I don't know about your fruit developing problem, but the other day I turned on the re-circulating button and there was good cold air coming out. The A/C dash light wasn't on, the A/C highlight on the touchscreen wasn't on either.
Let it run like that for a minute, turned on A/C ( with dash button), same cold air came out, turned off A/C ( definitely warmer air), hit re-circ button and just normal air now
. Oh well.
Temp outside - low 90's
