The thermostat is getting tired and will not control the temperature properly. You will need to get a new themostat fitted

Tip

I just bought a thermometer to check the temps.


when you get a 5 dollar thermometer to see if your refrigerator is working right, dont count on it being accurate.
the first thing to do is to set both controls to the mid point. then allow it to sit with the doors closed for 24 hours.
after that, check the food temps, not what the thermometer is reading. if the food is freezing, ie; vegetables or fruit, set the refrigerator warmer.
if the freezer items ie; ice cream, is too warm, then set the refrigerator control colder.
after either change, allow the unit to reach that change for 24 hours.
the main thing to remember is the refr control affects the overall temperature. and the freezer control just affects where the air moves to, keep it in the middle!!
always remember to keep the coils under the unit clean and dust free.

Our Amana afi2538aes is doing the same thing. Had a repairman out. He called tech support at Amana. They had him adjust the "thermistors" but it is colder than ever running at 28-30degrees in the fresh food compartment despite being set at 46 degrees. Tech support also recommended installing some sort of "ice bin seal kit to take care of the problem" according to our invoice from repairman. Repairman was told that the ice bin in the fresh food compartment puts cold air out (to keep the ice frozen) which freezes the food in the fresh food compartment. I called Amana and the rep I spoke to said he couldn't find record of this being a problem with the model but tech support told our repairman "we've had a lot of problems with this happening."

If your veg is freezing you need to RAISE the temp in the fridge,if #7 is coldest,then #1 is warmest.SET IT TO #3.You should keep a fridge at +5C for best storage of CHILLED food.you should also adjust your fridge for summer and winter ambient temperatures.a fridge/FREEZER thermometer is ESSENTIAL.OTHERWISE YOUR WASTING MONEY/ENERGY.

My fruit and vegetable drawers keep freezing my fruits and vegetables. What could be causing this to occur?


Hello, 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.the air deflector....
As you know, the deflector directs the freezer air toward the front of the frig and the rear of the cold control I hope this will help....

Food (vegetables, fruits) on the refrigerater side freezing


Your model has a control damper inside the vent. The damper opens and closes with changes in temperature. It has a pig tail spiral thermostat on the side and if it goes bad the door sticks open or closed. Sometimes it is just frost but you will need to get to it. I will send photos and links in a moment, Thanks Sea Breeze

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.

Vegetable draw is freezing the vegetables


if you pull out the vegetable drawer, you will notice a vent on the left side in the back. get some tape ( I use aluminum tape ) and cover the bottom half of the vent, that will help keep your vegetables from freezing. that should solve your problem. Joe
