If you kep the door shut and look at the the side of it is there any gaps inbetween the seal and the fridge?
Only at the bottom corner. But it has always been like that. We've had the spilt in the rubber door seal for a while.
The door seal will be fine. Even though its split this wont cause the problem you are having this will be down to the thermostat in the machine thats gone faulty.
That will be why its frezzeing things in there.
What is the part number for the thermostat and approximately, how much do they cost?
Can you post the model number please and i can find out for you.
Model is CFMF 235 A-80
Your machine is controled by a thermistor which is wired to the control board then goes up the back of the appliance.
Click below for the part.
I've just found the following item online please see below), which says that the fault is with the insulation.... This also comes from your site. So is it the thermostat or the insulation?

This isnt a thermostat fault im affarid.
What you need to check is that the fridge setting isnt to high.
If it is turn it down a bit and see how it goes.
if thats fine then its usually the insulation thats starting to fail
inbetween the fridge and frezzer. When this happens theres not much
that can be done im affarid its a new machine.
if you need any more info just get back to me.

So is it just the salad drawers that freezeing up or the whole fridge
IE shelfs or the back wall?
The back wall has frost on it and the lower shelf and the salad drawer freezes up. The top shelf appears to be ok. Although it has frozen milk which has been in the fridge door.
Ok your problem will the thermistor as the above you listed was only freezeing the salad drawer.
But from what you are saying its the thermistor as its freezeing the milk and the shelfs.
In my first note I said 'The fridge is freezing everything in it'. The fridge freezes the lower part of the fridge, including the salad drawer and the milk in the door. There is frost/ice on the back wall of the fridge.So from your last reply, are you saying that it is the thermostat because it freezes the milk in the door?
I will go with the thermistor as its more likely to be the problem on your appliance.
Ok. Thanks for your help.
