  2. My fridge is sitting at 5° but set at 2° - is it broken?

    My fridge is sitting at 5° but set at 2° - is it broken?

    All fridges and freezers, whether commercial or domestic work in the same way. When turned on, the cooling systems start running and bring the cabinet temperature down to the set point.
    Once the cabinet temperature reaches the set point, the compressor and other components stop running.
    The temperature in the cabinet will slowly rise and when it reaches 6 (or what ever maximum differential point it is configured to) the cooling system again starts running and brings the air temperature back down to the set point.
    So the cooling system cycles from low to high and by doing so, it saves you power and money by not running 24/7 yet still maintaining the temperature of the items stored in it.

    Please keep in mind the following points:
