Check the damper between the fridge and freezer. It may be broken or frozen open. If this happens and you have a water reservoir in the fridge then it could freeze and crack - leak and then flood your house... Shut off the water supply until you get the problem fixed.

SOURCE: Too cold in bottom section

Had the same problem and referred to another post regarding ice build up around the evaporator coils in the freezer unit. I had no ice build up but flat foil guard had dropped down across the freezer outlet which caused more cold air to be forced up into the lower section of the fridge. This caused the freezing of the vegetables.
Follow barkbugs steps first www.fixya.com/support/t970724-fisher_paykel_fridge_freezer and see if that is the problem.
Also while starting to remove items from the freezer check to see if something has moved back and is blocking the air vent. Even a packet of food may cause enough blockage. A slicker pad was also part of our problem.

What is the ideal setting for fridge on Bosch KGN34VW20G


Hello John;

My name is Peter. I am a retired Sears service technician. The freezer temperature should be between -2 & + 2 degrees F. The fresh food section should be between 35-40 degree F.
Pick up a inexpensive temperature gauge with a steel shank. Place the temperature gauge in the freezer center. Do not make contact with any food product. Allow 20 minutes and read the gauge. Be quick the temperature on the gauge will drop quickly when you remove. Adjust the temperature control knob according until you reach the desired setting. Repeat this process as necessary. Do the same for the fresh food section.
You only have one source of cooling; the evaporator coil and fan in the freezer. The freezer will meet it's temperature setting first before it opens the fresh food section damper.
A balanced system will save on your electrical bills. The compressor will kick in only when demand is met. Your compressor should not be running continuously.

Fridge Ices Up Even on the Warmest Setting (Freezer Working Fine)


Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
If it runs then that cold control is the problem.

Freezer is working fine. Fridge side is not cooling entire side. There is ice behind bottom drawer but top of fridge is not cool.


Hi there Sounds like you could be short of refrigerant but there is a few things you can check before you call the tech out. Firstly you need to ascertain if the defrost cycle is working This is a device that has a dial on it usually located under the fridge Turn the knob and see if it cuts out if it doesn't then the defrost timer is the issue also go down to your local electrical goods supplier and buy your self a digital thermometer which you can check the temperature on the I freezer section Get back to me with a temperature for both upper section and lower section

A COUPLE THINGS U SAY FREEZER IS FINE FRIDGE IS NOT? THE FAN NOISE MAY BE DUE TO ICE BUILD UP DUE TO A DEFECTIVE BAD DEFROST TERMINATOR. WHICH EVENTUALLY WILL BUILD ICE UP IN FREEZER AND FRIDGE? HINDER COLD AIR CIRCULATION. ANOTHER THING TO LOOK AT IS UR FREEZER AND FRIDGE THERMISTORS AND UR COLD CONTROL THERMOSTAT. EVEN UR AIR FLOW DAMPER CONTROL VENT AND KNOB SETTINGS? ARE THEY TO FAR OPEN OR CLOSED? ARE U ABLE TO HEAR THE FAN AND COMPRESSOR RUNNING? ANY CLICKING SOUNDS?

Refrigerator 795 69292.901 built 8/09 refrigerator is very cold. temperature adjustment does not seem to work. All of the five circles to indicate temperature look alike. None is lit up or is marked,


Hello,

Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for.


Hope this will help in solving the fault.....

Blinking temperature control


You need to check the limit thermostat for the defrost in the back of the refrig section. I replace it with a standard bi-metal type from a Frigidaire to keep the problem from reoccuring.

Frozen Fridge


the temperature controlis most likely bad since you cant control it. the control is the knob you turn to set the temp with. you should be able to replace it yourself fairly easily.
