Question about GE GSS22JF Side by Side Refrigerator
My approx. 5 year old side by side refridgerator has started freezing food, mostly towards the bottom of the fridge. It started in the produce drawer and mostly effects produce, but yesterday it froze my carrots on the middle shelf. Liquids are not freezing on the top shelf yet.
Cold air settles to the bottom of the fridge. Things that can freeze easy may if the door is closed for long periods of time. This is a normal condition for any refrigerator. Look to see if there is a vent that goes to that drawer and close it all the way. That may make a difference.

dm, I'm not sure if the thermostat is mechanical or electronic. Assuming mechanical...and I do...turn it to the lowest number...does it turn off? If this works properly, the problem is likely not the control. Does the compressor turn off at any time? If not after an hour or so of operation, the stat could be defective. That's my first guess. Oh, have you made sure that you don't have the ducts in the freezer blocked? The would deflect too much cold air to the fridge section.
Next, defrost the unit and clean the condenser coils. This will help the unit work properly. Then, wait awhile with the unit off. Meanwhile, access the compressor in the rear of the unit. Find the largest pipe coming out of the compressor. Turn the unit on. The largest pipe should frost and then, in about 5 minutes or so...either cause condensation or dry out. If neither happens and the line is either not COLD to the touch or frosty, you're low on gas. If the unit is less than 5 years old, you may get warranty coverage on the sealed unit from the mfgr. Believe it or not, too little gas will cause freezing in some cases!

sometimes when the cooler weather comes in you may need to chnge temp setings to a warmer setting to prevent some items from freezing ie: leafy vegetables, water bottles, eggs, etc etc.
now if you are having total freeze up of everything in the ref section then you could have bad temp control or damper assy.

Sounds like a noisy evaporator fan. Take the shelves out ot the freezer then take the panels on the back wall of the freezer off. The fan will be there. Then you will know for sure thats the source of the noise. When it is time to replace it...easy fix. (few screws) Here is an excellent source for the part..www.repairclinic.com. My favorite place for appliance parts.
hope this is helpful,
