This box is the evaporator which provide cooling for the whole fridge. They will only freeze things solid that are easy to freeze. Don't count on it being like the normal freezer.

Hi,my bosch f/f is freezing in the veg box and has a lot of ice under the last box in the freezer comp.What is the problem please?

In the back of your fridge you should see a hosepipe connected from the freezer's defrost water drain to the evaporating tray usually located on top of the compressor. The drain is blocked, hence you get ice on the bottom of freezer. The easiest way to clean it is to pull the hose pipe off the fridge outlet and clean the drain upwards with a piece of soft wire or electric cord or something similar. On my fridge (Bosch) I found the drain clogged with a kind of jelly like stuff. The other way to the drain is by removing back panel inside the freezer compartment but be careful, I sort of ripped mine off and broke plastic plugs on which it was fixed. Make sure you know what you doing.
Cheers Karel

Top of freezer not freezing, bottom of fridge is?

Could be the evaporator fan motor is not working. This is what circulates the air from the freezer to the refrigerator section.

I have a Roper RT21LMXKQ00 Freezer wont freeze

The problem is a defrost problem. The freezer coil has frost on it and thus restricts the cold air from flowing. This affects the refrigerator as it gets its cold air from the freezer. The ice will not make if the temperature is above 12*F and this also is why ice cream is like mush.

BEKO Frost free freezer not as cold as it should be!

Sorry I don't have a solution for you, however would like to know if you found out what was wrong. I have an identical problem with my Beko fridge/freezer. It's only 14 months old and the freezer just wont freeze. I've turn it off for 24 hour and let it defrost completely (even had the panel off to make sure there was no ice left). I've turned it back on again and it still wont freeze. Everything seems ok, ie fan blowing, motor running etc. I really am beginning to regret buying Beko. thanks

GE Refrigerator cooling system problem

My guess is that you need more refrigerant gas. It may also have a problem with the auto defrost system for the freezer. You have a block of ice in the evaporator instead of clear fins for the air to pass through. Make sure the door is correctly closed and that the magnetic door gaskets are in good condition. Once those are fixed you can turn the thermostat to make the fridge a bit warmer. Another possibility is that the circulation fan in the fridge has failed. Cold air falls to the bottom which is why your veg is freezing. You can't work on refrigeration gas yourself anyway, so call an engineer. Correct diagnosis of the fault will be cheaper.
