Defy Fridge temperature dial is confusing - which way is colder?

I have a Defy C317 Fridge with a temperature dial that goes from 0 to 7, but I can't figure out which way is supposed to be colder. I've tried turning it to the extremes in both directions without experiencing a noticeable temperature difference. I'vve tried googling for a user manual, without success. There are no units of measure on the dial, just numbers.

Is 0 supposed to be 0 degrees? And 7 supposed to be 7 degrees? Or does it work the other way around, with 7 being the highest (coldest) setting and 0 meaning no cooling at all?

0 = off, 1 = cool, 2 = cooler, ..... 7 = coldest.  0 - 7 Nothing to do with the degree the fridge is set to.

Top of fridge freezing with temperature on lowest setting


You need a new thermostat but there are some things you can check in the link. 1 is the warmest setting.

Most refrigerator temperature settings are controlled with a dial or slider. They are sometimes labeled 1 through 5 or 1 through 9. If you are not sure what to set it to, then set it somewhere in the middle. If the dial is numbered 1 to 5 set it on 3, if the dial is numbered 1 to 9, then set at 4. USUALLY the higher the number on the temp control dial, the colder the temperature your refrigerator will get. If your drinks and food are not as cold as you like, set the temperature dial up one number higher. If it is at 3 and you want your food colder, set it to 4 and test 12-24 hours later to see if your food is at the temperature you want.

Greetings I have a defy fridge making a clicking sound after every 5 minutes but not cooling its a defy model c317


That clicking sound is probably the overload breaker cutting off the power to the compressor for some reason. It clicks in because it senses not enough cooling but clicks back off after a few seconds because of overload on the compressor for some reason. It tries over-and-over.

Your compressor has failed in some way or the expansion valve for the coolant is not releasing the pressure as designed. This causes high back pressure on the compressor and it can't push against it, so it stalls and draws high current until the safety breaker kicks out.

I'm wondering, does it not cool at all or is it cooling a little but not near enough?

What setting must my fridge and freezer be at. Thanks


RFA70 settings Controlling the Temperature of the Fridge Compartment The left hand control wheel on the front panel adjusts the internal fridge compartment temperature. The internal temperature should be 5?C or colder, although some sections such as the salad bin will be slightly warmer. The setting of the control wheel will depend on the location of the fridge freezer, the room temperature and how often the door is opened. The normal set point (marked by a 3 on the dial) is usually suitable. If you need to adjust the temperature turn the control wheel using a coin to avoid damage: Clockwise (higher number) - Colder Anti-clockwise (lower number) - Warmer

What number do i put my leibherr fridge freezer on and why do they have numbers 1 3 5 9 if you dont use them what are they for


Most thermostats need to be set at mid scale. Set yours to between 3and5. The reason for the other numbers is for some uses a warmer temperature or a colder temperature is needed. For most freezers thermostats set to mid scale will control temperature to around 0 degrees Fahrenheit.
Hope this helps!

How do I set the temperature?


Hello Elise, The Dial should be set to the middle number three (3) to start with and allow for 24 hours of running before you make any adjustments, either up or down.

The higher the number the colder the fridge temperature will be. Just remember that it takes almost a full day for the fridge compensate for any changes to the thermostat. Also, only make adjustments in the temperature setting by only 1 increment at a time (either up or down) and again, allow 24 hours before making further changes.

If your fridge has the red button in the center of the temperature dial, that is the manual defrost button. So if you've got a build up of ice on the freezer section, just push it and it will defrost the unit for up 2-4 hours.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
Merry Christmas!

Temperature


Lower numbers are warmer temps.  Get an outdoor thermometer and put it in the fridge.  It should read about 40 degrees F if you've left the door closed for an hour or so.  Don't worry about the freezer too much.  It should be at 0 F or so.  Generally, leaving the settings at 2 or 3 is right on most units.

I don't know how to set the temperature setting on my Hotpoint RLAV21 fridge. The dial goes from 0 to 4. For fridges I have had in the past the higher the number the colder the fridge but I've got my...


You should have 2 dials one is the thermostat when you set it all the way one direction it will shut you refrigerator off. Turn it back to about the middle if there are no numbers. The other dial is the air damper between the freezer and the refrigerator. The fan circulates the air through refrigerator by this damper. If you open this open to much your food in the refrigeration section will freeze. Close it back to about 2 that will give you a colder freezer and should be about right for the refrigeration section.
