Re: ice crystal build up
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.

In the back there is a radiator and it is frozen solid, you have to deice it, unplug the fridge and take the cover off and remove the ice build up, hair dryer should do the trick, or leave it unplugged for few hours.
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.
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

hi!! we have read your problem..every problem has a
solution.the temp depends upon your need.if you are using stronly freezers for storing food items like meat, then you can set the temperature to (0-10) degree celsius. else you can set it to (5-15) degrees.always keep the liquid items closed in the refrigerator failing to which it causes crystals.it also costs dearer since you have to defrost then. so always keep your food items covered.hope your problem is tackled..have a nice day
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.
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.
