How to make my freezer colder
Hi, some thermostat control knobs and directions to make it colder are different. Here is the best way to find out which way to turn it to make it colder. Make sure you hear it running. Take the control knob and listen carefully while you start to turn it in one direction first. Turn it until you hear the unit shut off. If you turn it all the way to the left and it keeps running, turn it all the way to the right until it stops running. Once you know which way it stops running when you turn it, this will tell you that you need to turn it until it comes back on again and runs. This will be the way it turns to get the temperature to get to a colder setting. When you are doing this, do it very slow and give it about 3 minutes in between each time you start to turn it the other way. On mine it has numbers on it. The higher the number lets say from 1 to 8, the colder it gets, but some are the lower the number the colder it gets. So, you want it to shut off, so wait until you hear it running before you turn the knob. You can open the doors and it will make it come on faster. So when it goes off when you turn the control knob, you will no to turn it the other way for it to come on and it will get colder the more you turn it in that direction. Very easy. PS If it doesn't get colder when you find out which way it goes, you may have a bad thermostat. Please let me know. You can put a thermometer inside to watch the temperature
