In all frdige freezers, 1-7 is -18 to -21 approx in the freezer and between 2 and 4 in the fridge. This may vary from system to system but not by much. Obviously, 7 is the coldest as this makes it the most difficult for t he thermostat to disengage.

How do i set temperature


Most fridges have only a plastic dial located somewhere in the rear of the food space inside the fridge that simply says "cooler" or "warmer" Turn this dial to change the temperature. If you want to know what the temperature is you will have to put a thermometer inside the fridge for a few minutes , open the door, and quick read the temp before the thermometer warms up. I keep a cheap thermometer with a large dial with a red indicator inside my freezer all the time and that way I can see how cold it is every time I open the freezer.

I am wanting to change the temp on my nelson BD-8 freezer, is there a way to tell how far to turn it?


If there isn't a "temperature" listing on the dial, your best bet is to probably get a cheap $4 thermometer that goes to the freezing temperature range and leave it in the freezer. Leave it in with the door shut for 30 minutes and then adjust the dial and leave it alone for a day. See how much it changes.

How to set fridge temp


    1. The first thing you must know is that your refrigerator should be set at 37-38 degrees. Anything at 40 or higher and you are risking food born illness (food poisoning) or spoiling your food. Place your magnetic thermometer in the refrigerator.

    2. Set your dial on your refrigerator to the second lowest setting. (If your refrigerator is already equipped with a digital thermostat, simply set it for 37 or 38 degrees and do not move on to the next step)

    3. After 2 hours, check your thermometer reading. If your reading is 38 degrees, there is no need to go higher and you are ready to put your groceries in. Be sure not to open and close your refrigerator during these two hours or your temperature reading will be incorrect.

    4. If your reading is higher than 38 degrees, move your dial up to the next coldest setting and repeat the steps every two hours until you reach the correct temperature for your refrigerator.

    5. Once you have reached the correct refrigeration temperature for your refrigerator, place the magnetic thermometer in the refrigerator permanently and watch for changes.

    Typically, your refrigerator temperature will need to be adjusted with the seasons, a higher setting in the summer and a lower setting in the winter.

Freezer runs constantly,seal is okay,frost free,have tried lowering the temp,food stays frozen. zeecudaboro@tds.net


It seems to me that the thermostat is no longer sensing temperature. IT will either stay on (it controls the compressor) or wont come on at all when it becomes a problem. You can order one thru sears.com if there is not a appliance parts store nearby. To check before buying, heres what you do. You need to know the temperature (use a thermometer that reads below zero). it has to be at least 10 degrees or cooler. if it is then turn down thermostat dial to 1. if it shuts off then the thermostat is ok. if it doesnt turn off (the compressor) replace t'stat. let me know the temp. and if this works for you hope this was helpful...

Temperature swing specification in a chest freezer.


It depends on the control that your freezer utilizes.

If your temp control dial has the numbers 0-9 or 1-9, then you have whats commonly known as a coil temp sensor.


Unlike an air temp contol that measure the air temp inside the freezer and comes on and off with a 3-5° swing, the coil temp sensor runs a little bit different.

With a coil temp control or sensor, the temp control has a capillary tube and bulb that is inserted into the coil either at on of the ends down a guidetube or just into the center of the radiator type fins. This temp control measures the temperature of the coil, and not the temperature of the air inside the freezer. When the unit runs, the coils typically gets 20° colder than the air temp. And when the control satisfies (shuts off), it will not call for cooling again until the sensing bulb has reached the cut-in point which is typically well above design box temp.


So, to quickly answer your question, yes it is possible to have a 25° temp swing and not have anything really wrong with the unit. That is how its been designed to operate and that is how it will operate. Your only option (although not recommended) is to replace the coil temp sensor with and air temp control. That will give you more consistent temps.


Also, when taking temp of a freezer with a coil temp sensor, be sure to temp the product in the freezer and not the air temperature.

Freezer temperature swings


the users manual does not cover this particular issue as to the temperature swing. I have seen some thermostats that are the "constant on" type that you are describing. No way of telling from the vague manual. As long as you are not storing ice cream for a long period of time, 0 degrees is usually fine for most home applications. Sorry I can not give you more info.

Temperature control


I have a danby mini fridge and freezer and noticed the same problem. The temperature dial has NO NUMBERS ON IT! it just has a strip that goes from light to dark blue. That's it. I looked in the manual and it doesn't say anywhere which way is colder...it makes sense that the darker the blue the colder the temperature but why keep us guessing?
