FREEZING REFRIGERATOR


Hello Pam, Welcome to FixYa. In actuallity most fridges whether they are side by side, conventional top mount, or bottom mount, the control for the fridge section is nothing more than a damper which allows or prevents air flow through the fridge section. The thermostat which control the "run time" or actual temperature is the freezer control. It is possible to set the fridge control at "1" and yet still have items feeze because the freezer control is set to "3", "5", or higher. Try adjusting the freezer control to a lower number as well and see what that yields. You may also want to vacuum out your condensor coils under the unit...( unplugging the power cord first of course ;) safety first ) this too can cause items to freeze in the fridge section. Without getting too deep into how it all works I'll just say it effects the entire system negatively. Hope you find this an acceptable solution and can take a moment to rate it accordingly. Thank you for visiting FixYa and please let me know if you require further assistance. macmarkus :)

There is a puddle of water inside the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable bins.


How many items are in your freezer? I had this problem and there was too much in the freezer, not allowing the air to circulate properly in the freezer, thus resulting in freeze up in the top (freezer) and condensation below in refrigerator section. Additionally, I had the refrigerator setting too cold, which accelerated the problem. I had to thaw the drain hole in the freezer section, below the fan, to allow water to leave freezer during defrosting stage. Hope this helps?

Purchased in 2002 and is starting to freeze in the


Check the back of the fruit and vegi drawers. If theres a slot for an intake port try closeing it (if adjustable) Check thermostat setting for fridge and adjust to a lower setting.
Finally make sure door closes and seals closed, clean gasket with mixture of white vinegar and water (1 cup vinegar to 1 gallon warm water). If this fails internal thermostat may need replacing.

Bad defrost timer/ thermostat???


It definitely sounds like you have a bad defrost timer, that is the reason the coils are icing up on you. The next issue, which may or may not be related is the freezing of items in the refrigerator. Usually the cold air is transferred, through a vent with a damper, from the freezer and into the refrigerated section. The "thermostat" for this section is actually usually just a lever to adjust the position of the damper. That being said, usually when you have a problem such as you are having, it is either a stuck or broken damper (or damper component). Hope this helps

Both top sections fridge/freezer of my side by side are not cold


Sounds like a defrost problem. Remove food from freezer section, take the back wall out after removing shelves, and use a hair blower to melt off the ice and frost. Most likely you need to replace the defrost heater.

Crisper and veggie bins are freezing the produce


I have dealt with bosch and thermador quit a bit and they usually don't have to much of a recommendation for these settings because they are more of a commercial type appliance producer and all situations are different. Here is a tip for the sliders though. Remember that leafy produce needs more airflow to hold its texture and taste and anything with a skin requires less airflow. As far as the temp settings I believe the most nominal settings are going to be in between 5 & 7 to keep from freezing the produce. You will have to play around with it a little though to get it to keep the ref good and cold but keep from freezing the vegies. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Items in the back of the refrigerator freeze.


is this something that has just started happening? Most kenmore top freezers have a vent that allows cold air from the freezer into the refrig through a vent located on the back wall in the center of the refrig section. if packages are pushed up under this vent they can freeze. 

If you have widespread freezing in the refrig setion then a temperature control could be the fault. thanks for using fixya. Peyton..
