Check in the freezer section for a knob to control the freezer. Turn this knob back to center and return refrigerator setting to 5. What is happening is the freezer control is just a baffle that divides the air flow into the fresh food and freezer section. If the freezer knob is turn to 1 or cold it is sending all the cold air into the refrigerator, then when you turn down the actual cold control, the system isn't allowed to run long enough to allow the freezer to stay frozen.

Dorm refrigerator freezes everything


Lower the freezer letter by one letter, let set 24 hours for temp to stabilize, keep lowering until right temp/environment is achieved.

The temperature of refrigerators should not be allowed to exceed 41 degrees F as this will contribute to the growth of bacteria in the food, and cause different health problems, including food poisoning if consumed.
A temperature below 34 degrees F in the refrigerator may cause the food to freeze, and you will have to defrost it before using it. If this happens to vegetables and fruits they will go limp and will be rendered inedible.
At any time when you change the temperature, give it a minimum of 24 hours to take complete effect.
The external temperatures also influence the internal refrigerator temperature. This means, you will have to set your refrigerator lower in summer, and higher in winter, especially if you live in extreme climatic conditions. On the other hand, if the climate in your zone is moderate, your refrigerator temperature will be less affected by external temperatures.
In order to check and ensure the internal temperature of the refrigerator, you may place a thermometer kept in a glass of water in the fridge. The exact temperature will be available to you anywhere within 5-8 hours.
For your refrigerator to cool effectively, it is essential that your air vents are functioning well. Do not place any items before it, and clean it on a regular basis for maximum effect.

Tip

I just bought a thermometer to check the temps.


when you get a 5 dollar thermometer to see if your refrigerator is working right, dont count on it being accurate.
the first thing to do is to set both controls to the mid point. then allow it to sit with the doors closed for 24 hours.
after that, check the food temps, not what the thermometer is reading. if the food is freezing, ie; vegetables or fruit, set the refrigerator warmer.
if the freezer items ie; ice cream, is too warm, then set the refrigerator control colder.
after either change, allow the unit to reach that change for 24 hours.
the main thing to remember is the refr control affects the overall temperature. and the freezer control just affects where the air moves to, keep it in the middle!!
always remember to keep the coils under the unit clean and dust free.

As for freezer, lower the letter and allow 24 hours for temp to adjust. Lower again and wait, until desired temp achieved.

Do the same thing for refrigerator. If freezing not working most efficiently, this can and usually does affect the refrigerator.

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.

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.

I have a GE side by side refrigurator model Gss201epc ww serial Tf220054 and am having a problem with stuff freezing in the crisper, I do not see any type of adjustment any ideas here? Thanks


initially, set the refrigerator compartment control at 5 and the freezer control at 5 and allow 12 hours for the temperature to stabilize.
Several adjustments may be required. Adjust the controls one increment at a time, and allow 12 hours after each adjustment for the refrigerator to reach the temperature you set.

Adjustable Humidity Crispers and Snack Pan (on some models)
HIGH LOW
HIGH LOW
Normal
Coldest
Slide the control all the way to the High setting to provide high humidity recommended for most vegetables.
Convertible Meat Pan (on some models)
The convertible meat pan has its own cold air duct to allow a stream of cold air from the freezer compartment to flow around the pan.
The variable temperature control regulates the air flow from the freezer compartment.
Slide the control all the way to the Low setting to provide lower humidity levels recommended for most fruits.

Hello, This problem is going to be the cold control, this can be located in the control panel inside the fridge. This part is also called the thermostat. What is happening here is it has opened and the freezer is getting to cold which is making the fridge too cold. This is why the food in your fridge is freezing. You should replace the cold control and you will be all set. Mike
