Set it at the location that gets the beer cold; yet won't freeze the eggs.
Yes you are correct -if I had known what it is called I would have done a search.

What you say is 180 degrees from what I as told as far as up being colder and down being warmer, but I am going with what you say.

I guess this is just another little "RV Thing" you learn as you get more into it. I guess we will have to check the position of the thermistor from time to time.

Thanks for your help - Again

Coldest part of refrig is low, raising thermister will sense warmer air thus telling the refrig to cool it. Mine says UP for cold.

Yup, checked the manual.

Up for cold.
The fin is warmer up there as I said so it calls for more cold.
Sorry for confusing you.

No problem - making a mistake here is not something you do often

Good to know that my dealer rep (who told me this) knows what he is talking about.

Thanks again to you and everyone else who came in on this.

Mine is perfect in the middle and have not had cause to move it for 3 years.
That memory cell was a casualty of a "Margarita Night."

OK - I have another question now regarding this thermister - we have the cold control buttons on our refrig. Am I correct in assumming that the thermister is controlled by the setting of the cold button?

In other words, changing the cold button setting is the same as moving the thermister up or down without having to actually move it?

I don't have that feature, but I assume you don't have the wire clipped to the fins either. My guess is that the buttons do what the wire thermistor does.

The thermistor wire is attached to the cooling fin via a slideable clip so it can be moved up or down. We also have the push button feature, so I am guessing that the button adjusts the resistance value of the thermistor

No idea. What is the make and model? I will look it up.
