Food freezing in frig

My food is freezing in the refrigerator. I have the temp set low (2) and it is still freezing. Even the vegetables in the drawers are freezing. I made sure the vents in the freezer were not blocked, but that didn't seem to help. I have a GE Profile side by side. It is 6 years old. Not sure if it is the same model nbr as shown.

    Same thing. Vegetables freeze..

  • vavoom Feb 06, 2008

    I have an Amana with freezer on the bottom and the vegetable crisper freezes my veggies regularly, so I will try the suggestions listed and hope I will also save some energy.. most of the reasons seem to do with the freezer working over time and then the air from the freezer is blown into the fridge..
    I will report back if it works! And any further info is appreciated!

I HAD same problem. Had another problem that I didn't believe was related; water dispenser intermittent. I had no luck reading here, so I went after the intermittent water problem. Read all about water line heater modifications, cleaning the water line, then I found something about blocking the vent from the freezer to the frig, just to the left of the veggie bin.
I removed my veggie bin and found lots of ice on the exterior of the bin, left back edge, adjacent to a vent blowing cold air from the freezer. Guess what behind bin-a reservoir for the cold water. I put painters tape over the vent hole. and returned the frig temp back to 5 from 2. No frozen vegies, no intermittent water, freezer fine too.

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

Vegetable and meat draws freezing everything [email protected] deg. f.

Turn your thermostat down. If all the rest of the food was even 45 degrees, it would be okay. The vetable and meat drawers will always be colder, so you set the level for the rest of the fridge at what is tolerable.

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

Vegetable and fruit crisper drawers freezing foods

You have a defective thermistor and damper control in the fresh food or a bad control board.
Check the thermistor first.
Also, adjust the return air damper at the bottom left side of the fresh food sction to warmer.

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.

Fridge area freezing food; water dispensor line freezing

sometimes when the cooler weather comes in you may need to chnge temp setings to a warmer setting to prevent some items from freezing ie: leafy vegetables, water bottles, eggs, etc etc.

now if you are having total freeze up of everything in the ref section then you could have bad temp control or damper assy.
