I tell people to judge the fridge and freezer by using your milk and ice cream everyone knowes how they like their milk and it is usually the first indicator of cooling problems and you want your ice cream firm but not so hard that you have to dig it out with a jack hammer and Etheline is a consideration

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."

I am not well versed on this unknown engine, but here is something to think about. If you look at the appropriate circuit scheme, there must be a part that controls your Maximum RPM. The Limp Mode is suppose to reduce RPM and Diesels do run at lower RPM than gas engines. Often an engine goes into LIMP when it senses overheating. On some engines, cylinders are deactivated and the dead cylinders are turned into cooling pumps.

Puzzling is the Glowplug warning. This can mean you have a dead short in some glowplugs. This easily can explain starting problems, but your engine will heat the glowplugs for probably 2 minutes or less and then they are off for a cold motor. Even restarting the engine when it is hot will not activate the glowplugs. So I can't see the glowplug problem causing a Limp Mode once you are underway.

It could be engineered to work this way though, and you need to refine the info about the Year, Model, and engine size.

I think I would try to change a temperature sensor, and pull the glowplugs out and test them.

Dorm refrigerator freezes everything


Lower the freezer letter by one letter, let set 24 hours for temp to stabilize, keep lowering until right temp/environment is achieved.

The temperature of refrigerators should not be allowed to exceed 41 degrees F as this will contribute to the growth of bacteria in the food, and cause different health problems, including food poisoning if consumed.
A temperature below 34 degrees F in the refrigerator may cause the food to freeze, and you will have to defrost it before using it. If this happens to vegetables and fruits they will go limp and will be rendered inedible.
At any time when you change the temperature, give it a minimum of 24 hours to take complete effect.
The external temperatures also influence the internal refrigerator temperature. This means, you will have to set your refrigerator lower in summer, and higher in winter, especially if you live in extreme climatic conditions. On the other hand, if the climate in your zone is moderate, your refrigerator temperature will be less affected by external temperatures.
In order to check and ensure the internal temperature of the refrigerator, you may place a thermometer kept in a glass of water in the fridge. The exact temperature will be available to you anywhere within 5-8 hours.
For your refrigerator to cool effectively, it is essential that your air vents are functioning well. Do not place any items before it, and clean it on a regular basis for maximum effect.

1 month ago my x type went into limp mode. Mechanic had it for three days and could find nothing wrong. Then today it went into limp mode four times. No warning lights on dash


The only time a vehicle goes into limp mode is when there is ****** problems, so I would take it to the ****** shop for code retrivel and if I am not wrong there might be problem with the Input/Output speed sensors BUT do have it checked first.

Food (vegetables, fruits) on the refrigerater side freezing


Your model has a control damper inside the vent. The damper opens and closes with changes in temperature. It has a pig tail spiral thermostat on the side and if it goes bad the door sticks open or closed. Sometimes it is just frost but you will need to get to it. I will send photos and links in a moment, Thanks Sea Breeze

1996 dodge avenger when cold, the transmission go in limp mode


Is the vehicle's Check Engine Light on? It should briefly light up when you turn the key on (before you start the engine) to show that the light is working correctly. Based on what I've read I believe you should have one or more trouble codes. A place like AutoZone will read the trouble codes for you for free, and you can look them up here - http://www.engine-light-help.com/generic-check-engine-light-codes.html
