fridge/freezer controls & ideal temps

4 posts in this topic

Kenmo C/S 106-60989990

dual controls - 1 cold thru 7 coldest - 4 rec setting

bought it used, it's black, i love it!

(frankly im not sure why they bothered putting numbers on the dials...)

everytime i open one of the doors i cant help but note whether its running or not & if so, is it running too much/often? if its doin' a great job at 4 can/should i cut it back a little? is there any sort of balance issue between fridge & freezer temps? how do i know if these dials even do anything?

well, i found a fridge/freezer thermometer so now im interested to know what the ideal avg temps are for fridge & freezer?

um, also, my freezer seems damned dry (ice cubes evaporate) is that me not using it fast enough or...?

Yes, if you are real slow in using up your ice cubes they will eventually disappear. I quit using ice trays in my freezer because on the few occasions I went to get an ice cube they were empty trays, (and NO, I didn't put them back in the freezer empty).
