Here is the breakdown on this machine by temperature - it only works optimally in a room that is 68-70 degrees, which is a little on the cold side:

to actually reach 7 degrees Celsius, the room temp must be 68 degrees Farenheit or below
to reach 9 C, room must be 70 F or below
to reach 11 C, room must be 72 F or below

all problems with this wine cellar will be aggravated during the summer months

It is normal if maintaining the proper temperature. Clean condenser coils and make sure there is good air circulation around the fridge, that will improve performance,and reduce running time

Refrigerator runs constantly -- shuts off 3X a day for about 30 mins. each time -- bottom freezer model BX 21VW -- bought in yr. 2000 --- Serial # 0008208852

Refrigerators shut off and on time depends on the outside temperature, and how often you open it according the temperature setting. Lower temperature setting would yield less turn off time and higher temp seting would yiel less running time and vise versa.

Freezer won't maintain temperature any lower than 16-18

It appears that your refrigerator is missing defrost. It will be difficult for anyone to provide photos of your defrost heater. I recommend that you unplug long enough to allow defrost to begin manually so we can get freezer door open and remove frozen goods long enough to place somewhere safe until we examine the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. At this point the only pictures will be the ones you email me. This appears to be a new breed of Profile from GE. If you would like to attempt this please let me know. The defrost heater is part number WR50X10043 but that means nothing until we do some testing, Let me Know, Sea Breeze

Whats the correct temperature the fridge should be set at? our milk goes off very quickly and nothing chills.

A refrigerator should be set for a temperature of 37 to 39 degrees F. Refrigerator controls are not usually marked in degrees but have indications for "warmer-cooler". Set the control toward the cooler side and check the temperature. Place a reliable thermometer on a middle shelf to check the temperature. If the refrigerator is not able to maintain a temperature in the 37 to 39 range then the cooling system may need service.

I can not change temperature to more than 41f. Lower temperatures are OK

Temperature is perhaps the most critical means of control in the prevention of foodborne illness. Harmful (disease-causing) microorganisms grow within a temperature range of 41 F to 140 F (referred to as the "Temperature Danger Zone"). Many foods, especially raw animal products, naturally contain harmful microorganisms. Keeping foods out of the Temperature Danger Zone prevents disease-causing microorganisms from growing in foods. Proper cooking and reheating of food is important because heat destroys disease-causing microorganisms that may be present. Ensuring proper heating and storage temperatures is essential for assuring safe food in retail operations. Temperature guidelines differ depending on the type of food and method of heating method.

Most pathogenic microorganisms will not grow below 41 F, or their growth will be very slow. However, many spoilage microorganisms (which cause foods to taste and smell bad) can grow at temperatures well below 41 F. Most foods that are frozen in food retail are done to improve quality and increase the shelf- life of the product. Most foods will freeze at about 28-30 F. To ensure safe freezer temperatures, be sure that your freezer is maintained at least 28-30 F or below (foods should be frozen solid). Ideally, foods should be frozen at 0 F or below to maintain quality.

It seems that your Refrigrator's higgest point is set to 41 F

Can't get freezer to cool below 10deg F

For Olson- most combination units have a diverter that allows you to balance the flow of frigid air between the fridge and freezer. It may be located in the rear of your unit since the main cold air flow is done there.
Rockitman - not sure which temperature scale you are using - Olson specified 'F' and normal ranges for the refrigerator would be +35 to +45 degrees and freezer temps are recommended as -5 to 0 F. +10 degrees F wouldn't ensure that food would be very well preserved. Indeed, foods with any amount of salt in them may age at +10.

Limp fruit and vegetables

i tell people to judge the fridge and freezer by using your milk and ice cream everyone knowes how they like their milk and it is usually the first indicator of cooling problems and you want your ice cream firm but not so hard that you have to dig it out with a jack hammer and Etheline is a consideration
