I have some frost on back wall and some food freezes now and then.

Assumeing you are saying frost on the back wall of the refigirator, I would increase the temperature for the refrigirator area. If that does not help you may have problems with the defrost system.

Why is my subzero refrigerator (model 550 o/u) leaking?

Frost build up in that area is common, it is where the compressed gas leaves the compressor on its way to the evaporator inside the unit. The putty is put there on purpose during manufacture to insulate. Things aren't helped if you have a moist warm kitchen as the air condenses at that spot and freezes. If the fridge is in reasonable condition elsewhere and you don't wish to buy another there are a few things you can do. The area with the frost can be fixed with a can of expandable foam, or foam insulation cut to size to fully cover and insulate that area. Any condensation of the back can be fixed by covering with thin polystyrene sheet which comes in a roll. cut to size and stick with contact adhesive in blobs.

Your icemaker won't make any difference to the problem. Don't forget the water supply hose should be changed every 10 years.

If you do decide to change, one benefit is cheaper running costs. Improvements are being made all the time. Having said that, SubZero are a premium make.

Side by side thermostat set low seems like it runs a lot more than it use to freezer and fridge are boyh cold

Check your coils underneath the fridge to be sure they are clean.
Check your condensor fan (bottom rear of fridge) to make sure it is blowing air freely.
Make sure you have a good supply in the freezer, All of your cooling comes from the freezer section and a mostly empty freezer will result in more frequent running as ther is not enough stock to help maintian and hold freezing temperatures.
Check your freezer section to make sure there is no visible frost on the back wall of the freezer (down low on the panels behind and slightly above the lowest freezer basket. If you see frost starting to develop it means you have a defrost issue starting and will want to adress it rather quickly. Either a problem with the defrost control board (inside fridge/freezer control compartment) or the defrost thermostat (behind the freezer back panel on top of the evaporator coils).
Hopefully this helps!

Frost free fridge freezing up..

Sir, To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant. I suggest you to contact the service authority.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

GE fridge - too cold

$00.00... I think

Make sure no vents are blocked
(or frosted over)...

If you have a freezer (or friend with one)
& an ice chest... Parcel out your food for a
three day open air defrost...

Room fans would be great...

Use NO HEAT...
as the soft plastics inside your refrigerator

An errant pizza box or ice cube can cause air intrusion... significant frost (ultimately an ICE BLOCK). A total defrost

HOWEVER... if the frost recurs
you might have a DEFROST FAILURE
(Totally different symptoms
(Not FREE... but also easy to fix)).

Here daily... FREE (just for this purpose)...

We can do this...

Freezing all veggs in fridge

The temperature in the fridge should be from 32-40 degrees. Go buy a little fridge thermometer and place it in there. They are cheap and you can pick one up many places. I leave mine in year round. Then adjust your settings accordingly. Don't do anything drastic adjust, then check in twenty-four hours then readjust if necessary to reach the proper temperature. No visible frost inside the unit anywhere right?
