What is the ideal temerature range for the fridge and the freezer compartments? I notice when the temerature reaches 40-42 degrees my unit cycles on. At the same time the temperature is at about 20 degrees in the freezer. It usually runs for about twenty to thirty minutes at a time and turns off for about the same amount of time, which means roughtly it runs for 12-hours! Is this normal? Sometimes there is not much in the fridge or the freezer, is this a major factor in what I'm experiencing?
Answer Hi Joseph. The freezer temp. should be around 0-°. The fresh food temp should be between 37 and 42 °. Check in the rear condenser coils to see if they are clogged and the condenser fans is turning up to speed. Are both door gaskets sealing solid at the corners and the bottoms ? Is the evaporator fan turning up to speed ? If you have any empty spaces in either side, it is best to fill up jugs of water and allow them to take up energy initially and then this will keep the cavities at a cold level longer because it will keep it more efficient. Check all of these issues. If the cold control will not start and stop the set point given (heavy detent) then you may need the cold control part # WR9X499 as the capillary bulb may be out of calibration. Condenser cleaning brush part # TJ103. Thank You.
