Set the freezer control higher and the refrigerator control a little lower.

Q. How can I keep produce from freezing in my refrigerator?






More Articles in This Series

Jason West, the marketing manager for refrigeration at General Electric. "Nobody really knows what the temperature of B is, or what the temperature of No. 5 is."One solution is a refrigerator thermometer. Oxo makes a handsome one with a round dial attached to a suction cup that can be installed easily on either interior side wall ($12.99 atoxo.com). Taylor makes a rectangular digital one that is installed the same way ($12.47 atamazon.com).

Once you have the thermometer, "put it in overnight and check it immediately in the morning, the first time you open the fridge," Ms. Reek said, because the temperature varies during the day as the door opens and closes.

The problem might be where you're storing fruits and vegetables, which are sensitive to cold air. Leafy vegetables are especially prone to freezing, Ms. Reek said, because of their high water content.

Although some newer refrigerators have separate cooling mechanisms for the main body and the freezer, most refrigerators cool by funneling air from the freezer into an opening near the top rear of the main compartment.

Fruits and vegetables should be kept away from this outlet, Ms. Reek said, or else "you're going to be blowing that very cold air right on the produce."

Both she and Mr. West recommended keeping produce in the crisper drawer, away from the circulating air.

"You don't want the moisture to transpire out of the product and make it limp," which can happen with produce on a shelf, Ms. Reek said.

If the crisper is full and some produce has to sit on a shelf, it's better to keep it at the front of the refrigerator, because cold air falls down along the back wall. Along with the area directly beneath the outlet, Mr. West said, "the back and bottom of the refrigerator tend to be the coldest spots."

Shirley O. Corriher, a biochemist and cookbook writer, suggests shaking off all the surface moisture from produce and sealing it in heavy zip-top freezer bags before putting it in the crisper drawer or on a shelf.

"Oxygen is a major villain, so to speak, in the deterioration of fruits and vegetables," said Mrs. Corriher, the author of "BakeWise: The Hows and Whys of Successful Baking" (Scribner, 2008) and "CookWise: The Secrets of Cooking Revealed" (William Morrow Cookbooks, 1997).

Lettuce leaves, in particular, benefit from being sealed in plastic, she said, and you should roll the bag "until you squeeze all the air out. That lettuce will keep for three weeks. It's just amazing."

Still, Ms. Reek said, "the objective of food is to eat it."

"If it's fresher, it's going to have higher vitamin content and be healthier for you," she said. "So it's really better not to plan to store food for ever and ever."

I have a problem with items freezing in the refrigerator. I have the setting as warm as I can put it. It even freezes lettuce in the vegetable crisper.


You need to change the cold control. Call Bi Coastal Appliance Parts @ 1-800-673-1262 give model and serial number.

The lettuce freezes even when we dial the control to 45 degrees. Please help


#1 Does your lettuce freeze in the crisper drawer? If so this would be your thermistor located behind the temperature control knob. At the very top inside the top cover is where it is located. It looks like a device with a wire covered in plastic that reads your temperature and allows your refrigerator to cool evenly. If your lettuce is not in the crisper drawer than this can also freeze your vegetables and dry them out. I hope I helped you.

Freezing my lettuce in crisper , so how do i change the temperature so my vegetables don't freeze. i do not have a producy manual.


Magtag has dropped the ball on this one... The temp at the top and the bottom of the units are varied. Try turning your temp gauge down just a fraction until the lettuce doesn't freeze. I also suggest getting a temp gauge (cheap) and placing on your top shelf to monitor. Temp should be around 40 degrees.

Water is not cooling


Hi: This Wide by side is like all other side by sides as to how it stores the water. Storage will be behind the crisper or meat keeper in the form of a coil of tubing or a bladder to store the water. Pretty simple. The length of tubing running from the storage to the dispenser will not be chilled. Some refrigerators do this better than others. Try setting the ref. or meat keeper a little colder. Watch your vegetables so they don't freeze. Rare, but it's possible... Older homes (before dispensers,) when fridges just had ice makers, would tap into the hot water line for ice to freeze faster and be clearer. I know this sounds crazy but it's true. I lived in an older home and in the winter the hot water would always freeze first. I know this solution sounds lame but there really is nothing much to go wrong with the water chilling. Pull your meat keeper out and look at the reservoir and see how cold it is. Good luck, Jeff

Amana Bx22s5W freezes food in the crispers


I've had the same issue with an Amana BX21TL. In my case, the problem was that the various air flow adjustments were all directing the cold air to the bottom of the fridge, underneath the vegetable crispers.

What I've done to fix this was:
1- Made sure there was a tight seal between the vent opening at the back of the fridge (at about mid-height) and the rubber/plastic duct that directs air to the meat/cheese drawer.
2- Made sure that the adjustable opening at the back of the meat/cheese drawer was fully open.
3- Made sure that the adjustable opening at the back of both vegetable crispers were fully open.

Hope this helps.

Follow up to question: meat & veg tray freezing food on new side by sid refrigerator


with very littlle ice cream I would set freezer temperature to -2 degrees and leave the humidity seting where you have it remember to let the unit run for 24 hours to stabilize then you can make another adjustment. By the way you are not being a pest I don't mind helping you at all, I am a service manager and answer quesitons allo day long.

Amana bottom freezer model #BX21TW purchased in 1996


this particualr refrig is notorious for this. check your controls ( your freezer control as well set to 4 max) any higher and the refrig is running longer, generating more cold then needed, behind the left hand crisper is a few slots( the fresh air return) by default the coldest spot in refrig, i usuallly would reccomend to my cust not to keep high water or thin walled vegies in there such as carrots cukes tom and lettuce, perfect beer and fresh /frozen defrosting meat to be though, if you ever looked at the newest bottom freezers they've pushed up the drawers and added a deli pantry, running the width of frig
