Everything in frig is frozen and it won't turn off.
Everything in the frig is freezing even with the temp control on the lowest setting (0). I have done everything I could think of such as vacuuming off all the coils and taking everything apart and checking all the wiring. I've unplugged the frig and let it sit for a day just to see what would happen. Everything in the refrigerator is freezing and it is running non-stop. I want to know if I should replace the temp control part or if there is something else I should check. The model # for the frig is 253.71132104.

Re: Everything in frig is frozen and it won't turn off.
If the compressor is running non-stop then the temp. control is not telling it that it's "cold enough". If the compressor isn't running non-stop then you should look at the air damper (little window) that lets the freezer air into the refer compartment... if it's stuck open then you will always get cold air pushed into the fridge eventually becoming a freezer in itself.

If food in the bottom of the refrigerator is freezing, this could be caused by a refrigerator not having enough food to absorb the cold air. If food in the door is freezing, move the door bins up or down so they are one notch away from freezer vents. The fresh food control should be at the normal setting of 5.
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.
Refrigerators: 36 to 40 degrees. Ideal temp is 37 Fahrenheit.Note: A temp above 42 degrees promotes bacteria. Freezer: temp should be -5 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit. Ideal temp is 0 degrees.
You have to wait about 4 hours for everything to stabilize. If you are still having ice forming inside the freeezer then the rubber seal around the door is probably the problem. If they have a split, tear or crack, etc. it will let warm moist house air into the freezer and turn to ice as it cools. If this happens in the refrigerator it'll turn to water and collect in the bottom of the frig. New seals can cost around $60 per door.
If you pack too much food in the unit it may also cause freezing because the air needs to move around in there and food shouldn't block the vents in the back walls of the unit.
There can be many reasons why your refrigerator is freezingyour food. To see what could be happening and to figure out how to possibly fixyour problem. Take a look at this tip which contains many of the causes andsolutions to fix the problems.
I believe your Thermostat is bad if you remove it it can be tested with a ohm meter and a glass of ice water. But first when you turn it all the way down it should have an audible click. turn off the electricity/unplug the frig take the plastic housing off to exspose the temp switch take off the elect wires should only be two. put an ohm/volt meter on the two terminals and ck for continuity. at its lowest setting(warmest) it should shut off no continuity as you turn it up it should click and have continuity. let me know if you need further. good luck
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.
Could be the thermostat isn't working and the unit is just running and running all the time. To me that seems the most simple explanation right now. Can you check the temp inside when on the lowest setting for a day, then turn it up to the highest for a day and see if there is a huge difference in temps? Does the compressor motor ever turn off or does it run continuously? Suspect that t-stat...
