Re: Amana ABB1927DE lower drawers freeze and lock...

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.

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.

Purchased in 2002 and is starting to freeze in the

Check the back of the fruit and vegi drawers. If theres a slot for an intake port try closeing it (if adjustable) Check thermostat setting for fridge and adjust to a lower setting.
Finally make sure door closes and seals closed, clean gasket with mixture of white vinegar and water (1 cup vinegar to 1 gallon warm water). If this fails internal thermostat may need replacing.
