Make sure that the fin tubes on the back are not loaded with dust, clean off and don't over load the freezer section. If there is no room for air flow the temperature will keep getting colder to compensate for low air circulation, thus freezing items in the lower section.

SOURCE: FRIDGE COMPARTMENT FREEZING

i had the same problem the sensor starts at the back of the pcb and snakes its way dow the back of the fridge into the freezer conpartment i ordered a new sensor thinking it was a temp sensor but turned out to be a defrost sensor compleat and utter hassel to fit due to the expanding foam i had to eventualy cut the block off that conects to the pcb and then reconecting it once i got the cable through the foam first 2 days seamed to work fine while there was nothing in it as soon as i put food in it again the fridge started to freeze everything again then about a week later it still ices up at the back the fridge but doesnt seam to freeze the food so much now so still unsure about it all
btw it was the exact same model and before i changed the sensor the light and the super light used to flash on and off

SOURCE: my daughter's mini fridge has a freezer

This is a drawback of most mini-fridges. Start by defrosting everything. Then fill ice cube trays with water and keep lowering the setting until the water freezes. Just go a little lower, no more. Fridge should not freeze food. If the fridge stays closed all the time food will freeze. Also if the freezer element gets ice buildup it must be defrosted. Not automatic like home fridge. Most kids today weren't born when the last fridges that had to be defrosted were in service.

SOURCE: why does everything in my fridge freeze eventhough

Looking over your refrigerators service manual and wiring diagram shows and electric damper that controls the flow of cold air from the freezer to the fresh food compartment. I just may be stuck with a little frost or we need to check it along with your jazz electronic control board part number 12868513. That board appears to control temperature, defrost and most everything on your model. And if not stuck the electric motor could be bad on the damper. These model are a little tricky so hopefully we can find the problem soon. If you would like to approach this yourself I would first unplug for a little time and try to force some warm air into the damper with a hair dryer to see if the damper will begin to move. Turning freezer colder also may cause the damper to shut more so as to keep the cold air in freezer. If the controls are not responsive then it's a toss up between the two. Be back with photos and links, Thanks Sea Breeze

Can you tell me why please?


All the big cooling happens inside freezer compartment. Freezer gives little cool air to fridge compartment. Now when the vent blocks that little cold air cannot go into fridge compartment. Thus your freezer works good but not fridge compartment. Milk goes bad but frozen meet keeps good.....

Vent freeze up either due to defrost problemt, defrost drain line problem, Evaporator fan problem or even can be your damper motor not opening due to unit failure or frozen damper door.

Fridge at room temp


Good day,
two common reasons fro this.
1. The fan motor in the freezer compartment has failed and is not driving air to the fresh food compartment.
2. The second common problem is the defrost system has failed, blocking air from entering the fresh food compartment.
First indication is frost building up on the rear panel in the freezer. Remove rear panel and inspect.

Here is an excellent tutorial on defrost system repair.

Everything in fridge freezes intermittently


Your vent has and electronic vent controlled by a setting on the control board. The electronic vent or circuit board are most likely the reason for the problem.

Hi Simon I saw that problem because you have a hole in the bottom of the freezer connecting directly on the wall of the fridge you need to block it ... because the air flow directly from the freezer 2 the fridge . Hope it was helpful.
