Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

The freezer compartment is not freezing everything, especially ice cream, breads, frozen fruits and froxen vegetables Ice in a baggie is slowly melting. Control is turned up almost as high as it can go. Ice is freezing OK but the water flow stopped and we can not get it started again.

Hello,

Check the thermostat for temperature setting. Make sure your freezer is not too stuffed and that there is enough space for air flow. Check for the restriction of air flow in the vents. Clean the coils of the condenser if found clogged. Also look out for clogged drain tube and if there is a leakage of the refrigerant. Test various components such as temperature control knob, evaporator fan, defrost timer and the door switch.

Take care.

the coolant gas has slowly leaked out. A good indication this has happened is that the bottom of the freezer is a lot warmer than the top. To repair a serviceman will first cut the coolant pipe and drain (and capture) the existing gas and then recharge, re-pressurise and seal.

It frezees vegitable in vegitable compartment & in frezer ice / ice cream turns into liguid


a refrigerator when not defrosting will get too much ice in the freezer and work the compressor too hard resulting in a freezer that is too warm and if you dial up the thermostat to compensate will result in freezing your vegetables and fruits in the crisper      make sure the back wall of the freezer is not iced up   if it is then either the heater cable is broken, or a thermal cut off failed  or the defrost timer has failed

I have the machine but not the manual that goes with it.


Things You'll Need:
  • Fruit
  • Blender
  • Vodka
  • Lemon juice
  • Sugar, honey or agave nectar
  • Ice cream maker or freezer
  1. Choose your fruit or even blend more than one kind of fruit. As a general rule, it is best to use juicy, pulpy fruit, such as watermelon, mango or strawberries; however, you can add a splash of orange juice or even throw in banana for extra cream. Blend your selected fruits well in a blender.
  2. For every 2 or 3 cups of blended fruit, add 1 Tbsp. of vodka and 2 Tbsp. of lemon juice. If you are serving sorbet to children or cannot consume even these small amounts of vodka, simply replace with lemon juice; however, know that you will not be able to taste or feel the effects of vodka in your finished product.
  3. Blend sugar into the mix; however, add just a spoonful at a time, tasting until you reach your desired level of sweetness. As an alternative to sugar, you can use honey or even agave nectar.
  4. Place your mixed sorbet in an ice cream maker to freeze for the creamiest results. If you do not have an ice cream maker, simply place your sorbet in the freezer for a few hours; however, sorbet will be a bit harder in texture but just as tasty if frozen in the freezer.

Ice Cream and frozen waffles won't freeze.


LOL ! SO in other words in plain english your repair man told you needed a brand new refrigerator - Ok from your description here we can rule out low refrigerant or compressor problems, defrost timer and controlboard issues. I too have waffles and they DO get frozen although not as hard as ice - the less water molecules they have the less they are frozen hard. but nonetheless, my waffles are NOT soft, neither is ice cream

What I would ike you to do is put one of those refrigerator/freezer type thermostats, you can get those round ones, place it in your freezer leave it there 24 hours and look again - Optimal freezer temps is 0F once compression cycles off - if you areusing the extra cold setting, -10F - For refrigerator don't go over 40F - optimal temp of 36-38F.
Another method you can place a bowl of water and use one of those probes and measure the temp of the water in your fridge. If your temps are within safety levels do not worry - your ice is frozen and your frozen food is frozen - Some ice cream tend to be softer, especially the extra creamy type. If your refrigerator has a dial to adjust temps, raise it slightly and wait 24 hours and check your temps again you might need to bump down the temps a bit - if you have a control panel and 2 settings they are usually COLD or COLDER, set it to COLDER and check again - in the COLDER setting your compressor will shut down once your freezer hits -10F that should be quite enough to have even your waffles and extra creamy icecream frozen - if some of the liquids in your refrigerator is too cold or freezes, set it back to COLD or re-adjust the dial. Once you determined that your freezer AND refrigerator are within SAFETY levels as per the food safety guidelines and using the proper methods of testing, then you have nothing to worry about. Make sure your fridge and freezer are not leaking cold air by checking your door gaskets using the famous dollar bill technique by closing the door on the dollar bill and trying to pull it out - if there is no resistence and can easily come out, you have a gasket leak - check in different places on the gasket. As long as you can determine that your freezer and fridge temps are SAFE don't spend a dime ! If your temps are NOT in the safe range you probably have leaky gaskets - if the compressor seems to run all the time, you probably have dirty condenser coils that need to be vacuumed cleaned or dusted off using a condenser brush.

Some items in freezer are not frozen: bread, cool whip, etc. Meat and veggies ARE frozen. any idea?


This is normal for these particular items. They don't "seem" to be frozen but they are fine. If everything else is frozen that should be, like, ice cream, ice cubes, frozen vegetables, then you don't have a problem. Do make sure your freezer is not building up ice anywhere and that the door is completely shut when you close it.

Ice builds up inside packages in freezer.


This is the moisture coming out of the food. It is what causes freezer burn.

The problem is made worse in frost free models by the defrost cylce. Best way to slow it down is to use vacuum bags or freezer bags. Also above 0 F food deterioates faster and below it gets freezer burn and the moisture problem faster.

Freezer not freezing


not freezing icedraem is an issue, bread not so much, different breads contain different ingrediants that may or may not freeze, forst offthough wher is unit located??? in garage??? if so be aware that it may not operate efficiently ion ambient temps lower then 55 degrees, but if this is in your kitchen i would suspect a "refrigeration"/sealed system issue, perhaps "low on charge and not able to maintain a frozen set temp. Meat may stay frozen ( for a little while anyway, but the ice cream is the first to show indications of problem
