The freezer can go from -10 to 20 (on the coldest setting - anything higher will be much warmer, while the refrigerator goes from 28 - 40. Sometimes it will not kick in for a while, and temps run higher until it restarts. Already replaced thermostat with no difference. Any suggestions?
ANSWER MS, Check and make sure both doors are closing and sealing properly. Check and clean the condenser and condenser fan(if you haven't yet) and make sure the end of the thermostat is properly seated and installed in the damper/diffuser so the temp. bulb is in the air flow. Have you noticed a build up of frost or ice on the back wall of the freezer compartment, You may have a partial defrost issue. and listen to the freezer fan, Both fans should be running whenever the compressor is running.With such a wide varience in temperatures, we're looking for an air flow issue at this point.
