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.
What is it? A single door or a double door unit. If a single door, what temperature does it go down to? lower than 0 deg. c or +/- 3 to 5 deg. c In other words, lower than o it is a freezer. Above 1, it is a fridge..
It sounds like the thermostat is not sensing when the fridge/freezer reaches it's set temperature.This will result in the compressor running non-stop and this causes ice build-up inside the fridge.See on what number (0-7) the thermostat is set on.If it is set on 7,turn it down to 3 and see if it makes a difference.If there is no difference it means that the thermostat is not sensing & switching the compressor off.You will then have to replace the thermostat.
you know where you adjust the temperature of your fridge. its a knob with a line that increase in thickness. or it may have numbers written on it. before you replace it. try adjusting that knob to set it to a higher temp. please if your taking the covers off the replace thermostat,, please turn the power off first.
