Hello, Your problem is going to be with the cold control, it is not shutting down which is why the food is freezing, You did not supply a model # so am unable to see if theis has a thermostat or control board, will assume it has a thermostat. Most likely place to find it is where the know for controling the freezer is...usually inside the fridge. Replace this thermostat and you will be good to go...Thanks for using Fixya, if you have any additional questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

Refrigerator side freezes


if the food in the fridge side is freezing it sounds like the damper door isn't closing,the way it works is cold air is produced in the freezer side,the evaporator fan blows the cold air from the freezer to the fridge side and it blows through the damper assy. if the damper door isn't closing youll have sub zero air constantly blowing into the fridge sidethe part number is 5304482075 but it's around 200 dollars.you can go here to sears and look up the parts or call a tech in to check it out

The fresh food compartment on my PLHS267za fridge is freezing. Have tried turning the temp all the way down and it is still freezing. What could the problem be?


damper stuck open by the fresh food thermostat. the unit doesnt know that it is cold enough so the damper stays open letting cold air from the freezer to continue to travle over.

Fridge is freezing everything!


There is a flap that directs the air from freezer to fridge. Sometimes this flap can stick Or the actuator that controls the flap can go out. Same with autodefrost timer which seems to give a lot of people trouble. Thermostat is at the top, uncirculated cold air sinks, food in the bottom of the fridge freezes.

My daughter's mini fridge has a freezer compartment. Her issue is, if she turns it up high enough so the freezer freezes, the fridge compartment also freezes everything; if she turns it down so that the...


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.

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.

Fridge is freezing food on upper shelves


Either damper assembly between fridge and freezer is not working correctly or the thermostat is bad

Food stays frozen regardless of temperature setting


It is possible it has a bad thermostat but most likely cause would be a bad damper motor.  It is the vent inside the fridge that opens and closes, based on temp. setting, to allow cold air from the freezer into the fridge section.
