Question about Refrigerators
We have had this refrigerator of two months and almost immediately we noticed that the temperature noted on the front display did not match what was really on the inside. We bought refrigerator thermometers and have gotten in the daily habit of unplugging and plugging in the refrigerator 4 or 5 times a day so that the outside digital display would register the correct temp signally the compressor to kick in. Sometimes the difference in temp is as much as 20 degrees! Of course I called BestBuy for repair and they sent a man out who replaced the PCB main circuit card, DA4a-00128D. However, that did not fix the problem. Samsung said they could not find a repairperson to take our repair call since we live in a rural area and have basically given up and told us to exchange unit, which means a 2 hr drive back to the big city! However, I like the style/color of this unit which they don't make any more. Is there hope for this electronic problem or is this model doomed to be a headache?? I think that it is either in the temperature display or the sensor. Thanks When ice maker is turned on the freezer temperature decreases to -12 deg. while the front display shows +8 deg. Ice cream is rock solid! When ice maker is turned off the freezer temp control works fine. At our request, Bestbuy replaced the refrigrator but the new one had the same problem!
The problem is the placement of the thermo sensors. They are in the wrong location. If I can be honest I would exchange the fridge as i heard more of these horor stories.

Hello friend, thanks for your inquiry!
I see that you would like to know how to adjust the temperature within your Electrolux refrigerator, EI23CS55GS1. To adjust the temperature you would use the control panel on the front of the freezer door. There should be a "-"or "+" near the freezer temperature control and that is how you would adjust the temperature within your refrigerator. Be sure to check and make sure that the control lock is not on or you will not be able to adjust the temperature. Any adjustments made within the refrigerator need at least 24 hours to stabilize. I hope this is has been helpful. -Matt

Hi friend, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that you are having difficulty with the temperature settings on your Frigidaire refrigerator. Depending on your refrigerator style on a top mount there should be a cold control on the inside of the fresh food side that would be used to adjust your temperature. On a side by side or French door bottom mount the temperature control is located on the front control panel. Typically, as a "+" or "-" symbol to adjust the temperature. If any adjustments are made to the temperature, please allow 24 hours for the temperature to set properly. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt
