    Check if the milk is expired and also check the temperature of the fridge.

    Your thermostat in the refrigerator is possibly either set too high or it is faulty.

    Clean your fried & disinfect it. Next set your milk on the top shelf against rear wall. This should be the coldest place. As that I were the coil is. This may be different on some refrigerators. Set temp so back wall there just gits ice on it.

    check the temp of the fridge. Your fridge should be between 39 and 35 degrees.

    DO NOT keep it in the door in those milk slots. It gets too warm there.

    ALSO don't let the kids drink from the jug

    A refrigerator will slow down spoiling, but there are a few things that increase spoiling.

    1) Refrigerator contains other rotting things, full of bacteria and needs to be emptied and cleaned with bleach and throw out anything spoiled.

    2) Temperature too high. 1C to 4C, about 33 or 34F to no more than 40F. Frequently opened and closed is hard to keep stable. High room temperatures affect when door is open. An empty one is less stable than full.

    3) Milk as purchased. Maybe it is already old or mis-stored and ages faster than its date.

    The fridge only prolongs how long it lasts, it wont make it last forever.

  • The only way to preserve it is to completely freeze the molecules inside, but that would probably damage enzymes.

    The fact that it is able to rot in the refrigerator is because the stuff inside milk is still aging
