SOURCE: Vegetable and fruit crisper drawers freezing foods

I had the same problem. Apparently the problem is the main control board. According to the technician that came out to fix mine there is a design flaw and these boards are very sensitive and can blow a circuit or malfunction from the slightest power surge. What happens then is that the control board doesn't "tell" the fan to turn on and off at the right time so the fridge and freezer warm up too much before the fan kicks in and then it cools everything down but since the fan isn't running at the correct intervals and circulating the air all of the cold air settles to the bottom which causes the produce in the drawers to freeze while the top shelves get warmer. I had done a fair bit of research before calling GE and came to the conclusion that this was a common problem. So I pressed them and was able to get the fee for the part waived (before I made the service call appointment) which was around $150. The part now has a 5 year waranty which I find funny, because I'm not sure why it wouldn't have that upfront as my refridgerator is only 2 years old. Whatever!! Unfortunately, unless you have indepth knowledge of refridgerator repair there is no way around the service call and labor. Anyone buying a new model of refridgerator (any company) should consider an extended waranty. The service tech also told me that all refridgerators made after 2001 are required, by law, to have an electronic mother board which in all likelyhood will fail at somepoint prior to when you are ready to buy a new fridge!

Good Lucak!

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: why do vegetables freeze in the vegetable drawer?

Have you put a good thermometer in the refrigerator, let it sit there for an hour or so without opening the door and then checked the temperature? If you're near 32 degrees, you've found the problem. Temperature uniformity is usually a problem in refrigerators...thus the fans, but ideally the temp should be in the mid 30's (34-38 degrees) rather than low 30's or you'll be freezing someplace

GE monogram refrigerator climate control drawer is not sealing and won't work properly causing fridge to go crazy!

Question edited for spelling.
Question moved from Cars and Trucks to GE Refrigerator.

You need a service call to replace the sealing gasket. The whining is probably the fan at the back of the drawer. If the knocking is the compressor, the fridge likely needs a refrigeration gas top up.

Monogram DISP480DXASS jack hammer noise behind the Climate Control Drawer.

By the way you discribe it, it sounds like it's going into defrost mode check and make sure freezer side isn't iced over or that the drain isn't iced over if it's a side by side drain should be at the very bottom of freezer side usually hidden behind a piece of plastic if it's a top and bottom the drain will in the freezer very back bottom also hidden hope this helps

This is known as the CZT or Climate Zone Technology fan and if you direct wire it and it does not run, replace.
This is the cold zone fan which supplies cold air to the meat and crisper drawers.

Hello, This problem is going to be the cold control, this can be located in the control panel inside the fridge. This part is also called the thermostat. What is happening here is it has opened and the freezer is getting to cold which is making the fridge too cold. This is why the food in your fridge is freezing. You should replace the cold control and you will be all set. Mike
