    Could this be a cold control issue?
    Getting too warm when the ambient air is much hotter than normal....possible but not likely.

    Should I try increasing the freezer to 6 in an attempt to get the unit to shut off between defrost cycles. Or maybe decrease the fridge to 4 to get more cold in freezer to get it to shut off.
    I see no real benefit to either. Is it not going on and off any more on it's own? If it is running too long it is not really showing up in the temps!

    Is it not going on and off any more on it's own? Answer: I haven't been watching it 24/7 but when I go outside in the morning it's still running. Historically it's been off. This morning 5/39 degrees (freezer/fridge), last night 0/ 38.

    If it is running too long it is not really showing up in the temps! I know so so what now? I am totally flummoxed!

    Why we inspect the evaporator frost pattern, why we touch the coils to see if the warm from our hand makes the frost disappear to get a better idea what is happening or not happening.
    If I had to hazard a guess the refrigeration system is weak ( leaker, restriction, inefficient compressor or any combination of these ) will make the refrigerator run too long, temps not to get too cold from running too long and warm up when asked to work hard.

    Yup, I was afraid of that. It was probably operating like it is presently until the unusually high temp weather occurred and that pushed it over the edge. I probably would not have noticed the 0-11 degree excursions in the freezer since the fridge has never run greater than 41 degrees until the super hot spell. Will probably leave as-is until it gives up the ghost and then haul it off. Regardless, I got my original $100 used price out of it for the last 12 years and consider myself fortunate...

    Jeff, thank you for your well thought out analysis and help on this. Too bad we couldn't have had a better outcome...

    Until my next perplexing HVAC issue!
