My Kelvinator refrigerator temperature varies a lot; thermostat problem?

Posted by on

  • Mario L Oct 07, 2010

    It doen't seem to loose air.

    Another clue would be that the refrigerator doesn't run when thermostat button is set near the warmest position and only start when I turn it and reach near the coldest position.

    Temperature can vary from 32 to 42 degres.

Check to see that the door closes tight and it is not losing cold air. If it seems to be ok I would check the thermostat

Adjusting the thermostat clockwise will normally lower the freezing temperature on unit.. If it does not, either the thermostat is defective or perhaps the unit is low on refrigerant.

Replacement thermostats depends on whether the fridge is a double door or single door model. You can buy this part from your appliance parts store/supplier.

Freezer won't get below 30 degrees at the highest setting, food won't freeze.


Possible that the gas pressure is down to low gas or leak on the system. Also it can be due to faulty thermostat, faulty compressor if the compressor is working all the time and reaching the set temperature. Also if the compressor is not cutting off this must be a suspect.

It sounds like the thermostat is not sensing when the fridge/freezer reaches it's set temperature.This will result in the compressor running non-stop and this causes ice build-up inside the fridge.See on what number (0-7) the thermostat is set on.If it is set on 7,turn it down to 3 and see if it makes a difference.If there is no difference it means that the thermostat is not sensing & switching the compressor off.You will then have to replace the thermostat.
