegetable tray


You have 2 dials in the refrigerator. One is the thermostat setting the cold temp in the freezer, the other is a damper that allows cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator. Set the thermostat to the middle then try closing down the damper, most say colder or warmer refrigerator. If the damper is closed and your refrigerator is still freezing, then I would guess that the thermostat is bad. A thermostat runs about 40 to 60 dollars wholesale. Retale should be about double.
