Anyone know why the temp in our "american-style" fridge has suddenly dropped without the control being adjusted??

had the door been left open slightly?

lol, mine isn't an american style but i find if it get very empty, suddenly everything freezes. very annoying. i have to adjust the temp control throughout the week as the weekly shop gets eaten

I always thought that happened when the outside temp dropped. Our fridge seems to get colder as the house gets colder ( or is that just me being dim!)

if its like mine the controls for temp will be on the outside

just within reach of small children's fingers

How much should I increase the temp? Switched it from 4 to 6 degrees c last night but veg still frozen solid!! Alarm didn't go off so don't think door was left open. Can't bear thought of getting engineer out as blinking thing only few weeks out of guarantee (typical)

Dont they get colder the more the fridge is full?

mine does this sometimes too, although not everything ets frozen, just odd bits and bobs.

the most recent episode always result in the iceberg lettuce being frozen which I thought was rather amusing.
