My refrigerator has a temperature of 54 degrees already cleaned the compressor. What do I do next?

Did you clean the compressor, the round kettle-like thing, or the condenser, the thing that looks like a radiator?

If you did, then you need a service engineer to check if it needs gas.

Our refrigerator is freezing items in the refrigerator with the temperature set at 40 degrees. Do you know why?

You need to test the thermistors in the unit. It should read around 10,000 ohms at room temperature and around 29,500 ohms at 36 degrees. If it is not reading properly, you will need to replace the thermistor kit. Here is the kit to order.
The thermistor is located in the light assembly.

Unit is about 10 years old, bought new from Lowes. When I open the doors the bar or middle frame is warm to hot. Now the freezer and refrigerator is not cold. Ice started to melt down so I removed the ice...

I suspect the warm to hot is from a heater that keeps moisture from from condensing on that bar. you don't notice it when the unit is working properly. Make sure your condenser fan is running and that condenser is clean. You may have a compressor that is failing

Hi, your thermostat is reading celius instead of F.Degrees. There should be a switch under the cover or in the program for you to change back.

If the unit is a thermoelectric unit it can be the cooling system.
If the unit is a compressor unit it will be the thermostat.
