At least make sure the operating hardware and radiator is dust free, and the spacing around any radiator is not heated/has good air circulation.

My whirlpool refrigerator freezer (top) is frosting the food up. Food is not frozen solid. The motor or fan keeps clicking on and off. Refrigerator is only 1 1/2 years old.

1) the wires behind panel, inside of freezer may have loose connections,or I ran into a bad compressor with a brand new fridge, that is back of unit, bottom left or right, take off cover to check if connection is good there also.

"OP" what is the meaning of this code refrigerator frigidaire

Good Morning friend, thank you for your post!

I see that your Frigidaire refrigerator is displaying an "OP" error code and you want to know what it means. An "OP" could stand for open thermistor. This could be a possible problem with your thermistor or control panel. In any case that it is a false error code I would recommend performing a reset on your refrigerator and you can do that by unplugging the power cord for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help resolve your issue I would suggest consulting with a professional technician for proper diagnosis. Hopefully this is helpful information. -Matt

Fridge keeps freezing food

I have a 6 year old Kenmore Elite top freezer.. I have been dissapointed from day one with this fridge.. the fridge has air vents all over the inside of the fridge. We find that if one of these vents have anything in front of it that something somewhere else in the fridge will freeze. Its very frustrating.. I find that I loose allot of fridge space because I am always juggling space to make sure that these vents are always open... very bad design.. sounded like a good idea at the time.. but never again..

Hi the freezer trianle keeps on flashing and made everything defrost

Hi- could be many things, but first check if the coils are clean. they need to be able to breath and dissipate heat. Does it run constantly? Was the door open. check for obstructions and close it. Allow time for it to reset.

Is the refrigerator cool and functioning correctly? If not, it may be the compressor.
Check to see if the evaporator coil is clogged with ice. It looks like a small car radiator, with aluminum fins. If the defrost is not working, it will be clogged with ice. Transfer food to a cooler and examine it. Can't get to it, try an old fashion defrosting, and see if it works. If it does, you may need a new control board.

Hard to say without seeing it.
Good luck

Our Crystal Cold propane refrig freezer unit keeps everything frozen but the refrig portion isn't keeping things cold and we've had to throw out a bunch of food. Any suggestions on what the problem could...

I am working on similar problem on my Crystal Cold refrigerator. I've found the seal between the  main door and the refrigerator body is starting to gap. We've also recently noted a few small flies in the frig. To diagnose, I took a butter knife and gently tested small gaps in the seal and found the ones on the lower left of the door (facing the frig) went all the way through. I'm on line now looking for a good price on new seals. They may be as much as $100. I may, if I can't get a better deal try some foam rubber window seals, the kind that comes in small rolls.

I have a kenmore three door refrigerator ice crystal built

This is usually due to an air leak at the freezer door/drawer. Check out the gasket and if it is bad, out of place replace it. If the gasket looks good go around the door with a dollar bill closing the bill in the door. The dollar bill should resist being pulled out. If you find spots where the bill slips out easily this is a spot where the door/drawer is not sealing good and letting in air causing the frosting.
