Whirlpool S20b American style f/f. The fridge is very cold and some foods are freezing.


Suggest lowering the refrigerator set point to a lower number such as 3. There is usually an indication of normal setting on the adjustments. Wait 24 hours and check the refrigerator compartment again. Use a thermometer to record the temperatures. The meat compartment will be normal just below freezing. If no success then read the following.

One reason that this occurs is that the unit is working near continuously to reach the freezer temperature. Another words the unit is not capable or cooling the freezer to the prescribed temperature. The result is the excess cooling eventually reaches the refrigerator section causing the refrigerator to freeze. The unit will if this is the case run nearly continuously. This situation is counter intuitive. Freezer not reaching set point, excessive cooling over cools refrigerator therefore refrigerator freezes.

The cause is either the freezer door/seal is not closing or sealing the freezer compartment or the compressor or defrost cycle is not functioning properly.

Check the freezer door seal using a strip of paper. Check to see if air is flowing from the vents in the freezer. Using a thermometer check the temperature of the freezer. Listen for and record if the compressor is running or not.

The normal freezer temperature is around '0' Fahrenheit. If no or little air is flowing from freezer air vents look for ice on the back wall. If ice is present it is likely the auto defrost cycle is not working. Attempt to defrost by hand which requires several hours with everything removed.

Check that lint and dust has not blocked the coils under the unit and that the lower fan is running. Usually warm air exits from the machine grill in the front. Remove the grill and check for air flow and debris buildup. Vacuum if necessary.

And unfortunately if the compressor runs continuously and no air blockage underneath would indicate that the cooling capacity is reduced requiring a major service or replacement.

Hope this helps?

Too cold


Refrigerators and freezers have a thermostat control inside the refrigerator compartment. It is normally some type of dial with numbers and a graphic indicating warmer or colder.

Place a thermometer inside the cold box. Wait one hour and record the temperature. Adjust the thermostat one or two numbers warmer, then wait 12 hours and record the temperature.

The interior temperature for a refrigerator must be below 40F for food safety. A good range is 35-38F.

Amana SZD22MB2L is freezing in refrigerator compartment


I would start with checking that hte air damper that controls air coming from the freezer over to the fridge is working properly. Thats more than likely the issue. Just in case also check that the temperature control is working as designed

Fridge is freezing in the lower part of the fridge...vegetable and meat compartments


have you check the temperature?

The temperature controls are preset in the factory at 37°F for the refrigerator compartment and 0°F for the freezer compartment. Allow 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize to the preset recommended
settings.

FRS26H5DSB2 freezer is only freezing bottom shelf, fresh air side


Your model should have an Adaptive defrost control located inside the fresh food compartment. That is the most likely reason for your problems with your defrost problems. If you are able to reset that leaves me curious. To get the proper air circulation we will need to get the defrost working on time, and clean around the condenser below the refrigerator. Once the ADC is replaced the refrigerator should begin to operate more efficiently and these problems will resolve themselves as long as door seals and temperature setting may need to be returned to there normal settings. The part number for the Adaptive Defrost is Part Number 1036287 I will assist you in the repair if you like, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Refrigerator not cooling sufficiently/ Freezer not freezing


Yes, if defrost board is bad it will cause problems. Need to listen for fan inside the freezer compartment also. If freezer does not defrost cold air will not circulate properly causing warmer temperatures inside refrigerator. Is model number SXD524VW ?
Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
