Ok I have a new AcuRite freezer alarm...its realy a great idea..I have one wireless probe in my cellar small uoright freezer ( not a frost free) and the other in my side by side Whirlpool fridge freezer that IS frost free...You can set the upper and lower limits for the alarm.
I had both set at upper 15 degs and lower -15 degs....the display also shows the avg upper and lower temps the freezers see.
well 1am my side by side goes off and I get up to see the temp at 16 degs but already dropping back to 14 degs...for the rest of the day eariler it stayed at betwen 0 and 2 degs...
Now Im assuming it was during the defrost cycle
So should I raise the upper limit to say 17 or 18 degs ?? How long is the defrost cycle and how warm does it get ?
