    Your refrigerator is made by Whirlpool yet some numbers are missing that would help me answer your question.When you mentioned that the bottom of the fresh food section is frozen do you mean too cold? And can you send a few more numbers like 106.4402602 for example? Thanks, Sea Breeze

    model 106.4402. 602

    yes, the bottom of the fresh food section is frozen. it is too cold even temperature is set 10C.

    the top of the freezer part is too warm even the temperature is set -18C.

    please advice.

    One other question. Is your model the side by side or the freezer over the fresh food section? Sea Breeze Sorry I always have these questions when Sears Changes Whirlpool model numbers to their crazy numbers.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite 106-74202402 Freezes food ice solid in the fridge

Hi

Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

I can offer a suggestion. It sounds like you have a plugged defrost drain line. This is where the water goes to in the bottom of your freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal of ice from the freezer coil) cycle. It sounds like that hole is plugged and now the water/ice has now frozen in the vent that lets air circulate down into your refrigerator compartment. What I usually do in this case is to unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer compartment. Usually I also end up either pulling off the back panel or the bottom panel (in the freezer compartment) Looking for that defrost drain hole and thawing it out with a heat gun (be careful of melting plastic) or actually I use a hair dryer. I can sometimes do this also by pouring small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then sopping/absorbing it away with a sponge or dishcloth. I repeat this until I get the water to go down the drain tube

SOURCE: Kenmore elite - Water dripping from freezer to refrigerator

Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze

The freezer works well but the fridgedoes not get cold enough


all the fridge does is blow cold air from the freezer down into the fridge section so if the freezer is working then either the evap fan isn't working or the air ducts are frozen up.first thing open the freezer door,you should hear the fan blowing,if not the fan motor could be bad,if it is blowing,touch the back inside wall of the freezer,is there any ice or like snow on it,if so you have a defrost problem,one more thing to check,open the fridge door,look under the bottom draws,is there any water there? or any water dripping into the fridge section from the freezer,if so you have a blocked drain and the air ducts are frozen.let me know what you find,send the model number off of the fridge,open the fridge door and look on the left side up near the ceiling,you should see a tag with the model and serial numbers just send the model
