    I don't understand having to turn the temo control all the way to off in order to get the fans and compreesor to shut off unless it is faulty
    If it was faulty, it should be freezing things running too much of the time.

    I think there is a piece torn off of the back at the top and sruck in the groove at that point. It looks like it is supposed to cover the probe at that point.
    The foam block is NLA as far as I can tell.

    I agree. Maybe I am just not there when it shuts off. Or, maybe it is low on refrigerant and has to run so much. I marked the timer, and it does move.

    If thetemp control is set at 7, shouldn't it shut off if I turn the temp control to like 3?

    *If* the air coming out was cold enough, yes it should.
    Most GE's are set at 5 and C and never as high as 7.

    Does sound like a weak refrigeration system.

    I only turned it to 7 and let run wuite a bit on that setting ti see if it would turn the systrm off whrn I turned it several numbets lower. Turned it all the way to one. Still would not shut the system down until I turned to OFF.
    Seems to hold same temp regardless of the setting.
    Think I might try calibrating the control. If that does not solve the problem, I will scrap it.
    Refresh my memory Jeff. Which way should I turn the calibration screw? I want to get it to where it will open the circuit before the lower settings when cold.
    Experimenting a little here.
    Think it is about time to give up on this thing.

    Sounds more like the refrigerator can only produce that temp and this is not a control issue.

    Sorry, don't know...usually I just replace the control if I think there is an issue with one.

    I guess I might recheck the frost pattern.
    How long should it take to get a consistant frost pattern?

    30-60 minutes is usually good.
