    I have the same problem and have been fighting it for about 2 years. I have spent more money on groceries and could probably habe bought a new fridge. My food freezes in the refrigerator side, no matter what the setting is on. Thanks for the info. Too bad someone around my area couldnt have helped me after 3 service men have been out to look at it! What is a shroud???



    Thanks VERY MUCH! :)

These refrigerator use the cold air from the freezer the cool the refrigerator. At the rear of the upper refrigerator compartment, there is a shroud. Remove the shroud and you should see a "flapper" that shuts off the cold air when desired. You will most likely see the flap is broken. Once the flap is broken, you lose control of your refrigerator temp. This is a common problem with this refrigerator.
Hope this helps.

Refrigerator is freezing food and liquids with the controls set to their lowest setting.


This could be caused by a defective=> WR60X10052 Damper Control Assembly or could be caused by a defective fresh food thermister=> WR55X10027 Thermistor or WR55X10027 Thermistor. You will need to run the diagnostics found in the GSS25LGMA Service Manual I am here should you need me, Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911

Is there a work around for installing a new Temp Control circuit board in a GE Refrigerator Model # PSS27NGMA WW. Orig bd has 3 connectors and new bd only has 2 connectors. I am attempting to replace...


I have a feeling that the temperature control board is not the problem. The fresh food compartment has two thermistors that relay information to motherboard through your control panel. If thermistor is bad or covered by an item it will continue to cool and freeze fresh food. Your air damper between freezer and fresh food compartment may also be wide open.

GE GSS25LGMA refrigirator/freezer refrigirator side is freezing


There is an electrically activated air dampener in the upper left back side of the refrigerator section which most likely has broken (in the open position), allowing cold air from the freezer to continue to enter the fresh foods section. Replace the dampener assembly.

Ge fridge GSS25LFGww, fridge part freezing food


Hi, Change the controls back to normal settings. Make sure the freezer is getting 0 to 5 above. If the freezer is getting cold enough, try and turn the cold control to 1 and see if the refrigerator shuts off. It sounds like the cold control in not working properly and will need to be replaced. NOTE: The freezer temp has to be right temp or the fresh food side will not work proper.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Yes the refrigerator knob is just a damper between the freezer and the refrigerator. All the heat removal is done in the freezer section. it just dumps air through to the refrigerator. So drop the thermostat down to about 5 and try that. If food is still freezing
drop the thermostat a little more. If food continues to freeze then your thermostat could be bad. Not sensing temp properly and allowing the refrigeration system to run to long.
Hope this helps

Items sometimes freeze on refrigerator side of unit - model GSS25LGMA


It is most likely a bad damper motor.  This is where the cool air comes out into the fridge section.  On this model it is a fairly common problem and comes a whole assembly.  The part # is WR49X10091 and will cost anywhere from $100 to $122.  Knowing this model I would bet this is your problem.  If the damper is bad and stuck open cold air will just keep blowing in.  It is suppose to open and close based on the temp setting.  Let me know if you have any other questions.
