It sounds like the temperature sensor itself is faulty.
Alternatively the wires or connectors may be loose, broken or corroded.

If you list the make and model, I can look up a replacement for you, or visit your local retailer for supply information.
Most are replacable as spare parts.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. If it did, please spare a moment to rate as Fixya!

Thanks.

Fridge showing incorrect temperature


The temperature sensor might need to be replaced, however, if the compressor is never shutting off, then the contents of the refrigerator will freeze and the compressor will "freeze up" too.

Buy a refrigerator/freezer thermometer to determine the actual temperature.

I came home from work and my alarm was on. The temperature on both the refrigerator side and freezer side was going up. The food in the freezer is thawing and the refrigerator is barely cool. I thought...


Let it unplug for an hour and set temp to your preferred setting and then plug in again. This will resume to normal operation.
Be sure that electricity in your home is not fluctuating or surging as it will cause false alarm or your fridge. It can intermittently operate your fridge.
Thanks for asking

I have a RS643V are the contents in the fridge


The 643V has an issue that it can freeze the water in the line during winter.
You must switch the fridge off until the water starts to run again. Then set the temperature of the fridge up as high as possible in winter. Draw 1 litre of water at least twice a day during winter.

This fixed my problem.

You can set the tempertaure back down in the fridge during summer without a problem.

Viking Wine Cellar Temperature Near-Freezing


Viking wine coolers are made by Marvel.They all had issues with freezing the contents. If you replace the electronic cold control system it will be fine.If you don't, it will freeze the wine popping the corks and leaking in the unit.If you get the parts from Marvell they are much cheaper.

GE Profile refrigerator temperature problem


refrigerators have 2 coils. the evaporator coil and the condensing coil. one is on the bottom of the fridg and one is on the back or inside behind a false panel. these coils must be kept clean or if the condensing coil cannot reject the heat absorbed by the evaporator, the box temp will stay high and if the evap coil cant absorb heat the box temp stays low running the risk of freezing

My Samsun RS2534ww side by side refridgerator will not maintain temperature on the fridge side. It consistantly warms up to between 50 and 60 degrees despite resetting the thermostat.


First thing to try is Powering off the FF at the mains supply and leaving it standing for 30 minutes. Make sure that you do not open any of the doors or touch any of the controls during this time. Then reconnect the power and wait for 30 to 60 minutes to see if the fault remains or is cured. Try defrosting the FF as despite common belief these units are not totally frost free.

In side by sides if the freezer side is working OK and the fridge side is not working correctly it means that air ducting has iced up or the air vent from the freezing unit to the fridge compartment has stuck in the closed or partially closed position which causes the fridge to not be any where near as cool as it should be. If it is too cold then the vent is stuck in the open position and the fridge temperature will continue to fall and become the same as the freezer, thereby freezing the contents of the fridge compartment. It can also get stuck in another position so that if the temperature is adjusted on the front panel then nothing happens to the temperature in the fridge compartment. The vent, which is usually at the top of the fridge compartment on the side where it joins the freezer compartment, is controlled by a small sync motor and either the motor has become faulty, the control module is faulty or the vent is iced up. It can be come iced up by putting too many hot items in the fridge so the steam condenses and freezes the vent in position and then the motor cannot open or close it causing it and / or the control module to become faulty. Other times it is just old age that causes the motor and / or the control module to fail. If the sync motor and vent are working OK then there may be a fault with the fridge temperature sensor or main on board controller that will mean that the sensor or the controller will need replacing.
