Adjust the temperature control for the freezer to a normal setting. Fast freeze is only for when new products are put in that need to be frozen. This locks the system into a continuous run mode and could be responsible for the freezing condition in the refrigerator section. Check the temperatures with a thermometer as the sensor for the freezer temperature could be bad causing the light to come on.

SOURCE: My fridge is too cold

I wrote under "guest" earlier on Aug 5th. I jave since discovered that the problem is a manufacturer problem. Apparently Liebherr had problems with their sensors, which they have since corrected, but they were put in all the earlier fridge/biofresh. I contacted the Liebherr agent in Melbourne Australia where mine came from (Andi-Co), and they have sent someone out to replace the sensor free of charge (mine has been out of warranty since March 2008). The sensor tells the compressor when to shut off, and when faulty does not do this so the compressor keeps running and freezes everything. I did have to make a bit of a fuss though and write them a letter before they came out. I printed out this page as evidence that it was clearly a manufacturing problem, which they have now confirmed. So I suggest you ask your supplier to fix the problem free of charge. Good Luck!

These refrigerator use the cold air from the freezer the cool the refrigerator. At the rear of the upper refrigerator compartment, there is a shroud. Remove the shroud and you should see a "flapper" that shuts off the cold air when desired. You will most likely see the flap is broken. Once the flap is broken, you lose control of your refrigerator temp. This is a common problem with this refrigerator.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Freezer not freezing properly, ice on back wall

Ice on the back wall indicates a problem with the defrost cycle. The ice builds up and starts to choke off the air flow, so your symptoms would indicate that may be happening.

Defrost problems are usually any of the three components, the heater element, the defrost termination temp switch, or the defrost timer.

Why is my smeg fridge not keeping anything cool


Hi...the same thing has happened to me. My Smeg Fab28 refrigerator compartment has stopped cooling. The freezer still works. There was a build up of ice on the back fridge wall, and the milk was freezing up, so I turned down the temp. After the ice melted, I heard a bang like a bunch of ice had dropped. I turned the temp back up but it steadily stopped cooling even more. I decided to defrost the freezer, and had the power off completely for about 5 hours. When I turned it back on, the freezer worked, but the fridge is not cooling AT ALL.

Did you fix the problem and if so, how?

Thank you
Bev

Jenn air refrigerator jcd2389ges freezes fridge


Bea, try this. UNPLUG the refrigerator for 12 hours and keep the fridge and freezer doors open. You might lose some food. NOW you will find some water under the fridge. clean that and now power up the fridge. Make sure you hear the motor working. Your fridge will start cooling. Keep at recommended temp.

Kelvinator fridge not cooling


Try defrosting the fridge. Check the cold plate at the back of the food compartment once the fridge has been defrosted and turned back on again. The cold plate in the freezer (around the walls) will be cold to touch as will the cold plate at the back of the fridge,

Food in the fridge part keeps freezing even with setting at highest temp


if its at the highest setting, i.e., the largest number or letter, you have it at the COLDEST setting, and it will freeze in the refrigerated secion. Reset all controls to normal, which is the middle setting. so if your scale range is 1-9, middle setting would be 5, if scale is A-E, middle is C and so on.
After you reset controls, it will take 24 hours for temps to balance themselves out. Your food may take longer to thaw out, so dont go buy whether food is still frozen, instead place a thermometer in the center of the fresh food side. your fridge temp should be in the 35-40°F range. If after 24 hours your fridge section is still below 32, Then you do have a problem, but LG is not a simple unit to diagnose, impossible to do without inspection.

Idesit BAAN134 PSUK fridge keeps freezing food . The fridge part of my tower f/f keeps freezing food even though I have turned the dial down to the minimum the temperature regularly drops to below...


If it is an electronic thermostat it could be that the engineer has changed the board but not the sensor which reads the temp. If it is a mechanical thermostat it may be hes fitted the wrong type.It could also be that the system is short of refrigerant and the actual refrigerant charge is not getting all the way to the thermoststs sensor to switch it off, the back wall of the fridge should be frosted at least 3/4 of the way down and not just forming in a small part of the fridge.

Refigerator is freezing food


Hi, this problem is going to be with the running thermostat. It has gone bad and stays open which in turn will keep the compressor running continually. It can normally be located in the control panel inside the fridge. Locate the thermostat and replace it. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!

Things freese-up in the kenmore fridge


Try turning down the unit a half knotch, 1 full knotch at MAX, the cold air comes from the freezer to the refrig(fresh food) section, its rolls up the back of the wall to circulate it

A fridge that is to cold is usually shown when food nearest the back wall freezes( i get this call plenty times a day, this is the fix)

recommened freezer temp 0-5, fresh food(refrig) temp is 32-40
