Unfortunately, only some of the higher-end Frigidaire refrigerators allow you to toggle the degree displays between Celsius and Fahrenheit. If your refrigerator reads in Celsius and you would like a Fahrenheit reading, you can always place a separate Fahrenheit thermometer somewhere in your refrigerator's fresh food compartment. This option will also provide a more-accurate temperature reading, because the displays on the refrigerator's control panel are only for setting the fresh food compartment's desired temperature.


Be aware of the other controls on your refrigerator's control panel. The control panel also allows you to turn off all refrigeration. Make sure you don't accidentally execute this control--all the food in your refrigerator may perish as a result.

You can change the temperature display on your Frigidaire refrigerator from Celsius to Fahrenheit.

Refrigerators these days have some pretty advanced controls that allow you to set precise temperatures for the food and beverages in your refrigerator or freezer. These temperature displays can sometimes be a bit tricky and/or show the temperatures in Celsius format when you want Fahrenheit. Fortunately, some of the more-advanced refrigerators allow you to change this setting.
