Amana ABB1927DE lower drawers freeze and lock potential

My lower storage drawers often freeze my carrots, celery etc. Also, I was wondering if there is a way to lock the refridgerator for curious culinary toddler raids.

    This is crazy! I have the same fridge and problem. I have had my fridge for about 7 years and it has always been great. Now my vegetables are freezing in the drawers.

    I will take the advise of making sure the drawers are closed tight. Any other thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I had the same problem: I would put the refrigerator control all the way down to 1 and the items on the lower shelves were still freezing. I also had ice building up in the freezer. An immediate solution is to DEFROST the refrigerator. Ice can accumulate in the vents and obstruct the air flow. If that works but the refrigerator fails again after a short time, then the problem is likely to be in the defrost circuit. It is possible to engage defrost by rapidly switching the freezer light switch 5 times (usually activated by the door, but do this by hand). Doing it again will put it back into cooling mode. You may not be able to tell if it is working unless you remove the back freezer panel and see ice melting or determine that the heater element gets hot. If defrost doesn't work, then you've got your problem. If you want to fix it yourself and can handle electrical circuits, the circuit diagram is usually tucked in under the kick panel.

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.

Left veggie drawer freezes everything in it - cauliflower, lettuce, water, carrots, etc. How can this be fixed?

Could it be that the thermister is out of its mount? Sometimes that is all it takes to throw off the control. How about a service manual? LG French door Tech manual. ( not an owners manual )

When i juice greens i am no longer getting any juice from them. is my blade dull?

If you mean green leafy greens, the juicer is
not really designed for them. A sharp blade
will extract some juice from them, but I found
a new blade seems to increase the vibration
issue. Acme works best on carrots, apples,
celery, etc.

I juice mainly green vegetables: kale, spinach, etc, then carrots -and it doesn't have enough power, slows down and then stops - any idea why?

Sorry, but it's not designed for leafy vegetables.
Carrots, apples, celery-yes. For kale, spinach
try a inexpensive, hand powered, wheat grass
juicer. About $50.

Fridge is freezing food

Make sure nothing fell below your crisper, deli drawer section. There are some air return vents below them and if they get partially obstructed would allow cold air to pool in the bottom of the fridge.
Make sure your freezer control did not get turned up too high.
Also you may want to check with the manufacturer as they did have some issues with some of the bottom mount models exhibiting this problem and they developed a repair kit for them.
