Re: thermostat

It's the Danby "auto-defrost" feature. It cycles off every 24 hrs to defrost, at which time the temp rises (as the unit isn't running!). Not much you can do. By the way, the blue LED temp display isn't accurate. It NEVER gets 36 (liquid temp) inside the Danby unless you do the following: Open the door and look to the back left. There is a small grate covering the temp sensor. Remove the grate and place the sensor into a small cup of water. The sensor will now read the "liquid" temp inside the keg, and not the "air" temp. The Danby will then cool the inside to a more beer friendly temp, and should not only cut back on foam, but taste better.

This is in the garage and now it has come cold the freezer part has defrosted ?

Remember that the control is intended to keep the interior temperature of the refrigerator section at approximately 36F-40F for normal operation. If the garage temperature falls below this point the Refrigerator won't run again until Spring, or whenever the garage temperatures rise above the normal range for a long enough period of time. If you have sustained periods where you garage is below 40F it's likely you will Freeze everything in the refrigerator and break glass containers while The Freezer will be TOO warm.

This unit will not work properly where outside temperatures remain below 36F for extended periods of time.

Freezer goes -9 and fridge goes to 40 I have set it to 0 for freezer and 34 for fridge it changes on its own

Depends on type of refrigerator freezer you have, but you need to realize that the evaporator (cooling coils) are in the freezer, and the cold air produced in the freezer is then circulated via an evaporator fan into the refrigerator section. The thermostat the cycles the compressor motor is located in the refrigerator, and the compressor will run until the temperature reaches the desired level in the refrigerator. On most units, the freezer temperature setting simply regulates how much cold air is circulated into the refrigerator.

What you are describing is that the freezer is working fine (almost too good), but the air is not properly getting to the refrigerator area. Several things can be causing restricted airflow, including a faulty evaporator fan, icing of the evaporator coils because of a malfunction in the automatic defrost system. Check to see if there is frost or ice build up in the back or bottom of the freezer. The proper temperatures should be around 0 F for the freezer and 38-40 degrees F for the refrigerator.

For a side by side what do I set the tempt.

Hi Bonnie, that's a great question!

The recommended factory temperature setting is 0?F for the freezer compartment and 37?F for the refrigerator side. Typically, the temperature can be adjusted to the desired setting by pressing the DOWN and UP indicators located beside the displayed temperatures. You can always refer to your Owner's Manual for further specifics on the settings of your refrigerator. Hope this proves to be helpful! - Z

I have a ge profile side by side refrigerator model number psc25psta. The freeze is not getting cold. How do I reset the temperature.

Here is a link to the main GE Support page for your refridgerator:

And here is a link to the Online User's Manual with the operating instruction for it:

See page 5 of the User Manual for detailed instructions on how to adjust the fridge and freezer temperatures. It reads as follows in the manual:

To change the temperature, press and release
the WARMER or COLDER button. SET will illuminate in
the display, as well as the set temperature. To change
the temperature, tap either the WARMER or COLDER
button (while SET is illuminated) until the desired
temperature is displayed. Refrigerator temperatures
can be adjusted between 34F and 47F and
the freezer temperatures can be adjusted
between 6F and +8F.

Once the desired temperature has been set,
the temperature display will clear after 10 seconds.
To display the temperature, the DISPLAY TEMP button
may be tapped.
Several adjustments may be required. Each time you
adjust controls, allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to
reach the temperature you have set.

I dont now how to set temperature for samsung rsh1nhmh . All the light in the house vent off and the plugs . Now on the frige screen is only a flashing light. Nothing else

The refrigerator temperature can be set between 7?C (46°F) and 1?C (34°F) to suit your particular needs. Press the Fridge button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the temperature display. The temperature control process for the Fridge works just like the Freezer process. Press the Fridge button to set your desired temperature. After a few seconds, the Fridge will begin tracking towards the newly set temperature. This will be reflected in the digital display.

I am having LG GR-B352 YC , what is the best temperature that i can keep initially and future??

Generic instructions to set temperatures in fridges:

Many manufacturers design these appliances to operate at 0 degrees F in the freezer and 34 to 36 degrees F in the fresh food compartment.

To set the temperature correctly, fill a glass with water (8 to 12 ounces) and place a thermometer capable of indicating 32 degrees and up into the glass with water (if the temperature goes below 32 degrees, the water will freeze - so no need to find a thermometer that indicates any lower). Place the glass with the thermometer in it on a shelf and wait. Putting the thermometer in a glass of water helps preserve the temperature reading while the door is open. You can skip the water and glass if you want - but you'll need to read the temperature as soon as you open the door.

The freezer will require a thermometer capable of displaying 0 degrees F. Place it on a shelf where it can be seen readily - but preferably in the rear - between items (to prevent the warm air from driving the indicator up when opening the door to read it).

It will probably be easier to set the freezer temperature first. Adjust both the freezer and fresh food thermostats to mid-points (if the fridge is empty - otherwise skip this step). Adjust the freezer thermostat up or down as needed to reach the desired 0 degree F temperature.

Once the freezer adjustments are complete, adjust the fresh food compartment thermostat as needed up or down to reach the desired temperature for it.

If you fridge is fully stocked, it may take some time for the temperature to stabilize and warm / cool the fridge's contents completely. This is further affected by how often the door(s) are opened and for how long. 24 hours is often claimed - but you might be able to sneak an 8 - 12 hour soak before reading the thermometers.

After the temperatures are set, you may find that the lower part of the fresh food area is partially freezing - simply adjust the thermometer up *slightly* as needed.

Please rate this reply if it was helpful - good luck!

My Samsung Refrigerator can not keep the set temperature.

Normally your fridge is set +2 degrees C. with a differential of 3 so when it reaches +5 it should switch back on. if this is not doing this then a new thermostat may be in order.
