Re: refridgerator problem

Low refrigerant level is a common cause to this problem. Try a lower setting and if that doesn't work, you'll have to call the repairman :( Best regards, Denis

Re: refridgerator problem

The reason it is freezing up is Fridigaire {the people that built this model} had a problem with the damper and control assembly. They had this problem at least 5 years ago so depending on how old your unit is this is fixed replacing the whole assembly which has control, stats, damper and wiring in it. Hope this helps

Side by Side ModelsIf foods, such as fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator are freezing, it can be caused by several things. First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If food in the bottom of the refrigerator is freezing, this could be caused by a refrigerator not having enough food to absorb the cold air.
  • If food in the door is freezing, move the door bins up or down so they are one notch away from freezer vents (Side by Side models only).
  • The fresh food control should be at the normal setting of 5.
Freezer on Top Models
First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenehit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Since the cold air coming into the fresh food section originates in the freezer above, the rear of the top shelf will be the coldest spot in the fresh food area. Avoid placing delicate items that freeze easily on the back half of this shelf.
  • If food is freezing in the produce (fruits and vegetables) or meat pan, it may be that the temperature controls are not set high enough. Since cold air naturally falls, the pans can get too cold if the refrigerator is not running long enough to maintain good air circulation. Adjust both controls up one notch.

Samsung fridge freezes milk and food

I would say it probably needs defrosted. Check for thick ice buildup, more then 1 inch. Remove gently as possible. May just need turned down a bit. Adjustment is inside refridgerator on side or above top shelf. Best of luck. Hope this has helped!

We just purchased this model, and the items in our refridgerator keep freezing, including the milk in the door. We have turned down the setting to 2 and it keeps occuring, is this common? Mostly things...

I've actually ran inti this problem alot. its just a design flaw. the objects that are freezing are close to the direct flow of cold air coming from the freezer into the fresh food compartment. adjusting the temperature will result in the same condition. The only thing you can do is rearrange products closest to the air duct. You may even gave to rearrange the shelves. Just ran into this same problem yesterday when i was dispatched to a customers home. Its just a stupid flaw in the design of the fridge.

Food is freezing on our top refrigerator shelves

well i'm not exactly sure what fridge you have but that is usually caused by the what they call a baffle...which is a flap that opens and closes to let the cold air from the freezer to the fresh food side. It sounds as if the baffle is stuck open or moving way too slowly and thus freezing your fresh food. You can find a part number and price at all you need is your model number. Good luck!!

All food on top shelf of refrigeratr is freezing

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. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Refridgerator problem

Not sure about your model, but most of these style side by side refridgerators use the cold air from the freezer to cool the refridgerator. Sounds like your "flapper" valve is broken. At the top left in the refridgerator there should be plastic shroud. Remove it and your flapper valve should be under it. You will most likely find the flap broken off of it. You may have success using epoxy to glue it or you may have to replace the valve assembly.
Good luck.

Refridgerator side of my refridgerator keeps freezing my food

The problem may be low gas or it may be the thermostat is set too low.  First, look at the possibility that you may have the food partly blocking an air channel which is where the very cold air is coming from..  Fridge side should read about 40 F after the door is closed for about an hour.  If colder, adjust.
