Refrigerator runs too much

When I moved into this house 3 years ago, the refrigerator rarely ran and the dial was set at 3. All was good.  Recently, I noticed it running more often and food freezing. I turned the dial down to 1 and it still runs all the time. I have home appliance insurance and the repairman said that was normal...I think they never want to replace an appliance and he gave me a story.

I have a True tbb-2g that recently froze some beer in bottles and also a lot of moisture on bottles still in cooler that I have not enjoyed yet ! it is no froze up and compressor was replaced 3 years

Is the condenser clean and clear? Is the fan running? Sometimes when the fan fails the compressor runs and runs and runs. First thing you need to do is go to the supermarket and pick up a red stick thermometer and find out what kind of temperature you have. Try setting the temperature warmer. Is the coil iced up at one end? If it is there is a good chance the system has a leak and needs a look at from a tech with some tools. Hope this helps good luck.

My sub-zero refrigerator setting was on 7 when i moved into my home 4 years ago and I noticed recently it was not cooling enough so first i cleaned the filter area but it still seamed not to be as cool as...

Good day,
The important thing is to make sure the condenser coil is cleaned properly.
It is critical to the operation of the machine.
The coil is too thick to be vacuumed or brushed out. It is necessary, to blow the dirt out completely.
Service techs use compressed air with a hose, but a good substitute is a good push/pull shop vac with a crevice tool attachment. It's messy and dirty, but necessary.
After that the setting on the control should be set where you like it.
The control may be going out of calibration due to age, and as long as it can be set to any number that works, then that is O.K.
Although seemingly high, 7 seems to be the settings most Sub Zero owners like.

Thank you for using FixYa

If you didn't give it enough time for the oil to settle back in the compressor that could be the problem. I would try leaving it off for a day to see if it will settle down and run better.

Problems with Maytag 21 cu.ft. Top Mount Refrigerator, MTF2172HR

not nessecarily an electrical fire, but sounds as if the compressor is struggling to start, it is indeed "tripping off" on overload. so yo may start ot see a decline in refrigeration. check your manual for "sealed system" coverage. adn check that against our date of purchase, you should have 5 yr manufactuere warr, but that all changed Jan '06 coverage was reduced to one year! yo ucan try replacing teh overlaod relay, atached ot the side of the compressor if youd like

Fridge and freezer not cold enough since we moved

remove the panel at the reaar of the freezer. you should have a full frost pattern on your evaporator (frosted not snow packed) and the fan should be running. if you do not have a full frost pattern then you have a sealed system leak. covered under the first five years of your warranty
