There may be vent levers you can close off the vents from the freezer with OR put a small bit of tape over some of the lovers.

SOURCE: Frigidaire side by side - fridge side temp too low

It sounds as though your thermostat is not cycling your compressor off causing it to run until the point of freezing. If you sit and listen, you will hear it hum. If it never stops humming, 9 times out of 10, the power outage shorted your thermostat.

SOURCE: freezer not freezing food and fridge not staying cold enough

Check the compressor with a volt meter, if the compressor is getting proper voltage then check the relay. But this sounds like a problem with the compressor

SOURCE: thetford caravan fridge freezes all food in fridge

Thats a Norcold compact fridge. The most likley problem would be the thermister. Need to do an ohms reading. From inside of the fridge remone the thermister from the fins and unplug the wires. With a VOM set it on Ohms, touch the wires with the probes/ does not matter which probe to wire/ hold the bulb end of the thermister between your fingers, your reading should stat at about 7000 Ohms. Stick the bulb end of the thermister in a glass of ice water, reading should start climbing and go to about 22000 Ohms. If this happens the thermister is good and you need to look elsewhere. If it does not test out you need to replace the thermister. The thermister is a thermostat that controls the heat source that makes the fridge cool. If the thermister reads good you may want to get the circuit board tested.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: ge fridge GSS25LFGww, fridge part freezing food

Hi, Change the controls back to normal settings. Make sure the freezer is getting 0 to 5 above. If the freezer is getting cold enough, try and turn the cold control to 1 and see if the refrigerator shuts off. It sounds like the cold control in not working properly and will need to be replaced. NOTE: The freezer temp has to be right temp or the fresh food side will not work proper.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Amana #af12538aeb freezing food in crisper drawers


All refrigerators get their cooling from the freezer section. I had the same problem on my GE side-by-side. Likely the issue is the damper assembly that contains the mechanism (door) that open and closes an air channel between the two sides and provides chilled air throughout the refrigerated side. That little door often breaks over time thus allowing only freezing temperature air to circulate and not be moderated.

The fix is to get a new damper assembly...shop around for the best price. GE wanted $150 for the part with other part suppliers charging only $85. There's a bunch of great Utubes to show you how to replace the assembly. Needed only a screwdriver and about 30 min to get it working like new again. Real easy for anyone to DIY.

Hope this helps.

Amana fridge (mod #sxd22s2) is freezing foods on bottom level- dial turned to lowest setting & temp. is 28 to 32 degs.at bottom of fridge.


seeing that 32 is freezing point of water,its not suprising that food is freezing.it should be 38f or +3c.when was the last time you did a FULL defrost(NO HAIRDRYERS PLEASE).ALSO CHECK DOOR SEALS ARE TIGHT ALL ROUND.

Refrigerator freezing food.


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Amana Model #TX20NBW FREEZES food in the fridge AND leaks water


Sounds as if the thermostat setting is too high.
Not a good idea to pour warm water into the fridge while its going, but then again.Most drain tubes exit over the compressor into a container sitting atop it. But I've since learned there are now fridges that don't have compressors now? You should also check the door seals, you can do this with a sheet/piece of newspaper
inserted between the door and fridge, go around both doors, you'll soon know if the seals need replacing.
