Question about Gladiator Freezerator Top Freezer Refrigerator
My new fridge is too cold in the refrigerator section. it is turned all the way down and it still freezes my drinks. the top is set to freeze. can i turn the thermostat down?
SOURCE: Freezing in Fridge
Does the compressor run continually? Will it turn off when the thermostat is turned all the way down?. If it runs all the time it is possible the defrost timer is not working. It is located under the unit where the water tray is. Along one side or even at the front there will be a black plastic box with a shaft coming out that with a flat tip screw driver can be turned only one direction. Try turning it slowly to see if the compressor shuts off. Also mark the shafts position and see if it has changed after a few hours. It should. If not it is bad. If the unit doesn't shut off when the thermostat is lowered all the way, it could be the problem.... Start with the defrost timer first...

the thermostat in the fridge is turning off your compressor before the freezer has completed its job.this is because it doesnt care about the freezer temperature only the temperature where its located in this case the fridge,try completely defrosting the fridge and restarting it

I have had water/ice down the back of a Gladiator as well. I just emptied it, disassembled the back wall of the upper portion of the unit. Just a few screws, and one has to disconnect a wire harness, and then after removing styrofoam and yet another panel, I was able to locate the drain hole. It was frozen solid. As I have hot water in the garage, I sprayed some in the drain hole area and then in the lower portion to get rid of some of the ice. After alternating several times (and removing the lower panel on the back of the unit), I was able to see a free flow of hot water from the drain tube at the lower back of the fridge. I have towel dried everything and have a fan on it now so that it is very dry before starting back up. I am guessing that the drain tube starts to freeze in the winter months (I am in Wisconsin), and then just has no way to thaw as it is sandwiched in the back wall of the unit. This winter I may try some extra insulation. Good Luck!

Bad cold control switch.
The cold control switch should open when the set temperature has been reached. If the control does not open and turn the compressor off, it will continue to run and freeze items in the refrigerator section.
If the control is not closing, the compressor and all fans will stop operating. Check the control for continuity. If you don't feel comfortable checking this yourself, get a repair person out to check it out.
Hope this helps.
