Question about Refrigerators
Unit has twin sliding lower level freezer compartments " over /under " located below the main single door w/ dual L/R handles " opening " refrigerator compartment . 1st. = Hi -door is freezing fine / lower door - freezer compartment is not freezing to desired temp./ effect = frozen items are thawing slightly as in a defrosting 'effect ' . Hmmmm. . . ? ? ** SO-FAR I have the settings of L - @ 12 o'clock / R @ 2 temp. knobs set / ROOM TEMP. is 77 F. Thank - you Fixya.
Don't think it's the temp control problem, I suspect one on the defrost elements at the top is faulty, if food starting to defrost in the cycle indicates the lower element is working overtime.

Your refrig has a mechanical damper (the a b or c knob) it may be broken (uncommon ) \ is the freezer fan running even if the cold control is cycled?? Other than that it must be a faulty cold control These are very reliable refrigs and your problem is interesting. Please rate my solution

if the flap was open then truely excessive cold air is coming out/escape from the freezer causing no freezeing. you need to defrost your fridge.
Note also that frost build up increases time to freeze your food on the freezer. it also causes your fridge an increase in electricity consumption.
defrost your fridge for some time ti remove the frost build-up.

Solution Found! The problem is when the temperature surrounding the
refrigerator in the garage falls to < 45 degrees, the thermostat
regulating the refrigerator will not call for the compressor to kick in
to provide cooling (it's temperature requirements are being met). Since
there is no demand, the compressor will not cycle, which is how the
freezer is kept cold, and the freezer eventually warms up to match the
refrigerator temperature. Frigidaire makes a "Cold Kit" that I ordered
and installed from RepairClinic.com for $22 (Item
#: 1037646; Description: Garage kit). It's basically a strip heater
that runs off the control power to warm the thermostat and causes the
compressor to cycle once to twice a day to keep the freezer frozen.
After installation, the refrigerator stays at 40-45 and the freezer
stays around 0 degrees.

make sure all your fans are turning. maybe try to remove the knobs and see if you can turn them without the knobs, possibly they could be stripped.

Hi, yes, your thermostat could be faulty, yes there should vent( damper), check controls on freezer side, controls amount of cold air going to ref. side, yes could be stuck by ice, yes both adjustment are necessary, check manual, some thermostat are very sensitive, you should adjust gradually, wait for about 40 minutes, before adjusting again. yes there's vent flap (damper) yes that could be your problem, normally they get stuck with ice, remove covers to locate it., you 're smart, you will see, damper, good luck.
