SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Vegetable section too cold, freezing the vegetables

if youd like you can remove the affected crisper, locate the "adjustment slidelever" and remove it, behind there youll find a hole(which is what youve been restricting to lessen the cold air flow.) try wadding up a ball of perma-gum, window sealer, some sorta plug forthe hole, its not nessecary for function of refrig, only to make the crispers colder, but usually too cold. blocking of fthe hole willl make the crispers only as cold as rest of refrig

There is an opening at the back of the refrigerator that lets cold air into the meat drawer. Make sure the rubber boot on the meat drawer seals against the back of the fridge. If this doesn't help cover the hole with duct tape. You may need to readjust the thermostat.

Freezer in my refrigerator is not freezing some things like ice cream and ice pops solid


Get a freezer dial thermometer (about $5-10 at grocery or box store) and check the temperature, then adjust the freezer (NOT refrigerator) setting dial (usually just inside the top of the cold cut section) a number at a time colder and see how that changes the temperature.
Vegetables and ice cubes freeze hard at about 28-30 degrees F, so freezers are usually set at about 5-10 degrees F, and not above 15 for safety. However, ice cream that is high in cream content generally will be runny to about 25, and soft down to about 0-10, so you may need to set your freezer as low as zero degrees F.
The comment on cleaning the coils is very important - you should do that about yearly, or more often if you have shedding pets. Be gentle with them - you do not want to bend them, as they carry refrigerant fluid, and repairs are expensive. The coils can be under or on the back of the unit, and it is best to not only vacuum them out, but also to blow them out if possible before vacuuming - with compressed air hose if you have it, else with a cleaned-out shop vac on blow setting. Be sure after you blow it out that the fan (usually accessible from the back by removing a cardboard cover after disconnecting power) is not blocked by a clump of lint - it should spin freely. The compressor (roundish tank with wires and tubing coming out of it) should also be blown / brushed off, as lint accumulation makes it run hotter, which reduces freezing capacity.
Also - try putting your ice cream as low in the freezer unit as possible (cold air sinks), and as far back as possible so it does not warm up as much when you open the door. Side-by-sides are bad for this, because all the cold air pours out every time you open the door. You might also try packing something around the ice cream to reduce the effect of opening the door - like bags of frozen vegetables, for instance, or even a wrapped layer of cardboard (although that will also make it take longer to initially freeze).

Refrigerator compartment freezing


Experience tells me the design should maintain 40 -34 degrees in the refrigerator section when the freezer is between 0 and -10 You might check this if you have a thermometer for the job, and adjust the thermostat accordingly. Your unit may also have an airflow control (I didn't research) to adjust the refrigerator independent of the freezer.

Vegetables freezing


Most side by side refrigerators use the freezer to supply cold air to the refrigerator side. They use a duct through the wall between the two sides to let COLD air come into the refrigerator. That cold air will be blown upon the drawers at the bottom, where you are storing your vegetables.
There are two adjustments - or three, depending that will change how the air comes through. The freezer control will set the base temp for the freezer, and thus the temp of the air coming into the reefer to cool it down. The reefer can have a movable vane that increases or decreases the amount of air flowing in from the freezer, the vane being operated at the command of the refrigerator temperature control. Some have a movable plate that limits the flow of air on a fixed basis.
Set the freezer for 0F. Adjust the refrigerator setting, starting in the middle of the range, until a thermometer on a middle shelf, will read at 40F. Take your time, and check once an hour or so, to let it stabilize.
Make sure that you are not blocking airflow in the refrigerator, as the air must circulate to avoid too low a temperature in spots, such as you are experiencing.

Vegetables freeze in the vegetable drawer. Freezer is on lowest setting.


Make sure that you realise that 1 degree is colder than 2 degrees and therefore a setting of 3 - 5 degrees might solve your problem

Temperature


Lower numbers are warmer temps.  Get an outdoor thermometer and put it in the fridge.  It should read about 40 degrees F if you've left the door closed for an hour or so.  Don't worry about the freezer too much.  It should be at 0 F or so.  Generally, leaving the settings at 2 or 3 is right on most units.

Freeing food in refrigerator, even vegetables in vegetable tray


You have 2 dials in the refrigerator. One is the thermostat setting the cold temp in the freezer, the other is a damper that allows cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator. Set the thermostat to the middle then try closing down the damper, most say colder or warmer refrigerator. If the damper is closed and your refrigerator is still freezing, then I would guess that the thermostat is bad. A thermostat runs about 40 to 60 dollars wholesale. Retale should be about double.

Too cold in vegetable bins


Air flow ports adjusted correctly? Air flow fan running? I once had a bad temp sensor on the freezer coil that would not let the fan run.
