To the left of the bottom drawer is a veg/meat slide switch.make sure it is all the way on veg.if it is on meat,it opens a small doorway to the freezer and lets the cold air in and will freeze the food in the bottom drawer.in some cases,you will need to remove the drawer and shelf and then take apart the doorway.ball up some putty and jam it it the hole to completely seal it off

Food (vegetables, fruits) on the refrigerater side freezing


Your model has a control damper inside the vent. The damper opens and closes with changes in temperature. It has a pig tail spiral thermostat on the side and if it goes bad the door sticks open or closed. Sometimes it is just frost but you will need to get to it. I will send photos and links in a moment, Thanks Sea Breeze

Purchased in 2002 and is starting to freeze in the


Check the back of the fruit and vegi drawers. If theres a slot for an intake port try closeing it (if adjustable) Check thermostat setting for fridge and adjust to a lower setting.
Finally make sure door closes and seals closed, clean gasket with mixture of white vinegar and water (1 cup vinegar to 1 gallon warm water). If this fails internal thermostat may need replacing.

Fridge keeps freezing


Can't solve your problem, but just to report we have exactly the same issue, a huge block of ice forms on the upper rear panel. The compressor seems to be running 24h, not matter where the 'thermostat' is set.

I suspect that there was/are a faulty batch of thermostats. Or (since there is no metal cooling plate to bolt it to) that the T/Stat probe has somehow come adrift from its correct sensing area and is not correctly sensing the temperature inside the fridge.

If I get to the bottom of the problem, I will re-post here.
