Too cold in bottom section

Hi

Our fridge appears to be faulty - the lower section is now part freezing items such as tomatoes

Any ideas?

PS - I have adjusted the internal control that I assume controls the temperature

    I am having the same problem too. Very frustrating because when I turn the control to lower setting so my produce does not freeze the items on the middle and top shelves get too warm. Of course this did not happen until the 1 year warranty expired.

    I have the same problem with my side by side. The veggies are freezing and the top shelf is warm.

Had the same problem and referred to another post regarding ice build up around the evaporator coils in the freezer unit. I had no ice build up but flat foil guard had dropped down across the freezer outlet which caused more cold air to be forced up into the lower section of the fridge. This caused the freezing of the vegetables.
Follow barkbugs steps first www.fixya.com/support/t970724-fisher_paykel_fridge_freezer and see if that is the problem.
Also while starting to remove items from the freezer check to see if something has moved back and is blocking the air vent. Even a packet of food may cause enough blockage. A slicker pad was also part of our problem.

I have a whirlpool s20brsb21 and all to often everything freezes in the fridge compartment for no reason


Make sure that the fin tubes on the back are not loaded with dust, clean off and don't over load the freezer section. If there is no room for air flow the temperature will keep getting colder to compensate for low air circulation, thus freezing items in the lower section.

Fridge does not get cold during propane gas function only. Upper Freezer section does. Whole unit does perform and freeze and cold function fine with electric and generator function. Why only during...


According to the manual the following is the most likely items to cause that failure. But since it is only in the frigerator section and not the freezer section it could be the lower circuit board.


LP Gas


Orifice


Flue Baffle


Flue Tube


Burner


Lower Circuit Board

FREEZING REFRIGERATOR


Hello Pam, Welcome to FixYa. In actuallity most fridges whether they are side by side, conventional top mount, or bottom mount, the control for the fridge section is nothing more than a damper which allows or prevents air flow through the fridge section. The thermostat which control the "run time" or actual temperature is the freezer control. It is possible to set the fridge control at "1" and yet still have items feeze because the freezer control is set to "3", "5", or higher. Try adjusting the freezer control to a lower number as well and see what that yields. You may also want to vacuum out your condensor coils under the unit...( unplugging the power cord first of course ;) safety first ) this too can cause items to freeze in the fridge section. Without getting too deep into how it all works I'll just say it effects the entire system negatively. Hope you find this an acceptable solution and can take a moment to rate it accordingly. Thank you for visiting FixYa and please let me know if you require further assistance. macmarkus :)

What is your refrigerator cold setting? Try lowering the temp to to the medium setting.

Items in the lower part of the fridge will freeze if the setting is too high. (P.S. Cold air "sinks" so the lower part of the fridge will be colder. Cutting the "number" setting on the fridge does stop air flow though.

Hotpoint fridge - temperature problem


Somewhere there's another knob that controls the position of a damper that balances cold between the freezer and the refrigerator. Despite where the knob is, the thermostat is probably controlling the freezer temp. The damper controls how much cold from the freezer gets to the refrigerator.

You need to adjust that knob to divert less cold air into the refrigerator section.

It's also possible the damper has gotten stuck and can't be moved, in which case you may need a repair tech.

Adjust the freezer damper to a higher number to reduce cold air flow to the fridge section. This will eliminate freezing in the fresh food section.

There is an internal door between the fridge and freezer section that allows the freezer air to enter the fridge side to keep the fridge cold. Sounds like the internal door is stuck open. Steve
