Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

All, My problem is this. Recently things in the refrigerator are freezing. I have not changed the temp and certain things are freezing (baby carrots, leftover rice, grapes, etc). Additionally, the water will no longer flow from the water dispenser inside the refrigerator. I am guessing that is another symptom related to the things freezing. We live in Louisiana and the temperature has become cooler outside (90+ down to 80s) not sure if that would have anything to do with it. What do you suggest?

Why are vegetables freezing in crisper?


There is a control on refrigerator that controls the amount of cold air that is directed from freezer to refrigerator section. Locate that control and lower the amount of cold air going into refrig.

Ge bottom freezer not freezing


Check to see that the evaporator is not covered with layer of ice. The latter serves as an insulator and prevents freezer temps from going down to about zero degrees. If the defrost heater/timer is defective that will certainly be a cause. Since the freezer air is not cold enough to freeze, then the refrigerator temps are also high. Using a digital thermometer will confirm this.

Leaking door gaskets can also be responsible for higher internal temps

Delfield ColdPro Refrigerator, Commercial unit, two door reach in... recently has begun to freeze.... Temp setting stays at 37F and for some reason, just on occasion it will drop to 0... and everything...


Intermittent failure of thermostat is the most likely problem.

Check the temp sensor to make sure it is clean.

You can check for voltage coming out of the thermostat when the unit is working improperly.

If the setting is on.... say, 36, the temp is... say, 26, and there is still voltage coming from the T-stat telling the compressor and fan motors to operate, then you have a bad T-stat/sensor.

Most T-stats for that type unit do not have a separate removable sensor, its all one part with a sensor on a long tube/wire.

You can probably buy one from your local refrigeration supply warehouse for less than 35 bucks.

If it were a more consistent problem, I would say you have clogged coils or low refrigerant. But if most times it works fine, and then just randomly will not shut off, that's likely a controls thing. = T-stat.

Kenmore Elite 106-74202402 Freezes food ice solid in the fridge


Hi

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.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Sub zero 632 s frig freezing everything


First, is the temp really 40??  Get your outside thermometer and stick it in there.  You may get a surprise.  If so, see if the thermostat will respond to any changes.  It is possible that either the sensor or the electronics have gone bad...I'd vote for the sensor.  
the other possibility might be low gas...but I'll want to see what the temp in the unit is and whether the changes you make do anything.

Refrigerator freezes things the freezer works fine:


Most common is a dirty condenser coil. If you have not cleaned it recently vacuum and brush the coil underneath and the back bottom compressor compartment. Blocked air flow will cause erratic temps in the refrigerator section.

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator too cold


On a fridge freezer only the fridge temperature is monitored. In a cold location the fridge might not even need cooling and the freezer would get too warm but the thing won't care.

If the fridge sensor sees it as too warm then it will keep the motor running and the first thing to get really cold is the freezer.

Remember the freezing part is not temperature controlled ion a fridgefreezer.

Refrigerator Problem


Could be the temp control is not registering temps correctly. If you leave is below 6 does everything warm up? The compressor should only run when it needs to, not all the time. In other words, if you put it on 4 will the food stay cool (about 38F)? A typical unit only runs a few minutes a day if the doors are not opened up all the time.
