Hello, This problem is going to be the cold control/thermostat, this part can be located in the control console inside the fridge bhind the freezer temp control knob (can also be found sometimes in the freezer depending on type/model) The reason your food in the fridge is freezing is because the thermostat controling the freezer temp is not shutting down and the air being blown into the fridge is too cold. Replace this cold control/thermostat and you should be fixed. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again and give me some time to respond. Good luck! Mike

Whirlpool refrigerator is freezing foods . need to reset temperature to default settings. how do I do it


If the temperature control is a knob turn it to a warmer number. If it's a digital control try a warmer setting. It's possible the digital control board has failed.

Why is the refrigerator side is freezing food


First some fridge 101, the refrigerator/freezer models cool by directly refrigerating the freezer section and the refrigerator section is cooled when "some" of the cold air from the freezer is directed over to the refrigerator side (typically by a fan) to keep food fresh and not frozen a temperature controlling damper opens and closes to regulate the temperature of the fridge by introducing more or below freezing air into the cabinet. In older models where the freezer was on top the air simply "gravity" drained into the refrigerator cabinet, if the food was too cold you turned the fridge knob up and less air sank from the freezer to the fridge, simple but effective.

When you adjust the temperature level it controls the freezer temperature and this turns the compressor on and off to keep the food frozen. There is typically a knob or lever and some even have electric dampers that open and close to direct more or less air from the freezer and direct it to the refrigerator cabinet based on your temperature requirements.


Now that you know how it works there are a couple things to check. If the condenser coil is plugged with dust the internal system pressure will rise and in some cases make the fridge an over achiever and can chill too much so check/clean the condenser coil. Check the freezer temperature control and turn in up, also make sure the fridge temperature control setting is not set too cold.

Finally as the temperature changes around the refrigerator it will have an effect on the inside of the fridge too so expect to turn it up and down as the environment changes, down in the summer and up in the winter.

Hope the novel helps to resolve your issues.

Temperature setting True tssu-60-16


if you tried to adjust the temperature and the cooler continues to freeze the food then replace the thermostat attached to the control knob. Thermostats fail in different ways

I bought a second hand F&P Fridge Mod N249T about 7 years old..and it keeps feezing all of our food!!! The teperature control shows 1-7 seven, we tried setting it to 1 which we thought would be the...


I was not able to find a manual for your model; perhaps the company has not posted going back this far. Your model seems to be available on the resale market in Australia. If your model is not from Australia, vist the following site http://www.fisherpaykel.com.au/customercare/userguide/ and in the bottom of the webpage select the country the refrigerator was purchased. verify your model number and then go to Customer Care > Find A User Guide. Use the search fields to find your User Guide; if you leave the model number blank and select rerfigertaor you wil get a selection of all the available User Guides for refrigerators.

The Fisher and Paykel site seemed to only has one User Guide for all their refrigeration model but it does not list as applicable for the N249T. See here: http://www.fisherpaykel.com//admin/pdfs//pdf_usecares/837186-Ref_Freezer-UG_NZ-AU-UK-PAC.pdf

However on page 18 it does describe the Temperature Control:

1 is for the warmest setting

7 is for the coldest setting

The Problem Solving Section on page 29 advises that when food is freezing in the refrigerator the temperature setting is not correct or food is placed directly in front of air outlets.

If the unit is not shutting off when the desired temperature is reached there may be a problem with the thermostat.

Hope this is of some assistance.

When The Temperature Setting Is On 1 The Food In The Freezer Dosent Stay Completely Frozen But When i move it up to setting 2 it freezes things in the fridge...and theres water leaking out the back


Do you just adjust the fresh food side or do you adjust the freezer setting too? Post the model # . does the unit have knobs or buttons for setting temp? Does food freeze in one particular part of the fresh food side or evenly throughout?

Hotpoint fridge - temperature problem


Somewhere there's another knob that controls the position of a damper that balances cold between the freezer and the refrigerator. Despite where the knob is, the thermostat is probably controlling the freezer temp. The damper controls how much cold from the freezer gets to the refrigerator.

You need to adjust that knob to divert less cold air into the refrigerator section.

It's also possible the damper has gotten stuck and can't be moved, in which case you may need a repair tech.

I can not change temperature to more than 41f. Lower temperatures are OK


Temperature is perhaps the most critical means of control in the prevention of foodborne illness. Harmful (disease-causing) microorganisms grow within a temperature range of 41 F to 140 F (referred to as the "Temperature Danger Zone"). Many foods, especially raw animal products, naturally contain harmful microorganisms. Keeping foods out of the Temperature Danger Zone prevents disease-causing microorganisms from growing in foods. Proper cooking and reheating of food is important because heat destroys disease-causing microorganisms that may be present. Ensuring proper heating and storage temperatures is essential for assuring safe food in retail operations. Temperature guidelines differ depending on the type of food and method of heating method.

Freezing
Most pathogenic microorganisms will not grow below 41 F, or their growth will be very slow. However, many spoilage microorganisms (which cause foods to taste and smell bad) can grow at temperatures well below 41 F. Most foods that are frozen in food retail are done to improve quality and increase the shelf- life of the product. Most foods will freeze at about 28-30 F. To ensure safe freezer temperatures, be sure that your freezer is maintained at least 28-30 F or below (foods should be frozen solid). Ideally, foods should be frozen at 0 F or below to maintain quality.


It seems that your Refrigrator's higgest point is set to 41 F

Ffa70 hotpoint fridge freezer


Adjust the temperature control for the freezer to a normal setting. Fast freeze is only for when new products are put in that need to be frozen. This locks the system into a continuous run mode and could be responsible for the freezing condition in the refrigerator section. Check the temperatures with a thermometer as the sensor for the freezer temperature could be bad causing the light to come on.
