Admiral fridge freezer GC2224GEKB - fridge section is freezing up - can you help

Posted by on

  • nancyplatt Sep 13, 2010

    We checked everything you suggested and the fan and condenser unit are OK. We've turned both the freezer and fridge temperature down to "1" and even at the lowest temperature the freezer is still keeping the food frozen. The top two shelves in the fridge are still freezing up but the bottom shelf is not. Can you suggest a solution? Thanks very much for your help.

Inside the freezer listen to see if you hear a fan blowing and look on back wall and see if you have a frost build up? Pull fridge out from wall and take the lower panel off and see if that fan is blowing to and feel the compressor cool, warm or hot

If the compressor is quite warm and the fan is not running, or the fan in the fridge side blows cold air when the freezer door is open, but doesn't work when the door is closed, then You will need to replace the condenser motor in the back; you can pick one up local or online at www3.sears.com and you have frost built up behind the cover inside the freezer because of this so you will need to also defrost your freezer.

Hope this helps.

I have an admiral gc2224gekb side by side. The ice machine isn't producing ice and also the fridge is freezing up


First, check to see if the airflow is blocked at the back of the fridge compartment as this also may cause the lower items to freeze. Fridge freezing is usually the malfunction of the damper swing door or the circuit controlling it. A failure of the temperature sensor in the fridge could be the cause. We just had ours replaced this year [on extended warranty]

Admiral american fridge freezer constantly blowing cold air into fridge compartment.


Changing the freezer settings won't really make a difference because regardless its still going to be freezing. The way the machine works is the freezer cools the fridge, and there should be a control in the fridge that operates the baffles in the airway between the freezer and fridge and reduces the amount of air that enters into the fresh food section.

Hi i have a fridge freezer model no GC2224GEKB,i have noticed that the refrigeration side has started to freeze even though i have it set to 3oc.


I just answered the same question so I've copied you into it hope you don't mind.
A common problem to this is the damper (vent from freezer) is bad or just stuck open, try defrosting it and adjusting the position so that you reduce the amount of cold air going into the fridge, hopefully it'll just be stuck in the open position and you well have no further problems. Always here to help.. Richard.

You may have to open the door to let the dispenser thaw since it's in the door.
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. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Is the back of the freezer section iced up?
If so you could have a defrost problem. All the cooling components are in the freezer section there is a damper controlled by a dial in the refrigerator that opens and closes.
If the damper is closed it will not allow air into refrigerator section. It is seperate from the Thermostat.
If the damer is opened to much you can start freezing food in the refrigerator section.
If there is ice on the back wall of the freezer section. It is not defrosting. There are 3 parts in the defrost process. The thermination stat, the heater, and the defrost timer or it's a timer on the electronic board behind the metal plate on the back of the refrigerator.
Good Luck

Does freezer cool like the cold food section? Did this suddenly happen, and frozen food began to thaw?  Most freezers control the cooling in the cold food section. The freezer must work fine before the cold food section will work fine. Let us know more, Thanks JT
