Are you aware that once you set a desired temperature that the display will default back to the actual temperature and the control board will slowly raise or lower the temperature and the display will follow those raised or lowered temps?

OK now it is down to 0 It is fluctuating Should I just leave it alone? Not sure when it will stabilize and don't know why it was up to 22
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 11 months ago.

Yes just leave it the temps and display should stabilize in about 24 hours from you adjusting the temps .

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Need to wait 24 hrs to see if the freezer temp will stabilize Right now still fluctuating but I did push a lot of buttons yesterday when it was up to 22 degrees...
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 11 months ago.

yes anytime you change the temp setting you should wait 24 hours for the unit to reach those set temps .

And of course each time you ope the doors and allow warm air in will add to that time also.
