Default Refrigerator freezer mystery:too cold
Model Number: FPUI1888LF2   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hi:
Above unit is 3 years old, and for some time has had a problem of the freezer being much colder than I desire, and resetting the thermostat &/or freezer vent controls do not cause any change. Even with thermostat knob set for warmest setting (almost off), the fridge temp is 40F, and the freezer is 0f.
If I turn thermostat to a colder setting, the freezer can go down to -5F.

I replaced the thermostat in the fridge, but it did not change anything. I checked both the old & new stats for continuity, and they did function.

Any idea as to what else might be causing such a problem?

Hi. I'm having a similar problem but haven't had any help yet. I read some about the control board being the problem but not sure. Please let me know if you find anything that will help for you. Thanks

Well, my fridge seems to be improved after replacing the thermostat, though the freezer remains colder than I desire.
Though I don't quite understand it, I spoke with the manufacturer help line, and they tell me that the freezer unit is designed to maintain a temperature of 0 degrees, and the thermostat somehow controls only the fridge temp. Like I say, I don't understand how the freezer doesn't have a thermostat control of it's own, yet still maintains a constant temp.
Atleast my freezer is no longer < 0 degrees------an improvement.
