Is it safe to refreeze meat, such as venison steak after it has completely thawed?


Refreezing
Once food is thawed in the refrigerator, it is safe to refreeze it without cooking, although there may be a loss of quality due to the moisture lost through thawing. After cooking raw foods which were previously frozen, it is safe to freeze the cooked foods. If previously cooked foods are thawed in the refrigerator, you may refreeze the unused portion. Freeze leftovers within 3-4 days. Do not refreeze any foods left outside the refrigerator longer than 2 hours; 1 hour in temperatures above 90 °F.

If you purchase previously frozen meat, poultry or fish at a retail store, you can refreeze if it has been handled properly.

Replaced the water filter 3 days ago, no water now. Took filter off and it had so much pressure it almost blew out of my hand. Put old filter back on and same problem. Ice maker works fine.


the frig uses a dual valve and the foutain water is filter water the water line is frozen ( i think ) and if you warm up the freezer it will flow . try it and we'll go from there .. freezer tempt should be around 0 to 5 deg . also ck the water blater behind the crisper and see if its frozen and veg will also freeze . this may be caused by a bad dampner control between the freezer and the fresh food side. mm hope this helps . feed backk pls ..

Refrigerator Making cold air, but not keeping food cold/frozen


Either defrost timer or Refrigerator thermostat, both located in the ceiling of the refrigerator, can give you long enough off times to actually cause thawing and then refreezing. Feel the rear wall of the freezer, half way down to see if a layer of frost has formed on it. This can indicate a problem in the defrost system which has three components.

The only way to be sure which of the two components is the cause would be to catch it in the thawing phase (not running). Tapping hard on the refrigerator temperature control knob can make it come on if it is the source of your problem. Good Luck

Freezer will not keep foods frozen fridge will not keeep temp.


Sounds like a main control board problem keeping the freezer fan from working . If no air flow to the top of the freezer , the icemaker will stop working and the ice will begin to melt ( leaking from freezer ) . The coils will start to freeze up due to no air flow across them . If continued for a period of time , the cold air could return thru the return vent located in the bottom of the ref/freezer section and freeze the water tank in the refrig section , causing the no water thru dispensor .

Everything works but no water


Try turning down the freezer a little.

You can 'thaw' the water line in the door by hanging some towels in the freezer with the door open. Should thaw in a couple hours. At least this way you don't need to empty the freezer.

Freezer thawing and refreezing


The freezer is supposed to thaw at least everyday. Only, you usually kant tell because it doesn't do it long enough to melt the food so you don't notice it. You have a couple of components to check here. 1 is the defrost timer, which unless it has been changed recently, has the same pre determined defrost time. So you would have noticed by now. Next is the defrost termination switch. If you have excess ice on the evaporator, this will make the defrost longer than before. Unless the switch is going bad causing the defrost to go extra long, there is an excess amount of ice that is more than usual. Bad door seal will cause this. A slightly low freon charge. And a thermostat that is malfunctioning, causing the freezer to run continuously, will make excess ice buildup in the freezer. I would make sure the kids aren't leaving the door open and the gaskets are good. If not the case, call a repairman.
