Which is colder 1 or 5?

My Avanti's temperature control is numbered 1 -5, and after 5 is MAX.
There is a separate control in the freezer section, but that is another matter.

As a matter of fact, in any refrigerator with a temp control, turning it towards the RIGHT will always result in COLDER.

If you open the door dozens of times an hour, you'd probably want to keep it on MAX.

If not, then MAX setting might begin to freeze some of the items you do not want frozen. If you are a normal user, try setting to 3.

Why is refrig so cold its freezing liquids

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS23KF7AB, is so cold that it is freezing liquids inside the refrigerator area. I also see that you have it set on the warmest setting. First, I suggest setting the controls to the factory setting. Secondly, reset your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When power is restored, leave the setting on the factory setting, and give your refrigerator 24 hours to stabilize at the factory setting. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your refrigerator status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Items freezing in the refrigerator

Due to the ice on the vent ( damper ) , the damper is probably frozen open , so it will not close , causing the refrig section to keep on getting colder . Put your hand over the vent and feel the air being circulated . Use a hair dryer on the vent for a time and ocassionally feel the vent to see if the vent closes stopping the air flow .

The temp setting is on 4 for both the freezer and refrig. Which way do we set the temp controls to warm up the temp? Is the lower setting warm or cold?

Good day,
The higher the number the colder the temp. 1 being the warmest.
It takes 12 to 24 hours to realize a new setting's effect. Go slow.

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.

Lg side by side refridgerator ice maker

you can adjust the control for the freezer side to a colder setting think of the freezer control as a door warmer setting door open farther colder setting door farther closed the fridge control is electric that runs the compresser can turn fridge down to creat more cooling freezer or set freezer to colder setting it is a balancing
act have actually closed freezer control to coldest setting and had items freeze in the fridge side where air from freezer first enters fridge a lower temp in freezer should help ice production

Refrigerator portion not getting real cold, freezer is ok.

I you have set the adjustment (if there is one and should be) on the fridge side to the colder setting, there may be an electrical issue with the control.

If there is not much in the fridge and you set it too cold, items will freeze.
Use a thermometer and make sure you have some items in there, test the temp.

You can just use a bunch of the ice pouches from a cooler to fill it up for this test, then see what it says the temp is, also check the manual you have or can get from the internet. It should tell you optimal temp.

More info on fridge is helpful, i.e. model number, mfgr date and so on.

Items in the back of the refrigerator freeze.

is this something that has just started happening? Most kenmore top freezers have a vent that allows cold air from the freezer into the refrig through a vent located on the back wall in the center of the refrig section. if packages are pushed up under this vent they can freeze. 

If you have widespread freezing in the refrig setion then a temperature control could be the fault. thanks for using fixya. Peyton..
