Refrigerator went from not cold to now Freezing
Any help would really be appreciated! ...at first my fridge was too warm -- the compressor would shut down and stay off -- I installed a used starter/capacitor (3 prong but not an exact match) -- now my fridge compartment is always freezing (30 degrees )-- I tried changing the thermostat control (part# WR09X10042) and the new thermostat control (part# wr9x355 -- parts guy said it would work fine) -- however when turned most of the way down it will not shut the compressor off -- I must now turn it down to lowest setting marked "1" -- and to get the compressor to come back on i must turn this thermostat control all the way up past 7. When I left it on 3 -- it freezes everything in the refrigerator compartment -- just so you know I also installed a "Supco" Universal Defrost Timer -- the directions said to set it to "12 hours" and "35 minutes" for defrost cycle -- since this fridge is freezing I now have it set to defrost every "8 hours" for "35 minutes" just to try and help stop the freezing of the fridge part...
Other notes -- I did really clean the coils underneath -- and the evaporator fan in back seems to spin fast enough -- compressor is not very warm or not hot to the touch even though it is always on -- I did replace the defrost thermostat on the defrost coils in the back of freezer - and the defrost heater does glow orange when defrost mode starts -- all ice melts off coils and the freezer fan works well... Seems plenty fast.... Any help would really be appreciated!
