Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

My refrigerator and freezer temps are set on 3. I have slowly reduced the temp due to both compartments due to being too cold. Vegetables in the bins are not lasting because of cold temps and the freeezer has some frost crystals inside the packages. Should I reset the controls by turning everything off?

There is a balance between the freezer and fridge. Reduce the freezer temp and see what the fridge temp does. By reduce I
mean make the freezer warmer. If it is set too cold the fridge gets colder.

Meat and vegetables placed in the produce drawers turn to ice. fridge temp set at 39. freezer set at 0. as you face the fridge, the drawer on your left is the worst. fruit is okay in right drawer.


check the damper door vent assembly located between the freezer and refrige compartments and make sure its not frozen open so as to let cold air in all the time,adjust the temp in the refrige and the door should open and close with adjustments,if not then damper door motor assy or the electronic control board is defective that supplies power to this door

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.

Either the temprature control is malfunctioning or the cold air duct dampers stuck up due to forsting. Switch off the refrigerator for 3 hours and restart.

Freezing in refrigerator


Inside the fresh food compartment on top left there is something called an air baffle. It runs between the freezer and fresh food compartment and its purpose is to electrically control the amount of cold air coming from the freezer. Sometimes they freeze open and will not close. So you may need to turn off the refrigerator during the time you examine it. Look for ice blocking the movement of the baffle damper. Sometimes just one time clearing the problem is all you need to fix it. Let me know what you find and if you are able to get it going again, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Temperature adjustment


Generally the freezer temp is the REAL temp of the unit. Fans, dampers and manual control levers let some of that cold freezer air into the refer compartment to cool it. Check your owners manual for damper operations if you have one. If you have a refer temp control all that does is control a damper to let the cold freezer air into the compartment. Also make sure you don't block off any of those vents in the refer or freezer compartment or bad air circulation can occur.
