Correct temperature for freezer & fridge

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.

What shld settings be as food is freezing in fridge it has side by side knobs saying colder mid less cold it is a westinghouse fan forced frost free freestyle unit


The settings are "relative". Someone with this fridge in Montana may need to run the same fridge with different settings than someone in Texas to get the same temperatures.

Many manufacturers recommend that the fresh food compartment should be 34 degrees F, and the freezer -10 to 0 degrees F. To set this properly, place a thermometer in the freezer (that can display temperatures as low as the desired temperature). Adjust the thermometer for the correct freezer temperature before going on to the fridge. A fully stocked freezer could take 12 hours or more for temperatures to stabilize after making changes to the thermostat. Once the -10 to 0 degree temperature has been achieved, set the fresh food compartment temperature.

Place a thermometer (that can display below freezing) in a 6 (or so) oz flexible plastic cup of water and place on a shelf in the fridge. A glass of water could break if the temperature gets below 32 degrees if the water turns to ice. The water acts as a buffer to rapidly changing temperatures when the door is opened to read the thermometer. If the fridge is "full", allow 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize before making changes.

If the fridge and freezer are empty, changes may be seen in just a few hours or less. Otherwise, wait the 12 / 24 hours for the freezer / fridge compartments.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Just bought a Dometic DM2862 fridge. Freezer on goes down to 12 deg. and lower unit down to 38 deg., but during day the temps are: freezer - 22 deg. and lower - 44 deg. Is this normal? Can I fix this?


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.

We lost power last night and it came back on our digital display onthe fridge just has one dash and will not allow me to set temperatures


When the freezer is below -12 degrees, you will not be able to set the temperature.
Should be ok after a period of up to 3 hours.
Hope this helps

Fridge is warm, freezer works.


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.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. 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 items.
