Check the thermostat, to make sure that it is working properly. The theremostat is a long wire in the top of the freezer up near the fan. If that is bad it will not let your freezer cool correctly

SOURCE: 2002 RM 2852, the refrigerator (lower section) will not work its warm inside, but the freezer (upper section) works fine, it will freeze water bottle to hard ice. All fuses are good. Please help!!

cooling unit is bad my friend there is a temporary fix but in my opinion not worth your time take the unit out and flip the refer upside down this sometimes dislodges the blockage in the cooling unit all a rv fridge is is amonia and salt if not used all the time the salt crystalizes in the orfice and blocks the unit a rebult cooling unit 550 about and labor 4 hours at your dealers rate a new fridge about 1500 installed
my shop 360 for labor 550 about for unit 910
I ALLWAYS RECOMEND REPLACING THE FRIDE COMPLETLTY
you get all new electronics and a new box

SOURCE: Fridge is freezing food

I have had the same issue with thick frost/ice at the back of my Fridge and almost called an engineer and considered replacing it.. BUT you don't want to so that: Do this:

1. Take freezer draws out and empty fridge so it is lighter and easier to move Fridge Freezer out
2. Chuck some warm soapy water down the drainage hole in back of fridge to ensure it is not blocked
3. Pull the plug. Leave it off for 5-10 mins.
4. Plug it in, reload her
5. Next morning.. perfect all back to normal

I think the unplugging just resets the thermostat and gets your machine back to life.

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Fridgidaire refrigerator flashing error code 4


From what I remember a flashing 4 means "damper error". Send your model number found inside or on the outside of the fresh food section, The air damper is found between the freezer and fresh food section and regulates temperature in the fresh food section by opening wide for things that warm up your fresh food section example would be opening the door and letting warm air inside . The damper then closes to keep the right temperature. If you have questions please ask, Thanks Sea Breeze

Freezer is defrosting


Many times, on a fridge with automatic defrosting, there is a sensor at the back of the freezer section (behind the plastic) that detects a freeze condition - sometimes these go bad, In normal operation, usually once a day, the timer sends a signal through this sensor and if it shows a frozen condition, it activate a heater (yes, a heater) in the freezer section that melts and defrost the coils. If this system stops working, the ice builds up and closes up the air passages to the fridge section, causing it to warm up, while the freezer section ices up!

Check for icing and maybe try defrosting a little by removing power for a little while. Move any food to another fridge while you are fixing it. The freeze sensors are easy to change, but be careful - electricity can kill. Always hire a professional if you have any doubts about your ability to perform the work yourself.

Side-by-side fridge is freezing food on bottom shelf


Look to the freezer section for a possible frosting on the back wall. If you have a defrost problem in the freezer and air circulation stops cold air from the freezer may settle through the return area of the duct between the refrigerator and freezer section because cold air is heavier the warm air. Normal circulation follows a clockwise pattern.
Also your setting of the refrigerator temperature may be set to cold. Once again cold air settles to the bottom.

Yes the refrigerator knob is just a damper between the freezer and the refrigerator. All the heat removal is done in the freezer section. it just dumps air through to the refrigerator. So drop the thermostat down to about 5 and try that. If food is still freezing
drop the thermostat a little more. If food continues to freeze then your thermostat could be bad. Not sensing temp properly and allowing the refrigeration system to run to long.
Hope this helps
