Temperature


Hello R, thank you for your question! Generally speaking it is recommended that the temperature knob is set in the middle for both the refrigerator and freezer compartment for top mount refrigerators. The temperature can be adjusted by moving the knob in small increments, allowing the temperature to stabilize. If you desire a colder temperature, then turn the knob towards COLDER, or for warmer temperature, turn the knob towards COLD. Turning the refrigerator control will change temperatures in both compartments. For example, if the refrigerator control is turned to a colder setting, the freezer control may have to be adjusted to a warmer setting. Turning the freezer control will only change the freezer temperature. Hope this proves to be helpful!

I have a Goldstar small refrigerator GR-151SPF which is presently freezing the contents. Please tell me if high or low numbers make the frig colder. Thank you.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,

Warmest settings are CCW and COLDER settings are clockwise on the control. Use the numbers as a reference point but... CCW = warmer Clockwise = COLDER
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

We did not receive a manual with our fridge and need to know what temperatures to set it at. It is a two door fridge with a bottom drawer freezer and digital settings. Can you helps? Also do you know how...


If you set both in the middle settings thats generally best. 1 is the on/off and compressor control to run the box temperature, the remaining will say colder /warmer, this can be misleading however as colder actually is colder freezer! not reefer box! so to max that one actually makes the reefer warmer and freezer colder!

My quickchill 420 cc elite whirlpool refrigerator's lower compartment is not cooling at all whereas the freezer compartment is functioning properly. I am in Panchkula near Chandigarh. tel No 8872119703. Pl...


Set both controls to middle setting, pegging the stat is ok , pegging the colder/warmer to colder ,akes the freezer colder, not the reefer box. colder means colder freezer, it does this by starving reefer box of airflow.

On the True GDM12, is #1 colder or warmer than #5?


1 is warmer. The warmest setting is 1 the coldest is 9. Most of my customers use a setting of 5. A few are on 3 but they seem too warm to me.

THE LOCK LIGHT KEEPS COMMING ON, EVEN WHEN I TURN IT OFF BY HOLDING THE FRIDER AND FREESER BUTTON IN FOR 3 SEC, ALSO NONE OF THE BUTTONS ARE WORKING I CAN NOT CHANGE THE TEMP TURN OFF LOCK ECT


Hi.

Try disconnecting the power cord or tripping the circuit breaker for two minutes.

If that does not fix the problem, please give us make and model number of the fridge, so that we can troubleshoot further.

Regards.

Lg side by side refridgerator ice maker


you can adjust the control for the freezer side to a colder setting think of the freezer control as a door warmer setting door open farther colder setting door farther closed the fridge control is electric that runs the compresser can turn fridge down to creat more cooling freezer or set freezer to colder setting it is a balancing
act have actually closed freezer control to coldest setting and had items freeze in the fridge side where air from freezer first enters fridge a lower temp in freezer should help ice production

Model gss20iepcbb freezer side works fine ...fridge


on most units they have two controls refrigerator control is electric t-stat that runs compressor freezer control think of it as a door colder freezer door is barely open warmer freezer door all the way open all cooling coils are in the freezer and a fan moves the air to refrigerater side possible problem fan not running
door freezer control all the way closed
light switch broken light staying on door gasket not sealing tight find door switch press verify light shuts off and fan starts
look for torn or damaged door gasket can look from outside with light and see if gasket contacts case on all four sides
freezer is cold enough so compressor is ok hopr this helps good luck ron
