Hi

Does the fridge section seem to be getting to cold as well?

Is there condensation building up on the underside of the shelves inside the fridge?

no but even with dial turned full up fridge seems cool

Expert:  Daniel T. replied 1 year ago.
Ok so if theres no condensation under the glass shelves and the drain hole isnt blocked then the water that is collecting on the bottom is caused by weak insulation in the liner between the fridge and freezer. As ice can form under the salad boxs and then melt and this creates the water you have there. As for water to collect there it can only be down to the drain hole blocked, Condesation forming under all the shelves or weak insulation in the liner between the fridge and freezer, Thats the only way water will get there inside a fridge.

But as you say the freezer is getting to cold in there then this may not help as the freezer starts cooling at te top section first and works its way down. So if its getting to cold in there then some of the cooling can be passing through the liner between the fridge and freezer and cause the water as well.

What you can try is replace the thermostat in there and see if this works. As this will stop the freezer getting to cold. But it may not cure the water in the fridge as if this is down to weak insualtion then theres nothing you can do as theres no access to this im afraid so its a new appliance.

So its up to you if you want to try the thermostat first as it will fix the freezer problem but may not the fridge. Its a complete gamble im afraid.
