Hello Fran Miller,
For OPENERS... (my opinion)
always start by setting you temperatures at mid range.
Owners manual... Page 16
Setting the controls 16 - 17 Adjusting control settings...
I get a little PUSHY
about FOOD TEMERATURES...
(stored poorly there's no quicker way of poisoning ones self)...
I strongly recommend getting TAYLOR refrig/freezer
THERMOMETERS (like Amazon
... cheap = $6 ea
Let the refrigerator stabilize EMPTY 24 HOURS
Loaded with food (not recommended: 72 hours).
ADJUSTING CONTROL SETTINGS
Give the refrigerator time to cool down completely before adding food. It is best to wait 24 hours before you put food into the refrigerator. The mid-settings indicated in the previous section should be correct for normal household refrigerator usage. The controls are set correctly when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream is firm.
