What is the ideal temperature setting on my refrigerator?

Last Update date : Oct 19. 2020

The ideal temperature settings for the freezer and refrigerator compartments are -19°C and 3°C (-2°F and 38°F). If the temperature in the freezer and refrigerator compartment is too high or too low, manual temperature adjustment is necessary.

How to adjust the temperature


  • Freezer

       - Set the desired temperature between -15 °C and -23 °C by pressing the -Freezer button.

        - The default setting is -19 °C, and each time you press the freezer button, the temperature changes and appears on the display.
