Re: not cooling

Listen for a clicking noise from the compressor. Could be a bad relay on the compressor, sealed system problem, or faulty board.

How do I turn refrigerator back to what temp

FREEZER /FRIDGE NOT COOLING: Optimum refrigerator temperature at or below40° F(4° C). The freezer temperature should be0° F(-18° C). Check temperatures periodically. Appliance thermometers are the best way of knowing these

Check ur cold control thermostat, ur thermistors in both fridge and freezer ( they should be checked for both ohms and for amount of current being put out as per ur model ), ur air flow vent from freezer to fridge.( to make sure it opens and closes without any restrictions) On thermistors check for A close circuit and amount of ohms not just an Ohm reading. As per ur model. Most should atleast show 1200 ohms. Also Check door seals for leakage.

How do I get my fridge to cool in cold weather with buying grill covers?

That is correct, you have reached the thermostat set point. Does not matter C or F. Read the manual it will give you the limits:

The ideal refrigerator temperature is 35°F (1.6°C). You're not hugging the danger zone like you would be at 40°F (4.4°C), and you're distancing yourself sufficiently from 32°F (0°C) that you don't freeze half the stuff in your refrigerator.

What is the ideal setting for fridge on Bosch KGN34VW20G

Hello John;

My name is Peter. I am a retired Sears service technician. The freezer temperature should be between -2 & + 2 degrees F. The fresh food section should be between 35-40 degree F.
Pick up a inexpensive temperature gauge with a steel shank. Place the temperature gauge in the freezer center. Do not make contact with any food product. Allow 20 minutes and read the gauge. Be quick the temperature on the gauge will drop quickly when you remove. Adjust the temperature control knob according until you reach the desired setting. Repeat this process as necessary. Do the same for the fresh food section.
You only have one source of cooling; the evaporator coil and fan in the freezer. The freezer will meet it's temperature setting first before it opens the fresh food section damper.
A balanced system will save on your electrical bills. The compressor will kick in only when demand is met. Your compressor should not be running continuously.

Refrigerator is not working, freezer is working

Sir, To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant. I suggest you to contact the service authority.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.
