Things freezing in the back of the crisper drawers

We have had the problem of vegetables freezing in the back of the crisper draw and the large pull out "pantry draw". We bought it new in 2003 and it has always done this. I read the manual and tried to make all the adjustments, I always thought I was doing something wrong. Now I realize that maybe the thing never worked properly. Of course it went out of warrantee this year. Any help? Don

This isn't a great solution but hopefully it will help you some. it's not uncommon for the drawers to freeze up in light usage situations i.e just 2 people no small children not alot of door openings etc. there is an insulation kit available for this but in my experience it really is not a big help. first off you may set the refrig temperature to a warmer setting like 39 and then more door openings.
Keep in mind that when engineers designed these refrigs. they base their designs on average family of 4-5 with alot of door openings. like i said not a great answer but hopefully it will help ya some thx peyton

Why is everything in the crisper drawers freezing?


Crisper draws are at bottom of fridge, cold air collects at the bottom and warmer air rises. Turn thermostat dial down, mine is set on 2 out of 6 and every thing stays fresh and doesn't freeze. In very hot weather I do sometimes turn it up to 3.

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

The lettuce freezes even when we dial the control to 45 degrees. Please help


#1 Does your lettuce freeze in the crisper drawer? If so this would be your thermistor located behind the temperature control knob. At the very top inside the top cover is where it is located. It looks like a device with a wire covered in plastic that reads your temperature and allows your refrigerator to cool evenly. If your lettuce is not in the crisper drawer than this can also freeze your vegetables and dry them out. I hope I helped you.

Freezing in the bottom draw of my LG Refrigerator


YES!!!!!!
Remove the bottom drawer.
In the back you will see a small dime sized hole.
The hole allows cold air to circulate around the crisper.
Plug the hole with tape or anything that will fit the hole.
Set temps back to say 36 in the ref. and 0 for the freezer.

This should help.

Vegetable and fruit crisper drawers freezing foods


You have a defective thermistor and damper control in the fresh food or a bad control board.
Check the thermistor first.
Also, adjust the return air damper at the bottom left side of the fresh food sction to warmer.

Amana Bx22s5W freezes food in the crispers


I've had the same issue with an Amana BX21TL. In my case, the problem was that the various air flow adjustments were all directing the cold air to the bottom of the fridge, underneath the vegetable crispers.

What I've done to fix this was:
1- Made sure there was a tight seal between the vent opening at the back of the fridge (at about mid-height) and the rubber/plastic duct that directs air to the meat/cheese drawer.
2- Made sure that the adjustable opening at the back of the meat/cheese drawer was fully open.
3- Made sure that the adjustable opening at the back of both vegetable crispers were fully open.

Hope this helps.

Vegetable draw is freezing the vegetables


if you pull out the vegetable drawer, you will notice a vent on the left side in the back. get some tape ( I use aluminum tape ) and cover the bottom half of the vent, that will help keep your vegetables from freezing. that should solve your problem. Joe
