Fridge Is Freezing Everything. What Does It Mean?

The main task of the refrigerator is to cool, thereby keeping food fresh. if  your fridge suddenly started to freeze more than necessary, the result will be diametrically opposite: the excessive cold will cause the food to freeze. If instead of fresh tomatoes you suddenly found ice-cold tomatoes or something else turned into a snow sculpture – it’s time to call San Diego Appliance Repair Company!

The ideal fridge temperature is between 37°F (3°C) and 40°F (5°C) This is quite enough to make the food feel great.


Why Is Your Refrigerator Compartment Overfreezing?

  • Thermostat failure

If the capillary tube of the thermostat is exposed to moisture, the metal will corrode, resulting in depressurization, the freon in the bellows will escape and the thermostat will not turn off. In this situation, repairing the thermostat will not help – it should be replaced with a new one.

  • Sensor temperature sensor failure

If your refrigerator is electronically controlled, it is most likely an electronic temperature sensor. It fails because moisture has entered the sensor or the factory has used poor quality materials to manufacture the sensor.

  • Freon leak

It happens that the refrigerator runs continuously and does not turn off and thus the temperature drops. This can also be due to a freon leak!

  • Capillary tube clogging

A refrigerator with a top freezer has a capillary tube clogging more often than refrigerators with a bottom freezer.


The purpose of the refrigerator is to keep the temperature low enough to store food. If your refrigerator does not cool, but over-freezes, it means that your refrigerator does not work properly. In this case, it is necessary to call San Diego Appliance Repair Company for diagnostics and repair.
