SOURCE: Refrigerator Freezing

Your refrig has a mechanical damper (the a b or c knob) it may be broken (uncommon ) \ is the freezer fan running even if the cold control is cycled?? Other than that it must be a faulty cold control These are very reliable refrigs and your problem is interesting. Please rate my solution

SOURCE: Our GE monogram refrig compartment is constantly below freezing.

2 possibilties most likely is a bad temp sensor it thinks its warmer in the refrig than it actually is. the next possibilty is a motherboard has gone bad in the unit.

SOURCE: True TS-49 Refrigerator freezing food

NEWER T-49 s DO NOT HAVE ANY DEFROST HEATER OR TIMER OR CUTOFF'S All solutions involving repairs on these items are bogus. The defrost occurs when the compressor shuts down normally. During this time,since the fan never stops, it should circulate above freezing air around the coils and a slow defrost may occur. It is a poor system at best, and does not work well if the compressor runs a lot. MY erratic cooling was fixed by removing the copper sleeve and cold control probe from the evaporator(cold coil on top) Polish up the copper tube and the probe, reinsert and bend the copper sleeve very slightly so that it fits snuggly into the evaporator. Mine was very loose and not making good contact with the metal evaporator, giving erratic control of temperature.. Good Luck!!

I have true commercial double door cooler box. The temperature stays around 28 degree if when I set it very low. it causing big problem for us because everything freezes.

If you mean by low you mean number 1? This would mean the thermostat is bad. Number 9 would freeze everything anyway. I'm leaning towards a bad thermostat. Email if you want a thermostat

Beverage Air MT17 cools sporadically. I turn the temp control setting to 5 and it will go down to 28 degrees F and the next day it will be at 55 F. I have to turn the control knob to off position then turn...

Low refrigerant would make it inefficient but if it chills to 28° it can't be that bad. I think you have a control issue. The compressor runs when you reset to off & on, then chills until it satisfies the thermostat, then shuts off. But then is not starting again when the temperature rises. You'll need to follow the control wiring to see what contacts are open and not passing power to the compressor. Control wiring is typically 24v ac or 115v ac. There's also the possibility that the compressor is tripping out on overload at 28°. You effect a reset when you turn it off, then on.

Most likely one or both of the thermistors are bad. Usually pretty easy to find behind a vented cover about 2" X 1" on the side walls of the refrigerator and the top of freezer (if freezer is on the bottom of the unit)

I have a true commercial refrigerator that the temperature is not working. It reads 11 degrees F and wont go up using the temperature control knob. Any advice?

The only thing it could be is the thermostat. Or, maybe your thermometer is reading wrong. Is everything freezing up? The thermostat is located up near the top usually on the side of the fan housing inside. It is easy to replace if you have a refrigeration supply company close by.

Refrigerator is freezing things at low settings

The thermostat ???? Without knowing what the original problem was, I can only guess that this the original problem.The cold control is only as good as the devices circulating the air in the refrigerator. You probably have a damper control problem. Make sure the damper between the freezer and the fresh food sections is operating properly.
