Adora DSS25KGRAWW fresh food side freezing even when set to the warmest setting

Posted by on

  • marku606 Apr 29, 2010

    Even on the warmest setting the fan blows out the outlet on the fresh food side.



    How do I open this part (460) for inspection?

  • marku606 Apr 29, 2010

    The door is broken off at the servo. I need to order the whole assembly (460) I assume.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages. Part 460 on this diagram is your damper assemble which should open and close when temp is adjusted.

    It's always open so it could be the vent itself or the electronic control. Try closing it with your finger. If it stays closed see if it will open when you select the coldest temp. To get to it you'll have to take the cover off. part 458.

Refrigerator is too cold even when adjust the temperature


Too much freon? Or maybe you got the controls mixed up. My refrigerator used to freeze a gallon of milk over-night.

PSC23NSTESS FREEZING VEGTABLES


Side by Side ModelsIf foods, such as fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator are freezing, it can be caused by several things. First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If food in the bottom of the refrigerator is freezing, this could be caused by a refrigerator not having enough food to absorb the cold air.
  • If food in the door is freezing, move the door bins up or down so they are one notch away from freezer vents (Side by Side models only).
  • The fresh food control should be at the normal setting of 5.
Freezer on Top Models
First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenehit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Since the cold air coming into the fresh food section originates in the freezer above, the rear of the top shelf will be the coldest spot in the fresh food area. Avoid placing delicate items that freeze easily on the back half of this shelf.
  • If food is freezing in the produce (fruits and vegetables) or meat pan, it may be that the temperature controls are not set high enough. Since cold air naturally falls, the pans can get too cold if the refrigerator is not running long enough to maintain good air circulation. Adjust both controls up one notch.

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?

Amana AFI2538AES The refrigerator portion keeps freezing the fruits and vegetables. The chiller control is on the warmest setting and the refrigerator temp is set at 43. I have been raising every once...


Our Amana afi2538aes is doing the same thing. Had a repairman out. He called tech support at Amana. They had him adjust the "thermistors" but it is colder than ever running at 28-30degrees in the fresh food compartment despite being set at 46 degrees. Tech support also recommended installing some sort of "ice bin seal kit to take care of the problem" according to our invoice from repairman. Repairman was told that the ice bin in the fresh food compartment puts cold air out (to keep the ice frozen) which freezes the food in the fresh food compartment. I called Amana and the rep I spoke to said he couldn't find record of this being a problem with the model but tech support told our repairman "we've had a lot of problems with this happening."

My gsh25jsxjss fridge is too cold. the electronic settings do not change the temp in the fridge.... even if I put it on the warmest setting... food is freezing in the fridge area


HELLO,

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.

As you know, the deflector directs the freezer air toward the front of the frig and the rear of the cold control, please do check that to confirm the deflector is okay or not....

Hope this will help in solving the problem......

Even though i have the frig set at 1 and the freezer at 4, things in my frig are freezing. What could be wrong?


the way that works is if you set the fridge area vent wide open and freezer at 4.
then you have called for most of all the cold air to blow from the freezer in to the cooler area.
this causes the cooler area to be to cold. go the other way with the fresh food setting and give it 48 hrs.

fresh food thermister should be checked. also the damper assembly that regulates cold air from freezer to fresh food side.
