Freezer is not working to optimum capability. Meats and frozen foods harden, but ice cream and breads do not. I have the temperature control to almost maximum. Any ideas?

    Refrigerator has been charging for several hours.  Ice cream and baked goods are soft, but other items in freezer are ok.  Have turned up temperature control from 4 to 5.  No change.

Why are frozen bread items and small cups of ice cream thawing in freezer and not other things?


Ice cream requires a min. temp of 28 deg. you're most likely at about 30 or 31.

  1. make sure your air flow vents are free of ice in the freezer.
  2. turn up your temp control
  3. pull out fridge and clean and vac the rear coils and the motor area. make sure to clean the fan blades
this should do it mike

My norfrost freezer c105e runs constantly


first thing to check and clean is the condenser coils and make sure they are clean and have good airflow.
Secondly, if your freezer is in a hot area (like a garage), it will probably run for very long cycle to overcome the heat load'Third, check the food temperature by the following indicators (only true for a deep Freeze):
Ice Cream - Solid as a rock
Meats Same as Ice cream
Bread - Firm and hard
If temperature is good and you insure good air circulation around the condenser coils, do not worry about the running time.

I have a 12 year old sub zero 590 side by side. The freezer is not working well.ice is fine but ice cream is very soft. Meats and others are not so hard either.


Jai,
If the ice is still frozen after any time the temp is below 32. But thats not cold enough as you know. Target temp in such a freezer is between +10 to 0 F inwhich ice cream is good and firm. BTW many restaurants and food pro's set and judge the freezer temp by the firmness of ice cream! A twelve year old Sub Z should not be having such problems and causes could be numerous. Lets talk about what you can do. This is a built in unit correct? Ok, get your step ladder and remove the cover above the doors and look for a dirty coil, a failed fan, or both. If the coil is dirty enough to restrict air flow or fan not blowing this IS a problem! One that will cause such problems and is my bet to whats going on.

Freezer is cold but not keeping icecream frozen.


If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.

Ice cream soft


Ice Cream is the hardest thing to freeze in a fridge /freezer unit , you need a least 0 deg F
to harden ice cream. If the ice cream was satisfactory before the repair and the stat is set to max. it is possible you have an over charger refrigeration circuit.

My ice cream won't stay frozen in my freezer.


Hi: Meat and other frozen foods will be rock solid at 32degrees. Ice cream will be soft it needs 0degrees to be hard. It sounds like your freezer is above 0 degrees. You tried the adjustments. Make sure the coils on the bottom are clean. They will warm a ref if they are dirty. A coil brush from the hardware store or a air compressor (plan on dusting the house when done. Just vaccuuming the front isn't enough. That's an older model but one of the controls affects both the freezer and fresh food. When it's running turn one down; if it turns off the compressor it affects both. The other control is just an air balance, to direct how much air gets to each compartment. I hope this helps, Jeff

We have a Whirlpool gb22dk refrigerator freezer. The bottom freezer keeps meat frozen but will not keep sea food ice cream bread ect frozen. This fridge came with our house which we purchased 2 years ago...


1st.Check the freezer door gasket for any place it maybe torn or not making a 100% seal when you close the door.That would make temperature drop. 2nd.take off bottom kick plate so you can look under the refrigerator.Using a flashlight make sure there is not alot of lint / dust stuck on the coils .If there is remove it carefully and you will see temperature lower. PLEAS RATE THIS!
