This answer was rated:

WE have a Baumatic Integrated Fridge Freezer in which the Fridge keep freezing up.
We do not have a instruction Manual as this appliance was already installed in the house when we took in over.
The small dial at the top righthand side of the fridge panel does not seem to make any difference when adjusted
Appliance Model BR27B
If the fridge is freezeing in there then its either down to a faulty fridge sensor or the control board here im afraid.
To check this you need to remove the control panel at the top of the fridge which has the dial on it.
Behind there you will see the control board.
On one side is a wiring block with thin wires on there.
These are the sensor wires so you can work out the 3 sensors thats usually there. As 2 will be for the freezer and the other is the fridge. It doesnt matter on working out which is which as you just need a multi meter to test them.
Check each one and see what reading you get. Its usually about 20K ohms on each.
If you find one is faulty then it will be the fridge one.
Now the bad news for this is because the sensors are foamed in at the back you cannot access them and replace them so if a sensor fails im afriad its game over for it.
But if the sensors test ok then the control unit will be the fault here and will need to be replaced as this can be fixed. But the control board is an expensive part as its comming up at about £130 on your model.
So check the sensors if you can and see what you find. As the fault will be either the sensor which cannot be replaced or the control board im afraid.
