This box is the evaporator which provide cooling for the whole fridge. They will only freeze things solid that are easy to freeze. Don't count on it being like the normal freezer.

Can you tell me why please?


All the big cooling happens inside freezer compartment. Freezer gives little cool air to fridge compartment. Now when the vent blocks that little cold air cannot go into fridge compartment. Thus your freezer works good but not fridge compartment. Milk goes bad but frozen meet keeps good.....

Vent freeze up either due to defrost problemt, defrost drain line problem, Evaporator fan problem or even can be your damper motor not opening due to unit failure or frozen damper door.

if the flap was open then truely excessive cold air is coming out/escape from the freezer causing no freezeing. you need to defrost your fridge.

Note also that frost build up increases time to freeze your food on the freezer. it also causes your fridge an increase in electricity consumption.

defrost your fridge for some time ti remove the frost build-up.

The fridge has stoped workingbut the freezer is fine


if it starts working ok after the defrost then you might find it will build up ice again.
There might be a fault with a small device called a thermister that senses the ice build up for the defrost controller.

What most likely is happening is the ice build up freezes the fan that blows the cold air to the fridge compartment.and around the freezer.

The freezer works well but the fridge is not cooling.


Classic symptom of: the connection passageway between the freezer and the fridge compartment
has closed off - usually due to ice buildup - or something clogging/blocking the passageway.
Your Refrigerator works by releasing cold air into only the freezer, then this cold air passes thru
a passageway into the fridge compartment to cold (but not freeze) the fridge compartment contents.
If this passageway is blocked, then just the freezer works, and cold air never makes it into the
fridge compartment. In the old days, you'd be told to defrost your freezer, since the blockage
was ALWAYS caused by frost buildup. Today, we have frost-free freezers, and your freezer may
simply have too much stuff inside - there has to be some room to allow some air flow around
items in the freezer, and whichever item is blocking the air passage to the fridge compartment -
just move it away from the passageway opening.

Hi,my bosch f/f is freezing in the veg box and has a lot of ice under the last box in the freezer comp.What is the problem please?


In the back of your fridge you should see a hosepipe connected from the freezer's defrost water drain to the evaporating tray usually located on top of the compressor. The drain is blocked, hence you get ice on the bottom of freezer. The easiest way to clean it is to pull the hose pipe off the fridge outlet and clean the drain upwards with a piece of soft wire or electric cord or something similar. On my fridge (Bosch) I found the drain clogged with a kind of jelly like stuff. The other way to the drain is by removing back panel inside the freezer compartment but be careful, I sort of ripped mine off and broke plastic plugs on which it was fixed. Make sure you know what you doing.

Check the vents in the fridge side and close a little if you can. On the freezer side just for good measure>>>>
Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed
and PLEASE give a Thumbs Up for the effort. The Raz Shack

Top of freezer not freezing, bottom of fridge is?


Could be the evaporator fan motor is not working. This is what circulates the air from the freezer to the refrigerator section.

Freezer and ice maker quit working / The temp.display on the door is just flashing .


There may be a fan that moves cold air in the freezer and icemaker compartment(s).  If the fan freezes up the cold air will not circulate.  Since the fridge compartment is still cold it does not sound like a compressor problem.

check the damper controller at the center of the fridge. this regulates the air that is coming from the freezer dependent on the signal from the thermistor of the fridge compartment. that is the other thing to check. check it for rresistance and it should change as you change the temperature of the sensor.

i hope i was able to help;;
