Frigidaire is freezing everything

I've already had this lousy fridge fixed once costing me 160.00 Dollars and the same thing is wrong with it again 6 months later and now my food is freezing inside the refrigerator. Is there a permanent fix for this ice box or a recall to fix what keeps going out on it? Model #FRS23R4AW8 Frigidaire Side by Side Frost Proof Refrigerator freezing up inside, also noticed water underneath refrigerator and some inside. Turned off ice maker and refrigerator still freezing up and it is set on the lowest temperature. Is this something that we can fix ourselves.

    We have the same issue, no matter were we set the Non-froozen food temperature, it freeze it. Yet when I open the door and adjust the temp to see when it turns on and off, it seems correct. We also are plagued by the ice maker never working correctly and being replace and still not working correctly.

Make sure the light is going off when the door is in the closed position. Find the switch that the door makes contact with when it closes. If the light is not going out the heat from the light being on could cause such a problem.

Fridge is freezing....


The way you've stated your problem is confusing? The temperature is the freezer should be 5 degrees F or below, preferably at 0 degrees F. The refrigerator side should be anywhere from 34 - 38 degrees F, What exactly is the problem your having, fresh food not cooling but freezer works ok?

Kitchen aid KSRG25FKSS04 freezer is not freezing


Hello, few things to check:

1) Remove dirt / dust that has accumulated on the condenser coil located on the back of the fridge, or underneath. Use a vacuum to clean off with.

2) Remove dirt / dust in / around compressor area. Make sure you turn power off first as there are several areas in this area that can "bite."

3) Look for heavy frost / ice buildup in the freezer compartment. Defrost if necessary.

4) Make sure the fan is blowing in the freezer compartment.

5) Make sure there is air flow from the vent at the top of the refrigerator compartment. This air is driven by the fan in the freezer (most models).

6) Loading a lot of unfrozen food into the freezer compartment will have the appearance of the fridge going out, but is actually functioning normally as it removes heat from the food so it will freeze.

7) Your thermostat is not working correctly. Move it to the coldest setting if not already done so. Listen for the compressor to kick on. If it doesn't, bad t-stat.

Thanks

FRE196AS frigidaire fridge/freezer - fridge freezes everything!


Hello Nicola,
I suggest you contact Frigidaire in the UK, and explain the problem to them. I have included their website for you to do so. You can even call them. I checked with Frigidaire in the US and Customer Service tells me your fridge should not be failing at this point. Contact Customer Service and tell them how disappointed you are in the product; explain the issue; and insist they offer assistance to repair it. Frigidaire Customer Service here does not want to lose any customers, and that includes you. Be nice, but firm with them. I hope this helps you in some way. Let me know if I can further assist. Just trying to to help. :)

GE refrigerator is freezing everything.


I had that problem in my refrigerator and found out that it was coming from the freezer. The thermostat in the freezer broke and it was crazy freezing in the freezer part as well as freezing in the refrigerator. Once we replaced the thermostat everything was fine. It cost me $125
