Frs96zph freezing vegetable drawer

The bottom drawers are freezing. i closed the large return on the bottom with tape, but am afraid the refrigerator is a little warm. Should there be a fan blowing air into the refrigerator?

So if you closed the "large return" and the drawer is still freezing, but the refrigerator is warm? That almost sounds like an impossibility. Could you provide more details. Do you have a thermometer to take accurate readings in the refrigerator?

SOURCE: Vegetable and fruit crisper drawers freezing foods

I had the same problem. Apparently the problem is the main control board. According to the technician that came out to fix mine there is a design flaw and these boards are very sensitive and can blow a circuit or malfunction from the slightest power surge. What happens then is that the control board doesn't "tell" the fan to turn on and off at the right time so the fridge and freezer warm up too much before the fan kicks in and then it cools everything down but since the fan isn't running at the correct intervals and circulating the air all of the cold air settles to the bottom which causes the produce in the drawers to freeze while the top shelves get warmer. I had done a fair bit of research before calling GE and came to the conclusion that this was a common problem. So I pressed them and was able to get the fee for the part waived (before I made the service call appointment) which was around $150. The part now has a 5 year waranty which I find funny, because I'm not sure why it wouldn't have that upfront as my refridgerator is only 2 years old. Whatever!! Unfortunately, unless you have indepth knowledge of refridgerator repair there is no way around the service call and labor. Anyone buying a new model of refridgerator (any company) should consider an extended waranty. The service tech also told me that all refridgerators made after 2001 are required, by law, to have an electronic mother board which in all likelyhood will fail at somepoint prior to when you are ready to buy a new fridge!

Good Lucak!

SOURCE: fan runs constantly, freezer ice melting, bottom drawer in refrig

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.


  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.


  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    SOURCE: Vegetables freeze in the vegetable drawer. Freezer is on lowest setting.

    Make sure that you realise that 1 degree is colder than 2 degrees and therefore a setting of 3 - 5 degrees might solve your problem

    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.

    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.

    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
