Frozen Veggies in Crisper Drawers and Water under Drawers

I have a refrigerator that has been acting more like a freezer. The produce in my crisper drawers has been freezing. (Frozen plums, nectarines, celery and cucumbers just aren't very appetizing!)

I have water under the drawers and also on my shelves. I raised the temp in both the fridge and freezer (by 4 degrees above the mfg. suggestion in the freezer and by 7 degrees in the fridge.) hoping that would help with the frozen produce. It hasn't.

I called Sears service and they didn't give me any ideas, just a service call for $200-250. I said no thank you.

My fridge is only 3 years old. This problem started earlier this year. My husband is very handy, so he could probably fix it if he has a clue where to start.

Thank you,
Melky

Water under the crisper doors is pretty common, all you have to do is raise the front legs of the refrigerator, Refrigerators have a heater in them that keep everything from freezing, if it wasnt for the heater then it would just be a freezer, now alot of these samsungs have 2 evaps, so if you get a warm fridge, its prob. because a sensor is out or the heater is out and there is ice buildup inside the unit preventing either the fan from turning, or just blocking air flow, but for the water, just raise the front legs and there is a drain in the back that it will go into from now on

Then get a turkey baster and fill it with hot water. Insert it in the drain in the bottom and squeeze it cleaning the drain. Several applications will solve the problem, and do not forget the freezer side as well.
Good Luck,

Why are my veggies freezing even thought the temp is set to 40?


Most fridges have crisper drawers that have a selection lever on either the front or side of the drawer that allows you to select eiher veggies or meat. Veggie setting is supposed to keep the crisper drawer warmer, while Meat setting makes it the coldest possible.

If you don't have the selector slide levers, I would suggest you use the highest possible crisper drawer available, as the lower in the frdge compartment you go, the colder the air will be. That should resolve the problem you're having, other than lowering the fridge temp setting slightly.

You might notice a cold air exchange vent next to your crisper, which supplies cold air from the freezer section into the fridge section, so that could be contributing to the colder temps in the crisper where you keep your veggies.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Refrigerator crisper drawers are freezing veggies


Shut the air flow into the crispers if you can. If not, turn the refrigerator temperature warmer by just a few degrees. The air into the fridge from the freezer is channeled into the crispers.

Water on the bottom shelf of the Refridgerator


Has the refrigerator got a wet inner back?
Ff this is wet, adjust it until this solid ice 'blobs', bt not encrusted, like in a freezer
The refrigerator may not be cool enough and the natural warm moisture allowed into the cool compartment when the door is open is condensing into fluid before it is cooling sufficiently to suspend the moisture as a vapour. If the cool compartment is cool enough, any warm air admitted ill be chilled before it is allowed to condense, keeping the refridgerator dry.
However, the only drawback is that you will have to monitor it to prevent the build up of excesive ice.
Also, whether the refridgerator is either empty of full willaffe the day to day operation.
Hope this helps.
