Fridge Setting
« on: March 09, 2012, 11:56:49 pm »
So I have a new fridge/freezer for the office. It's a 6 month old Fridgemaster MTRF140/1 in mint condish for £20 on ebay. Anyways, the controls on fridges have always confused me and the instructions aren't actually available on their site.

Anyways, in the manual for another fridge in their range it says use 3-4 for average temparature rooms and adjust accordingly for hotter or colder rooms. The office is quite cold but it doesn't state if I should stick it on 2 or 6 lol. Any ideas? I could just leave it at 3/4 but might aswell set it up properly.

I think every fridge I have owned I have set between 2 and 3. If anything freezes then it's running too cold and if milk doesn't last as long as usual then it's probably running a bit warm. If you have a thermometer you can check: it should be between 1 and 4°C.

Check with a thermometer, it's the only way to be sure.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...
