what temp should

The fridge operate at? Freezer is fine but fridge does not seem very cold. Does the outside temp effect the operating temp? I am going to buy a thermometer to check temp. Tia

Don't know the specific temperature but I know if I have mine running via electric it never seems very cold. But if I put food in there it does stay plenty cold. If I'm operating on propane, it gets colder. But I bet you it's working. Put something non perishable (jug of water) in there for a test. Also, if you overload it with room temperature stuff (ie warm beer) it will take a while to cool and cool your contents. It helps if you put cold food in it pre cooled. Just my experience.

I try to keep the fridge around 35 degrees, but definately above 32. I have a digital thermometer that reads outside the fridge. Thats nice so you can see what the inside fridge temp is without opening the door.

Depending on the outdoor temperature, I place the cold setting at 3 or 4 (out of the 1-5 scale) and it keeps the freezer temperature near "0" degrees, and the refrigerator section at 36-38 degrees. And that's running on either electric or propane.
