My fridge not cold enough


If you have turned the dial up as high as it can go "9" and it still is not cold enough, you will need to have some freon added. There is not to much to a fridge. Best of luck.

The fridge doesnt seem to be cold enough not sure which way to turn the dial no indication as to which way to turn. No instruction manual to refer to.


Make sure the freezer dial is in the middle (12 O'clock) position if it has one
If it is turned too far towards the right it will cut off all air flow to the refrigerator
compartment, the air flow from the freezer cools the lower compartment. Also make sure
the fan is running, if it has failed then the freezer will freeze up and block all air flow.

The refrigerator compartment has a cold control as well, it is normally turned toward
the right to make it colder or if it has numbers, set to 5 or above.

I recommend setting the refrigerator to 36 to 39 degrees (just above freezing). using a
thermometer (stick type set in a cup of water overnight to get an accurate reading).
It is the preferred method, and will help in this instance since the numbers aren't legible.
Hope this helps.

Hi my lower part nolonger gets cold enough to keep fresh foods yet the freezer is working well


Set dials to middle setttings, if the colder /warmer dial is peffed max cold its max cold freezer!!! so move to warmer and the freezer will give more airflow to the reefer , the reefer is reliant upon the freezer for its cold air.

Freezer is not cold enough.


Turning it to the right will make it colder. It will only regulate the temp. by few degrees, so if your thinking there will be a big change there won't be.

Dial not turning


in process of dial removal, the dial was somehow jarred to cause some disassembly of the dial...look at the dial body clasps carefully
