Hello,

When the refrigerator side is getting too cold this is because the control of the compressor has gone bad in some way...

There a few different things that could cause the unit to lose control over the temperature of the fridge side.

If your refrigerator has a damper door that opens and closes to allow cold air to move to the fridge side the damper linkage or the damper motor may have broken or gone bad.

The coils in your fridge may have frozen over and now the air does not move at all so then the ice builds up and can freeze parts of the fridge side.

The thermostat has gone bad and so now the compressor runs continually. This will not be noticed readily on the freezer side but will show up quickly on the fridge side.

Many newer model refrigerators use an electronic sensor or thermistor to read the temperature and supply the info for the circuit board and often a digital readout.

So, here is how I would go about troubleshooting this problem.

Check the coils for ice, defrost the coils with a heat gun or hairdryer, then check for the reason why they iced over. Defrost control or defrost timer bad? Evaporator fan bad?

Check the damper door to see if it is stuck in the open position. If it is then check the motor and the linkage.

Check to see if the refrigeration unit will shut down if the thermostat or digital setting is turned up to a higher temperature. If it continues to run then find the cause and fix it. It may be a bad thermostat, sensor, or control board.

Sometimes with a change is weather to a cooler climate this will be enough to also affect the inside temperatures. Make sure that a bit of adjustment in the thermostat or setting of the temperature will not solve your problem very simply.

I hope the above helps.

Good luck.

Freezer stops freezing, works for a while, then stops again. What might the problem be? It is a side-by-side. Sometimes the refriderator side also varies in temperature. Gregg Wakefield

My Viking microwave is sparking from the right side when turned on. I removed and cleaned the guide cover as I read about on your site and it still sparks. Is there anything I can do to fix this? All of...


Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck somewhere in the cavity of the oven or stuck on or in the waveguide behind the waveguide cover.

The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild,
non-ammonia cleaner.


Otherwise, there may be grease or food particles deeper in the waveguide or even on the magnetron itself.


If the metal of the oven wall is burned or chipped, the area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

If the cavity metal of the oven is cracked or split, you can use a small amount of steel-based epoxy such as JB-WELD to patch the crack or hole.

Once that dries thoroughly, you can sand it very smooth, then apply paint.

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.

It provides critical protection for the magnetron.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
