How to Reset the Fridge Temp on My GE

GE refrigerators come in many varieties, from side-by-side refrigerators and freezers to refrigerators with freezers on the top or bottom. The temperature controls for the GE are set in the factory for 37 degrees Fahrenheit for the fridge and 0 degrees Fahrenheit for the freezer. You can change the refrigerator temperature within a range of 34 to 46 degrees Fahrenheit and the freezer temperature between -6 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit. Resetting the fridge will return the temperature to the factory settings.

Step 1

Pull the GE refrigerator away from the wall so you can reach the plug.

Step 2

Unplug the refrigerator from the wall. Leave it unplugged for 30 seconds to one minute.

Step 3

Plug the fridge back into the wall.

Step 4

Open the GE fridge and check the temperature readout for the fridge and freezer by pressing "Home" and "Refrigerator" and "Home" and "Freezer." They should be set back to 37 and 0 degrees Fahrenheit, respectively.
