The urge to enjoy some fresh fruits and veggies hits. But when you open the door and find that all of the items in the crisper drawer are frozen, it can be a major disappointment. The only thing that might be worse is digging into those leftovers you’ve been so looking forward to and finding them spoiled. We’ve all been there at one point or another. The frustrations that come with finding food spoiled or frozen beyond salvaging can be both exasperating and costly since those items will likely have to find a new home in the trash. Fortunately, there is an easy fix to help keep your food crisp and fresh.
The Right Temperature
The cause of the spoiled food carnage in your fridge is likely an incorrect temperature setting. Refrigerators are designed to keep food eatable by slowing the growth of bacteria without freezing. Bacteria growth explodes if food is kept at a temperature above 40 degrees Fahrenheit, and foods freeze at temperatures below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Therefore, the optimal temperature setting for your fridge is between the 32 and 38 degrees.
If you find that your temperature settings are at the optimal level, but your food is still spoiling quicker than it should, it might be time to call in a repair expert to service the appliance. It is possible that there is another underlying issue that needs to be repaired before your fridge will work that way it needs to. Fortunately, we know a thing or two about refrigerator maintenance.
