Question about Refrigerators
Hi, sounds as though you are having a thermostat control problem. Try turning the stat slowly in each direction as far as you can to determine which direction is coldest or warmer, or it may say. You want to see if it will shut the compressor off. If it were low on freon it would also run all the time trying to keep up on a call for cooling, but you would not have everything freezing. Its a stat problem if it will not shut off when you turn the dial all the way in either direction, and will need to be replaced. If this is something you want to take on, you will need to get the model, serial, and name and size off unit and get a new control stat at a appliance parts house. They can be tricky to replace as the capillary tube on the stat runs up into the evaporator coil of the freezer, which makes it hard to change. Your only other choice would be to get estimates on having it changed for you. Depending on the age of this unit, and what you paid for it, I would take all of this into count before you have a tech come out, as they can be costly. Try turning the control to see if you can get it to cycle off, and if it does, set it about 2 settings higher then that to see if this will solve your problem. Please keep me posted on the out come.
