Are you talking about the thermistor setting inside the fridge? The bulb on the end sticks out of the holder and the higher up in the fridge it is the colder it will be. Move it down it warm it up some. Is that what you needed here? If you need more please get back to me later as all follow ups are included in our fee. No time limit.

See the attached link for a copy of the Dometic Service Manual which covers this model. See that section on the thermistor. Let me know if you need more here. http://www.nancyemmert.com/region6/Resources/NewDometicRefrigeratorManual.pdf
