no problem.....just curious. temperatures??
« on: March 10, 2013, 09:17:20 PM »
What should we set our frig and freeze at?    We have the frig at #2 which gives us about 39 degrees, freezer set at #3 which gives about zero.   Certainly we could dial up a notch, lowering those temps.  But what is considered the "normal" or "ideal" temps for frig and freezer???   If it matters, we have a bottom freezer maytag.
 
Thanks very much for any feedback.

I like my fridge cold, about 34F.  The problem with keeping it this cold is getting cold spots and freezing things that shouldn't be frozen.

Thank you all very  much for your thoughtful replies.     I am thinking I will stay right where I am.    When the hot summer weather hits, I will monitor to see if I need to click the temp settingss up one number.
