154BH Refrigerator question

This might be a no brainier answer but we find that even when hooked to electric for 24 hours our Refrigerator doesn't really get COLD. The freezer does freeze so its working but the fridge just isnt getting cold. Thoughts? just the reality of a small TT fridge?

Absolute thermometer reading in the fridge cavity after the door has been closed for more than an hour?

What's the outdoor temperature? Gas absorption fridges loose effectiveness when the temps go above 90F or below 32F.

As soon as you open the door, all the cold air falls out of the fridge.

The food acts as a thermal mass and not as much air tumbles out. You stick your hand into a full fridge and you are feeling the cool air around the food.

Yeah, lots of 'problems' are more often perception issues.

You also have to leave a gap on each side of your fridge so the cold air can push the warmer air up to be cooled again. Sounds crazy but it helps. They actually make a fan to circulate the air about 20 bucks. All posts I have read they like these fans, and they work.
