My first suggestion would be to change the thermostat, this is the main control for termperature issues.

What is causing the food in my refrigerator to freeze?


You need to get a thermometer and check the temperature in the fridge. It could be that the air is not circulating and it is causing the temperature to go to low or you have food stacked up that is blocking air flow. It is possible that the temperature control is not working. Does the fridge sound like it is running for extended periods of time without cycling off?

My food in the refrigerator is freezing. How do I fix this? What are the temps that the fridge and freezer should be set on.


If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly. This is a common problem that often doesn't have a clear, permanent solution. The first thing to check is the overall internal refrigerator temperature. The proper temperature should be between 35 and 42 degrees. Here are some things to try: If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf. If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper.

Freezes refrigerated foods....any way to adjust the temp setting???


It depends on the model of your refrigerator. See if you have any temperature adjustment switch or something similar on the either sides of the fridge. If yes, set it to your desired temperature. If no, take it to a mechanic to regulate the cold flow.

Refrigerator freezing food.


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.

Ge fridge GSS25LFGww, fridge part freezing food


Hi, Change the controls back to normal settings. Make sure the freezer is getting 0 to 5 above. If the freezer is getting cold enough, try and turn the cold control to 1 and see if the refrigerator shuts off. It sounds like the cold control in not working properly and will need to be replaced. NOTE: The freezer temp has to be right temp or the fresh food side will not work proper.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Frigidaire side by side - fridge side temp too low


It sounds as though your thermostat is not cycling your compressor off causing it to run until the point of freezing. If you sit and listen, you will hear it hum. If it never stops humming, 9 times out of 10, the power outage shorted your thermostat.

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.

Food is freezing


usually there is an adjustment at the back for the difference between the fridge and freezer compartment. Often is just a vane that blocks freezer air, too much air would freeze the food. Normally you set the fridge thermostat for a normal food temp, then adjust the air to keep the food warmer than the freezer.
