SAMSUNG RS21HD side by side freezer temp swing range?
« on: January 25, 2012, 11:53:57 PM »
Dear All,

 I have my new RS21HDEIS side by side refrigerator by Samsung for about a week. I put a wireless thermometer in side the freezer and found that while I set it to -16C (3.2F) the actual temp in the freezer swing between -25C (-13F) and -12C (10.4F). All the test done in 10hours with never open the freezer in the test period.

Is this normal? Is it too large swing? Any suggestion?

thanks,

I just found out that it depend on the ice bucket.
If the ice bucket is not full, the freezer temp will be set to -28C (-18F).
If the ice bucket is full, the freezer temp will be at the user setting.

I don't like this function, Could I disable this? I want my freezer to be set at my preferred temp.

I mean while it still producing ice, not ice off. It may producing at a slower rate, that OK.

how are you measuring these temperatures ?
If your thermometer sensor is just measuring the air temperture,
that's not the correct way to monitor.
After leaving this Earth, "Do you want the smoking or non-smoking section?"
