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.

Fridge Freezes Everything


there is a motor with a flapper that opens and closes to keep your temp correct in the refrigerator side most likely the motor is bad and stuck open so your air from the freezer has constant flow to the refr side. the flapper is in the back of the refr behind a cover where the air flows in.

Refrigerator freezes everything even on the lowest setting


Is everything really frozen or just the top shelf stuff? You may have a thermistor (temp sensor) problem if the compressor just runs and runs and runs all the time. Take a glass of water and place a thermometer in it for about 3 hours then take a temp. reading. That will let you know what the real temps are. See if you can cause the compressor to kick off and on by changing the temp settings (go to real low for about 5 minutes then back up to high). Let us know what happens.

Food gets frozen


If your refrigerator freezes its contents, even when the cold control is set to its lowest setting, its cold control is probably defective. Call an appliance repairperson. As a rule, refrigerators are designed to maintain 37 to 40 degrees F in the refrigerator box and 0 to 5 degrees F in the freezer box. Setting either compartment to lower temperatures generally costs you extra in energy dollars. If the icemaker keeps making ice, even when full: 1) Lift the bail wire to shut it off. 2) Empty the bin, remove the icemaker, clean it, and reinstall it. 3) If the problem persists, consider having an appliance repairperson remove and replace the entire icemaker and valve, a relatively affordable repair. With this type of problem, it's often better to replace the unit rather than to pay for
