I have the same problem with my whirlpool MODEL ET17JMXJWOO. The freezer works fine but it fills up the air vent from the freezer to the fridge with ice. I did the same thing - turned off the whole thing, defrosted it. It worked for a week, then ice filled it up again. How much does it cost to repair this problem? the fridge is about 8 years old and otherwise is in great condition. Is it worth it to buy a new fridge?

I got the same problem. For some reason in the freezer part on the back wall there is a condensor and it keeps on getting all iced up and then there is not enough air pressure for the fan to circulate cold air to you fridge part. I took mine all apart used a hair dryer to thaw out everything which took out about 1 gallon of water from the hose in the bottom back of fridge. It fixed the problem for about 4 days and then froze up again, There must be some type of tempature sensor or automatic defroster not working like it shoud.Does anybody know? Help me too?

My double door galaxy (5 year old or so) seems to be at the right temperatures but the control reads 56 degrees for the freezer and fridge


Get a thermometer for both fridge and freezer to ensure temps are correct. Freezer should be around 0F and fridge around 37-38. If temps are correct but display is reading that much differently, control is most likely bad.

The self defrost mechanism is not working. The evaporator is getting blocked with ice, an insulator, and that affects freezer as well as refrig temps. When you unplug unit the ice melts and it will work till the ice block returns.

Why does the temperature on my ge fridge keep changing to warmer temp?


Make sure the condenser is clean and clear, and all fans are working as they should. Also check the freezer section for signs of ice build up. A good defrost and a cleanup usually does the trick!
If it's in direct sunlight, try to limit the heat with a blind.

when temperture is droping its a good indication it fuctioning properlt but when the refrigerator doesent go down to the desired temt of 37 you may have to clean the coils in back of the refrigerator this can be done easily as it worked for me you can use a aircompresor to blow any heavy dust the unit has acummilated or you can use a soft brisle brush even a tooth brush is good in hard to reach areas.

My vegetables keep freezing in the fridge, how do i get the fridge at the right temp?


Remove the vegetable/ produce/ meat draws and shelving that support them. Look along the rear wall or the left inside wall for vents that are feeding or directing cold air to the draws. First try to shut or close these vents down. Or you can tape over them to restrict the flow . The normal refrig temp is between 37 to 40 deg.

How to change the temp in a frigidaire galaxy refrigerator


Units will vary give or take a few degrees from the control panel display. Keep in mind once you change the temperature it will take up to 10-12 hours to stabilize and reach that temperature. If the unit is not cool, even at the bottom of the refrigeration portion (where the coolest air will be found) then contact a professional to diagnose the control pane and board.

Your ice box uses thermistors to judge temp. The control board measures the resistances changes in these thermistors and acts accordingly. This video shows how to check:

Hotpoint fridge freezer freezer ok but fridge not working temp is always 21 degrees tried to set to 4 degrees but just keeps going to 21 freezer is fine -22 degrees


Merv -

Most manufacturer's fridges are designed for 34 degrees F in the fresh food compartment and 0 degrees F in the freezer compartment. Setting the fresh food compartment to a value lower than 32 degrees will freeze any moisture in foods, fruits and vegetables and freeze water in juices and other beverages resulting in broken containers, exploding cans, etc.

What you need is another freezer. Trying to convert a refrigerator into a freezer is going to be very difficult - especially without ruining it.

Good luck!
