Temperature in the refrigerator 🥝 how to adjust the cold controller
It is difficult for a modern person to do without a refrigerator. But quite often it happens that a recently purchased and seemingly quite high-quality unit, which should have served at least several years, fails in a couple of months. One of the most common causes is improper temperature conditions. How to redo, install, adjust, adjust the temperature in the refrigerator “Samsung” Nou Frost, as well as in some other popular models? How to reduce, lower to reduce cold?

Samsung produces several models of refrigerators. They differ not only in design, but also in functions. Accordingly, each type requires its own temperature regime. Now on sale you can find the following types of units of a recognized Korean brand:
- Two-chamber. For two-chamber models, the freezer is on top. These rather compact units have been produced for a long time, but are still very popular. Read more about them in our separate article. “Two-chamber refrigerator Samsung Nou Frost - instruction manual”.
- Combi Combi models have a large freezer below. The cameras are autonomous, have separate cooling.
- Side-by-side. This model consists of several cameras. Outwardly, it resembles a closet, each compartment has its own door.
With or without a freezer?
Samsung refrigerators can have different purposes. On this basis, they are divided into several categories:
- refrigerator equipped with a freezer:
- fridge without freezer;
- freezer without a refrigerator;
They can also have different types of freezing. According to this parameter, two groups can be distinguished:

Important! In homes, compressor units are more likely to be found, because they are safe, reliable and have high performance. Absorption models are weaker, in addition, in the event of malfunctions, they emit harmful substances.
How to set the temperature in a Samsung refrigerator?
It largely depends on which model and type. Even inside the unit, the temperature is different:
- The average for a freezer is usually 18 ° C.
- The refrigerator should not be warmer than + 2 ° C, on average - not higher than + 3 ° C.
Important! Some models have a so-called “freshness zone”, where the temperature is around zero.
What are the sensors?
The temperature in the Samsung refrigerator, as well as in models of some other brands, is set using the control panel. She, in turn, gives a “command” to the sensors that are inside. These elements serve to set the optimum temperature in each compartment and maintain it for a long time. Information from the sensor goes to the control circuit, which is “responsible” for the operation of the compressor.
The sensors are as follows:
- the environment.
A common sensor is located in the central part of the refrigerator compartment. It gives an average indicator, on the basis of which the mode is determined.Almost all models have 502AT universal temperature controllers. If the sensor fails, it must be replaced immediately, otherwise - the unit will first work unstably, and then completely stop.
Important! You should not change such devices yourself, it is best to contact the service center of the same company.
Each refrigerator model is accompanied by an instruction that must be carefully read and act in the order shown. On the control panel you will find a display, on it you can see information about the mode and errors. For models in which the freezer and refrigerator are in the same cabinet, temperature control is performed as follows:
- Measure the exact cooling temperature - to do this, place a glass of water in the central compartment.
- If the water cools to + 4 ° C - this is the best option, in the central part of the unit this temperature should be.
- If the temperature is 1-2 ° C higher or lower than optimal, adjustment is needed.
- On the control panel, find the Cooling Power or Fridge button and press it.
- If there is no button, find the temperature control knob and turn it to the desired angle - from + 1 ° C to + 7 ° C.
Important! The temperature does not have to be minimal - setting the regulator to a minimum leads to an increase in energy consumption.
Adjust the temperature of the freezer
Like the refrigerator, the freezer has a thermostat. She has more modes. For example, if there is an accelerated freezing mode, the temperature will drop by three days, and then return to standard. The mode is regulated using the button, as in the refrigerator.
No Frost Function
This feature provides an absolutely wonderful opportunity not to defrost your unit forcibly. Such refrigerators last longer, and care for them is minimal. To prevent ice from freezing, an additional fan is installed in the model. The temperature regime is set in the same way as in dual-chamber models.
If the indicator is blinking
With Samsung and some other models, quite often there are situations when the refrigerator seems to be working fine, and the indicator or display does not behave as it should - for example, blink. Incorrect behavior can be caused by a number of reasons, including those related to the temperature regime:
- For example, the temperature is higher than you set - perhaps due to the fact that the door often opens, and the house is very warm. In this case, you need to close the door and leave the unit alone for a couple of hours. He should bounce back.
- In the same way, the display and indicator react if the temperature mode is not set at all. They simply do not know how to behave, and they blink, urging the owner to order. The only way out is to set the mode.
- Most models have a separate indicator for the ice tray. It can also blink, signaling to the owner that the tray does not stand as it should. Change the position, and everything will return to normal.
- Sometimes indicators react in the same way if you moved the door shortly before. You’ll have to check how reliable the contacts are.
If none of the above reasons is there, and the indicator does not want to calm down, you will have to call the service center.

Atlant refrigerator - temperature control
How to set the temperature in the Atlant refrigerator? There is nothing complicated in this, if you know what temperatures are needed to store certain products. It makes no sense to chill fresh vegetables in the same way as meat or fish. Therefore, when sending products for storage in the refrigerator, consider the following data:
- temperature from + 1 ° С to + 3 ° С is suitable for meat, fish and eggs;
- from + 2 ° С to + 4 ° С - for sausage and some culinary products;
- from + 3 ° С to + 5 ° С - for dairy products, as well as prepared soups and meat dishes.
Single chamber “Atlas”
This is a fairly simple model of the popular Belarusian brand.The unit has only one door, behind which everything is located - several shelves and a freezer. You can easily find the regulator, and the installation is done using the handle, which is put in position from 1 to 7.
It is enough to turn the handle simply:
- The most popular position is 3. At the same time, all the refrigerator systems will work extremely correctly.
- There are situations when you need a stronger and longer cooling. Then you can select the mark 5 or even 7. But you can not allow the “Atlant” to work in this mode constantly - it turns out too much load on the compressor.
The temperature setting is no different from that used in a single-chamber refrigerator:
- We find the regulator.
- We turn the knob.
- For normal coordinated work, set it to 3.
- For more intensive operation of the freezer, we set the regulator to divisions from 4 to 7.
Important! If the regulator is set to division 3, this means that the temperature in the main compartment is from + 1 ° C to + 5 ° C, and in the freezer - -18 ° C.
Atlant with two compressors
On sale you can now find Belarusian refrigerators with two compressors. Such models and temperature controllers also have two - one is responsible for the refrigerator, the other for the freezer. Set them up separately:
- the main camera regulator can be set to division 3 or 4;
- freezers - from 3 to 5.
Electronic Atlanta Atlanta
Like all “smart” refrigerators, the Atlanta electronically controlled are equipped with the most modern devices, including separate temperature control. Such models have several indicators.
To set the temperature in the Atlant refrigerator of such a model, first:
- Turn on the refrigerator.
- Look at the control panel - there you will find information about the operation of the refrigerator and freezer.
- Open the door.
- Wait a minute - after that the alarm of the electronic unit should start working, it will also inform you about the shutdown of the unit or about interruptions in the power supply.
Important! Read also useful information on maintenance of equipment of this brand. Our article will help you understand some of the nuances. “Defrosting the Atlant refrigerator”.
It is very easy to adjust the temperature in the compartments of such a model:
- On the left side of the control panel you will find the control button for the freezer. Next to it is a window in which the parameters are visible. To the right is the refrigerator control button.
- Modes are set by simply pressing one of the buttons.
If the “Atlas” does not freeze
No refrigerator can be turned on immediately after it was brought. The unit should stand for about 8 hours, or even more. This is necessary so that the oil, which is located in the compressor and leaks during vibrations and inclinations, is again in its place.
At the same time, you can’t demand too much from the refrigerator. He will enter the mode far from immediately - he needs about a day to “sway”, but you must set the temperature right away. After a day, the device should reach the optimum temperature.

How to extend the life of the refrigerator?
A refrigerator is not the cheapest unit, so I don’t feel like changing it every year. Extending the life of a device can follow a few simple rules:
- make sure that the door is always tightly closed;
- change the seal in time if it is damaged;
- do not put hot or even warm food in the refrigerator;
- try to distribute the products so that they lie at some distance from each other;
- consider storage areas.
The name of the “storage area" may not seem entirely understandable to anyone. But everything is very simple - the products must be stored at the temperature that is needed for their preservation. The coldest thing is in the freezer, where they place what needs to be frozen:
- frozen vegetables and fruits;
- mushrooms for long-term storage.
In the "freshness zone", where the temperature is about 0 ° C, there are:
- milk and dairy products;
- meat that does not need to be frozen;
- some alcoholic drinks;
On the shelf that is closest to the freezer are usually:
- semi-finished products;
- the eggs.
Soups and sauces, as well as bread, can be stored in the middle of the refrigerator. Finally, the lowest shelf is for vegetables and fruits, as well as some pickles.

Some features of different models
All modern models have temperature controllers. True, they look different, and this sometimes confuses new owners.
Regulators can be:

Important! In models such as Biryusa or Atlant, one can find both one type of regulator and another. Stinol most often has two regulators, or even three (a separate one for super-cooling). Both adjustment methods have their pros and cons, but mechanically controlled models usually cost less.
There is nothing complicated in figuring out how to set the temperature in the refrigerator “Samsung”, “Atlant” or any other manufacturer. Read carefully the instructions for the equipment, take into account the recommendations for its operation, and then it will work properly even longer than you expected.
