How long has the filter been in? Have you had any problem with things freezing in the fresh food side?

I have seen cracks in filters and cracks in the filter holder.

I did notice that the diffuser had ice on it and that the refrigerator side temp was down to 33 degrees so that tells me that either they lowered the temp or the diffuer gone bad customer replaced filter I called back this am and she tells me the temp is 37 degrees told her to keep an eye on it if it goes back down again i am replacing the diffuser the filter craked because it froze anyway i will keep you posted thanks a lot and have a nice day

This summer I have had a GE and a Frigidaire crack the filter because they froze. The GE ran water all over the kitchen and living room before they caught it.

I usually find cracked filters due to age, but the last one was clearly frozen... FF door upper hinge loose on a SxS causing the door to not close fully. Warm air entered all the time causing continuous running of the FF side. This froze and cracked a brand new filter, in a brand new unit.
