We recently lost power for 12 days and now that it is back on, I don't know what temperature the freezer and refrigerator should be set on to be correct. I have a sub zero 650 top/bottom and a sub zero side by side.

From your description, it sounds like your condensing coil is dirty and needs cleaning. You will probably find the coil and fan inside the back cardboard cover area. Once a condensing coil gets so dirty, the refrigerant condensed in the condenser is so hot that it does little cooling effect because of the internal heat consumes any refrigeration effect left in the refrigerant. This is vary common problem and especially for pet owner. The pet fur and hair get caught in condensing coil and block air flow.
Hope this helps
While there is some fluctuations in temperature in Dometics from night and day, but it is usally the reverse of what you state. Warmer in the day time when the unit is opened more. I would check the temperature settings and if they are correct then check the thermostat.
You said, you recently had a problem with my Candy fridge freezer (it defrosted overnight and wasnt cooling at all) and a repair
shop diagnosed a thermostat problem. I have replaced the thermostat,
Now the freezer freezes without any problems but the fridge does not go
cold at all.
Also the compressor is running constantly
This is my first thought
Fresh Food temperature is too warm. Freezer temperature is satisfactory. 1. Fresh Food control is set too warm. 2. Set fresh food control to a colder setting. Allow 24 hours for temperature to stabilize.
3.Then see if you do not have your freezer articles packed full up to the top, or covering the cold air vents usually found in the rear of the freezer compartment.
The fridge and the freezer share the cold air so the air must not be restricted from travel form the freezer to the fridge and back! This would also cause the compressor to run none stop trying to cool the fridge! So check your air vents in the freezer. I'll bet you did not know they were there ! Most of us never notice! Hope this works for you. Please let me know that one of these solutions worked for you! or if you have any questions. Thank You, huuum Please remember to leave a rating!
Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if
there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not
defrosting as it should.
bad defrost timer
bad defrost heater (in freezer)
bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice
melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if
is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above
