Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

My LG GRL207QVJA fridge is freezing everything. Changing the temperature setting on the front control panel seems to make no difference & the temperature in the bottom half of the fridge is constantly at -5'c I bought the Fridge freezer in 2006 but as it's not wear & tear should the fault still be covered by the manufacturer?

I would check your owners manual but most LG only have a 12 month warranty .

check your Express or Fast Freezing Function is not turn on.

then you most like have a Thermistor/ control problem.

let me know

Fridge Ices Up Even on the Warmest Setting (Freezer Working Fine)


Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
If it runs then that cold control is the problem.

Refrigerator 795 69292.901 built 8/09 refrigerator is very cold. temperature adjustment does not seem to work. All of the five circles to indicate temperature look alike. None is lit up or is marked,


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.


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

Fridge freezing up


Check the fridge sensor. On my Hoover HNMF2805AL80 f/f, first I replaced control module - still freezing.
Have just replaced cheap fridge temperature sensor. Part No. 97061619. Trouble is you have to cut into insulation at back of fridge to replace. I just plugged in sensor & placed inside fridge at back at the bottom - so far so good, only lettuce freezing now, everything else v. cold but not frozen. :)

It freezes everything in the fridge,I have it on the lowest setting


depending on the make and model of your fridge, you most likely have a faulty temperature control which needs to be replaced.

some newer GE side by sides have a different issue.

Hello, This problem is going to be the cold control, this can be located in the control panel inside the fridge. This part is also called the thermostat. What is happening here is it has opened and the freezer is getting to cold which is making the fridge too cold. This is why the food in your fridge is freezing. You should replace the cold control and you will be all set. Mike

Hi my fridge freezes every thing even at it's


your thermostat is bad, what it does it sense the temperature set buy the control setting, once it goes bad it does not recognize the temperature hot or coold and the unit keep running and freezes everything. thermostat work like the therometer switch, when it reach certain temperature it cut off.

Good day.

Seems like your thermostat went shorted that is why you cant control the temperature anymore.

Samsung french door fridge not working?


I had the same problem ("OF" on display and not working) and just found a fix and it worked (on SAMSUNG site).It was correctly stated that fridge is in "demo" mode. You need to push and hold POWER FREEZE and ENERGY SAVER buttons (not "Fridge button and the Power Cool buttons" as it was suggested above).
