Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Vegetables in crispe are freezing

I have a GE model PSS26MSTSS side-by-side refrigerator in my house. It is approx 2 years old and we have been having issues lately. The freezer was getting warm and it looked liek somebody had left the freezer door open a bit (it has never shut as fgood as the fridge side). Once we found it we cleaned it out - removed all of the ice and then plugged it back in. In the morning the temps in the freezer and fridge went back to normal so that was good.

Now, I just nopticed that my vegetable crisper is freezing my veggies. I put a thermo in there and the temp in the top of the fridge was 37 degrees and 22 degrees in the veggie crisper. It would appear that there is a problem with the air circulation - i'm looking for a blockage somewhere but I don't know where to look - the manual doesn't say - this is where the fan is or this is where the vents are -- please help.

Check for blockage of the damper door which regulates airflow from the freezer into the fridge. It might have gotten some ice buildup there while the freezer door was open.

    Yes, it's low on the partition between freezer and fridge. Take the plastic grill off the front and see if the damper door is jammed open, or if the damper door motor is bad. Sorry for the delay - I was out of touch a couple of days.

Vegetables freezing in crisper drawer


This is an issue with the convection system in the refrigerator, while the cold air trapped withing the crisper drawer remains and the temperature of the moisture in the area drops below the freezing point, the water content acts as a cover and thereafter enables the vegetables to freeze. A slight rearrangement of the utensils within the refrigerator solved the problem

thats because when you open the door ALL the cold air rushes out.(the bins stop this effect)use a thermometer in the middle bin and adjust the running temp accordingly,this will also stop your lettuce from freezing.
