What temperature should I set the fridge and freezer for best operation?

Last modified : Jul 19. 2018
Side By Side Refrigerator

The best setting for the fridge is +3°C (37.4f) and for the freezer is -18°C (-0.4f) to -20°C (-4f). However, this will vary depending on types of food and produce stored in the fridge. Frequent opening of the refrigerator results in the loosing the temperature build up to keep food at the temperature it is meant to be, so avoid keeping the door open for prolong periods.

 

Display panel

To set the temperature, on the control panel press the Fridge or Freezer button repeatedly until a desired temperature is selected. For some models the control panel may be located different to the location in the above image. For models that do not have display, turn the knob located inside your fridge/freezer compartment until a desired temperature is selected.
 
Always keep the fridge below 4°C (39.2f) and the freezer below -18°C (-0.4f) to maintain food safety standards.

Please note:

Once a desired temperature is selected, it may take a while for it to display and reach this temperature. This is because it takes time to attain the temperature in either Fridge or Freezer compartment.
