Popeyetto, The problem is the adaptive defrost contol unit in the upper right hand of the refrigerator. You will have to remove the fresh food control cover, and undo the screws holding up the housing which is holding the defrost control unit. Follow the instructions in replacing the defrost control its a simple unplug and plug back in with new. Reattach the housing, and the control scale, then control cover. Then go to freezer compartment take out shelves and baskets, remove the interior back wall plate lower portion.To do this you may need a hair dryer to defrost the ice which sometimes holds the back wall plate secure untill it is defrosted. Once it is removed you will see the cooling coils covered in ice build upplace towels down to catch and water as you melt the ice with the blow dryer. once defrosted reassmble and then enjoy your refrig once again.

Frigidare PLHS67EGSB1 IS 6 YEARS OLD Temperatue Fluctuates On freezer side


Good Morning bernie3003 - For this particular model, the control on the door is the brain which controls all the functions of the unit. If the temperature inside the unit is not reading the correct temperature, then there might be a thermistor or wiring issue between the thermistor and the main control board on the door. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the refrigerator to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Refrigerator keeps freezing. Temp stays at about 28 degrees. temp control on door (digital) and no matter how much you turn it up, temp stays below 30. Repair man came out and said seal was bad on...


Most likely one or both of the thermistors are bad. Usually pretty easy to find behind a vented cover about 2" X 1" on the side walls of the refrigerator and the top of freezer (if freezer is on the bottom of the unit)

My refrig is freezing items on the refrig side.


likely a bad temperature control. also, some model GE's have a bad fresh food inlet cover, that fails to cutoff airflow from the freezer.

Food is freezing in the bottom drawer of my Maytag side by side


check to make sure the slide controls for teh bottom drawer is set to vegtables also it is not uncommon for the temps in the bottom drawer of your refrig to drop down to freezing if you have infrequent door openings. you may also try setting the refrig temperature to a warmer setting as well. thx Peyton

Refrigerator is freezing on the produce side


if you get frozen fresh food the air damper is not closing allowing too much freezer air to enter ff section, looks like an electronic controlled wide by side you have, ther should be a tch sheet with a troubleshooting guide behind the kickplate or pasted in an envelope under the front of refrig behind kickplate.

Kenmore Elite refrigator side by side Model # 10655602400


Boomdog, the problem with your fridge is the temperature control board (where you adjust temps at in the fridge section). I serviced one of these just this week for the same problem! It's working fine now. They'll need to bring a control board with them to finish this job. The part number for it is #8201659. Be glad you won't have to fork over the cash to buy it, the retail cost is ~$165.00. Unfortunately, all of my vendors tell me this board is a factory backorder item. Maybe Sears will have it, maybe not. Also, after the repair is complete, please connect your computer controlled appliance up to a quality surge suppression/arrestor device. We highly recommend this one... http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=124911
