Crisper Drawer Freezing Food in Kitchen Aid KBF042FX00

My refrigerator is 14 months old and has started to freeze food in the two crisper drawers on left side.  I have tried adjusting temperature in fridge but that does not help.  This is a 42" with freezer on lower half.  The drawers are above the ice making section in the freezer.  Any suggestions?

Could you look inside the door near bottom outside frame of fresh food side and get the model numbers for me to assist you better. Also if you have a way to check the temperature as you change settings on the thermostat for the fresh food section. We need to see how the thermostat responds to changes in settings. If no changes then we need to focus on the thermostat. Also there is duct that comes from freezer that can have a damper opened or close to different settings. Let me know the model and I will pull up the drawings for your model. Thanks Sea Breeze

Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. 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.

SOURCE: Problem with our KitchenAid Superba

I heard about this problem in LG models, I know that isn't the brand but could helpfull like clues; apparently the problem is the main control board (in LG models). According to the technician that came out to fix, there is a design flaw and these boards are very sensitive and can blow a circuit or malfunction from the slightest power surge. What happens then is that the control board doesn't "tell" the fan to turn on and off at the right time so the fridge and freezer warm up too much before the fan kicks in and then it cools everything down but since the fan isn't running at the correct intervals and circulating the air all of the cold air settles to the bottom which causes the produce in the drawers to freeze while the top shelves get warmer.

I had done a fair bit of research before calling your technician service, and came to the conclusion that this was a common problem. If you have underwarranty, called.
The service tech also told they that all refridgerators made after 2001 are required (by law), to have an electronic mother board which in all likely hood will fail at some point prior to when you are ready to buy a new fridge.

Hope helps.

SOURCE: water is collecting at the

Hi.

There is a drain hole inside the fridge. The drain hole brings water out toward the evaporator. The drain hole is plugged, probably because of iced water inside the thin drain duct.

Check inside the fridge and locate the drain hole at the back. Usually the hole can be unclogged performing a complete defrost. A faster way is using an hairdryer. In that case the operation needs attention. Hairdryer on cold settings does not defrost in deep inside the hole. On hot you risk to damage the fridge panels. Better removing the food and performing defrost.

If defrost is not enough the drain hole must be unblocked using a thin flexible shaft or a copper wire.

If you have an US or Canada model you can find exploded view using the link below.

Fridge is freezing food


Make sure nothing fell below your crisper, deli drawer section. There are some air return vents below them and if they get partially obstructed would allow cold air to pool in the bottom of the fridge.
Make sure your freezer control did not get turned up too high.
Also you may want to check with the manufacturer as they did have some issues with some of the bottom mount models exhibiting this problem and they developed a repair kit for them.

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.

You have a defective thermistor and damper control in the fresh food or a bad control board.
Check the thermistor first.
Also, adjust the return air damper at the bottom left side of the fresh food sction to warmer.
