Q. How can I keep produce from freezing in my refrigerator?






More Articles in This Series

Jason West, the marketing manager for refrigeration at General Electric. "Nobody really knows what the temperature of B is, or what the temperature of No. 5 is."One solution is a refrigerator thermometer. Oxo makes a handsome one with a round dial attached to a suction cup that can be installed easily on either interior side wall ($12.99 atoxo.com). Taylor makes a rectangular digital one that is installed the same way ($12.47 atamazon.com).

Once you have the thermometer, "put it in overnight and check it immediately in the morning, the first time you open the fridge," Ms. Reek said, because the temperature varies during the day as the door opens and closes.

The problem might be where you're storing fruits and vegetables, which are sensitive to cold air. Leafy vegetables are especially prone to freezing, Ms. Reek said, because of their high water content.

Although some newer refrigerators have separate cooling mechanisms for the main body and the freezer, most refrigerators cool by funneling air from the freezer into an opening near the top rear of the main compartment.

Fruits and vegetables should be kept away from this outlet, Ms. Reek said, or else "you're going to be blowing that very cold air right on the produce."

Both she and Mr. West recommended keeping produce in the crisper drawer, away from the circulating air.

"You don't want the moisture to transpire out of the product and make it limp," which can happen with produce on a shelf, Ms. Reek said.

If the crisper is full and some produce has to sit on a shelf, it's better to keep it at the front of the refrigerator, because cold air falls down along the back wall. Along with the area directly beneath the outlet, Mr. West said, "the back and bottom of the refrigerator tend to be the coldest spots."

Shirley O. Corriher, a biochemist and cookbook writer, suggests shaking off all the surface moisture from produce and sealing it in heavy zip-top freezer bags before putting it in the crisper drawer or on a shelf.

"Oxygen is a major villain, so to speak, in the deterioration of fruits and vegetables," said Mrs. Corriher, the author of "BakeWise: The Hows and Whys of Successful Baking" (Scribner, 2008) and "CookWise: The Secrets of Cooking Revealed" (William Morrow Cookbooks, 1997).

Lettuce leaves, in particular, benefit from being sealed in plastic, she said, and you should roll the bag "until you squeeze all the air out. That lettuce will keep for three weeks. It's just amazing."

Still, Ms. Reek said, "the objective of food is to eat it."

"If it's fresher, it's going to have higher vitamin content and be healthier for you," she said. "So it's really better not to plan to store food for ever and ever."

Water dispenser frozen?


You have a resevoir inside the fridge compartment that needs to be defrosted. It is frozen.

It is usually located behind the crisper drawers.

It is a small plastic tank that is white about 6 inches or so in length and bolted on to the wall behind the crispers.

A hair dryer usually does the trick in about 10 mins.

Whirlpool gold refrigerator freezes up, what can I do?


Hello Trina;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Sorry I am not there to help you.

Ok, I have several Questions:

1.) I think you have a bad bi-Metl. On your cooling (Evaporator) Coil. This $20.00 component controls your unit temperature.

2.) You have a air vent from your freezer to your fresh food section. Put your hand in front of the vent. Do you feel cool wet air? Do you feel any air?

3.) Remove the filters. You do not need filters to run.

4.) You can shut down your unit for 24 hours. It will work for about a day, but this will not solve your problem.

I do not know what model number you have, so I can not be exact on how to fix your problem.

Call me @ 443-306-1362.

Can I take the freezer door apart and wrap the water line with more insolation


No, you can't. The line goes into the mold of the machine with no access there.You have either an air leak in the dispenser area, around the ice shoot possibly, or the resevoir, which is located on the refrigerator side in the lower area behind the drawers is freezing, which is most likely the case. There are vents on the lower section for the crisper drawers. If you take out the drawers you'll find a roll of 1/4 " tubing which they call a resevoir that cools the water down. This is probably frozen,and you can insulate this, but I would raise the temperature in the fridge side or close the vents to the crisper area.

The lettuce freezes even when we dial the control to 45 degrees. Please help


#1 Does your lettuce freeze in the crisper drawer? If so this would be your thermistor located behind the temperature control knob. At the very top inside the top cover is where it is located. It looks like a device with a wire covered in plastic that reads your temperature and allows your refrigerator to cool evenly. If your lettuce is not in the crisper drawer than this can also freeze your vegetables and dry them out. I hope I helped you.

The temperature for the top portion is reading 38 degrees, however we often find vegetables partially frozen in the produce drawer. The icemaker continues to function but the filtered water spigot will not...


turn your unit up to 40 degrees, by the time the upper portion hits 38 degrees the bottom is close to 6 degrees colder than the upper, by physics cold air is heavier and falls, plus w/o a fan down there it will freeze quicker,just like a cold night outside with no wind to speak of,try this once,also you may want to shuffle the food around the refrig box and try different levels, iI know that the veggies belong in the lower crisper drawer usually though

Refrigerator crisper drawers are freezing veggies


Shut the air flow into the crispers if you can. If not, turn the refrigerator temperature warmer by just a few degrees. The air into the fridge from the freezer is channeled into the crispers.

Pull out your WIDE-N-FRESH Deli Drawer at the bottom, and when the lid automatically raises look to the right: you'll find a sliding temperature controller that most likely is all the way up. Slide it down towards the bottom and this will cut back on the cool. Worked for ours!
