Is it please possible to provide the model no. of your refrigerator?

Not sure why you replaced 2 light bulbs. Do the bulbs blow up when you put these in?
Also please clarify what you mean by "including the knob to adjust freezer and refrigerator temperature"? Are the fridge and the freezer working ok?

The bulbs may be fine but the wiring seems to have the problem if the cooling is fine. The wiring for the lights may have got disconnected for whatever reason. The rear would have to be removed and so would the inner lining be to reach and repair it.

Why is the refrigerator side is freezing food


First some fridge 101, the refrigerator/freezer models cool by directly refrigerating the freezer section and the refrigerator section is cooled when "some" of the cold air from the freezer is directed over to the refrigerator side (typically by a fan) to keep food fresh and not frozen a temperature controlling damper opens and closes to regulate the temperature of the fridge by introducing more or below freezing air into the cabinet. In older models where the freezer was on top the air simply "gravity" drained into the refrigerator cabinet, if the food was too cold you turned the fridge knob up and less air sank from the freezer to the fridge, simple but effective.

When you adjust the temperature level it controls the freezer temperature and this turns the compressor on and off to keep the food frozen. There is typically a knob or lever and some even have electric dampers that open and close to direct more or less air from the freezer and direct it to the refrigerator cabinet based on your temperature requirements.


Now that you know how it works there are a couple things to check. If the condenser coil is plugged with dust the internal system pressure will rise and in some cases make the fridge an over achiever and can chill too much so check/clean the condenser coil. Check the freezer temperature control and turn in up, also make sure the fridge temperature control setting is not set too cold.

Finally as the temperature changes around the refrigerator it will have an effect on the inside of the fridge too so expect to turn it up and down as the environment changes, down in the summer and up in the winter.

Hope the novel helps to resolve your issues.

How do I replace my freezer light


An owners manual I found online says:
Freezer
  1. Pinch rear tabs on light cover and pull straight down.
  2. Remove light bulb.
  3. Replace bulb with appliance bulb no greater than 40 watts.
  4. Insert front tabs of light cover into freezer liner and snap rear portion over light assembly until rear tabs engage.
---
The manual illustrates the bulb is behind a plastic grille right by the temperature control knob.

True T-49 refrigerator/freezer temperature calibration


Contact the manufacture, it is most likely going to be covered under warranty. If the knob is not removable, (check for a set screw on the side of the knob it will take a small allen wrench) Then the thermostat (temp controller) will need to be replaced, if it isn't a style that you can calibrate.

Temperature


Hello R, thank you for your question! Generally speaking it is recommended that the temperature knob is set in the middle for both the refrigerator and freezer compartment for top mount refrigerators. The temperature can be adjusted by moving the knob in small increments, allowing the temperature to stabilize. If you desire a colder temperature, then turn the knob towards COLDER, or for warmer temperature, turn the knob towards COLD. Turning the refrigerator control will change temperatures in both compartments. For example, if the refrigerator control is turned to a colder setting, the freezer control may have to be adjusted to a warmer setting. Turning the freezer control will only change the freezer temperature. Hope this proves to be helpful!

When The Temperature Setting Is On 1 The Food In The Freezer Dosent Stay Completely Frozen But When i move it up to setting 2 it freezes things in the fridge...and theres water leaking out the back


Do you just adjust the fresh food side or do you adjust the freezer setting too? Post the model # . does the unit have knobs or buttons for setting temp? Does food freeze in one particular part of the fresh food side or evenly throughout?

GE GSS25LGMFWW side by side. Freezer will run till iced up then defrost everything in the freezer compartment. Why is it doing this?


hi, have you try adjusting the temperature:

To change the temperature, press and release the
WARMER or COLDER pad. The SET light will come
on and the display will show the set temperature.
To change the temperature, tap either the
WARMER or COLDER pad until the desired
temperature is displayed. The
freezer temperatures can be adjusted between
–6°F and +6°F.

Freezer temperature won't get cold enough.


This might sound stupid, but I had a similar problem. A few years ago when I was renting I noticed that suddenly my freezer stopped working well. I eventually had to call my landlord to check it out. It turned out that there was a knob to adjust the freezer temp and I had turned it to the warmest setting somehow. If it isn't that, I would return the freezer.

Hope that works for you
