If it is only freezing on the upper shelf then you will need to replace the "air diffuser". It is not closing when the refrigerator temp is reached. Here is the part to order.

SOURCE: Refrigerator side is freezing contents

First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.

If your settings are right then the cold control switch is the problem

SOURCE: items freeze in back section of refrigerator

Your freezer is partially chocked and blocked that's why it is not cooling in all the coils. You must flush out the refrigerent and flush out the dirt and moisure from the system and recharge the refrigerent and the unit will work normal. Do not forget to change the drier to avoid repetition of the same complaint

SOURCE: ed22pwxxn00 setting on 3 top shelf items freeze.

Adjust the freezer damper to a higher number to reduce cold air flow to the fridge section. This will eliminate freezing in the fresh food section.

SOURCE: items freezing in the refrigerator

Due to the ice on the vent ( damper ) , the damper is probably frozen open , so it will not close , causing the refrig section to keep on getting colder . Put your hand over the vent and feel the air being circulated . Use a hair dryer on the vent for a time and ocassionally feel the vent to see if the vent closes stopping the air flow .

Milk freezing


Need more information, but try turning the fridge to normal and the freezer the same. Try placing those items in another location. Problem could be a bad air damper.

Fridge looses temperature


Make sure the two vents from the top of the fridge that run into the freezer are not blocked or obstructed in anyway, that's what the problem was in ours. Also do not allow ice to build up on the vents in the freezer.

Have a GE side-by-side profile 25.4. The fridge side is too cold and freezing items in back of top shelf and items in the veggie draw. Settings are 4 for freezer and 2 for fridge and things still are...


there is a air damper that lets the air in frome the freezer side,, it should be in the back top left corner on the fridge side turn the controls to off and listen you should hear a faint sound like a flap closing,, if not it is either stuck wide open, or the little motor has went out,,,( for a temp fix you can tape some of the opening off until you get the parts replaced

Frig has cold spots that can freeze some items


If you can get the brand name and correct model number, I will be able to get this fixed for you. But if the vent ducts leading to the refrigerator bottom are not responding to manual adjustment. Cold air tends to migrate down to bottom of refrigerator, because it's heavier air. Look for correct make/brand and model number and we will fix this. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Items in the back of the refrigerator freeze.


is this something that has just started happening? Most kenmore top freezers have a vent that allows cold air from the freezer into the refrig through a vent located on the back wall in the center of the refrig section. if packages are pushed up under this vent they can freeze. 

If you have widespread freezing in the refrig setion then a temperature control could be the fault. thanks for using fixya. Peyton..

Fridge area freezing food; water dispensor line freezing


sometimes when the cooler weather comes in you may need to chnge temp setings to a warmer setting to prevent some items from freezing ie: leafy vegetables, water bottles, eggs, etc etc.

now if you are having total freeze up of everything in the ref section then you could have bad temp control or damper assy.
