Whirlpool Design Style fridge (Model# EB22RKXX00) freezing veggie

Hi we have a Whirlpool Designer Style Refrigerator (Model# EB22RKXX00 w/bottom freezer) which has been freezing vegetables in the lower left pull out drawer. The fridge and freezer are set to the correct temps. approx. 38 + Zero degrees F. The right hand drawer does not freeze veggies. I tried opening and closing the Humidity Slider on the face of the drawer front, that didn't change the symptoms.

I did notice that there is a vent that enters at the back right bottom of the Refrig. compartment but the drawer that is freezing veggies is the bottom left drawer.

I looked for thermistors, etc, in the walls, floor, but couldn't find any such in this fridge.

We love this fridge. Nearly 18 years of service &, with the exception of this, NOT ONE PROBLEM!

HELP.

Thanks, Ken

    Ginko: Thanks for your reply however, since this is a Frost Free Fridge, there is NO ICE BUILDUP
    anywhere and the freezer hold 0 degrees F just fine. I'll double check the gasket.

    Any other thoughts, let 'em rip.

Did you try defrosting completely the fridge, if there is ice formation, or if the evaporator system is not working well the condenser may be under stress, and the freezer does not keep right temperature. |

Also ensure that the door gasket is fine.

Food freezing


Hi Susan,
I had the same problem with food freezing on the bottom of the compartment, especially the veggies. I had set the thermostat to 34 for cold beer but I guess the thermostat is off a bit. I put a thermometer on the bottom shelf to make sure that I had control of the temp and set my thermostat until it was 36 inside. The thermostat on the front reads 40. I guess that 38 might be the magic number for you.

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.

This is a common problem with old top mount refrigerators. The foam between the the two cavities starts to break down and sweat due to the differences in temperature between the two cavities. You can try emptying the unit, turning it off for a couple of days and leaving the doors open giving it a chance to dry out, if the condition returns after a short amount of time, then it is time for a new refrigerator, there is no cure for the breaking down of the Styrofoam inside the unit
