This button is the winter/summer setting.
If you switch it on so as the red mark shows this is set for the summer setting.
What it does is allows the interior light to come on very dimly when you shut the door.
The fridge then thinks it is too warm and starts to cool down more, designed for when the ambient temperature is high.
Hope this helps

If your fridge is freezing to much put the thermistor closer to the fins (it will make it colder so it shuts off sooner)

Why is the refrigerator side is freezing food


First some fridge 101, the refrigerator/freezer models cool by directly refrigerating the freezer section and the refrigerator section is cooled when "some" of the cold air from the freezer is directed over to the refrigerator side (typically by a fan) to keep food fresh and not frozen a temperature controlling damper opens and closes to regulate the temperature of the fridge by introducing more or below freezing air into the cabinet. In older models where the freezer was on top the air simply "gravity" drained into the refrigerator cabinet, if the food was too cold you turned the fridge knob up and less air sank from the freezer to the fridge, simple but effective.

When you adjust the temperature level it controls the freezer temperature and this turns the compressor on and off to keep the food frozen. There is typically a knob or lever and some even have electric dampers that open and close to direct more or less air from the freezer and direct it to the refrigerator cabinet based on your temperature requirements.


Now that you know how it works there are a couple things to check. If the condenser coil is plugged with dust the internal system pressure will rise and in some cases make the fridge an over achiever and can chill too much so check/clean the condenser coil. Check the freezer temperature control and turn in up, also make sure the fridge temperature control setting is not set too cold.

Finally as the temperature changes around the refrigerator it will have an effect on the inside of the fridge too so expect to turn it up and down as the environment changes, down in the summer and up in the winter.

Hope the novel helps to resolve your issues.

I can't get a regular temperature in my old brown Danby Inglis frig . It is freezing every item in the frig even at the lowest ajustement. Can you help me?


Most likely temperature control thermostat needs replacing. Also check damper between fridge and freezer. If mechanical, adjust where less air is going in fridge section. If not mechanical, but electric, damper door may not be closing.

How do you lower the temperture in the refrigerator?


Letting perishables such as milk and eggs get warm doesn't just effect the taste; it can also allow bacteria to grow. It's essential to guard against this by adjusting your refrigerator temperature when necessary. Read below for how to do it.


1 Measure the temperature of you refrigerator. To measure the temperature in a fridge without a thermostat, just place a normal thermometer in a glass of water and place it inside the fridge. Check back 5 to 8 hours later to see what temperature the water is. This allows you to determine the temperature indirectly.

  • 2 Adjust the temperature. Once you've identified your refrigerator's temperature, it's time to change the settings. Turn the indicator to the left to make the temperature warmer, and to the right to make your refrigerator colder. It is important to only change the temperature gauge by one setting, regardless of how much you think it must be adjusted. This prevents freezing or thawing of food by making the change gradually.
  • 3 Check the temperature again after 6 to 8 hours. If it's the temperature you want, you're set. If not, move the dial one setting colder or warmer, depending on your needs. The ideal temperature for a refrigerator is 40 degrees. Wait at least 24 hours in between each adjustment to allow the fridge time to achieve that temperature.
  • 4 Prepare for changing seasons. Where you live can have a big influence on your fridge's temperatures. You may need to adjust the temperature lower in the summer and higher in the winter to maintain a constant 40 degrees. Those who live in moderate climates can worry less about weather effecting their refrigerator's temperature.
  • 5 Check the air vents. If you're having trouble achieving the right temperature, even after numerous adjustments, make sure the vents on the inside of the fridge aren't covered. This can prevent air flow, making it impossible to cool the refrigerator

  • Hope this would help you.


    Have a nice day!

    FREEZING REFRIGERATOR


    Hello Pam, Welcome to FixYa. In actuallity most fridges whether they are side by side, conventional top mount, or bottom mount, the control for the fridge section is nothing more than a damper which allows or prevents air flow through the fridge section. The thermostat which control the "run time" or actual temperature is the freezer control. It is possible to set the fridge control at "1" and yet still have items feeze because the freezer control is set to "3", "5", or higher. Try adjusting the freezer control to a lower number as well and see what that yields. You may also want to vacuum out your condensor coils under the unit...( unplugging the power cord first of course ;) safety first ) this too can cause items to freeze in the fridge section. Without getting too deep into how it all works I'll just say it effects the entire system negatively. Hope you find this an acceptable solution and can take a moment to rate it accordingly. Thank you for visiting FixYa and please let me know if you require further assistance. macmarkus :)

    We have a Hoover No frost refrigerator/freezer. There is no control for the fridge temperature which is now running very cold (it freezes drinks, etc.). What can I do to increase the temperature of the...


    The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
    The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

    Refrigerator freezes everything even on low setting


    Is it a single or double door? Assuming it is a double door. Normally the upper grade models have an auger motor that opens and closes electronically depending on temperature demand. This auger situated at the top LSD of the fridge normally freezes up due to various reasons. Most common is, product is placed to close to outlet which in turn creates a blow back effect and seizes the mechanism. Need to defrost fridge section for about 2 hours for ice to melt. Retry.
    If it is a single door, your thermostat needs replacement. I'm taking it you have adjusted the settings higher(not so cold) but still not correct.

    The refrigerator section is freezing. the temp adjust is at 1


    This could be the actuator is not closing the door that controls how much cold air from the freezer is ciculated into the fresh food section. It could be something broken or there could be ice biuldup on the door itself, not allowing the door to open or close.

    I have a hoover frost free fridge freezer,the freezer seems ok but the bottom of the fridge is freezing all the goods,can you help


    you could have set the temperature too low.
    adjust the tempearature in the middle section and if it would still freezes the bottom part, use the minimum setting and see if it will make a difference.

    Adjust the temperature control for the freezer to a normal setting. Fast freeze is only for when new products are put in that need to be frozen. This locks the system into a continuous run mode and could be responsible for the freezing condition in the refrigerator section. Check the temperatures with a thermometer as the sensor for the freezer temperature could be bad causing the light to come on.
