Bad cold control symptom ?
« on: July 14, 2019, 08:00:25 AM »

Fridge has been running fine since last port when I thought it may be too warm...
Now I think itís too cold..
Nothing is freezing but itís getting to 32 and I have to turn it almost to 2 to have it shut off..
Would a bad cold control let it get below freezing ??
Maybe I should just bite the bullet and replace it..
Anything I can do to get it to work normal until the new one arrives ??
Thanks

Here is  was that post. Did you change the cold control.   https://www.appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?topic=22850.msg116194#msg116194 Yes it could be and sounds like bad cold control.
