I run my own aplliance shop out of my house and we set them at (freezer about a 5 6 depending how many numbers you have on the dial) and the fridge should be set higher like a 7 8. try to keep them about two mubers apart. It also will varie on how much food you have in the fridge too. Hope this helps :)

My Danby refrigerator shows a lot of temp variance. A thermometer on the top shelf shows 40 degrees, lower shows 32, is this normal?


if the door has been opened or used for a number of times ,that variation will be around normal
the system works like this
the fridge cools air from the bottom up as cold air falls to the bottom of the fridge
if the door is not being opened ( over night) the whole compartment becomes to the same temperature as set by the thermostat and that is when the fridge cuts of
Now if the door seals are leaking cold air out at the bottom then the whole compartment will never get to the same temperature ( your variation)
similarly if the door is constantly being opened , the cold air at the top of the compartment replaces the cold air at the bottom that has flowed out onto the floor on opening the door (again your variation)
so you have to possible items to check
1 are the door seals in top condition and 2 is the door being opened too much in short periods of time

Sub-zero 550 refrigerator is too cold--icing at boottom near vegetable bins. Temperature is eratic--a lot of variation between top shelf and bottom and frequently shifting and changing.


It is very common for this refrigerator to have a freon leak in the evaporator.
Since you need a EPA license, This is usually beyond the scope for the home owner to repair.

Freezer too cold, has frost on food and frig is freezing food on Kenmore side by side frig/freezer. Model 1065438300 Ran test sequence on front panel and all is inputs and outputs display that they are...


There should be separate temperature controls for each side correct?First,try turning the freezer side to a warmer temperature setting.Not just a little but a lot.It takes about 24 hours for it to adjust to the new temperature,but you can check on it every couple of hours.If nothing changes,it is most likely the thermocouple within the freezer half.It basically reads what temperatureyou want,reads what the current temperature is,and tells the refrigerator when to send more cold air.If there is a noticeable change,we will have to look elsewhere.A thermocouple is basically a metal rod with 2 leads coming out of it into the back of the refrigerator somewhere.It may also be small sometimes,or hidden under a plastic cover.Google thermocouple and it should show some pictures of it.They are for the most part the same with only slight variations in length or width.Greg

The fridge is on its warmest setting and still freezes produce in the refrigerator.


The proper temperature should be between 35 and 42 degrees. Here are some things to try:

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.

  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.

  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    Noisy


    Check to make sure the fan is not hitting anything, if the fan looks good then on the back oof the unit is a relay, check that and make sure all is well. If both check out ok then I would get to work on the compressor and make sure it is not HOT to the touch and that it is operating correctly.
