Well I went back to the first page and re-read some of the early responses. Something in Carol's post caught my eye...Temperature probe.
Temperature probe? There's a temperature probe? So I went looking. There is
a metal wire like a coat hanger, going across the back of the fridge
. Mine was jammed all the way up behind the freezer. No idea if this is a probe or not, but I pulled it down into the fridge area.
The weather won't cooperate and stay exactly the same day to day so it's hard to say. It's cooled down to highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s. But I can say that for the last week I cannot keep the fridge from freezing all my food. Even with the temp adjuster down to almost "off".
I bent and tucked some of the wire back up behind the freezer, with most of it still down in the fridge part. This morning it was creeping back up towards 40 degrees in there, but that was with the temp control down to the last couple notches before off.
So we may be on to something here...
The other unknown thrown into the equation is that this all also happened after I plugged it in and ran on AC for a couple days. I did this and the wire adjustment at the same time. But after switching to gas, it continued freezing my food, even at the lowest setting.
