I have a kenmore upright freezer and can't remember which setting it should be on. It has coldest 1 2 3 etc.

I keep min two notches from the coldest setting.A great way to check where you should set yous,is ice cream.Put an open container of ice cream in the freezer,and turn the freezer to coldest.The next day try to scoop the ice cream.If the ice cream is hard the freezer is too cold.Adjust the freezer two notches ,and try the ice cream the next day.Repeat till you are happy with the hardness of the ice cream.It should be easy to scoop but not too soft.

The refrigerator is not getting cool. The freezer side is working properly.

If youre freezers making ice, and the ice remains dry, there is nothing wrong with the refrigeration cycle or components, the issue is merely insufficient airflow from the freezer into the refrigerators box.
The reefer box is 100% reliant upon the freezer for all of its cooling capacity the reefer section is a byproduct of the freezer, only the freezer has an evaporator coil, there is a small duct between the two sides, the freezer box and reefer box and a movable flapper door/damper that allows or disallows the freezers cold air to migrate into the refrigerators section.

This is a huge and common issue as evidenced by the numerous examples posted here saying, My freezers fine, but reefers warm!!! Impossible actually, unless the damper door that modulates the freezers airflow into the reefers box is closed down, not allowing enough freezer air into the reefers box.
Now when one sets a temp on a reefer the thermostat with the 1=10 and off setting that will cyle the unit off is the 1st place we go, and we raise the setting to cooler temp desired, or max it out most commonly as more is better?? NOT! Sure its fine to peg, max or increase the thermostats setting to the coldest seting, if you want a colder reefer box.
However where the counter intuitive labeling of the remaining dial or setting is where everyone messes up and actually exascerbates the warm reefer box isssue they discovered and attemptef to rectify by peggimg, maxing or at least raising the coldness desired .

The remaining setting has no electrical circuits and cycles no compressor or fan or anything except closing or opening the door that seperates the freezer box and reefers box

If you will notice the writing carefully it says cooler and warmer, or colder warmer etc.
The logical thing to do and waht 99% do when they suspect the reefers warm is raise both, or max both, which males for a colder freezer temp not the reefer! if the dampers ets at max or coldest is shut odff to the reefers box, allowing for a colder freezer as was stsated on the dial only thing is its for the wrong box!! If the freeezers ok and making ice that is dry the setting for airflows off or broken or damper doors stuck obstructed, I cant telll you how many times i billed $85 bucks to set the damper in the middle setting whrre all the dials should be anyways!!!

I recently bought a norfrost chest freezer model c6aew,the freezer did not come with a manual or guide.i switched on the freezer set the dial to seven waited 24hrs and put some food into the freezer to...

Can't help I'm afraid, but we have exactly the same problem with exactly the same model. Ours did work for nearly 2 years, but recently only works with the boost button pressed in. I suspect the thermostat is not working as the boost button over-rides the thermostat to give max cooling. Your freezer is new so get it exchanged; it certainly doesn't need to be full to work!

Refrigerator top rack is warm. Temperature shows 65 degrees

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!

Deciding which way to turn the dial to get the minimum temperature

Coldest when you are on the higher number or higher letter. Ave setting should be around 3 on a scale of 1 to 5.
