    is it easy to fix a thermostat on a LG fridge. When rang the service centre and asked whether i could fix it myself if i got the part, the ladys comment was are you a fridge mechanic. But i have fixed alot of things and wondering if this is easy or needs a professional.

My kenmore coldspot mode 106.53394300 is freezing items in the fridge


If further adjustments cannot be made to the thermostat, the next step would be to replace the thermostat or if so equipped, the temperature thermistor.

Refrigerator freezing food


Fridge thermostat dials are often problematical due to the ones that are numbered 1 to 10, is 1 the warmest or the coldest as the number is lower? Some companies put 'warmer' and 'colder' which avoids confusion. My advice, put it in the middle '5', and leave overnight, check the temperature in the morning with a fridge thermometer. Then change the thermostat dial to 8, and check it the next morning with a thermometer. The next day put it on 1, and leave overnight, check the temperature in the morning. If the thermostat has gone, all three morning temperatures will be the same.

You mention 'or as your website suggests', you know we are not Frigidaire or anything to do with the retailer? We are Fixya, people just like you, helping others. I am a caterer, and just happen to know about fridges. I get them repaired professionally, but always ask for a full explanation of what went wrong. We recently had a sandwich storage fridge that was freezing food, and it was the thermostat that needed replacing.

The things you did, cleaning the coils, will actually make the fridge run colder. The Defrost Thermostat is unlikely to be the problem, as when they don't work, the evaporator, the part that is where the chilled air comes from turns into a block of ice. When that happens, air can't pass through it and the fridge warms considerably.

Due to the damage this freezing is causing with your water and filter, I would suggest you call a service engineer and get it fixed professionally as you will be swapping out parts that are fine. Correct diagnosis is the key, and they will also check the gas pressure at the same time. Consumers can't work with refrigerant gas, it is *******.

I have a frigidare fridge FRS26HF6BQ2 that the fridge is freezing. We have replaced the thermostat ourselves and it is still freezing. Does the thermostst need to be clipped back on the the exact place we...


it defenitely has to placed exactly where it was. from the description it is unable to read the correct temp from inside the fridge hence its consequently making the compressor on for too long causing the fridge to freeze.

Why does the fridge part of my zanussi freezone fridge/freezer, keep freezing the food?


Hi,the problem you are encountering is as a result of the fact that the thermostat which regulates the cooling temperature in the fridge/freezer is bad hence there is no regulation of the cooling temperature in the fridge/freezer section, hence the food in the fridge freezes up.

The solution is to replace the thermostat of the unit,here is how you go about it;

1.You have to disconnect the fridge from the power source.
2.Locate the thermostat at the bottom of the unit,at the top left corner above the condenser.
3.Now you need to locate the wire ends or wire harness and unplug them.
4.Replace the thermostat,reconnect it back,put the back cover back and you have completed the job.

Take care of yourself

The fridge freeze the food


The thermostat is probably stuck closed and bad. A good replacement would be a Ranco A12-1560. If its not the thermostat there may be a stuck relay on newer modes coolers.
