Kenmore bottom freezer model freezes veggies in the crisper

Recent problem...items in crisper drawers freeze! The drawers have a humidity control...should it be "more humidity" or "less humidity"??

    Oops! It got worse...we discovered that the vents in the freezer had frozen up. We turned the level way down and I thawed the vents with a hairdryer. (This was last night). Today, it is starting to freeze up again...rats. Any suggestions?

I never go by that / just hold my finger over the air port and move it till i feel move air or less to set it the way i need it ,,, less air puts less air into crisper to cut down on freezing

    one last idea without looking at it ,,,,, check to make sure the doors close tight ,,,, if it sucks any air it will also cause the problem / adjust doors by adjusting top hinges / larry

Where do I put cold cuts and meats I don't want to freeze?


Best place for cold cut meats is the bottom drawer in the refrigerator. It's also good for cheeses. That drawer is the coolest but not freeze place. The upper two drawer are good for veggies and fruits. We put the lever controls in the middle selection for them.

My refrigerator Kenmore model 795 77563600 freezes up the vegies on the left side drawerand werever I store on top of that drawer. What can it's wrong with it?


Your refrigerator as cooling tubes that allows the cold air or the freezer to go to the refrierator side. If one becomes blocked with frost all the cold air is then forced to route through the other cooling tube. And that what it sounds like is happening to you.

My Kenmore side by side is fine, except for freezing everything in the crisper drawers.


The coldest place in your fridge is in the crisper drawers, manufactures know this and they even put heaters under the floor of your fridge to try to heat it up a bit in there, if you set your freezer temperture to low there will be less cold air current that flows into your fridge but it will flow in over a longer period of time, that air is about -22C so it will be blowing on your items in your crisper for a long time and it will probably freeze them, all very confusing and complicated but it may help to turn your controles for your freezer to a warmer setting, on the other hand if you only open your fridge a few times a day the cold air being denser will settle in the bottom of the fridge and freeze the crisper area, not much you can do about this, except eat more food... :-)

The bottom crisper in my refrige freezes my veggies


To repair this problem I dont think just toggling a lever is going to work. You need to locate what is suppose to sense the temp in the fridge section and how it stops the air flow to the fridge section. Basically most refrigerators cool in the freezer using the freon coils and transfer the cold to the fridge section using the fan in the freezer. Then your thermostat (temp sensor) stops the air flow by either turning off the fan or closing a small door going to the fridge section. This door is called the baffle and if you put your hand up to it and can still feel air coming thru when the temperature is 39 degrees or lower its not doing its job. With a model number I could help better but my guess is if its not freezing everything only the veggies your thermostat is off or the baffle is unable to close all the way and may have ice or debris in it. Either way I hope this helps.

Vegetables keep freezing in the fridge crispers


You have to heat the coil in the back of the fridge. Take everything out and open up the back, then take a hair dryer and heat the coil. After doing this, adjust the heat settings on the freezer.

Why are my veggies freezing even thought the temp is set to 40?


Most fridges have crisper drawers that have a selection lever on either the front or side of the drawer that allows you to select eiher veggies or meat. Veggie setting is supposed to keep the crisper drawer warmer, while Meat setting makes it the coldest possible.

If you don't have the selector slide levers, I would suggest you use the highest possible crisper drawer available, as the lower in the frdge compartment you go, the colder the air will be. That should resolve the problem you're having, other than lowering the fridge temp setting slightly.

You might notice a cold air exchange vent next to your crisper, which supplies cold air from the freezer section into the fridge section, so that could be contributing to the colder temps in the crisper where you keep your veggies.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Refrigerator crisper drawers are freezing veggies


Shut the air flow into the crispers if you can. If not, turn the refrigerator temperature warmer by just a few degrees. The air into the fridge from the freezer is channeled into the crispers.

Kenmore elite fridge crisper drawer freezing stuff


If you have a side by side model you need to look at the refrigerator compartment wall on the left of the bottom drawer and move the slide control to the warmer/fruit/vegitable setting instead of the meat setting.
