What is the recommended temperature settings for my refrigerator?

If your refrigerator was just installed, it takes about 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize.

It is preferred that you do not adjust the temperature from the recommended setting during the 1st 24 hours.

For refrigerators with electronic controls (most Side-by-Side and French-Door refrigerators) – Fresh food compartment should be set for 37 degrees Fahrenheit and the freezer should be set for 0 degrees Fahrenheit.

If you have a Multi-Door refrigerator with a Custom-Flex® Temp Drawer, it is recommended to set the fresh food compartment at 39 degrees Fahrenheit. For refrigerators with dial controls – An indicator mark for “normal” will be visible.
