? on Dometic 2852 fridge temp setting

While in the process of defrosting the fridge fins I noticed the probe that is supposed to be in the temp setting slider came out. OK, no big deal, just slid it back in. My ? is should the top of the probe be flush with the top of the slider, in the middle, or flush with the bottom? And yes I looked in the manual but no mention of where it should be. TIA for your help.

It is the temp control for the lower fridge. Slide it up and down till the lower compartment keeps the beer cold without freezing the eggs.

Thanks turbo and herk. Top of the slider is where I'll put it. And I too like my drinks ice cold.

so, if the freezer is cold enough to freeze water, but the refrigerator is too warm, the white wire with probe on end needs to be higher on the fin? Mine does not have a clip and just droops near the plastic pan which is below the fins. It seems from all the posts I have found, that the higher the probe in the refrigerator, the cooler the refrigerator gets??? and if so I need to get a clip to keep my probe higher on the fin.

Still-learnin, you are correct, the higher the probe, the colder the fridge. If the clip is missing, I would find or fabricate one.

Should be clipped to fin, in contact, to work properly.
