I just defrosted my Magic Chef mini fridge and now it's

Customer Question

I just defrosted my Magic Chef mini fridge and now it's running way too cold. I keep turning down the temperature dial (it's at 3 now) but my orange juice and milk keep freezing. Which parts control the temperature itself? There's a tube along the right-hand side of the fridge with a housing and another tube inside that. Am I missing a piece or something? My model # says MCBR360HB but nobody recognizes that number. I've tried 360W, 360S, etc. but some don't know those either.

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

There is only one part that can cause the refrigerator to get too cold and that's your thermostat itself. The thermostat is the part behind the dial you turn to adjust the temperature inside your refrigerator. You'll need to order and replace this thermostat to resolve the issue and the part is about $25 or so. Below is a link to the part you'd need to order and replace.
