Electrolux Refrigerator Freezing Food

Refrigerators are an essential appliance in the modern home offering a convenient and reliable method of keeping food fresh for longer. But there are instances that the Electrolux refrigerator may cause more harm than good, especially when it comes to freezing food items. Frozen food can cause numerous problems, such as food spoilage or burning in the freezer, loss of flavor and texture. In this article, we will explore the causes behind why your refrigerator from Electrolux may be storing your food in freezers and the steps you can take to prevent it from occurring. We will also give guidelines on how you can properly arrange and store the contents of your Electrolux refrigerator to ensure your food remains tasty and fresh. You’ll save money, avoid food waste, and relish every bite whether you’re a professional chef or novice.

01 – Electrolux Refrigerator Thermostat for Temperature Control

Temperature control thermostat controls voltage to the motors of the compressor and fan for condenser and evaporator fan in the appropriate manner. If the thermostat for temperature control is not working properly it could cause the refrigerant system to run longer than is needed. This means that the Electrolux refrigerator may become too cold. To determine if the thermostat is malfunctioning, move it from its lowest setting to its highest setting and check for a click. If the thermostat makes a click, it is not likely defective. If the thermostat is unable to click, use a multimeter to examine the thermostat for continuity. Replace the thermostat if it does not remain in a continuous setting.

02 – Electrolux Refrigerator Thermistor

The thermistor keeps track of the temperature of the air and relays the temperature reading to the control board. Based on the temperature readings taken by the thermosistor, the control board regulates the power supply to the compressor fan and evaporator fans. The fan and compressor could run too often if the thermistor is damaged. The refrigerator may become too cold because of this. To determine if the thermistor is defective, test it with the aid of a multimeter. The Electrolux refrigerator’s temperature is likely to cause the resistance of the thermistor to change. If the thermistor resistance does not change or if the thermistor fails to have continuity, replace the thermistor.

03 03 Electrolux Refrigerator Main Control Board

The control board itself could be inoperable. However, the control panel is usually not the cause of the problem. Before you replace the control board, make sure to check all components that are most likely to be in a state of deficiency. If none of these components is defective, you should consider replacing the main control panel.

04 – Electrolux Refrigerator Temperature Control Board

The temperature control board sends voltage to the motors of the fan and compressor. The control board may not provide enough current to the compressor as well as fan motors. The refrigerator from Electrolux is likely to become cold. Control boards can be misdiagnosed. Before replacing the control board examine all the frequently defective components. Replace the temperature control board, if the temperature control boards aren’t in good condition.

2005 – Electrolux temperature set too cold

Adjust the Electrolux refrigerator temperature control to more warm setting. There are many models that have temperatures that are set generally between 34-38 degrees Fahrenheit. Allow 24 hours for the temperature setting to take effect.

06 – Electrolux Refrigerator Fan Motor

The Electrolux refrigerator’s fan motor draws air from cold coils, and then cools it. The chilled air is circulated through the Electrolux freezer and refrigerator compartments to ensure that the temperature remains low enough to preserve food. If the evaporator fan motor is damaged, the cold air from the freezer or refrigerator evaporator coils can migrate through the air ducts, which can then reach the bottom of the refrigerator and freeze food items. If you want to determine if the blades are freely spinning, you can test rotating the blades of the fan. If they’re not spinning freely, the motor bearings could be seized. A multimeter can be used to test for electrical continuity. If the motor does not have electrical continuity, then the part won’t run and a new motor must be installed.

07 – Food items that are too close to the vents

There should be enough space between the food items and air vents. Certain foods can be frozen when placed directly in front the cold air vent.

08 08 Electrolux Refrigerator Damper

To allow the right quantity of chilled air to get into the Electrolux refrigerator, the damper opens and closes. If the damper is not open, it’ll let excessive cold air in the refrigerator. The refrigerator made by Electrolux will become too cold. Examine the damper to determine whether it’s damaged or stuck open.

09 09 Electrolux Refrigerator Damper Control Assembly

To ensure that the fridge compartment is cooled to the proper temperature The air damper control is opened and closed. If the damper does not close correctly, it will allow the cold air too easily into the refrigerator. The damper’s control should be checked to see if it’s broken or has become stuck open.

10 10 Electrolux Refrigerator defrost Thermostat

The temperature of the evaporator coils are monitored by the defrost thermostat located on the Electrolux refrigerator. If the coils are at a set temperature and the thermostat contacts close, it is to allow power to flow to the defrost heater during the defrost process. A faulty defrost thermostat may not allow voltage to reach the defrost heater, resulting in the Evaporator coils becoming frosted, leading to an interruption in air flow and cooling. Multimeters are able to test for continuity of electrical power in order to determine whether the thermostat is defective. Replace the thermostat if the device does not maintain continuity at the lower temperatures of its operating range.
