Fridge freezing up

My fridge is freezing some food in it. I have checked the drain hole at the back of fridge and it is clear. I have also changed the temperature control in the opposite direction from the cooler setting. The green indicator temperature inside the fridge is showing OK. Please can you advise.

If the fridge is freezing everything, try this before thinking it's the thermostat first turn down the temp gauge in the freezer, not fridge to about medium, still a bit to cold turn down a little more. It save me heaps

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. :)

Sometimes the refidgerator freezes and then leaks


Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curtain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you have any other question.

Same Problem ...Drain Hole Freezing up.


After facing the same issue (defrosting, cleaning the drain, drain gets blocked again...start again: defrost, etc..) I decided to try to give it one last go:
1. Defrost

2. Clean & rinse the drain (ensure is fully clean and I can pass liquid through the drain).

3. Get a ~30 cm pure copper wire
In my case I took a 3amp power cable, and took the copper wire from one of the cables.

4. Wrap one end of the copper wire around the copper coil at the back of the fridge (where the coil is warmest)

5. Insert the other end of the copper wire in the drain (just above the drip tray). I inserted ~15cm of wire into the drain.

The purpose of these last steps was to ensure there was no "freezing" happening on the drain. The copper effectively will keep the temperature inside the drain above freezing.

Not sure how permanent this might be.. so far at least I'm getting more months than with the previous symptoms treatments ;)

Best of luck!

Maytag refrigerator leaks water from the freezer


sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

Fridge


ok pull the cover off the back wall of the freezer compartment where the evaporator fan is after look under the evaporator should see an aluminum pan with a hole there that's the drain hole for the defrost system if its frozen and that hole is stopped up then every time it defrosts the water will run in the freezer and freeze and also drip into the fridge remove the ice and clear the hole also check the drain tube in the back to make sure its clean
