What setting must my fridge and freezer be at. Thanks


RFA70 settings Controlling the Temperature of the Fridge Compartment The left hand control wheel on the front panel adjusts the internal fridge compartment temperature. The internal temperature should be 5?C or colder, although some sections such as the salad bin will be slightly warmer. The setting of the control wheel will depend on the location of the fridge freezer, the room temperature and how often the door is opened. The normal set point (marked by a 3 on the dial) is usually suitable. If you need to adjust the temperature turn the control wheel using a coin to avoid damage: Clockwise (higher number) - Colder Anti-clockwise (lower number) - Warmer

What is the best setting for the freezer. The settings range from 1 to 4. Second hand give away no instructions


the medium settings"
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

Freezer side is fine but fridge side wont get below 39 degrees


Nominal tempreture for your refrigerator is 36-38. on the Freezer the tmpreture should be between 0-2. One of the first things to check is on the freezer side is there any frost or snow build up on the rear wall of the freezer. If there were this is termed as a defrost issue. If you do have this issue with frost build up message me back and I will instruct you how to repair this issue. Another thing to check is if the evaporator fan inside the freezer is blowing the cold air into the refrigerator. The Freezer section is the only area that produces the cold tempreture a fan blows the cold air off the evaporator coils through a damper door that opens and closes depending on the tempreture the refrigerator side is set to. Also check the damper door for any ice build up as well this would cause the door not to open and close and remain in a stuck postion. This would cause inadequate tempreture in the refrigerator side as well. If you have any questions or need any schematics or step by step instructions message me back the model number of your unit and I will provide these and answer any further questions you may have. I await your reply
Thank you
Rick

Temperature control are the lower numbers colderr or warmer?


Hi there, the higher the number the colder the fridge, unless the numbers are in degrees. If it's numbered 1-6, 6 is the coldest. -Alex

What is the lowest setting on the temp on a Hotpoint Ctf18ga


Hello Dustin,

Typically the lower the Letter or Number is the warmer setting for the freezer or fridge section. If you want to make them colder, move the control setting ONE (1) increment at a time, in any 24 hour time period (up or down) and allow the fridge to adjust before making another change in the settings.

Again, A is warmer than B, and 1 is warmer than 2, and so on. So going to a higher letter or number, will make the unit colder.

Just remember it will take at least 24 hours for your unit to adjust and compensate for the changes, so only make them gradually, so you can tell if you've reached the desired cooling settings for both the fridge and the freezer. Typically, most manufacturers recommend that the starting position be in the middle of the dial and that you adjust them up or down from there.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Fridge frozen solid


Usually on refrigerators, the highest setting makes it coldest and the lower settings are warmer, relatively. "6" on my dial says "coldest" - Perhaps this is the case for yours? Let's hope it is that simple
