FREEZING FRESH FOOD

My refrigerator is out of control. The Fresh food compartment is freezing any food item that containes water or moisture, like cucumbers and the like. I am kind of in between the control board in the rear of the Unit, or the fan and baffle unit.

Having looked closely at the FF fan and baffle, I didn't notice anything unusual. They tell me the thermistors rarely go out. So I ma stuck on this. Can you give me any insight on this particular problem...?

Thermisters are cheaper than control boards. You can check them from the control board. This repair manual tells how: HERE

How do I freeze asparagus.?


Hello Anita;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Both air and moisture are detrimental to all food storage, both in your fresh food section or your freezer. Leftovers in your fresh food section should be discarded after 3 days. In the freezer section they can last months depending on the food product.

It is nice for temporary storage to use items like tupper ware, but you can not get all of the air out of the container. It is better to leave the food product in the original bowl or place in a container where you can cover with plastic wrap, pushing down and making contact with the food product, getting rid of the air.

Your refrigerator temperature settings are critical. The fresh food section should be between 35-40 degrees F. and your freezer -2 to +2 degrees F.

Ok, lets freeze the asparagus. With a paper towel soak the outside moisture from the asparagus. Wrap it in plastic wrap ensuring there is no air in your package.

Do not put anything in your freezer or fresh food section directly in front of the air vents to avoid blocking air flow.

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.

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.

Is there a work around for installing a new Temp Control circuit board in a GE Refrigerator Model # PSS27NGMA WW. Orig bd has 3 connectors and new bd only has 2 connectors. I am attempting to replace...


I have a feeling that the temperature control board is not the problem. The fresh food compartment has two thermistors that relay information to motherboard through your control panel. If thermistor is bad or covered by an item it will continue to cool and freeze fresh food. Your air damper between freezer and fresh food compartment may also be wide open.

Hotpoint fridge freezer freezer ok but fridge not working temp is always 21 degrees tried to set to 4 degrees but just keeps going to 21 freezer is fine -22 degrees


Merv -

Most manufacturer's fridges are designed for 34 degrees F in the fresh food compartment and 0 degrees F in the freezer compartment. Setting the fresh food compartment to a value lower than 32 degrees will freeze any moisture in foods, fruits and vegetables and freeze water in juices and other beverages resulting in broken containers, exploding cans, etc.

What you need is another freezer. Trying to convert a refrigerator into a freezer is going to be very difficult - especially without ruining it.

Good luck!

Water pressure is at a trickle in door dispenser on fridge. filter is clean and mounted properly.


Check the water reservoir in the rear of the fresh food compartment. It may be frozen. If so, there may be an issue with the "damper control assembly" (located in the upper left side of the fresh food compartment) that allows cold air from the freezer compartment into the fresh food compartment. This cold air works its way down to the reservoir (and perhaps other items) and freezes the water inside the reservoir, which disallows regular flow of water at your external dispenser.

Contact an appliance service company.

We have a ge side by side and the refrigerator is freesing stuff. the model number is GSS25X SNA BS


Is it all areas of the fresh food side that are freezing your items, or is it the drawer area?

There is a direct connection (on my GE side-by-side, at least) between the freezer compartment and the drawers in the fresh food compartment. The size of the connection is controlled with a wheel or a slider. This could contribute to freezing in that area of the fresh food compartment.

Otherwise, it could be the temp sensor(s) in the fresh food compartment. If the computer thinks the temp is too high in the fresh food compartment, it will continue to cool.

It could be a problem with the motorized door that connects the freezer compartment to the fresh food compartment, located at the top of the dividing wall between the compartment. That door should close when the temp in the fresh food compartment is cold enough. If that door mechanism has failed, is disconnected, or otherwise blocked in the open position, cold air from the freezer compartment will continue to circulate into the fresh food compartment.

Food and drinks freezing in my refrigerator. How do I adjust?


Inside your refrigerator is a control on left side of the panel. Try to adjust there and try to close the dampers near the lower drawer bins. If that don't work change the temp a little higher in the fresh food compartment. But closing the ducts should do the thing. Let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Fridge keeps on freezing everything inside of it


This refrigerator only has one thermostat located in the fresh food compartment it is designed to activate the sealed system (cooling) until it reaches approximately 37 deg f in the fresh food compartment. The damper controls how fast the cold air can move from the freezer compartment to the fresh food compartment. Allowing you to control the temp in the freezer by controlling the flow of cold air to the thermostat.

You have one of two problems.
#1 your thermostat is no longer opening when it achieves set temp. fix = replace thermostat pn 61005798 $35
#2 your damper arm or assemblie has broken. Fix = Replace damper or broken arm and actuator.

Fresh food side freezing


the air damper is stuck open or tempature control is bad. look thru the vents(use a mirror) on the left rear(top side) of the fresh food compartment (right hand door) to see if the air damper is open/closed. i am sure it will be open since your freezing food in the ref section. if it is open ,watching with your mirror turn ref (fresh food) control off. the air dmper should close, if not damper could be stuck(ice build up,piece of foam,ect) if you can determine damper door is free, then best thing to do is replace controlassy.(120.00 or so) good luck
