Frigidaire plhs267za is to cold and frezzing the food. what do I check


Good Morning friend, thanks for your post!

From what you have described your Frigidaire refrigerator is too cold and freezing food. I would recommend you check the temperature to make sure it is set to a factory setting of 0 for the freezer and 37 for the fresh food side. You can also check to make sure that there is not food in the freezer blocking the damper from closing. The damper is located near the top of your refrigerator.

Place you hand in the rear of your fresh food compartment to feel if the air is too cold or the damper periodically closes. This could be the cause of your refrigerator freezing your food. If you damper is not working properly you may need to replace it. If your damper appears to be in working order your thermostat or control panel could be the issue. I would suggest having a professional out to perform a diagnosis. If you do not have a professional contact you should visit your manufacturer's website to locate a technician in your area. Good luck. -Matt

PSC23NSTESS FREEZING VEGTABLES


Side by Side ModelsIf foods, such as fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator are freezing, it can be caused by several things. First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If food in the bottom of the refrigerator is freezing, this could be caused by a refrigerator not having enough food to absorb the cold air.
  • If food in the door is freezing, move the door bins up or down so they are one notch away from freezer vents (Side by Side models only).
  • The fresh food control should be at the normal setting of 5.
Freezer on Top Models
First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenehit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Since the cold air coming into the fresh food section originates in the freezer above, the rear of the top shelf will be the coldest spot in the fresh food area. Avoid placing delicate items that freeze easily on the back half of this shelf.
  • If food is freezing in the produce (fruits and vegetables) or meat pan, it may be that the temperature controls are not set high enough. Since cold air naturally falls, the pans can get too cold if the refrigerator is not running long enough to maintain good air circulation. Adjust both controls up one notch.

Water filter inside fresh food compartment keeps freezing up? Frigidaire brand 3-4 years old. Thanks, Steve.


hello,
Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze
Check the cold control, and also the air deflector. As you know, the deflector directs the freezer air toward the front of the frig and the rear of the cold control.

Hope this helpout....

My refrigerator freezes the food in the main compartment. What should I do?


Hello, you do indeed have two control in this fridge. One is just a damper control (It's attached to a baffle box that regulate the amount of cold air from the freezer into the fresh food compartment). The other is the cold control sometimes called the thermostat in your fridge, it's the one on the right. What's happen is that the contact in the cold control have fused together keeping the compressor running all the time and freezing everything. You will need to replace the cold control.
Thanks

Water pressure is at a trickle in door dispenser on fridge. filter is clean and mounted properly.


Check the water reservoir in the rear of the fresh food compartment. It may be frozen. If so, there may be an issue with the "damper control assembly" (located in the upper left side of the fresh food compartment) that allows cold air from the freezer compartment into the fresh food compartment. This cold air works its way down to the reservoir (and perhaps other items) and freezes the water inside the reservoir, which disallows regular flow of water at your external dispenser.

Contact an appliance service company.

We have a ge side by side and the refrigerator is freesing stuff. the model number is GSS25X SNA BS


Is it all areas of the fresh food side that are freezing your items, or is it the drawer area?

There is a direct connection (on my GE side-by-side, at least) between the freezer compartment and the drawers in the fresh food compartment. The size of the connection is controlled with a wheel or a slider. This could contribute to freezing in that area of the fresh food compartment.

Otherwise, it could be the temp sensor(s) in the fresh food compartment. If the computer thinks the temp is too high in the fresh food compartment, it will continue to cool.

It could be a problem with the motorized door that connects the freezer compartment to the fresh food compartment, located at the top of the dividing wall between the compartment. That door should close when the temp in the fresh food compartment is cold enough. If that door mechanism has failed, is disconnected, or otherwise blocked in the open position, cold air from the freezer compartment will continue to circulate into the fresh food compartment.

Fridge keeps on freezing everything inside of it


This refrigerator only has one thermostat located in the fresh food compartment it is designed to activate the sealed system (cooling) until it reaches approximately 37 deg f in the fresh food compartment. The damper controls how fast the cold air can move from the freezer compartment to the fresh food compartment. Allowing you to control the temp in the freezer by controlling the flow of cold air to the thermostat.

You have one of two problems.
#1 your thermostat is no longer opening when it achieves set temp. fix = replace thermostat pn 61005798 $35
#2 your damper arm or assemblie has broken. Fix = Replace damper or broken arm and actuator.

Fresh food side freezing


the air damper is stuck open or tempature control is bad. look thru the vents(use a mirror) on the left rear(top side) of the fresh food compartment (right hand door) to see if the air damper is open/closed. i am sure it will be open since your freezing food in the ref section. if it is open ,watching with your mirror turn ref (fresh food) control off. the air dmper should close, if not damper could be stuck(ice build up,piece of foam,ect) if you can determine damper door is free, then best thing to do is replace controlassy.(120.00 or so) good luck
