The factory presets your temperatures to the MID / MID setting of 0? for the freezer and 37? for the refrigerator. Refrigerator adjustment range is -15? to +15? in the freezer and 33? to 47? in the refrigerator. Depending on ambient temperatures the temperatures will be + or - 6? the set point. Whenever you make a temperature adjustment, you need to wait 24 hours to notice any temperature difference.

To adjust your temperatures: Adjust controls according to your Use and Care guide. Start out by making sure your settings are at the factory setting of MID / MID. Make only one adjustment: Adjust one control and wait 24 hours before making another adjustment.

To measure temperatures: If you try to measure temperatures, it is important to follow these directions: Fresh Food Section: Put thermometer in a glass of water. Check the temperature during the first door opening after a long (8+hours) non-usage period (such as overnight or when you arrive home from work). Frozen Food Section: Put thermometer between two bags of vegetables. Check the temperature during the first door opening after a long (8+hours) non-usage period (such as overnight or when you arrive home from work).

Yes, the thermostat for the fridge section has failed and it will have to be replaced.

Reading on door OF


Teresa, The fridge is in a retailers demo mode and here is what you do to reset it to normal operation:
Left Door: Simultaneously press and hold the top two buttons on the left side of the display panel until you hear a distinctively different chime sound when the display changes. This will either be a combination of "Energy Saver" and "Freezer", or "Energy Saver" and "Power Freeze/Freezer."
  • At the top of the door frame: Simultaneously press and hold the "Power Freeze" and "Freezer" buttons until you hear a distinctively different chime sound and the temperatures for the fridge and freezer are both displayed.
  • Note: If the temperature is displayed, but then "OF OF" reappears a few seconds later, Cooling Off mode was not disabled. Repeat the actions above, and be sure to press and hold the buttons at the exact same time until the distinctive chime sound is heard and both temperatures are displayed.

My lg fridge lrbn20514bk the thermastat is not working on the top control but for freezer is reading 567


This fridge LRBN20514BK with bottom freezer is a piece of junk. Just had the relay on compressor replaced and now the thermostat isn\'t working. Temperature on fridge reads nothing and freezer temperature reading 5,6,7. Then the freezer coils freeze up and no air blowing to the fridge. Ready to take this POS outside and blow it up. Only 7 years old and never ending issues. I will never buy LG again. EVER! LNG - Life is not good! HELP.....so what needs replacing? Thermostat? And of course I have to have repair man come in due to LG not selling parts to customers. Again I call BS

Everything in the fridge and drawers began to freeze about 10 months after purchase. Reducing the temperature to as high as 46 F doesn't help.


Check the ice bank door to make sure it is closed properly. It is the door that covers the icemaker. Usually that is the problem that someone has left the door ajar leaking freezing temperature into the refrigerator.

How do I increase the refrigerator temp in a Samsung fridge RF267AE. The reccommeded temp is 38 however mine is currently at 36 and items in the back are freezing


Hello,

you should only have to press the button up to change the temperatures, if that does not work the display board on the front will need to be replaced to fix the issue, let me know,

My Samsung refrigerator will not cool


Call Samsung. I had the same problem when Best Buy delivered mine. The delivery people left the fridge in demo mode. The people at Samsung will talk you through it, it is very simple. The fridge should work fine then.
