Just to settle a ‘discussion’ with my husband, and to clear up the issue in my own mind, please help me out with this one.
Hubby says he’s fixed the problem of ice in the back of the fridge by turning the settings ‘down’. To me, this means making it colder, but then why would the ice melt? This doesn’t make sense. To me, he turned the settings up, thus raising the fridge temperature and making the ice melt.
He then said that he had turned the settings from 1.5 to 1.25, at which point I got all confused about positive and negative numbers (and probably made an ass out of myself – it has been known to happen…) but I still think the end result was that he turned the temperature in the fridge UP, thus melting the ice.
So, does ‘up’ and ‘down’ here refer to power settings? Direction of the knob? I’m thinking another male brain may be needed to translate for me…
However, I still think the best way to solve the problem of ice in the back of the fridge is to clean the fridge out, thus making it run more efficiently, and keep it at the original temperature (or setting, or whatever…)
