Freezer not freezing food

I came home today to liquid all over my floor from under the fridge and all my meat and popsicles are melted. Plus it makes a buzzing noise ever 5 minutes or so that lasts for about 10 seconds. Please let me know if it's time to get a new one.
thanks!

Why Select a Vacuum Food Sealer?


You may have heard a lot about food sealers but you may not know them very well. Food sealer can provide you with an easy way to seal your food by removing air from the packages so that they will not get bad when you want to eat it. We all have experienced that we put food in the refrigerators and plan to eat it later, but later never comes. It's really a huge waste not only of food, but also of money. The food sealers work to prevent that waste by keeping your food fresh.

With a food sealer, you can buy fresh food as well as vegetables and take them home. Food sealers make it possible for you to buy food in bulk since you can seal and freeze it to avoid waste. It will remain fresh after a long time compared with the unsealed one. By removing air from the packages, you can take all of the air out of the packages. If you have air in them or put them in the refrigerators, you will allow germs to get into your food, which will make it become unsafe. If you do not eat it within a "safe time" and it's not well protected from the air in your fridges, you will have various odors from other food inside your fridges that can mess up the flavor. Your food may become discolored. This is because the freezers' pulling moisture out of the meat and vegetables due to your container allowing air into your food. Your frozen food will dry in the end. Although it's still safe to eat, it won't taste as good as it originally is. Food sealers are systems that seal food in air-tight vacuum packed systems like pouches and used for foods that need to be stored for long periods of time.

Anyway, food sealers can help reduce oxygen, limiting bacterial growth that would otherwise cause vegetables, meats and liquids to spoil. Sealing food guards against dehydration and freezer burn, and also saves on storage space because of the reduced size of the packaging. As an added perk, you can use the vacuum sealer to marinate meat or combine foods for ready-made meals. http://www.vacuumsealermanufacturer.com/

What causes food to freeze in the bottom of the refrigerator & meat & cheese tray


See if there is a temperature setting on the side of the drawer. Mine has a small lever that opens a hole to the freezer to keep that drawer colder. If it's opened too far the food will freeze.

The food in the vegtable and meat section are becoming frozen. How come? The refridgerator is set at 37.


Hi,
Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for the air deflector
As you know, the deflector directs the freezer air toward the front of the frig and the rear of the cold control

Not getting cold, freezer freezes food but refrigerator cool..


The fridge gets it cold air from the freezer. There is like an air tunnel that goes from the freezer (usually in the back) to your fridge to provide cold air.

What probably happened it the tunnel is blocked with ice or another liquid. The easiest thing to do is unplug the fridge for 24 hour so the ice can melt.

Water dripping from freezer into refrigerator area and frozen water in freezer


The defrost cycle is melting ice that will not go down the drain tube in the rear of the freezer. This can be a clogged tube due to debris, organic growths or ice blocking flow. What doesn't end up dripping into the fridge ends up freezing in the freezer compartment. Make sure the fridge is level or tilted back slightly.

Unplug the fridge from power. Remove the contents of the freezer and remove the ice maker, back wall plate and floor plate in the freezer section. Remove ice build up on the floor and tray in the freezer by thawing and soaking up water. Flush hot water (use a turkey baster to get at it) at the opening of the drain hose that is connected to the tray to thaw any ice.. once flowing to the evapraor tray under the fridge, mix up 1/2 oz of bleach and 4 oz of water and pour down the tube to kill any bacteria.

Reassemble and restock the freezer. Monitor the temperature of the fresh food (34 deg) and freezer (0 deg) compartments. If you notice the temperatures start to climb, there may be a problem with the defrost timer, terminator, etc. and may require a pro's help.

Good luck!

Your problem could be caused by a clogged drainage tube. even though you may have removed the ice it may still have a clog. my suggestion would be to take all of the contents out of your fridge and let it sit unplugged for atleast 24-48 hours with the doors open this will eliminate any left over ice that may be clogging your drain tube. if this dosent help then you may have a defrost heater problem, or possibly a defrost termination switch problem. as for the smell i know that vinegar works well for getting rid of odor. ther eis also a product you can purchase called fridge aid, it is a charcoal based air purifier and should work well.

This is a drawback of most mini-fridges. Start by defrosting everything. Then fill ice cube trays with water and keep lowering the setting until the water freezes. Just go a little lower, no more. Fridge should not freeze food. If the fridge stays closed all the time food will freeze. Also if the freezer element gets ice buildup it must be defrosted. Not automatic like home fridge. Most kids today weren't born when the last fridges that had to be defrosted were in service.
