why do my vegetables freeze in the refrigerator

[Solution] 1. Food in The CoolSelect Zone
To prevent your fruit and vegetables from freezing, try one of the following: If you have CoolSelect Zone, make sure you have not stored your fruit and vegetables in the CoolSelect Zone Pantry. If the fruit and vegetables are stored in the If cool Select Zone Pantry, move them to one of the Vegetable and Fruit Drawers. Raise the temperature in your refrigerator. The ideal temperature setting is 38 F (3 C). 2. Food On The Shelves Is Too Cold To keep food from freezing on your refrigerator shelves, try the following: Б Set the refrigerator control to a warmer setting. The ideal temperature setting for your refrigerator is 38 F (3 C). If you have set it colder than that, your food can freeze. Б Move the food to a warmer part of the refrigerator. If the food has high water content and you have stored it in the coldest part of the refrigerator, it can freeze. Б ncrease the temperature in your kitchen. A kitchen that is too cold can cause the temperature in your refrigerator drop below what it should be. 1.

Б If the fruit and vegetables are stored in the Cool Select Zone Drawer, move them to one of the other drawers. Б If you are storing the fruit and vegetables in the upper fruit and vegetable drawer, move them to the lower drawer. To keep food from freezing in your refrigerator, try the following: Б Set the refrigerator control to a warmer setting. The ideal temperature setting for your refrigerator is 38 F (3 C). If you have set it colder than that, your food can freeze. Б Move the food to a warmer part of the refrigerator, away from the vents or the rear of the refrigerator. If the food has a high water content and you have stored it in the coldest part of the refrigerator, it can freeze. Б Increase the temperature in your kitchen. A kitchen that is too cold can cause the temperature in your refrigerator drop below what it should be. 2. Food In the Produce Drawers Is Too Cold To prevent your fruit and vegetables from freezing in the produce drawers, try one of the following: Б If you have CoolSelect Zone, make sure you have not stored your fruit and vegetables in the CoolSelect Zone Drawer.


If the fruit and vegetables are stored in the Cool Select Zone Drawer, move them to one of the other drawers. Б Raise the temperature in your refrigerator. The ideal temperature setting is 38 F (3 C). Б If you are storing the fruit and vegetables in the upper fruit and vegetable drawer, move them to the lower drawer. [Important Reminders] Increase the temperature in your kitchen. A kitchen that is too cold can cause the temperature in your refrigerator drop below what it should be. The freezer has the refrigeration coils (evaporator coils). This is where the coldest temperatures are. The fresh food compartment on the refrigerator has no coils. (Older refrigerators may be built with coils in the fresh food compartment and/or a top freezer that needs to be defrosted by hand). A refrigerator depends completely on air flow inside the box. The cold air has to be circulated into the fresh food compartment in order to bring it down to the correct temperature.


When the fresh food compartment reaches the desired temperature, the compressor is turned off and the refrigerator stays off until the temperature in the fresh food compartment rises. The thermostat that controls this on off feature of the compressor is called a cold control. While the weather is warmer, the temperature in the fresh food compartment might be a little high in the top of the refrigerator. This increased temperature may require the freezer compartment to become colder than usual. On a side-by-side refrigerator freezer, the air flows through a vent door at the top of the fresh food compartment and then flows back into the freezer in the bottom of the freezer. The cold can flow back into the bottom of the refrigerator. Blocked Air If the air is blocked at the top or closed off, then the refrigerator will have to run for much longer and the freezer temperature will fall to low levels. When the refrigerator turns off, the air from the freezer can transfer to the bottom of the refrigerator, causing very cold temperatures and freezing the vegetables and fruits stored in the crisper.


Blocked air flow can result in a similar problem. Be sure that the vents are not blocked in the refrigerator or the freezer section. A bag of peas in the freezer can fall next to the lower bin and completely obstruct the air flow. A Refrigerator's Two Control Knobs There are generally two controls knobs in a refrigerator, one is for cold control and that is the thermostat, and the other knob adjusts the air flow between compartments. The air flow should be set to a central location to start. If it is set to one extreme end of the scale, too low or too high, the air exchange may be wrong. If you think that the controls have been reset mistakenly, set them both for a mid range and allow the refrigerator to adjust to the new settings for 24 hours. Avoid excessive opening and closing the refrigerator during that time. Write down the final temperatures. Successive settings will have to be compared to this setting. If everything in your refrigerator is freezing and it is more like a freezer than a refrigerator and the controls seem to be set at some mid point, then it is likely that this problem is not caused by air flow problems.
