1 is warmest and 5 is coldest. set to 3 and just see if that gives you a reasonable temperature. fridge temp should be about +4degC and freezer temp about -18degC

My mrf335 fridge is too cold even in stand 1.


I can't find your model listed anywhere, could you confirm the model number?

Either way, you'll want to check your temperature settings on the fridge. If there's a dial in the fridge, make sure it's not set too low.

I have an Amana BX21VW refrigerator and both the freezer and refrigerator stopped cooling. The fan is still going and there is power, but no cooling of any kind. What is going on?


Hi!!

Check

Temp. control knobs,

Most likely, the evaporator coil is covered w/ice, obstructin the air flow thru it and to the fridge side of the unit.

Remove freezer back panel (where the little fan is) and check for iced evaporator coil, if so, unplug unit and use a heat gun or hair dryer to melt ice, make sure all ice is melted andthe air duct going to the fridge is clear.

Once this is done, restart unit and set temp. 1/3 of the dial, ie. if the dial goes from 0-9, set it on 3. wait 24 hrs to make adjustments

Keep me posted!! Rate this post!!!

My fridge keeps freezing how do i change the temp settings


Hi!!

You didn't mentioned brand and model of your fridge, so I will give you a general answer.

Usually the controls are in the fridge compartment, either on the right or back upper wall. Usually is one control for the freezer and another for the fridge. The normal settings should be about 1/3 of the dial's range, ie. If dial have 9 numbers, the setting should be between 3 and 4, depending on use and outside temp.

Wait 24 hrs. between adjustments to allow the system to stabilize.

.NOTE:
The Freezer Temp. Dial is the main temp. controller, if you set it too low, it may not have time to cool fridge side properly.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!!

Defy Fridge temperature dial is confusing - which way is colder?


0 = off, 1 = cool, 2 = cooler, ..... 7 = coldest.  0 - 7 Nothing to do with the degree the fridge is set to.

Correct operating temperatures


I run my own aplliance shop out of my house and we set them at (freezer about a 5 6 depending how many numbers you have on the dial) and the fridge should be set higher like a 7 8. try to keep them about two mubers apart. It also will varie on how much food you have in the fridge too. Hope this helps :)

I don't know how to set the temperature setting on my Hotpoint RLAV21 fridge. The dial goes from 0 to 4. For fridges I have had in the past the higher the number the colder the fridge but I've got my...


You should have 2 dials one is the thermostat when you set it all the way one direction it will shut you refrigerator off. Turn it back to about the middle if there are no numbers. The other dial is the air damper between the freezer and the refrigerator. The fan circulates the air through refrigerator by this damper. If you open this open to much your food in the refrigeration section will freeze. Close it back to about 2 that will give you a colder freezer and should be about right for the refrigeration section.
