Admiral SAC224 fridge freezer: fridge intermittently freezes up

I've had an Admiral SAC224 side-by-side fridge-freezer for 2 years, and every now and then, everything in the fridge freezes up. Ice cold air gets blasted in through the vent in the top left-hand corner of the fridge, everything in the top couple of shelves in particular freezes solid (down to -5C today!), and all the vegetables get cold damaged. Very annoying. After a day or two, it returns to normal. I thought it might be to do with the icebox getting too full, but I keep a close eye on it now, and the problem is still occurring. Any idea why this might be happening, and what I can do to prevent it? Many thanks.

To Whiteorchid,

Found a fix for my issue ... hopefully it'll help you.
Up at the topleft rearmost corner of the fridge remove panel to reveal spring attached slots where cold is supplied from freezer. The spring attached had came off one end as there isn't a "slot" for the spring to hold in place (design fault?).Reattached the spring and taped on .... and hey presto fridge now working perfectly again. Hope this helps.

I have an admiral gc2224gekb side by side. The ice machine isn't producing ice and also the fridge is freezing up


First, check to see if the airflow is blocked at the back of the fridge compartment as this also may cause the lower items to freeze. Fridge freezing is usually the malfunction of the damper swing door or the circuit controlling it. A failure of the temperature sensor in the fridge could be the cause. We just had ours replaced this year [on extended warranty]

Admiral american fridge freezer constantly blowing cold air into fridge compartment.


Changing the freezer settings won't really make a difference because regardless its still going to be freezing. The way the machine works is the freezer cools the fridge, and there should be a control in the fridge that operates the baffles in the airway between the freezer and fridge and reduces the amount of air that enters into the fresh food section.

Side by side Admiral freezer freezes but fridge


check the damper vent door between the refrige and freezer and make sure its opening up to let cold air from freezer into the refrige,sometimes they freeze up and cant open and close when called upon to do so,if so deice it with a hair dryer,the side being hot is good telling you the compressor is operating correctly

Everything in fridge freezes intermittently


Your vent has and electronic vent controlled by a setting on the control board. The electronic vent or circuit board are most likely the reason for the problem.
