Re: With the BevAir DW49 does a lower number mean colder...
In almost every case, turning the thermostat clockwise with be a colder setting. Most all Bev Air are like that. Turn know one number at a time and monitor the temps. You will be able to figure it out.

On my whirlpool refrigerator a higher number is colder. On the freezer section it is a-b-c with "a" being warmer and "c" being coldest.
Attached is a link to whirlpool manuals and troubleshooting. You will need the model number of your refrigerator or freezer. Manuals and Troubleshooting Whirlpool
Try turning the control all the way in one direction until the compressor stops. Wait five minutes and then turn to about half way like #5 on most. The closer to off is warmer and the further beyond is colder #5 is the typical setting to begin with. Off then 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10=> coldest, Sea Breeze
you can adjust the control for the freezer side to a colder setting think of the freezer control as a door warmer setting door open farther colder setting door farther closed the fridge control is electric that runs the compresser can turn fridge down to creat more cooling freezer or set freezer to colder setting it is a balancing
act have actually closed freezer control to coldest setting and had items freeze in the fridge side where air from freezer first enters fridge a lower temp in freezer should help ice production
Most controls work with the highest number being the coldest. Keep in mind that once you adjust that setting you should allow 24 hr for the refrigerator to "equalize" to it new set temp. Hope this helps
if your freezer can make ice and the ice is dry, the problem is simply air flow into the refig section. A very common cause for a service call that wasnt needed for reefers is the settings. One setting OFF 1-10 usually, operates the compressor. The remaining setting will say , for colder freezer or similar, It opens a little flapper door between the freezer and the fridge section. If you set that one to max or coldest freezer it will actually starve out the fridge section for air ,and you get a cold freezer and warmer box! It happens everytime someone has the problem , its too warm! they peg both controls to coldest! The compressor will coll the freezer sufficiently even if set to 1 and the fridge should be cool too if the setting isnt pegged to coldest setting thus closing down fridge air and making the freezer colder which isnt ever required!
