Fridgidaire fridge is freezing food in the fridge compartment.
I have been told it is the temperature control part #5304404821.
Fridge is running for a long time I cannot shut it off with the control in the fridge compartment I have to unplug the unit.
If I leave it off for a few hours the contol knob will work and shut off the unit. I have the freezer compartment control at 1/2. I will plug back in and it will happen again.
Is it the temperature contol unit mal functioning?
If so is it difficult to install a temperature control unit as per above part#
Is there instructions available to change the temp switch

Hi David,

Most likely the problem is a bad temperature control. I'm not able to give you more accurate advise because the model number you posted does not come up. Verify and repost it, please.

Is this a Canadian model number?

The temperature control has to be replaced and it should not be too difficult, but I can not verify if the part number is correct because this model number does not come up. Where did you get it from? The name plate inside the fridge or a book?

Gene it is a Canadian Unit I got the model# from the plate inside the fridge.
Not sure if their is any manual or specs to assist in changing?
