My refrigerator is too cold so my fruits and vegetables are freezing in my refrigerator.

If foods in the fresh food section of your refrigerator are freezing, check the following things to see if it is something you can fix yourself or if your refrigerator requires service.

  1. First, check the controls to make sure the refrigerator is set to the proper temperature.

    • If your model has a knob or dial temperature control try reducing it 1 number at a time until you see some effect. 

    • On models with a digital display, the proper fresh food temperature is between 34 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.

    • On some models the back wall is the evaporator (part that gets cold ie. below freezing) and any food close to or touching the back wall will freeze. Try moving your food away from the back wall, closer to the front of the refrigerator.
    • For model specific information, consult your owner's manual.
