Hi there,\012

Well problem seems in the its thermostat, isn't shutting down the compressor when the set temperature has been met. Check the temperature in the Freezer.... If it is less than 10 degrees F., turn the thermostat to "warmer". If the temp in the freezer is 10 degrees F., leave it alone and go to the temp control in the frig, which is a damper that controls cold air flow from the freezer compartment. Close this damper until your temperature in the upper part of the refrigerator is 38 to 40 degrees F. If these efforts don't shut down the compressor and correct your problem, then the answer is simple. Your thermostat is bad and needs to be replaced. It isn't expensive....

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Simpson N245CNZ fridge was leaking water into fridge part and this was icing over and food was getting frozen even though it was turned right down to warmest setting. Door would be very hard to open.

Seal around fridge door has a split but still seems to seal OK.

My Servis Quartz A model M7065S keeps freezing at the back of the fridge compartment and then defrosting again, even though I have the settings on 1.

Is this normal? Thanks!

I have a 3 yr old side-by-side. The freezer is freezing ice cream solid even though it's turned all the way down. Food in the bottom two drawers on the refigerator side are freezing. Water has dripped under the fridge and has ruined my 80 yr. old hardwood floors. The freezer side is full of frost...even on the ceiling. I have turned the icemaker off and the leaking (underneath) seems to have stopped.   The vent on the fridge side, left of the top drawer, has ice on it.  The wall below it

The fridge part of my fridge freezer keeps freezing up on the back wall; even though the knob has been turned right down. Food in the veg trays are freezing up. The motor has now started being very noisy. i assumed it was the thermostat so have bought a new one - however I cant find where the thermostat is located and don't know how to replace it when I do find it. The model is Ariston AS108 and is 10 years old.


I have never even seen an Ariston ice box. If that is one that has seperate compressors for fresh and freezer compartments then you must have a bad sensor. Never assume you need a control board until you have replaced those. If the unit has a single ... Refrigerators

Defrost Timer? My maytag fridge, model mbb2256ges, bottom drawer freezer keeps freezing all of my food. The dial that controls the temperature does not turn correctly. When you turn the knob it bounces back to the warmest setting, 1, which is ironic considering everything is freezing. Someone said that it is mostly likely to be the "Defrost Timer". What do you think? And is it easy and inexpensive to fix?

When you turn the knob it bounces back to the warmest setting, 1, which is ironic considering everything is freezing.

Hi. I have a Fogel FLP - 27 - 8 sandwich prep fridge. It has started getting colder all of a sudden and is freezing. The temp gets down to 25 or so even tho I have the setting set on 1 now in an attempt to get it back up to 41. It will fluctuate though and is causing food loss. Is this a simple thermostat problem or could there be a larger problem. Also where can I get parts for this model?

I want to know if you can de-ice the freezer without turning the refrigerator section off. There's ice buildup in the freezer, obstructing the door. I want to de-ice it but don't want to turn off the fridge section and ruin the refrigerated food. I've turned the freezer to it's weakest freeze setting & opened the door wide. But the freeze element is keeping it too cold for the ice to melt. There's only one power chord for both sides of the fridge.

Hi, I don't know the model number of my Amana Side by Side fridge. Do you know where that information might be located on the fridge?
