I have a smeg cr330 e fridge freezer. My problem is that the fridge appears to run at 9-10 degrees despite turning the thermostat all the way to the max (5) At the top in the refigerator there is a thermostat with a long metal wire attached to the back wall.

I need information about the defrost thermostat. I have thoroughly cleaned all coils, under the refrigerator and in the freezer. I had to do this because ice was building up in the freezer and the refrigerator was running constantly.

There is a low pitched howling/humming noise coming from the freezer compartment. The noise is not constant but cycles on and off every 15 minutes.

Sub zero 211 rfd refrigrertor/freezer (on bottom) does not get cold enough to freeze bottom unless you turn the thermostat to a colder setting. Then the refrigerator (top) starts freezing contents as well. Is the bottom freezer fan supposed to run when the top fan is running (it is not running)? If so, I think the freezer motor may not be turning on. Are there any other fixes besides replacing the freezer motor ?
