SOURCE: Side by Side Whirlpool Refrigerator: Refrigerator is freezing food

Hi, riverbyfarm
You did try what i would of recommended first!
The resetting of the system by, turning off the controls of the freezer and the fridge first and then unplugging it or if you can't reach the plug, to throw the breaker off for 5 minutes!
That is a possibility in the order that I described!!!!!

Second I ask, is the freezer packed full to the hilt with packages?
In some refrigerators if the frozen food covers the air vents in the freezer cause they are plied sky high and deep in the freezer it can cause a problem.
The freezer and fridge share the air and have to have the vents or passages free so to allow sharing of the cold air!
Let me know if the measures as I prescribed have an affect.

Waiting for your reply!

SOURCE: freezer not freezing food and fridge not staying cold enough

Check the compressor with a volt meter, if the compressor is getting proper voltage then check the relay. But this sounds like a problem with the compressor

How do you raise the temp for the fridge, food consistently freezes, button raises reading to 45, then drops back to 29 instantly.


A real problem, if your fridge continues to show 29f (-1.6c) then everything will obviously freeze, I know this sounds silly but you are trying to turn the temp up on the food compartment & not the freezer? Just a thought. If not please call the service centre @ http://www.dacor.com

Model WBM412 - Freezer works but fridge does not cool at all.


Its due to freezing behind the freezer coil by which freezer fan gets logged to function. Defrost the refrigerator and then run. Keep freezer temp between -14*F and 8*F and fridge temp between 36*F and 46* F. And also check defrost cycling is properly working.

Thanks, helpful?

My fridge keeps freezing my food


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Refigerator is freezing food


Hi, this problem is going to be with the running thermostat. It has gone bad and stays open which in turn will keep the compressor running continually. It can normally be located in the control panel inside the fridge. Locate the thermostat and replace it. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!

Temp inside fridge is 46degrees. Besides


46 degrees is still below normal room temperature so it seems that the unit is cooling....you do not mention whether it is 46 degrees in both the freezer and the food compartments.....if the freezer is still cold...say below freezing or near zero but it is hot (46) in the other part of the refrigerator then there are probably 2 possibilities:
1. The small fan inside the freezer may be stuck and not spinning...they seem to go bad or at least stop spinning regularly on many freezer compartments. For most designs the fan must be running to circulate the cold air inside the freezer and also send some of the cold air over to the normal food compartment. When these fans shaft get stuck they will often emit a high pitched noise if they are able to turn at all. Of course if not turning t all then there is no sound. Determine if the fan is working....if not you will probably need to replace it and problem fixed. If the fan is working then look at the design of the plastic leavers etc inside the unit that control baffles between the freezer and food compartments. It may be a simple matter of sliding one of these controls to make it colder where the food is stored. some of them also have an electronic control for this so look for that knob and turn it to colder...not the actual refrigerator thermostat but one that controls what they call "balance" between the freezer and food areas.

Ge fridge GSS25LFGww, fridge part freezing food


Hi, Change the controls back to normal settings. Make sure the freezer is getting 0 to 5 above. If the freezer is getting cold enough, try and turn the cold control to 1 and see if the refrigerator shuts off. It sounds like the cold control in not working properly and will need to be replaced. NOTE: The freezer temp has to be right temp or the fresh food side will not work proper.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Our model is MCBR 415S. The top freezer acts as


You most likely have a bad thermostat control or a bad defrost timer.
Locate the defrost timer, probably inside the temp control panel.Defrost cycles should last 30 minutes then resume freezing.
Manually turn the timer control a 1/4 turn and see if it starts.
If so, replace the defrost control.

It could also be a bad temp control.
If the timer adjustment does not start the fridge. Tap the temp control. It may have stuck contacts.

Adjust the temperature control for the freezer to a normal setting. Fast freeze is only for when new products are put in that need to be frozen. This locks the system into a continuous run mode and could be responsible for the freezing condition in the refrigerator section. Check the temperatures with a thermometer as the sensor for the freezer temperature could be bad causing the light to come on.

Food is freezing


usually there is an adjustment at the back for the difference between the fridge and freezer compartment. Often is just a vane that blocks freezer air, too much air would freeze the food. Normally you set the fridge thermostat for a normal food temp, then adjust the air to keep the food warmer than the freezer.
