    Exactly the same problem as shero1 with my Liebherr. The fridge is behaving like a freezer - food inside it is freezing solid - condensation on back wall is frozen - but all settings are as normal. (Temp 5 deg.)

    My fridge has the same problem,freezing all food inside in all sections?printed circuit board has been replaced but was not a fix?Can some body please propose some other action?

    I have the same problem, my fridge has frozen everything inside it and the back panel is covered in ice. If I "defrost" the fridge it just reoccurs.

  • Anonymous Aug 06, 2008

    I've also got the same problem.
    Does anybody know how to regulate the "temperature" or is it a manufacture problem?

    Thanks.

I wrote under "guest" earlier on Aug 5th. I jave since discovered that the problem is a manufacturer problem. Apparently Liebherr had problems with their sensors, which they have since corrected, but they were put in all the earlier fridge/biofresh. I contacted the Liebherr agent in Melbourne Australia where mine came from (Andi-Co), and they have sent someone out to replace the sensor free of charge (mine has been out of warranty since March 2008). The sensor tells the compressor when to shut off, and when faulty does not do this so the compressor keeps running and freezes everything. I did have to make a bit of a fuss though and write them a letter before they came out. I printed out this page as evidence that it was clearly a manufacturing problem, which they have now confirmed. So I suggest you ask your supplier to fix the problem free of charge. Good Luck!

Freezer turns of in cold weather


Many residential refrigerator / freezers are designed to work at temperature considerably above above freezing. Most modern refrigerator / freezer have a single electric thermostat - located in the fresh food compartment. This lone thermostat will control the compressor to keep the fridge (fresh food) section at the desired temperature (usually between 34 - 38 degrees F). The freezer will get colder regardless of how cold it is already whenever the fridge thermostat turns the compressor on.

Now that you see how the thermostat works, let's look at what happens when the fridge is placed in an unheated space - like a garage. In winter time, the temperature can drop considerably below 38 degrees. If the outdoor temperature remains cold enough, for long enough - it will affect the thermostat in the fridge. The temperature inside the fridge could drop below 38 degrees, preventing the thermostat from telling the compressor to turn on. Meanwhile, the temperature in the freezer compartment slowly rises from the normal -10 to 0 F degrees. It will continue to rise until it is the same temperature as the fresh food compartment or until the thermostat in the fresh food compartment tells the compressor to turn on again. This means the freezer contents will thaw.

If the temperature in the garage is even in the 40 to 50 degree range, the loss of cold in the fridge may not happen often enough to keep the compressor coming on often enough to keep some freezer items frozen solid - such as ice cream. Remember, water freezes at 32 degrees F, other products may require lower temperatures to remain frozen, and could thaw at 28 or other temperature.

Good luck!

first run the diagnostics on the unit from the tech sheet inside the unit,then if thermistors are bad replace these there are 2 one on the left and one on the right wall in both fridge and freezer,if good per diagnostics then replace the electronic damper door located between the fridge and freezer compartments in the upper left hand corner of the fridge behind the plastic grille as these doors break and jamb open or shut and the temps can no longer be regulated during the diagnostics tests you can hear this door operate if its operating correctly,lastly,if these fail to solve your problem,replace the main control board in the back behind a panel

Icemaker overfills and freezes solid so wont dispense. also freezer has frost on everything


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.

I hope this help out....

The fridge is frozen - the temperature guage says 6 degress celsius but everything in the fridge is frozen solid!!


Hi, this problem is going to be with the running thermostat (cold Control). It has gone bad and stays open which in turn will keep the compressor running continually and will cause the fridge to get colder and freeze food. It can normally be located in the control panel inside the fridge (it is the control that has wires, the other is the damper). Locate the thermostat and replace it. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

My refrigerator freezes my food solid


There are vents that allow the cold air to flow from the freezer to the fridge. If those vents become clogged with ice or fail mechanically, they can become stuck open or closed. The temp adjustment should move the damper in the vents. But if they are frozen open, then the fridge will become too cold.
