Amana BRF20 - freezing in fresh food drawers

Although the temperature is set a "1" and the rest of the refrigerator compartment is a good temperature, the items in the fresh food drawers keep freezing. Also, there is a hole in the back of the compartment between the two drawers in which there is a plug. The plug gets pushed out, by ice I believe.

    used to be just the left drawre, now it's happening to the right one as well. Seems to oocur when food is placed on the shelf immediately above the drawers. It's not a door issue.

Amana AFI2538AES The refrigerator portion keeps freezing the fruits and vegetables. The chiller control is on the warmest setting and the refrigerator temp is set at 43. I have been raising every once...


Our Amana afi2538aes is doing the same thing. Had a repairman out. He called tech support at Amana. They had him adjust the "thermistors" but it is colder than ever running at 28-30degrees in the fresh food compartment despite being set at 46 degrees. Tech support also recommended installing some sort of "ice bin seal kit to take care of the problem" according to our invoice from repairman. Repairman was told that the ice bin in the fresh food compartment puts cold air out (to keep the ice frozen) which freezes the food in the fresh food compartment. I called Amana and the rep I spoke to said he couldn't find record of this being a problem with the model but tech support told our repairman "we've had a lot of problems with this happening."

Refrigerator freezing food


Ah... where is that manual when you need it! Actually, the internet is WONDERFUL for such emergencies! I found a manual on the FixYa site for you in pdf format. It will be easier to find on your computer!
Now to the soluiton...
Generally with the top freezer designs the main thermostat controls the temperature of the freezer (which should be about -18°C or 0°F and the there is a slide control that allows a metered amount of cold air to drop down into the "fresh food" compartment.
As an immediate adjustment, turn the "Fresh Food" slider down 1 number LOWER that what it is set to at the moment. Is fresh food still freezing? Then put it down another number lower.
But you should also check the temperature of the freezer compartment with some appliance thermometer... leave it in for several hours or overnight for a proper reading if you've just added food to the freezer. It should be around -18°C or 0°F If you adjust the freezer, you may have to go back and readjust the fresh food setting.
I hope this helps! Don't forget to download the digital manual!

My frost free fridge freezer is too cold and freezing the food in the bottom drawer there is some ice around the bottom drawer


You may have an issue with the temperature control assembly. Check the temperature settings (ideally at "one-half way" for both fresh food and freezer compartments).

Contact an appliance service company.

Salad in drawer is freezing


Good day,
One user claims that the return air vents or vent located at the bottom rear of the fresh food compartment, have collected enough junk to block the cold air from returning to the freezer compartment. You can clean them out but I cannot verify that solution.

The crispers are located in the coldest part of the fresh food compartment.
This problem can occur when the machine gets light usage especially in colder weather, when the machine running time drops and the air in the fresh food stratifies, causing to cold air to pool in the bottom.

Normal may no longer be normal. Controls by their design will tend to run colder as they age. You might try tweaking the control warmer.
Patience and time are the most important tool you have to work with in dealing with this issue.

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

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.

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.

Amana refrigerator fresh food control does not work at all


first of all, check to make sure your fan is working, also check the inside compartment for the damper should be open when your rise or lower the temperature settings on your dial. when you rise your temperature dial to 5 you should feel air flow coming out of the damper, if not check to make sure that the evaporator fan is working first, if it is than check the damper door should be open sometime this damper door gets stuck on something or they break off.
