Question and Answers

Q:

What is the normal temperature of a refrigerator?

A:

The normal operating temperature of the refrigerator is 37 degrees F. To accurately measure the refrigerator temperature, place a glass of water in the center of a middle shelf with an accurate thermometer in the water. After 24 hours, check the temperature. It should read about 37 degrees. If not, here are some tips that may help:

  • Cold air enters the refrigerator from the freezer through an air damper at the top of the wall between the refrigerator and freezer section. Make sure that the air flow from this vent is not blocked with food containers.
  • Check the air flow from the air damper when the evaporator fan is running. You should feel some flow of cold air into the refrigerator. If not, you could have a stuck damper or frost buildup that is preventing cold air from properly entering the refrigerator.
  • Make sure that the light in the refrigerator is turning off when the door is closed. Depress the door switch with the door open to check this issue.
  • Check the door seal gaskets around the refrigerator and freezer door. Look for cracks or loose spots. This could cause excessive frost and may lead to cooling problems in the refrigerator.
  • Check the ice dispenser flapper on the freezer door to make sure that it is not stuck open. This would cause frost in the inside of the freezer and could also lead to cooling problems.
  • Check the back wall of the freezer for ice or frost. This could indicate an automatic defrost system problem.
