Sounds like the cold air regulator needs adjusting or is blocked. There should be a lever somewhere near the inside top of the refrigerator whcih slides back and forth -- it should be labeled which direction to move it to make the non-frozen compartment colder or warmer.

Also check for frost buildup in the freezer -- if there is buildup, totally defrost -- there may be ice on the regulator which opens and closes based on temperature.

Ice crystals on food in fridge


What is your temp in the fridge? Check that your door is closing all the way. You have several air vents along the middle of the back way, are you getting the ice crystals of food right in front of the air vents? If that's the case then that is also the problem. Right in front of the air vents is where air from you freezer enters the fridge. I would start with checking the temp in your fridge though.

Why do my vegetables freeze


Do you have frost buildup on the rear wall of your freezer? What is the model number for your Whirlpool? It is important that you provide the model number so I can see what may be causing the freezing temps in the fresh food section/crisper. Thanks JT

Our Amana afi2538aes is doing the same thing. Had a repairman out. He called tech support at Amana. They had him adjust the "thermistors" but it is colder than ever running at 28-30degrees in the fresh food compartment despite being set at 46 degrees. Tech support also recommended installing some sort of "ice bin seal kit to take care of the problem" according to our invoice from repairman. Repairman was told that the ice bin in the fresh food compartment puts cold air out (to keep the ice frozen) which freezes the food in the fresh food compartment. I called Amana and the rep I spoke to said he couldn't find record of this being a problem with the model but tech support told our repairman "we've had a lot of problems with this happening."

In the freezer food is getting ice crystals on it


Do you mean in the freezer or fridge?
Either way, it looks like you have a fault defrost sensor of a bad thermostat.

Neverending ice cystals buildup in freezer


Hi Rachel,

Opened 3-10 times per day, per week, per month?

There is only one possible source of these ice crystals -- moisture precipitating from the air (condensate) -- this air is coming from outside the freezer. It's either getting in when the freezer is opened or coming in around the gasket.

You might try a very thin coat of vaseline on the gasket to get a better seal.

Ice builds up inside packages in freezer.


This is the moisture coming out of the food. It is what causes freezer burn.

The problem is made worse in frost free models by the defrost cylce. Best way to slow it down is to use vacuum bags or freezer bags. Also above 0 F food deterioates faster and below it gets freezer burn and the moisture problem faster.

Fridge area freezing food; water dispensor line freezing


sometimes when the cooler weather comes in you may need to chnge temp setings to a warmer setting to prevent some items from freezing ie: leafy vegetables, water bottles, eggs, etc etc.

now if you are having total freeze up of everything in the ref section then you could have bad temp control or damper assy.
