ADJUSTING
CONTROL
SETTINGS
Give the refrigerator time to cool down completely before
making final adjustments. It is best to wait 24 hours
before doing this. The recommended settings mentioned in
SETTING THE CONTROLS section should be correct for
normal household refrigerator use. The controls are set
correctly when milk or juice is as cold as you like and
when ice cream is firm.
The refrigerator control functions as the thermostat for the
entire appliance (refrigerator and freezer sections). The
higher the number setting, the longer the compressor will
run to keep the temperature colder. The freezer control
adjusts the cold air flow from the freezer to the
refrigerator. Setting the freezer control to a lower
temperature keeps more cold air in the freezer
compartment to make it colder.
If you need to adjust temperatures
in the refrigerator or
freezer, start by adjusting the refrigerator. Then wait 24
hours before checking the freezer temperature. If it is too
warm or too cold, then adjust the freezer control.
Use the settings listed in the chart below as a guide.
Always remember to wait at least 24 hours between
adjustments.
