Some units have the thermostat located on the evaporator cover (cooling coil). There will be a dimple or some other mark at the set point. These temperature controls cause a cycle defrost. Cooling coil temperature must warm up to above freezing before the next cooling cycle starts.

I have Mod. # RT21LMXKQ. There is only one thermostat control. How do I regulate the temperature in the refridgerator and freezer?


Walter,
Usually the thermostat control knob is in the refrigerator compartment, and the knob in the freezer controls how much cold air is moved past the damper down into the refrigerator area. All of you cooling is generated in the freezer section and the fan forces is downward. Your thermostat usually has a bulb that senses the temperature that turns the compressor on and off. The factory settings are in the middle of the dial on both areas. Hope this helps!

Temperature control in fridge is turned all the way down but still too cold-25*, freezer=10*. What can i do? Amana SZD27ME side by side


Turning down the dial is not recommended as it does not turn the temperature down. Please return it the factory setting. If your temperature is too cold in the fridge, it may be the timer or thermostat. If it its in the freezer, it's the thermostat. If it both, you have a bigger problem, such as the compressor may be malfunctioning.

How do test the thermostat on


Hi Walter, The fact that the unit is freezing when turned fully down suggests to me that you need a new thermostat as this is the switch that controls the temperature.

Good day!!!!

When working properly, the thermostat turns the compressor on and off. Once the thermostat turns the compressor on, it will run until the temperature inside the refrigerator is lower than the setting of the thermostat. Make sure that the refrigerator has enough air clearance on all sides. Refrigerators with a condenser coil grid on the back of them need room to radiate the heat away from the coils.
Verify that the door light switch is working properly. Push the switch with your finger to verify the light is turning off. If the light stays on, it will actually warn the interior of the refrigerator. Fix or replace the switch if it is faulty.
Modern refrigerators that have a lot of storage and large freezer compartments run for longer periods of time. They also start and stop very frequently to maintain an even temperature. This is especially true if you have just put a lot of warm food in the refrigerator, or if it is very hot and humid. It can take several hours to get back to the cool temperature you have it set for after putting a large amount of food in it.
If the compressor is not shutting off when the temperature inside the refrigerator is cold enough, you may have a bad thermostat. You may also have the temperature set too high in the refrigerator. Try adjusting the thermostat to a lower temperature. If this turns the compressor off, you had it set too high. With the help of a refrigerator thermometer, you can find a more ideal setting that will keep your food cold, but not so cold that the compressor is always running. If raising the temperature setting doesn't help, it may be a problem with the thermostat and you will need to replace it.
If your thermostat is working properly, there's a chance that you have low levels of refrigerant in the sealed system. If this is where the symptoms lead you, you need to contact a professional appliance repair person. Only an EPA certified technician can legally work on a sealed system. If you attempt to do work on this system, you will void the warranty.
If this is a new refrigerator, it will run for a long time, almost constantly, before it gets cooled enough to stabilize the interior temperature. Allow up to 24 hours for it to stabilize. The refrigerator should be at least one half to two thirds full. This will help to maintain a stable temperature inside the unit. The cold items inside will help to keep an even temperature inside after the door has been opened and closed. Some people prefer to keep a lot of stuff in the refrigerator as ballast, even jugs of water. This helps to maintain temperatures inside so that when the door gets opened and closed often, it doesn't need to run as much to maintain the temperature inside.

I hope this information will be helpful...Thanks for using fixya...

I have a Kenmore 17 cu. ft. refrigerator. Model 67741 series.I keep it in the garage mainly for liquids Most everything in the refrigerator freezes. I have turned the dials down to no avail. What do you...


If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly. This is a common problem that often doesn't have a clear, permanent solution. The first thing to check is the overall internal refrigerator temperature. The proper temperature should be between 35 and 42 degrees. Here are some things to try: If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf. If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper.

How to remove and replace Thermester


Hello,

If you discover that your refrigerator is not getting cool enough or not cooling down at all, then it is perfectly possible you may need to change your refrigerator thermostat. If you wish to test the thermostat to make sure whether it is working or not, then you should change the refrigerator temperature to something a bit cooler than normal. If the thermostat is working okay then it will take a few hours to maintain a steady temperature. However, if it doesn't then it will need replacing.


Step 1 - Preparation for Replacing Thermostat
The first thing you should do before undertaking this work is to turn off the appliance from the mains. This is something that should be done with all appliances of an electrical nature for safety reasons. If you find that the plug is hidden away behind cupboards or panels then you should turn off all the power to the entire kitchen.


Step 2 - Locate the Thermostat
Next you need to find the thermostat and where it is positioned inside the refrigerator. For the majority of refrigerators where they have a freezer on the top level, the thermostat will be right at the back of the fridge or on the roof of the fridge on underneath the freezer panel. If you have a refrigerator that is next to the freezer then the thermostat should be found in the freezer at the back.

Step 3 - Remove Shelving
Ensure that you take out all frozen food and shelves that are in your way that many prevent you from working on the job with plenty of space to move about in. In order to take out some of the shelves on the inside you may have to make a few screws loose and take out clips holding it in place.

Step 4 - Remove Wires
There will be some wires that are attached to the thermostat and these need to be pulled away gently using the pliers. You should make sure that you are extremely careful doing this as if you pull too hard or grip the wires in the middle then they could break under the pressure.

Step 5 - Take the Broken Thermostat Out
You are now in a position to take the old faulty thermostat out of the refrigerator after taking out the remaining screws and clips. If the thermostat is around an evaporator tube then you should take care then removing as this may cause damage.

Step 6 - Install the New Thermostat
Once you have gone through all the steps, then you should put the new replacement thermostat in to the refrigerator in the same place as the old one. Ensure that you screw it into place and reconnect all the wires. Ensure that when you have done this and put the panel back on to the thermostat that it is secure. Next put back any shelving you took out before replacing the thermostat.

Step 7 - Test the Refrigerator
Finally, turn the power to the refrigerator back on and then wait for the refrigerator to cool down again to a lower temperature. If the new thermostat is working correctly then it will kick in and maintain a steady temperature within your refrigerator.

I hope this will help in solving the problem....

Runs constantly seems like it never shuts down our power bill is soaring


Hello there:
The refrigerator never cycles off The thermostat cycles the refrigerator on and off. The refrigerator normally runs as long as the temperature inside the refrigerator is higher than the set temperature. If the temperature inside the refrigerator is cold enough and the thermostat still does not cycle off, the thermostat may be defective. If so, you need to replace it, because it cannot be repaired. If the thermostat is not defective, you may have a problem with the sealed (refrigerant) system, in which case you should contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

My Haier compact refrigerator won't turn on


A new thermostat is required. When you turned it down you probably broke the contact and will not re-connect. Be careful installing the new one the fine tube contains gas which is temperature sensitive. do kink or break it.

Freezer Freezes Refrigerator Barely gets cold


Hello there:
Here is a few things to check to make sure the referigerator is working properly.
The first thing to check is the overall internal refrigerator temperature (see the Appliance Accessories section for a refrigerator/freezer thermometer). The proper temperature should be between 35 and 42 degrees. Here are some things to try: If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly. If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.

Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.
If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan. The refrigerator never cycles off The thermostat cycles the refrigerator on and off. The refrigerator normally runs as long as the temperature inside the refrigerator is higher than the set temperature. If the temperature inside the refrigerator is cold enough and the thermostat still does not cycle off, the thermostat may be defective. If so, you need to replace it, because it cannot be repaired.

Refridgerator is freezing everything


This is likely a thermostat failure. The thermostat is no longer shutting down the compressor or sensing the temperature wrong. The thermostat is a module inside most modern refrigerators and is a fairly easy fix except for the cramped quarters. You can order the thermostat from an appliance repair store. I suggest getting the service manual while you are at it if you have no experience taking a fridge apart.
Do not damage or bend the sensing tube sharply at any time. Be gentle!
