Your baffle that controls the freezer temperature is possibly broken.  If you take the cover off the dials labeled "refrigerator/freezer" the baffle is a plastic arm that controls the amount of air circulation between the freezer and the refigerator. If the arm is broken is will stay closed completely blocking the air hole or vent.  I just wedged a small piece of wood or shim in mine and it hasn't frozen up since.

Good Luck.  I know how frustrating it can be to repeatedly defrost the ice build-up.

I have a Sharp Fridge-Freezer, model SJ-F78SP-BK. The Fridge compartment freezes. If left on overnight, everything will freeze as if it had been left in the freezer. Freezer is working fine.

Hi,

please increase the temperature in the fridge portion of your fridge as it sounds like you've set that compartments temperature too low.

Thank you.

Freezer working fine, Fridge is freezing everything on low settin

THERMOSTAT ON 90% OF SIDE/SIDE REFRIGERATOR IS LOCATED AT THE TOP OF THE FRIG COMPARTMENT .YOU KNOW, THE ONE THAT HAS OFF ON IT AND USUALLY NUMBERS. YOU WILL HAVE TO DROP THE PANEL TO ACCESS THE THERMOSTAT. ALSO NOTE THAT AN INDICATION OF A STUCK THERMOSTAT IS WHEN THE COMPRESSOR RUNS AND RUNS AND DOESN'T SHUT OFF.ALSO CHECK FREEZER TEMP TO SEE IF IT IS BELOW 0 DEGREES THAT ALSO INDICATES STUCK THERMOSTAT.

Hi I have a whirlpool (IKEA) CBI 651 fridge/freezer, the condensation drain on the back wall of the fridge part is not draining away the water. Have tried to clean it out with red 'widget' supplied with no...

Try pouring some boiling hot water down the drain. If anything blocks the drain even slightly it will slow down the water and then freeze it. Air temp in the freezer is 0 degrees or close to that. That small of a hole it freezes quick. I'm not sure of the style of fridge this is. Side by side or top mount freezer. You are able to get to all drain pipes. If not boiling water. A hand steamer works great too.

Ge refridgerator model gsl25jfpe bs

I have a gsl25jfpe bs ge regrigerator and the baffle motor that controls air flow from the freezer to the refrigerator is out. This had been causing everthing in the fridge to freeze and cause the water to stop working due to water freezing in the storage tank. The baffle is in the back top of the fridge covered with a plastic cover. Remove plastic cover to check baffle function.

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator too cold

On a fridge freezer only the fridge temperature is monitored. In a cold location the fridge might not even need cooling and the freezer would get too warm but the thing won't care.

If the fridge sensor sees it as too warm then it will keep the motor running and the first thing to get really cold is the freezer.

Remember the freezing part is not temperature controlled ion a fridgefreezer.
