We have the exact same issue with our refrigerator .... its maddening. It appears to be related to loading in the refrigerator and covering the vents that feed cold air from the freezer compartment into the refrig. We a very careful about where we place things and run the refrig at higher than nominal to avoid the problem as much as possible.

How to freeze apricots


Before freezing, be sure you clean them thoroughly and avoid using any apricots that are damaged. Once apricots are washed and patted dry, cut them in half and remove the pits. Then slice them as you would slice peaches or any other similar fruit.

Boil a medium sized pot of water and dip the slices for about 30 seconds to prevent the skins from toughening, then place in strainer and run under cold water. From this point, freezing them may be done a few different ways, but the most important part is to be sure to include ascorbic acid to keep the apricots from turning brown.

One of the more common ways is to freeze them in a syrup. To make a simple syrup just add one cup of water with one cup of sugar to a pot. Heat and stir until all sugar dissolves. You will need about a half cup of syrup for each pint container you plan to fill with apricots. Then, add 1/8 teaspoon of the ascorbic acid to every cup of syrup.

Pour half of your syrup into a pint sized container you intend to freeze, then layer the apricot slices into the container, leaving about half an inch of space at the top, as the liquid will expand during the freezing process. After that, close the container, label it if preferred, and freeze it!

With this process, frozen apricots should keep for about 18 months if left in the freezer. Best of luck!

PSC23NSTESS FREEZING VEGTABLES


Side by Side ModelsIf foods, such as fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator are freezing, it can be caused by several things. First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If food in the bottom of the refrigerator is freezing, this could be caused by a refrigerator not having enough food to absorb the cold air.
  • If food in the door is freezing, move the door bins up or down so they are one notch away from freezer vents (Side by Side models only).
  • The fresh food control should be at the normal setting of 5.

First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenehit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Since the cold air coming into the fresh food section originates in the freezer above, the rear of the top shelf will be the coldest spot in the fresh food area. Avoid placing delicate items that freeze easily on the back half of this shelf.
  • If food is freezing in the produce (fruits and vegetables) or meat pan, it may be that the temperature controls are not set high enough. Since cold air naturally falls, the pans can get too cold if the refrigerator is not running long enough to maintain good air circulation. Adjust both controls up one notch.

Is there a large selection of freeze-dried foods?


Huge! You can find almost anything you want that has been freeze-dried, you just have to know where to look. Many companies now carry not only the basics (fruits, vegetables, protein); they have become very creative and learned to freeze-dry items like milk, full gourmet meals and even ice cream.

My refrig is freezing items on the refrig side.


likely a bad temperature control. also, some model GE's have a bad fresh food inlet cover, that fails to cutoff airflow from the freezer.

Items in the back of the refrigerator freeze.


is this something that has just started happening? Most kenmore top freezers have a vent that allows cold air from the freezer into the refrig through a vent located on the back wall in the center of the refrig section. if packages are pushed up under this vent they can freeze. 

If you have widespread freezing in the refrig setion then a temperature control could be the fault. thanks for using fixya. Peyton..

Sub-Zero 550 water leak and freezing


Seems to be a common problem with these units. You can get a drain tube heater ( got mine from an online refrigerator parts distributor), though may not totally solve problem. Some suggest running a copper wire through tube - supposed to conduct just enough heat to keep tube from freezing.
