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...?

Frig  36-40 degrees

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).
