Did you have the inverter turned on when you traveled?

Freezer temp will also fluctuate (5-10 degrees)when it goes through a defrost cycle just like at home.

All you can do then is get in touch with the fridge manuf. for a service call.

Mine does that too Jasum.
Only after it gets shut off though..like if I unplug shore power and the inverter does an "overload" error and shuts off. If I leave the fridge off for 10 minutes or so, when I turn it back on the freezer temp is all wonky. Takes a while to get back to 0, but there was no reason for it to rise to 20 degrees after 10 minutes of being shut off and no door opened.
Like you said, only the freezer.

To add to this.
Someone (DW) left a Diet Coke in the freezer and it blew up.
So while cleaning it up the freezer door was open for about 15 mins.
The temp never changed from 0 the whole time.

The fridge is just weird.

Frig

Klassic I think it has something to do with the defrost on frig.
I forget buy years ago we had a GE frig kind of do the same thing.
Do yo have the Frigidaire also??

Had service guy look at frig today. He thinks it has a coolant leak. Says frig has to come out to be repaired or replaced.
Guess I am going to find out what a big deal it is............
That's the only thing I don't like about residential refrigerators.
Dealer can't get me in until August 5th.
