Possible Solutions

Have new food and/or beverages been recently added?

  • Adding a large amount of food or beverages will increase the temperature of the refrigerator.
  • The motor will run longer to cool the refrigerator back down.
  • Wait 24 to 48 for normal temperatures to return to the compartments
  • If your refrigerator was recently installed, it may take up to 24 to 48 hours for your refrigerator to reach correct temperature.

Are the doors opened frequently?

Temperature will raise when the doors are opened often, which will cause the refrigerator to run more. In order to keep your unit cool, try to limit continuous opening of the doors.

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. Setting the controls too low can cause the refrigerator to run longer than it needs to.
