    Thanks for all the suggestions....... I really appreciate your help ....... My hubby switched the fridge off for a few hours had a good look at it and
    apparently he found a little bit of plastic paper over that little hole
    at the back with the red thing sticking up! ....sorry I don't have a
    name for it but it is probably something to do with circulation ..... that seemed to cure the problem



    Thanks again ....I don't have to buy a new fridge!

Pehaps the damper door motor is burned out or the damper door is just stuck open causing to much air to flow into fridge side. Damper door is located at the very most top-back-left corner of the "fridge" side.... goodluck...

Could be that the little door that apportions some of the freezer air into the warmer part of the frig is broken. I'm guessing it has a simple wire lever to open and close it, and if it had been stuck in the past, somebody may have forced it, bending or breaking the wire.

I really need more information. Like exact model number of said refrigerator. Here are some good tips. There may be a vent that leads to the freezer, if so close it. Second question is place a thermoeter on the top shelf in a glass of water for 4 hours, what is the temp. Do the same thing on the shelf that is freexing. If the tempatrues are equal turn up the tempature again. If not the circulation in the compartment is blocked. Make sure the the back of the carptmen has a gap to let air circulate vertically. Modern refriderators use air circulation to help reduce energy costs from compressors overworking. 
Thanks PJ

How do you raise the temp for the fridge, food consistently freezes, button raises reading to 45, then drops back to 29 instantly.


A real problem, if your fridge continues to show 29f (-1.6c) then everything will obviously freeze, I know this sounds silly but you are trying to turn the temp up on the food compartment & not the freezer? Just a thought. If not please call the service centre @ http://www.dacor.com

Fridge of my Hotpoint FFA90 fridge-freezer freezes


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

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.

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!

Vegetable and meat draws freezing everything temp@16 deg. f.


Turn your thermostat down. If all the rest of the food was even 45 degrees, it would be okay. The vetable and meat drawers will always be colder, so you set the level for the rest of the fridge at what is tolerable.
