refridgerator
 
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.

Gene.

David,

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.

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?
Thanks
Dave
