Question about Admiral 26 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

The water filter keeps freezing and food in door and on shelves keeps freezing.

Admiral side-by-side fridge/freezer. I have recently experienced problems with food becoming too cold and freezing in the fridge compartments and door. The water filter also freezes up stopping the water supply in my ice/water dispenser, (ice still dispenses). I have removed the filter and defrosted it twice, and then runs ok, but seems to freeze up within a day or too. Any suggestions? Thanks.

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.

Water filter inside fresh food compartment keeps freezing up? Frigidaire brand 3-4 years old. Thanks, Steve.


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
Check the cold control, and also 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.

Hope this helpout....

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

Food freezing in fridge compartment in my side by side

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.

Food freezes in the fridge part even at the highest


If it is freezing, either you need to turn both temp down to 2nd to lowest setting. Cold air does sink, so that is why crisper gets colder. There is a flap and vent for air between the fridge and freezer. The flap can get stuck in one direction, or the acutator that moves it can become faulty. A leaky door seal will also make the opposite compartment colder.

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.

Freezing in refrigerator


Inside the fresh food compartment on top left there is something called an air baffle. It runs between the freezer and fresh food compartment and its purpose is to electrically control the amount of cold air coming from the freezer. Sometimes they freeze open and will not close. So you may need to turn off the refrigerator during the time you examine it. Look for ice blocking the movement of the baffle damper. Sometimes just one time clearing the problem is all you need to fix it. Let me know what you find and if you are able to get it going again, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Candy CPCA250 GB Freezer feezing but fridge not cold


Hello jonnyclewlow
Welcome,


You said, you recently had a problem with my Candy fridge freezer (it defrosted overnight and wasnt cooling at all) and a repair shop diagnosed a thermostat problem. I have replaced the thermostat, Now the freezer freezes without any problems but the fridge does not go cold at all.
Also the compressor is running constantly

This is my first thought

Fresh Food temperature is
too warm. Freezer
temperature is satisfactory.

1. Fresh Food control is set too
warm.
2. Set fresh food control to a colder setting. Allow 24
hours for temperature to stabilize.

3.Then see if you do not have your freezer articles packed full up to the top, or covering the cold air vents usually found in the rear of the freezer compartment.

The fridge and the freezer share the cold air so the air must not be restricted from travel form the freezer to the fridge and back!
This would also cause the compressor to run none stop trying to cool the fridge!
So check your air vents in the freezer.
I'll bet you did not know they were there !
Most of us never notice!
Hope this works for you.
Please let me know that one of these solutions worked for you!
or if you have any questions.
Thank You, huuum
