If you have the food frozen or water frozen in less than 2 hours with less opening of the doors then the fridge must be working fine. make sure there is sufficient voltage as required for the specified mains requirement.
Similarly once the freezer is working fine your bottles kept within should be chilled by this time.If so your fridge seems to work fine.
Since you have a new fridge you can always have the warranty/service cover which you must be aware of and taken consent for advice..

We bought a Westinghouse fridge on Saturday we hooked up the water as per instructions the water flows to the conection on the fridge but nothing comes out of the water dispenser.

Is it brand new if so keep pressing the lever, I have had it take minutes before the water arrives. There is a long stretch of coiled tubbing inside that the water has to pass through.

We bought a used but newer model White Westinghouse refrigerator; brought it home, plugged it in. We can hear the condenser motor running, but neither side is getting cold. There is an additional hose of...

Some fridges have an internal fan that sounds like the compressor. If the compressor is running and the fridge is any good the inside will quickly cool and the condenser will become warm. If the outside gets warm but the inside doesn't get cool it is possible the defrost heater is permanently switched on because of a fault.

If the compressor is running and nothing is happening the fridge has probably lost it's refrigerant gas. Moving fridges can upset them and it is unwise to switch on straight away - they really need to settle for at least 4 hours. Switching on too soon can damage a lubricant deprived compressor.

The fridge should be between 2 and 5 degrees C or 36 and 41 degrees F and the freezer should be between -18 and -25C and 0 and -13 defgrees F. If you cant get the temp right then call a service engineer asazp.
