Typically, the refrigerator control is the thermostat, the freezer control
opens and closes an air duct from one side to the other.
Like the others say, set the controls in the middle. Change the controls one
letter at a time, and wait 24 hours before deciding if you want to change it
one more letter.
If you set either control to the max one way or the other, you usually
create more trouble than it's worth.
I changed a compressor last week for a very intelligent lady. She called
back the next day to tell me the temps were off (20F freezer, 50F refrig).
We spent several minutes on the phone, and finally I figured out she turned
the controls to max cold, to get the thing going. Wrong thing to do! I
suggested she turn them back to where they oughta be, and quit trying to get
the machine to do things it's not designed to do. I havn't heard back from
her. In the service industry, if they don't call, it's working fine.
Makes me wonder if you've got the knobs reversed, or if you're turning them
in the wrong directions? Or if there is some other problem like a bad
evaporator fan. Hmm.....
