Most refrigerators have vents from the freezer section to the refrigerator section,usually near the top and bottom.Try turning down your freezer a little.I tried searching for some info about your refrigerator to try to locate the vents,side by sides in general,but didn't get too far.It would help if I had your model number.So for now,turn down the freezer section a notch or whatever you are comfortable with,and wait 24 hours to see if it helps.If you have some cold water or something fairly cool and unfrozen,set it in that spot overnight.It may still freeze because it takes 24 hours to adjust,but after it adjusts I would say put something about as cold as the first one there and wait until the day after to see if it makes a noticable difference.Sorry but refrigerators do take the longest to confirm out of any cooling systems.Good luck and I'll be looking for a reply.Greg

Must be a thermister out of place or out of spec. Their are several of these thermisters in the ice box. The brain sends out voltage to them. As the temp changes the resistance changes in them and the voltage fluctuates letting the brain know what the temp is. IF one of these has fallen out of place or is BLOCKED then the temp will not be sent to the brain and the brain will keep cooling that area.

what you will have to do to fix up this problem is to put of the system for some time then take out the compressor from the back of the refrigerator it is black in color then replease it back with a better one but if this assignment can not be carry out by you in order to avoid accident please apply it to be .

Need more information, but try turning the fridge to normal and the freezer the same. Try placing those items in another location. Problem could be a bad air damper.

Dryer is a Fridgidaire Home Gallery...and the dryer tumbles, and heats in beginning of cycle but the heat will not continue to heat...tumbles normally. The vents have recently been cleaned.


if it's gas you have bad gas coils,if not blow out the vent line with a leaf blower if it's long from the back of dryer to the outside vent,also make sure the outside vent isn't blocked,then remove the lint filter and then remove the duct that it slides into and clean that out,let me know what you find,this came in under a frigerator,ha kinda messed me up

Frigerator is freezing.


First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.

Now, why is too much cold air getting over to the Ref side?
1. The little door is open too much.
check your control setting. You should be able to feel air coming through the channel on the Ref side

2. The cold control is bad causing the compressor to run too much.

Cold freezer/warm refrigerator


Same problem with Frigidaire Gallery model#GLRT182SAW5 (dated 2002 on back of case)

Vents were blocked with ice. Vents (from top compartment to lower) located behind light. You can check by poking a chopstick up the (2) holes; be careful not to hit fan blades.

Solution:

- took freezer coil cover off in back; checked that defrost heater element was working (marked and rotated the timer in the hole next to light); checked that fan working. Found ice in the vents and defrost drip area. Got it out with hair dryer.

- cleaned compressor coils in back (check fan is rotating; also tweaked some of the compressor tubing bends to make them more smooth - read somewhere about a manufacturing defect ...); blew out drip tube from defroster while down there.

- Set the freezer control to WARM and the refrig control to COLD (THIS SHOULD IMPROVE AIR FLOW FROM TOP TO BOTTOM).

- Put thermometers in top and bottom. Checked that refrigerator cycles (not running continuously). Checked that cold air is coming down from (2) vents behind light.

OK: so far, so good. Lower compartment is 40 or under. Top is under 18.

CONCLUSION: Suspect marginal design. Had problems with another similar model where defroster ice doesn't drain correctly, pools and refreezes. Leading to blocked vents as well as blocked defroster drain and similar problem including dripping water from top to bottom and warm bottom.

MAYBE KEEPING THE FREEZER CONTROL AT WARM GETS AROUND THE PROBLEM?? ANYWAY, ITS WORKING FOR ME FOR NOW !!
