I think it is too warm. I would like to know what is an expected temp for a Dometic Refrigerator in 90-95 degree weather. Thanks

Yesterday, I checked my Dometic refrigerator using the coldest setting.
The outside temperature was in mid-90's. The freezer was 15 and the lower refrigerator was 30. Which was much colder than it needed to be. I did not have any food in it.
I was just checking it.

Thanks, That is what I am looking for. My fridge is in the mid to upper 40's and the freezer is in the lower teens.

At 10:00 last night the fridge was in the mid 50"s and the Freezer was in the upper 20's. Am going to put it on gas in a few minutes and see if it operates any better. Will update later today. Thanks.

Where is the temp slider set ? It is on the cooling fins. Is there anything in the fridge?

Sorry I did not respond yesterday Flybob. The Temp slider is between the first and second fins and as high as it will go without being in a strain. The bottom is about 2 inches from the bottom of the fin.

At 10:15 this morning the temp in the freezer was at 2 degrees F and the fridge was at 46 degrees F. These readings are weird.

The button was out on the chimney sensor. I pushed it in and took these readings shortly after. Then I switched it over to gas to see if it performed better on gas.

That is where it stands now. Thanks
