Shutting the freezer off and still having the fringe on

Sounds like you have two different problems. 1) If the freezer is freezing up on the lowest setting, sounds like your thermostat is bad. As the thermostat is a passive device it should open the contacts and turn the entire fridge/freezer off when satisfied (temperature set is temp reached). Sometimes the thermostat will get stuck and not turn off. If you can get to the thermostat remove it (plug pulled out from wall,PLS) turn the dial/knob slowly you should hear a click, if not give the thermostat a tap on the side a few times. Sometimes this will unstick the contacts. If not replace thermostat (can be costly) I suggest you check it with a meter before replacing. 2) It also sounds as if the defrost timer maybe stuck or defective, the defrost thermostat, in the freezer may be bad and/or the defrost heating coil. All of these parts are easily checked with a meter, once you find them. You will need to defrost the freezer first.
You didn't mention what brand of animal we are working on. If it is an Amana or similar they have a damper between the freezer and the fridge which is thematically controlled. They all go bad and when they do they shut (usually) trapping all the cold air in the freezer and everything in the fridge is warm. If this is the type you have find the model number look up the freezer damper part # and replace it, however first remove it and see how the freezer reacts. For if the thermostat is indeed defective the compressor will run continuously and you will freeze up non the less.
By the way, there is no way to turn off the freezer and use the fridge only, as they use the same coils and compressor! If you have 2 settings one for the freezer and one for the fridge all the freezer control does is open and close the damper door, as per the temperature setting.
Hope this helps, good luck.

I have a Kelvinator Fridge P120 Product Code: 10325 and we have no manual for the defrost or temperature dial settings can you help me with a pdf Manual?

Hi Aaron, Apparently this is a Fisher & Paykel fridge made by Kelvinator.

F&P has a support page for manuals, etc., here. I found a fridge / freezer user manual, here. F&P maintains that this manual is applicable to all of their fridge / freezers, so don't be put off by all the model numbers covered (the P120 model is specifically listed however).

If this is not the correct product, please let me know & I'll see if I can find the one for your appliance. I hope this helps and good luck!

Where abouts is the thermostat inside the fridge there are white and yellow wires that go to either side of the fridge and the yeallow ones are broken what are these wires for it is a kelvinator C375vm

It sounds like you have a cyclic defrost fridge,Kelvinators were originally fitted with heat assist thermostats,so in order for the fridge to come back on a yellow wire heater was run around the cooling evaporator in the fridge compartment start running again at approx +4C so when the element fused the fridge did not start again until approx +12C.So instead of replacing heater a different thermo was used that came back on at +4c deg regardless.Kind Regards.

Kelvinator fridge/freezer problem

It could be a thermostat but is more likely to be a defrost problem. If it freezes up within a short space of time I would suggest contacting a fridge guy who should be able to diagnose either the defrost heater, defrost thermostat, defrost timer or thermostat. Hope this is of some help.
