Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
the readout is what the temp is. this has whats called thermistors in the refrigerator which give real time readouts of the refrigerator and freezer temps. if you feel like this is not correct (like things are warmer then the temp says) then putting a temp thermometer in the refrigerator is a good idea, however the temp shown is the actual temp inside. hope this helps. best wishes and I hope your power is restored soon. thanks, Bryan
I did buy a little metal refrigerator thermometer and that says 40 degrees so I was not sure which was most accurate. The digital display or the bought thermometer. I did then set the temp at 32 but it went back up to 34 so I thought that maybe the digital was reading the actual temp.
Thank you so much. You have given me peace of mind, and in this situation I really appreciate it. This is our first encounter with this new refrigerator of a power outage so I never gave this a thought until now. You have been great. Thanks.
