What temperature should i have my top half fridge of my hotpoint fridge/ freezer as it is too cold and everything is freezing

A good setting is in the middle of the thermostat range. For example, if you have numbers from 1 to 9, 5 would be a good number. If this setting continues to freeze, look for a bad thermostat or temperature thermistor.

Why my fridge freezer keeps beeping four hort beeps

Temperature alarm
If the temperature becomes too warm, an alarm will sound and the temperature display will flash. The temperature the appliance is set at will determine when the alarm is triggered.
The alarm will sound and the display will flash under the following conditions:

  • - whenevertoomuchwarmairflows into the appliance, for example when food is being loaded, re-arranged, or taken out.
  • - wheneverlargeamountsoffoodare being frozen at once.
  • - whenevertherehasbeenalengthy interruption of the power supply. Door alarm
    If the appliance door is left open for longer than approx. 60 seconds, the alarm signal will sound.

Switching the alarm system ON
The alarm system is always active. It does not need to be switched on manually.
Switching the alarm OFF early
Once the set temperature has been reached in the freezer section, the alarm signal stops and the temperature display stops blinking. If the alarm signal bothers you, it can be switched off early.
^ Press the alarm off button. The alarm signal will stop. The temperature display will continue to blink until the set temperature has been reached. The display then stops blinking, and shows a steady reading. At this point, the alarm system is ready again if needed.

Fridgidaire refrigerator flashing error code 4

From what I remember a flashing 4 means "damper error". Send your model number found inside or on the outside of the fresh food section, The air damper is found between the freezer and fresh food section and regulates temperature in the fresh food section by opening wide for things that warm up your fresh food section example would be opening the door and letting warm air inside . The damper then closes to keep the right temperature. If you have questions please ask, Thanks Sea Breeze

The thermometer shows 4

The number that is showing on your fridge is a setting and not the actual temperature in your refridgerator. The recommended setting is what you should start with. That number maybe highlighted or noted in the fridge of a starting setting. It is probably between a 3-5 range and is usually the middle setting.

Our fridge, a Zanussi Electrolux, temperature guage warning us something is faulty. It is not cold enough and struggling but still working. The freezer below is working O.K.

Couple of possibilities.. If there is a fan or vent between the fridge & freezer, it may need to be adjusted.. Or the simplest thing is there might be one or two thermostats controlling the temperatures of both the fridge & freezer. Maybe you can adjust the temperature that way. Sometimes a door heater can cause an unexpected change in temperature.. Check to see if there's unusual heat around the door. Also, test the temperature using a different guage, as it may be faulty. The bottom line is that it could be low in refrigerant gas, if thats the case you need special guages, leak detector, charging cylinder etc. Quite hard to fix. Is the compressor running for long periods of time? If so, maybe it's never satisfied & the system does have a leak. Anyway, see if you can test (ice or spray can of freeze) the bulb or sensor on the end of the thermostat. Replace it if it's faulty, it's the easiest thing to fix. Rgds.
