Question about GE GSS25LGM Side by Side Refrigerator

The fridge gets very cold even when I turned down the temp to #1

I noticed that the vegetables were frozen and the temperature was too cold. I turned the temp way down to #1 and it is still too cold. I thought maybe there is something wrong with the temperature control that it is not regulating the temp anymore.The liquids like milk and soda are not frozen just very cold but the vegetables and some fruits are frozen. Now I turned the temp all the way down to zero and it did not matter, it is still too cold.

    Thanks jumptrout for offering a solution. There were no dampers in the fridge. There were small vents along the side. But there was a humidity control on the vegetable bin which I put it on high.

So my G.E. side-by-side refrig started over-cooling in the fresh food section after the refrig was kept in the kitchen during a water intrusion incident. The refrig was not touched by the water. During the kitchen dryout process the refrig's doors where covered with plastic and it was kept in a negative air environment at 120 degrees for 10+ days . does anyone have an option what harm this could do to the refrig. email me jhrellar@pacbell.net

You have air dampers in this fridge.
Adjust them to a warmer setting.
Look along the left wall down low beside the vegetable bins.
If this does not correct the problem you have electronic temp sensors that have gone bad.
A technician will be needed to determine that.
Keep your fingers crossed that the damper is too open.
Any adjustment will take 24 hours to be noticeable.

    The humidity control should actually be set to low.

    The dampers are there.

    Yours dampers must be electronically controlled through thermistors.

    Your thermistors may have failed or the damper control has failed.

Fridge not cold enough


The higher the number the colder the temp is supposed to be.

In order to prevent the formation of bacteria and other such organisms to affect food the way it does, the ideal temperature range of refrigerators has been mentioned here. Before we look at these settings, it is important to know the format in which temperatures are represented within a refrigerator. Commonly, you will notice a dial representing the figures 1-5 or 1-9 in the refrigerator, and a dial representing the letters A-E in the freezer. The ideal setting is usually in the middle of such figures.

If the dial is in such a format in your refrigerator, try a setting at 3 if the range is 1-5, and at 4 if the range is 1-9. For the freezer, a setting at C is suitable.

The ideal temperature in the refrigerator ranges between 34 degrees F - 38 degrees F or 1 degrees C - 3 degrees C. So that foods such as vegetables and fruits remain fresh and crisp, the temperature may be set around 38 degrees F or 3 degrees C.
The ideal temperature in the freezer ranges around 0 degrees F (-18 degrees C) or lower.

Hello, This problem is going to be the cold control, this can be located in the control panel inside the fridge. This part is also called the thermostat. What is happening here is it has opened and the freezer is getting to cold which is making the fridge too cold. This is why the food in your fridge is freezing. You should replace the cold control and you will be all set. Mike

Refrigerator temperature running too high


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

try turning down the thermostat for the freezer side some times the controls seem backward. However most fridges are desighned for thwe freezer side with some thought giving to pushing some air to the refrige side. in most cases it easier to start back at medium settingsfor two or three days.

Things freese-up in the kenmore fridge


Try turning down the unit a half knotch, 1 full knotch at MAX, the cold air comes from the freezer to the refrig(fresh food) section, its rolls up the back of the wall to circulate it

A fridge that is to cold is usually shown when food nearest the back wall freezes( i get this call plenty times a day, this is the fix)

recommened freezer temp 0-5, fresh food(refrig) temp is 32-40

Frozen Fridge


the temperature controlis most likely bad since you cant control it. the control is the knob you turn to set the temp with. you should be able to replace it yourself fairly easily.
