My rv ref is freezing top and bottom please help


hello,My fridge is freezing things: 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.
please kindly rate the solution if it's helpful.

take care.

KEEPS FREEZING FOOD


This sounds like a thrmostat problem as if it is freezing then all the other components are functioning as they should. This is a common problem and is a relatively cheap and easy repair.

Food freezing in refrigerator and water dripping


The problem with the water is that the drain tube is plugged. The easiest way to fix this and to save money is to unplugg the refrigerator and leave the doors open all day. This will thaw out the drain tube without a service technician coming out. That will fix that problem. With it freezing the food on the where its not supposed, This may be a bad cold control. But try unplugging the unit for a day with the doors open and this may fix both problems. (i know it will fix the water issue)

Yes the refrigerator knob is just a damper between the freezer and the refrigerator. All the heat removal is done in the freezer section. it just dumps air through to the refrigerator. So drop the thermostat down to about 5 and try that. If food is still freezing
drop the thermostat a little more. If food continues to freeze then your thermostat could be bad. Not sensing temp properly and allowing the refrigeration system to run to long.
Hope this helps

Items sometimes freeze on refrigerator side of unit - model GSS25LGMA


It is most likely a bad damper motor.  This is where the cool air comes out into the fridge section.  On this model it is a fairly common problem and comes a whole assembly.  The part # is WR49X10091 and will cost anywhere from $100 to $122.  Knowing this model I would bet this is your problem.  If the damper is bad and stuck open cold air will just keep blowing in.  It is suppose to open and close based on the temp setting.  Let me know if you have any other questions.
