Question about Dometic RM2620 Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have an Electrolux RM2400. In recent hot conditions the refrigerator temperature soared to 20deg Celcius and contents of the freezer thawed. In cooler conditions since (currently 21deg) refrigerator has not recovered; it is now at 17deg. Gas is OK, refrigerator is level, door seals are new. So... what now?

How do I adjust freezer temperature on Electrolux refrigerator?


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

Refrigerator Tip!


Don't set your refrigerator's temperature too low. The colder it gets the more it costs to run. Set the refrigerator's temperature to between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit (3 to 6 degrees Celcius) and your freezer to between 0 and 5 degrees Fahrenheit (-17 to -15 degrees Celcius).

My refrigerator shows a code "OF" or "0F" where the temperature settings usually show, we tried to put the temperature settings back but couldn't. We unplugged the refrigerator to reset it but it sti


Cooling Off mode (also called Shop mode), is designed for use by retailers when they are displaying refrigerators on the shop
floor. In Cooling Off mode, the refrigerator's fan motor and lights work normally, but the compressors do not run, and
the refrigerator and freezer do not get cold.
To start Cooling Off mode, Touch and hold the Energy Saver button and the Power Freeze button for 3 seconds during normal
operation.
The refrigerator chime sounds and the temperature display flashes OF OF.
To cancel Cooling Off mode, Touch and hold the Energy Saver and the Power Freeze buttons again for 3 seconds.

What should the temperature be on the non frozen side


Hi

We use Celcius here in Australia but I looked up the conversions.

Optimum temperature for your fridge is 3 or 4 Degrees Celcius. (37.4F to 39.2F)
Optimum temperature for your freezer is -14 to -16 Degrees Celcius. (3.2F to 6.8F)

Refrigerator temperature showing lower than it is.


SOME OF THESE CONTROLS SWITCH TO CELCIUS. SOME DO IT ON ACCIDENT AND CANNOT BE SWITCHED BACK. LOOK AT YOUR BOOK. IF YOU HAVE NO BOOK GET IT FROM THE MANUFATURES WEBSITE. OR REPLACE CONTROL.

Will freezer work in low ambient temperature (i.e. 26'F)? I have a GE refrigerator/freezer (c. 1983) in a cabin which gets winter temps around 25 degrees. I found the freezer contents had melted and then...


The compressors are rated for ambient temp. and most refrigerator compressors are rated for abour 50 degrees F

to answere your question yes the ambient temp is a problem.

And as for the Thawing, the refrigerator will go into defrost every 8 to 10 hrs and turn on the heater inside the freezer for about 30 min.

You can also cause damage to the seal system and the compressor because the oil will become slugish inside the compressor.

In other resarch I found that because of the ambient temp the freon gas (mostly the newer freon's) won't work corectly because they stay in liqued form.

Freezer


The condenser or high side is built into the side walls on these modern freezers and refrigerators in many cases. It is normal for the outside walls to be hot when the unit is working. Frost on the inside of the sealed packets of food is from the moisture content of the food. Running the temperature setting to cold will accelerate the moisture freezing to the inside of the food packets. This also is a normal condition.
