Hi if you have frost in the back of the freezer, you have a bad defrost thermistor this is located behind the back panel in the back of the freezer, you will see the coils, and at the top of the coils you may have to defrost it to find it, there is a little white sensor, this is the defrost thermistor, part runs about $25. If you dont have frost let me know if you have temp problems in the fridge also and how old the unit is.

How to adjust the thermostat

Hello Keith Wertheim,

Your freezer MAY-BE SET to COOL or your food might be blocking proper AIR-FLOW... CHECK these FIRST before
Set freezing level first... (close below freezing)
THEN set refrigerator levels last...
(very close ABOVE freezing)

- Before setting ANY MILK, MEAT and/or VEGETABLE

STABILIZE (run un-molested) for 24 - 72 hours BETWEEN ADJUSTMENTS.

PATIENCE works the best/fastest...

My apologies just because this has become a GLOBAL site... I'm TYPICALLY an unapologetic Fahrenheit (°F) kind of guy. Since this is actually a GLOBAL site
32 DEGREES is freezing point in Fahrenheit (°F)...
((WIKI conversion discussion at VERY BOTTOM)).

>> Depending one what refrigerator you HAVE...

And... your personal preferences...
Your refrigerator is set very CRITICALLY ABOVE
32 Degrees Fahrenheit (°F) = FREEZING...
but below 40 degrees
(for safely/longevity)
((Don't care about Celsius/Centigrade or Kelvin)).

Your owners manual directs you though SET-UP.
(all that is available on-line as well by searching your model+owners+manual).

Once you are SET-UP (level, square) ...
TEMPERATURE "SETTING" it is a bit of a balancing act
(I recommend you buy 2 ( refrigerator + freezer ))... between the freezer hardness (LARGE range of operation) and the REFRIGERATOR (very SMALL range of operation)

FREEZER working range -20 degrees up to FREEZING.

If it is "A Thermostat" one compartment will necessarily have to follow the OTHER... In MOST cases you simple DETERMINE
ICE CREAM... (freezer adjustment first).


design ... More fun.
