Top of fridge freezing with temperature on lowest setting


You need a new thermostat but there are some things you can check in the link. 1 is the warmest setting.

Most refrigerator temperature settings are controlled with a dial or slider. They are sometimes labeled 1 through 5 or 1 through 9. If you are not sure what to set it to, then set it somewhere in the middle. If the dial is numbered 1 to 5 set it on 3, if the dial is numbered 1 to 9, then set at 4. USUALLY the higher the number on the temp control dial, the colder the temperature your refrigerator will get. If your drinks and food are not as cold as you like, set the temperature dial up one number higher. If it is at 3 and you want your food colder, set it to 4 and test 12-24 hours later to see if your food is at the temperature you want.

I have a Danby fridge with a numbered temperature dial. Does the higher the number mean a colder temperature? All my stuff keeps freezing


Keep your freezer to the mid point, and your ref to mid.
Wait 24hrs for results. If your refrigerator is still freezing, you may need a new thermostat. Get the model number, and go to searspartsdirect.com and look up the thermostat. Sometimes it's also referred as cold control.

Kitchen Aid Unit - maybe 4-5 years old but past warranty. Freezer not freezing. Not that cold in fridge. I played with the dials 1. Are higher or lower numbers on the knob coldest? 2. What else should I...


Set dial to higher number in the fresh food compartment (large door) set the freezer
knob on the vent stack in the center or to the left (if it is set to colder, this prevents cold
air from getting into the lower fresh food compartment). Colder means the freezer
gets colder.
Also if you have a failed defrost termination thermostat it will cause this
symptom on many models. (a lot of folks will disagree but I have only seen a couple
of defrost timers fail in 10 years). The water makes its way into the defrost termination
thermostat and corrodes the contacts inside. It is behind the freezer panel and has two
wires going to it. It is clipped onto a tube. You will need the model and serial from inside
the fresh food door (on the side panel) to get a new one, usually less than 20 dollars.
Remember to set the fresh food compartment temp from 34 to 39 degrees with a
thermometer in a cup of water for 24 hours. Don't forget to unplug unit if service is
required on the thermostat. Hope this helps.
