My Bosch Fridge has a temperature range of +2 to +8 C on LED at top. Ideal
temp is supposed to be +4 thats all book says. What I need to know is
..............silly question............is +2 colder in the fridge or warmer

Water freezes at +/- 0 deg C. It's hot when the weatherman/girl says it's
+30 deg C.
Water boils at 100 deg C.

You can interpolate from there!

+4 deg C is 'hotter' than +2 deg C
+2 deg C is 'colder than +4 deg C


BTW: when being converted from Fahrenheit to Centigrade; I was taught a
useful rule-of-thumb ; -

- 10 to 0 bloody cold
0 to +10 Cold
10- 20 warm
20 ~ 30 Hot
30+ bloody hot.

I just used to reckon 0 = Freezing, less being even colder.

20 (=68F in real money) a nice comfortable late spring, summer, early
autumn day. IE when it's not *searing*. Like today here in Leeds
AAMOF.

Get a thermometer and play about with it to get the right temp.

I have (by the sound of it) the same fridge - the one with the
pull-out drawers? I thought 4C was too warm, so it runs at the 2C level,
which is actually 4C according to a fridge thermometer placed in the
middle. I suspect the LED/presets give an optimistic account.

It reads the temperature from a probe buried in the side of the fridge
so it won't actually be a true reading of the exact temperature. The
probes are also prone to failing, the Bosch repair kit is basically a
set of connectors to bypass it as it's impossible to get at.
