I have the refegerator in our garage. I keep the setting on 3 or 4(food isn't very cold ).
The ref is very hot on each side, is there a solution or should I return it? I just purchased it about a month ago.
Answer Hi Dot. Any refergerator is designed to operate in an atmosphere of 70 - 90 degrees. Since it has been very hot across the country, it is normal to turn the controls slightly past mid point. You can use a small fan behind the compressor to help keep more air flow pointed towards the back openings. This will help keep the unit cooler. Make sure that the freezer fan motor is running and the compressor fan is running. Thank you.
