Kenmore Side-by-Side Gets Too Cold?

My Kenmore side by side freezes everything rock solid. The recommended setting is 4 and we have it at 2, but it still freezes too much. The refrigerator also gets too cold. Any ideas?

I've lived on my own alot and paid attention a lot. Usually when your fridge freezes up like that your freon is low if not tht then maybe your thermostat is bad.

We have had a side by side refrigerator for the past 2 years. I can't say I like it, because it is much smaller in capacity than our previous one which had the freezer on the top.


Previously I had the freezer portion and the refrigerator even in temperature. For the past month of more, I lowered the freezer portion to 1-1/2 and everything is rock solid.

Can anyone explain this to me? I hate to spend the money on the service call from Sears if something can be done by us.

Thanks for your help.

I guess I don't understand your problem. You say your freezer is freezing everything rock solid and you don't want to pay for a service call. To me, that sounds like it is doing what it is supposed to do.

You should have a separate freezer control. Everything should be rock solid except ice cream.


If ice cream is too hard, raise the temperature a little. If things are too soft then you may need a new thermostat.
