You will have to replace the thermostat. it is faulty and is not switching the compressor off when required temp. is reached.It will be called a double door thermostat when ordering the item. There will be 3 terminals and 2 earthing points. Replace in the exact same order as you remove the wires off the faulty.one.

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.

Freezer not freezing


From what i;m hearing, i interpret the second lowest setting to be the second lowest refrigeration/freezer setting. Which means to me, and pardon my questioning this but, it means that the machine is not being asked to do any more than it is. If you turn the dial up, would that help? It really should say "cold" and "colder" or "coldest" on or around the dial. Please let me know if this helps.. Good luck.

The fridge doesnt seem to be cold enough not sure which way to turn the dial no indication as to which way to turn. No instruction manual to refer to.


Make sure the freezer dial is in the middle (12 O'clock) position if it has one
If it is turned too far towards the right it will cut off all air flow to the refrigerator
compartment, the air flow from the freezer cools the lower compartment. Also make sure
the fan is running, if it has failed then the freezer will freeze up and block all air flow.

The refrigerator compartment has a cold control as well, it is normally turned toward
the right to make it colder or if it has numbers, set to 5 or above.

I recommend setting the refrigerator to 36 to 39 degrees (just above freezing). using a
thermometer (stick type set in a cup of water overnight to get an accurate reading).
It is the preferred method, and will help in this instance since the numbers aren't legible.
Hope this helps.

Your refrigerator has 2 thermostats and an electrically controlled air damper. If a technician removed the air damper and someone has not replaced the thermostat for the refrigerator side I believe you have a poor quality service tech and if your refrigerator was worked on with someone with an ounce of a brain they surely would not leave the electrically controlled damper out and would not overlook the possibility that the thermostat probe is defective. Your refrigerator would be an easy fix if the people that were working on it knew what they are doing. You have a minor problem with your refrigerator and a major problem with the technician.

Whirlpool Model ED5SHAXML12 is freezing food in refrigerator even when dial is at off. Happened from one day to the next.


At the refrig controls , the freezer control , controls how much air goes into the refrigerator section . Open the refrig door , and up at the top left , put your hand over the damper (air vent) . Turn the freezer control from high to low , and feel the difference in the air flow . If you turn your freezer control to a lower setting , less cold air will enter the refrig . Think of it as : the freezer control adjusts the temperature , and the refrig control , tells how long to run the compressor . In actuality , this is how it works . However , with the dial (refrigerator thermostat) in the off position and refrig still running , this indicates a bad thermostat . Pt # 2198202 .

Food in my refrigerator freezes I have a top freezer maytag


There are 2 things to check - Your cold control dial - to rule out a thermostat problem lower it to 1 gradually and slowly until you hear a click and it shuts off - If it does not shut off, and only shuts off if you set it to the OFF position, then you have a thermostat problem and your compressor is continually running, freezing things in your refrigerator. If lowering your dial you hear a click and compressor shuts off, then the solution is to lower your dial, you have it set too cold - There is a thermostat in your refrigerator that should shut things off when it is cool enough it's either not working properly or your dial is set too cold.

The freezer is cold, but has stopped freezing,


This may be as simple as just turning the temperature dial for the freezer to a colder setting. Do that and wait a few hours and your problem may be solved.
