What are the settings supposed to be on this refrigerator?

I have the freezer on initial setting and the refrigerator side on initial setting. Is this where it should be? My husband cut the freezer part down and it quit making ice. Then I cut it back up to initial setting and it seems to be making the ice and seems a lot colder in the frig part. Just wanted to know if the setting are about where they need to be. I know there is something about air flow. It seems to run all of the time and always has. Thanks.

Keep it set at the factory initial settings. you can turn them up but i would not recommend any lower. for proper food storage temps.

What is freezer and refrigerator temperature suppose to be set on


If you want to set the temperature your Fridge/Freezer should maintain, you need to set the Freezer to between -19c and -23c, however if you will be keeping Ice-cream in this freezer then it's best to set the base temp @ -21c minimum, -23 preferable, or the ice cream may begin to break down (very slowly I might add). The Fridge needs to be set to a maximum Highest temp) of 5c, any higher and the food will not stay as fresh and bugs will be able to breed, preferable temp is approximately 3-4c.

I have a GE side by side refrigurator model Gss201epc ww serial Tf220054 and am having a problem with stuff freezing in the crisper, I do not see any type of adjustment any ideas here? Thanks


initially, set the refrigerator compartment control at 5 and the freezer control at 5 and allow 12 hours for the temperature to stabilize.
Several adjustments may be required. Adjust the controls one increment at a time, and allow 12 hours after each adjustment for the refrigerator to reach the temperature you set.

Adjustable Humidity Crispers and Snack Pan (on some models)
HIGH LOW
HIGH LOW
Normal
Coldest
Slide the control all the way to the High setting to provide high humidity recommended for most vegetables.
Convertible Meat Pan (on some models)
The convertible meat pan has its own cold air duct to allow a stream of cold air from the freezer compartment to flow around the pan.
The variable temperature control regulates the air flow from the freezer compartment.
Slide the control all the way to the Low setting to provide lower humidity levels recommended for most fruits.

The freezer is working fine and I hear the fan in the freezer working when I open the door, however the refrigerator is not getting enough cold air into it. I place my hand under the vent where the air is...


The "control" on the freezer section is simply a mechanical air valve and controls how much freezer air actually goes into the refrigerator section. No electronics here at all.

So, IF not enough air is coming into the refrigerator, LOWER the setting on the Freezer Control .... mine has letters A B C D E try "B" and see what happens. You should feel an increased air flow at the air vent.

You may have to INCREASE the "Fresh Food Control" control to a HIGHER setting to compinsate for directing more air out out the freezer ... try 6, 7, or 8. This IS an electronic control and controls the ENTIRE refigerator's cold generation.

If this don't work, there is some other problem, like the defrost heater is out and there is lots of ice behind the back freezer wall stopping or reducing the air flow.

My freezer is working fine but refrigerator is not as much cold as it is suppose to be. Is there is a trip button somewhere I can check.


Could be a couple things. Turn freezer dial control to suggested setting---usually 5. turn fridge dial up. if you set the freezer dial to a higher number it will divert more air to freezer, turning down will divert more to fridge.
Clean coils in back or under fridge.
Is ice building up in freezer?
Are your door gaskets sealing?

Stuff in the freezer is melting, motor is running, no cold


turn your freezer temp dial to off and wait 30 seconds, then turn it back on to max setting. if you have temp gauage you can try to check temp inside freezer, if not cold enough (less than 30 degrees) you could be losing freon gas. you need to call technician.

Frig side not working on Maytag MZD2766GEW


freezer not defrosting. probably adaptive defrost board in fridge.
take panel off freezer (inside, back panel). if all frozen, can defrost with blow dryer. best to remove fridge control panel (inside, top of fidge). access adaptive defrost board, jump test to f1 (i think) next to test. this should initialize defrost mode. buy new board.

Refridgerator acting erratic


The refrigerator/freezer defrost system can be checked by manually initiating a defrost cycle. There
are two methods of initiating the ADC Test Mode.
First Test Method:
1. Turn the thermostat off for 15 seconds.
2. Turn the thermostat on for 5 seconds.
3. Turn the thermostat off for 15 seconds.
4. Turn the thermostat on for 5 seconds.
5. Turn the thermostat off for 15 seconds.
6. Turn the thermostat on for 5 seconds.
7. Turn the thermostat off.
In 3 to 8 seconds the ADC should turn on the defrost heater (with the bimetal closed). NOTE: The test mode will terminate when the bimetal opens. If the refrigerator/freezer is already in defrost, Test Mode can be terminated by unplugging the refrigerator/freezer from the wall outlet and waiting 30 seconds before plugging it back in. The refrigerator/freezer should immediately go into cooling mode if the thermostat is closed.
If this first test procedure fails to make the ADC initiate a defrost cycle, try the following procedure to make the ADC begin the Test Mode.
