Refrigerator keeps freezing even after settings have been rased


37 for the refrigerator and 0 for the freezer is the factory starting point. If you are still having problems with freezing in the refrigerator, bring the temp of the freezer up above 0

Fridge freezing up


Set your Ref/Freezer per the following:

Refrigerators:
36 to 40 degrees. Ideal temp is 37 Fahrenheit. Note: A temp above 42 degrees promotes bacteria.
Freezer: temp should be -5 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit. Ideal temp is 0 degrees.

You have to wait about 4 hours for everything to stabilize. If you are still having ice forming inside the freeezer then the rubber seal around the door is probably the problem. If they have a split, tear or crack, etc. it will let warm moist house air into the freezer and turn to ice as it cools. If this happens in the refrigerator it'll turn to water and collect in the bottom of the frig. New seals can cost around $60 per door.

If you pack too much food in the unit it may also cause freezing because the air needs to move around in there and food shouldn't block the vents in the back walls of the unit.

Hopefully this helps..

Side by side refrigerator


produce freezes at 35 f also make sure you fan in your freezer is working. when you hear the fridge running open the freezer door and see if fan is running. if not replace the fan or call for service. if your fan is running adjust the temps to a 37 for fridge and 0 for freezer.

Sometimes when the refrigerator temp is 37* some of the food will get frozen.


Your thermostat is faulty. The vegetables cannot freeze at 37 degrees. It will not freeze until it's at 32 degrees. The sensor is wrong as it is impossible to freeze anywhere above 32.

Model 106 56569400 - Freeze side appears to be Ok. Refrig side not cooling to set temp 37. Current temp is 55-60. Door appears to seal properly.


If you have heavy frost build up on the back wall of your freezer you have a defrost problem. One of three things. Defrost timer, Defrost T-stat or Defrost heater. Usually problem is with the T-stat. If no frost make sure the evap fan is blowing. You should be able to hear a fan noise when opening freezer. If no fan noise replace evap fan which is located half way up behind freezer wall. Good Luck

Maytag fridge which freezes food in fridge compartment


How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php


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. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.
