How to Properly Set the Controls

Is the Refrigerator turned On?

If the Refrigerator is not cooling properly, check to make sure the Refrigerator is turned on. Some Refrigerators need to be manually turned back on after a power outage or surge. The Refrigerator could also accidentally be turned off during routine cleaning.

For Information on how to turn the Refrigerator Off and On, please see your Use and Care Guide for specific information on your model.  If you would like to download or view product literature for your appliance, please visit our Manuals and Literature page.

Are the controls set correctly for the surrounding conditions?

Temperature controls are preset at the factory to the "mid setting" which should be correct for normal household use. The controls are set correctly when beverages are as cold as you would like.

  • If you need to adjust the temperature, wait at least 24 hours between adjustments and then recheck the temperature. 
  • To make the Refrigerator colder, adjust the control to the next higher setting. To make the Refrigerator less cold, adjust the control to the next lower setting. 
  • Repeat this process until the desired temperature is reached

NOTE: Since control panels vary by Refrigerator type, please see your Use and Care Guide for specific information on your model.  If you would like to download or view product literature for your appliance, please visit our Manuals and Literature page.
