There is no certain temp at mid range . If there was , I'd say 40 degrees . If there was a certain temp , at any setting , then there would be no need for a thermostat , only an on/off switch . The mid-range , is set by the factory , as a normal operating temp , to keep food safe . However , some people like their milk colder , so , they turn the thermostat higher . Like milk warmer , turn down the thermostat . Basically , the settings are a personal preference of the temperature you like your food .

Hi,i hear alot about bi wireing could someone explain what it actually is used for and what's it meant to do could I'm thinking bout trying it on my speakers?

It's a big job, but the results are great. Bi amp-ing is where the tweeters and mid range speakers are separated and connected to separate amplifiers. You'll need to have the correct gear before messing inside your speakers. You'll need to have another amplifier. Not knowing what amp you have now, getting a stereo signal into the second amp may be a problem since you'll need a line level signal into the second amp. An external crossover is best. Technically, you could use the ones in the speakers, since you'll be removing them anyway. Now for the speaker mods: On the panel where the posts for the speaker wires are you'll need to install another set of binding posts. We're assuming you have separate subs. Open the speakers and remove the cross over. The wires from the original posts should now connect to the mid range speaker. Add wires from the second set of posts and wire it to the tweeters. Now connect the output of the amp to the removed cross over and wire the mid range out on the cross over to the posts that connect to the mid range speaker. Do the same for the tweeters.If you have three way speakers, you'll have to run a 3rd set of wires from the crossover to the woofers in the cabinet using another set of binding posts. Controlling the volume on the second amp will be difficult since you'll have to adjust it manually. Remote control volume level will be lost on the second amp.

SAMSUNG REFRIGERATOR MODEL RT72KBSL1/2012, IS HAVING TEMPERATURE FLUCTUATIONS. for ex, temp reaches -20 than decreases to 9 degree n again -20 n vice versa. There is fluctuations also on display.

Sounds like your thermostat is sticking on and needs replaced. Before replacing check the setting on the thermostat. Almost all themostats are calibrated to maintain the proper temperature in the correct range when the thermostat is set to the mid position. If your thermostat is number 1 to 9, place it at 5. Refrigerator and freezer do not cool faster setting the controls to the coldest setting. This is misconception of a lot of people.

Freezer runs but won't keep most foods frozen even on coldest setting

Check condenser clean and fan working. Check it's not frozen solid because you've been running it full pelt; if it is, fully defrost it then set it at a mid range setting.

Neither refrigerator or freeer is very cold despite moving controls to coldest setting. Notice some frosting on inside of freeer on back part way down.

The defrost system has failed. Most likely a bad heater and thermostat behind the freezer wall panel.
Both controls should be set to the mid-range.
If the heater and thermostat are good then the main control board is bad.

Maytag gas wall oven has error code: f-4 when I try to turn it on. Can you help me/

code f4 means there is a tempreture setting error either your ignitor is weak which if you tested with a multimeter should be drawing between 3-3.3 amps any less then this would constitute a weak ignitor and you would have to replace the ignitor also on some units they also have an oven tempreture sensor which tells the unit ok im hot enough now its time to turn off the oven or need more heat to reach the desired tempreture if your unit has one of these you would perfom an ohms test on it and usually they should read between 1000-1100 ohms Im not sure on if your unit has a sensor due to you did not provide the model number so first check the ignitor this is the most common issue in ovens and stoves that i find. If you have any further questions message me back and please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks again if you have any further questions I await your reply

Oven tempperature is off anywere from 50 to 100 degrees. varies with setting

you either have a bad tempreture sensor or you have a bad ignitor if the oven is gas the tempture sensor if you do an ohms test at room tempreture should read 1100 and if you do an ampere test on the ignitor if your stove is gas this should read between 3 and 3.3 amps any less and you would have to change the ignitor if you have anyfurther questions please message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks again

GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge

Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

The ref/freezer temp control goes from 1 to 5. Is one or 5 the coldest?

Yes, the highest number would be the highest level of cooling. Normally you would set the controls to mid-range and adjust from that point to your satisfaction.
