    where is the unit located??? in a garage the ambient temp would be too cold for normal refrigeration

  • Ken Bledsoe May 11, 2010

    Can you take off the back panel to expose the coils to see if they are full of ice. If the coils get covered with ice it will not bring the temp. down enough to cool things off. I know it a pain in the **** taking it off but only way to see what is going on. The simple things are already found out.

    Can you hear a fan inside the freezer compartment?

PSC23NSTESS FREEZING VEGTABLES


Side by Side ModelsIf foods, such as fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator are freezing, it can be caused by several things. First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If food in the bottom of the refrigerator is freezing, this could be caused by a refrigerator not having enough food to absorb the cold air.
  • If food in the door is freezing, move the door bins up or down so they are one notch away from freezer vents (Side by Side models only).
  • The fresh food control should be at the normal setting of 5.
Freezer on Top Models
First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenehit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Since the cold air coming into the fresh food section originates in the freezer above, the rear of the top shelf will be the coldest spot in the fresh food area. Avoid placing delicate items that freeze easily on the back half of this shelf.
  • If food is freezing in the produce (fruits and vegetables) or meat pan, it may be that the temperature controls are not set high enough. Since cold air naturally falls, the pans can get too cold if the refrigerator is not running long enough to maintain good air circulation. Adjust both controls up one notch.

My freezers compressor is getting very hot and the freezer is not freezing


Fridgidaire Upright Freezer appears that the compressor is getting hot enough to burn ( serious discoloration) the linoleum below the freezer.

The compressor is hot to the touch.

Freezer is working just fine.

Top of freezer not freezing, bottom of fridge is?


Could be the evaporator fan motor is not working. This is what circulates the air from the freezer to the refrigerator section.

Freezer does not freeze fast enough, icecream gets soft


Faulty Cold control (Temperature Control)
The cold control is a temperature actuated switch and should open when the set temperature has been achieved. If the control does not open and turn the compressor off, it will continue to run and all items in the fresh food section will begin to freeze.

If the control is not closing, the compressor and all fans will cease to operate. Check the control for continuity.

This is usually not a do it your selfer.

Fridge not cold enough


Check freezer... for Frost build up and if Fan is blowing, Check condenser... To make sure clean, and the fan is blowing by compressor, Check Recirclating Vents in refrigerator... to make sure theres no blockage, CONTROLS ...should be in the middle setting, YOU CAN TRY turning FREEZER CONTROL To A WARMER FREEZER SETTING Allowing.. MORE AIR.. to refrigertor side.
