The freezer should be set to 0 degrees and the fridge 37 degrees according to the manual. If your unit has only numbers then it would number 4 or 5 for the freezer and 6 or 7 for the fridge.

Refrigerator food freezing even when on lowest setting


There is one of three reasons why your fridge section is freezing food. You didnt mention whether you had a side by side or freezer on top or bottom model, so the following checks may not apply to your unit.

One reason food might be freezing is your cold control has failed, and will not turn the unit off when the physical temps are correct. When this occurrs food normally freezes throughout fridge section, top, bottom, middle, front and back.
BOTH controls, though you may only have one, should be at the middle setting. Adjust your controls, place a plastic cup of water at the top, the middle, and bottom shelf of your fridge. Check all three AFTER 24 hours. if all three are ice, you COULD have a bad cold control.

It is possible you might also have a door damper that is stuck open. A door damper is a swinging or sliding door that opens / closes either when temp control settings are adjusted, or on some fridges, when either door is opened, the damper closes. Please note, door dampers are USUALLY only present on side by side refrigerators. They can have a motor, or thermostat open the door automatically,which can break, and others will simply have a lever of some sort, which usually wont.

If after 24 hours, only the middle and bottom cups are ice, your evaporator fan motor, in the freezer, is likely not operating. Not knowing the BRAND you own, it could be the motor itself, a thermostat located on the evaporator, your defrost heater, or a main computer control board that controls the fan motor.

Sorry I cant be as specific as id like, but i had to cover all possible bases

My ge profile arctica is about 9 years old. It is freezing food in the refrigerator, temp control is set at a 4 and the thermometer inside reads anywhere from 28 -40 in various areas of the fridge. Milk...


first run the diagnostics on the unit from the tech sheet inside the unit,then if thermistors are bad replace these there are 2 one on the left and one on the right wall in both fridge and freezer,if good per diagnostics then replace the electronic damper door located between the fridge and freezer compartments in the upper left hand corner of the fridge behind the plastic grille as these doors break and jamb open or shut and the temps can no longer be regulated during the diagnostics tests you can hear this door operate if its operating correctly,lastly,if these fail to solve your problem,replace the main control board in the back behind a panel

Food freezes in the refrigator


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.

Ge fridge GSS25LFGww, fridge part freezing food


Hi, Change the controls back to normal settings. Make sure the freezer is getting 0 to 5 above. If the freezer is getting cold enough, try and turn the cold control to 1 and see if the refrigerator shuts off. It sounds like the cold control in not working properly and will need to be replaced. NOTE: The freezer temp has to be right temp or the fresh food side will not work proper.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

I have a GE side by side GS25LGM. The fridge side gets too cold that it freezes the vegetables. There is a humidity control on the vegetable bin. It didn't matter if I set it to high or low it still...


try turning down the thermostat for the freezer side some times the controls seem backward. However most fridges are desighned for thwe freezer side with some thought giving to pushing some air to the refrige side. in most cases it easier to start back at medium settingsfor two or three days.

GE Profile Side by Side is getting too cold on the fridge side.


I have a GE refrigerator with the same problem of my food freezing in the refrigerator. I spoke to an appliance part person and they sold me a temperature sensor for 20 bucks. They said it would be located in the control panel, but I took the control panel off and can't find the sensor. I'm now looking on yahoo answers to find out where the sensor is located.
