Check to see if the evap. fan is running or if you have frost build-up on the back wall of the freezer. if so call a service company quick because the freshfood section is not cooling either; all the cooling starts in the freezer and transfer air via evap fan to the freshfood section. am are more subject to defrost t-stats going bad

Why are frozen bread items and small cups of ice cream thawing in freezer and not other things?


Ice cream requires a min. temp of 28 deg. you're most likely at about 30 or 31.

  1. make sure your air flow vents are free of ice in the freezer.
  2. turn up your temp control
  3. pull out fridge and clean and vac the rear coils and the motor area. make sure to clean the fan blades
this should do it mike

Freezer will not freeze ice ceam


Before you go any further it is important that you check for freezer temps. Yes, you have frozen items but remember that water freezes at 32 degrees and many items will get hard at that temp. And also remember that the lower the temp the longer frozen items will keep.

But ice cream needs proper freezer temps close to zero degrees. Use a digital thermostat and check for your freezer temp - bet it it is no where near zero. I had the same problem and attributed it to the fact that I was not using a name brand ice cream!!!! I was wrong ! LOL.

Freezer is cold but not keeping icecream frozen.


If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.

Bottom freezer on Subzero refrigerator not thoroughly freezing


Ice cream needs to be kept colder than other stuff. Get a freezer thermometer, it's handy for the fridge too. Find and check your defrost timer. It's about the size of a cell phone, has about five wires going to it in one plug. On the back is a small dial that turns one way only. Mark it with white out and wait an hour to see if it moves. It moves real slow. If your freezer is frozen up and no air comes out of the coil area, you'll have to do a manual defrost of the freezer.

Freezer seems as if it is not cold enough


Your sensor is packed in ice and giving false reading (always frozen)

You NEED to defrost. Will take 2hr

Turn off or Pull plug on freezer
Take everything out and put in cooler, brown bags, large bin or boxes to stay cold
Defrost by setting large pail of boiling water in each side bottom of freezer and closing door(s) for 1/2hr
Open freezer, empty pails in sink and use pails to hold large chunks of ice from freezer that will come out easily
Toss out ice chunks
Check sensor to be sure it is no longer packed in ice
Wipe down interior dry
close doors
plug in
wait 1/2hr
reload with stuff you want to keep
Done!

We have a Whirlpool gb22dk refrigerator freezer. The bottom freezer keeps meat frozen but will not keep sea food ice cream bread ect frozen. This fridge came with our house which we purchased 2 years ago...


1st.Check the freezer door gasket for any place it maybe torn or not making a 100% seal when you close the door.That would make temperature drop. 2nd.take off bottom kick plate so you can look under the refrigerator.Using a flashlight make sure there is not alot of lint / dust stuck on the coils .If there is remove it carefully and you will see temperature lower. PLEAS RATE THIS!
