Here is a simple and humorous explanation of how to set the controls on your refrigerator to make sure it is not too hot or too cold or causing frozen produce or spoiled food, and that you are keeping it operating at the optimum temperatures throughout the year.  We get asked by our service customers ( http://ApplianceGuru.com ) all the time "where should my refrigerator controls be set at?" because the dials or buttons are labeled with numbers, rather than temperatures.  In this whimsical episode, complete with cute cat pictures, Mrs. Samurai ( http://Appliantology.org ) explains how you can set your controls with confidence using inexpensive refrigerator thermometers and a little observation. Keeping your controls set to maintain proper operating temperatures ensures food safety and energy efficiency.

Appliantology is, however appliances are not, an exact science for I know there are a few refrigerators that actually hate me.

The simplest explanation is most likely the correct and least expensive one, unless it's your compressor or motherboard" Occam as an appliantologist

"When you have eliminated all the impossible, whatever remains, however implausible, must be the logic truth; unless it's your compressor or motherboard." Mr. Spock as an appliantologist

"I think, therefore I have no earthly idea why this thing is not working...I got nothin'...". Rumored to have been uttered by a frustrated Descartes while diagnosing his GE Profile.

Thanks, Mrs. Samurai for your informative video.

 

I have just started taking refrigerator thermometers on calls. If I have a customer that does not have a digital display of the actual temp. Then I give them a thermometer. Just good Customer Service. And helping your customer.

A long time ago my wife and I were looking for our cat.  We heard her meowing but we couldn't find her.  Turns out she was in the fridge.  She must have been in there for an hour or so.  She was little cold, but ok.  She recommended that we keep the fridge warmer.

I'm just glad she didn't crawl in the oven or dryer.
