Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator

Follow up to question: meat & veg tray freezing food on new side by sid refrigerator

Hi tborn6:

I hate to be a pest, but I still am unclear around how I should set the controls to avoid the vegetable and meat bins in my refrigerator from freezing. I agree I do not want to keep my vegetables crisp, but I don't wish them to freeze.

The freezer portion of my refrigerator is working fine. I have some meat, vegetables and a little ice cream in the freezer.

Please let me know. Thank you.

    Great feedback and instructions from tborn6. I do believe this may have fixed my problem. In 24 hours I only had a little formation of ice on the top of a glass of water which I believe may have been caused by the items in my vegetable and meat tray being frozen.



    He was great to follow up to questions and provide additional instructions. Five star service. Thank you so much for your help.

    Ground beef has been in freezer since mid-July (6 mo.) and seems to have a little freezer burn around the edges.

With very littlle ice cream I would set freezer temperature to -2 degrees and leave the humidity seting where you have it remember to let the unit run for 24 hours to stabilize then you can make another adjustment. By the way you are not being a pest I don't mind helping you at all, I am a service manager and answer quesitons allo day long.

What causes food to freeze in the bottom of the refrigerator & meat & cheese tray


See if there is a temperature setting on the side of the drawer. Mine has a small lever that opens a hole to the freezer to keep that drawer colder. If it's opened too far the food will freeze.

Your Feedback


the settings that you said sound correct, you do not want your vegetables to dry out and shriviel up. The meat compartment should be running around 31-33 degress to keep the meat fresh, basically that is the ideal situition for you. Do you store allot of ice cream ? thats the only thing that needs to be extremely cold (-10) degrees. Best to keep in a deep freezer not the one inside.the only thing that I use mine for inside is ice and food that is going to be ae real quickly. long term storage is best in a deep freezer that you have to manually defrost. That way it neveer freezer burns the food. Hope this helps out.

Bottom vegetable/fruit drawer freezing fruit


to the left of the bottom drawer is a veg/meat slide switch.make sure it is all the way on veg.if it is on meat,it opens a small doorway to the freezer and lets the cold air in and will freeze the food in the bottom drawer.in some cases,you will need to remove the drawer and shelf and then take apart the doorway.ball up some putty and jam it it the hole to completely seal it off
