It is a thermostat control problem.From the temperature control knob inside it is the contactor that limits or adjust the distance from the contacts to energize the the motor to run.Then comes the sensor tubing and at the tip is where the sensor is, mis location of this would not activate the temperature control.So behind the temperature control locate the tubing coming out from it and see where it goes.See if is properly curled to be able to sense rise in temperature. It is usually found next to the control.But if this is okey the control needs to be replaced.

Refrigerator and freezer is freezing everything


Its either a bad defrost timer not kicking on, bad main control board or the temp switch. Sorry not much help but the only way to really tell is check with a ohlm meteor and eliminate each part.

My viking under counter refrigerator freezes all liquid


Is it a digital temp. display? Does this show a low temp? It should show +/-34 degrees. Listen if the compressor runs continuously. It should run for a while and then switch off. When you change the temp setting, as you turn it down, the compressor should stop. If it runs continuously then the likely cause is a stuck/faulty thermostat.Before replacing this, switch off and leave open until unit is at room temp. Then switch on again and monitor. If the thermostat if faulty and the compressor runs continuously you can damage it by overheating. The compressor will run for a good few hours after restart, until set temp. is reached and then switch off automatically. Good luck!

Sanyo Mini Fridge Freezes Everything


Hello,
For me I think you have a problem in Thermostat switch contact. Or the rotary switch was not in good contact point, better check it and if still the same, proceed to check your thermocouple if functioning.

GE Profile pss26mgpa. Food keeps freezing no matter the temp setting


Set the temp to the lowest setting and see if the damper is closed and not letting air into the food section. If it is, then you will need to replace the damper. Here is that part to order.

Everything freezes in the refrigerator bottom drawers - no matter what we set the temp in the freezer or refrigerator, everythign freezes.


Make sure the vents from the freezer to the fridge are not blocked by ice etc. One is at the bottom and one at the top. The on at the top is adjusted open or closed when you adjust the fridge temp. Make sure it's working. Also make sure the fan in the freezer is circulating the air from the freezer through the vent at the top.

Sounds like a stuck thermostat, you can try to tap it and this may "unstick" it, or you would need to replace it.

Everything in the refrigerator is freezing


The 37 degree reading you're seeing is the temp. setting, not the present actual temp. When it jumps back to 22-25 its telling you what the actual temp is inside the refrig....simply wait about 24 hours. It should then read about 37...that is, the temp you set it at 24 hours previously.
