Have you always been bothered that your Samsung refrigerator has been displaying the unit Celsius when you’re used to Fahrenheit, or vice versa?
Although it feels easy enough to change the temperature display, you can’t help but imagine that you might just mess with the other different settings in your refrigerator while trying to change it.
Don’t worry, though, because we wrote this article to help you change the temperature display of your refrigerator to your preferred unit (Celsius/Fahrenheit).
The instructions will be easy to follow. The best part is that it should barely take any of your time and you can do it all by yourself.
How do I change the temperature unit on my Samsung refrigerator?
Changing the temperature unit displayed (Celsius/Fahrenheit) on your Samsung refrigerator can be done by pressing one of the buttons on the fridge for 3 seconds.
The button you need to press will depend on the refrigerator’s model, but this could be easily identified through the user manual.
Here is a list of the most common buttons being pressed to change the temperature display:
- If the refrigerator has a Door Alarm Button, press and hold this button for 3 seconds to switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit.
- If the refrigerator has an Energy Saver Button, press and hold this button for 3 seconds to switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit.
- If the refrigerator has a Lighting Button, press and hold this button for 3 seconds to switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit.
Moreover, you can also change the temperature display in a different way if your Samsung refrigerator is a Family Hub Model:
- Step 1: On your refrigerator’s smart fridge panel, open the Refrigerator Manager widget and select Settings.
- Step 2: Scroll through the list of settings and select the Temp. Unit option.
- Step 3: You can tap the °C or °F symbols to switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit respectively.
What temperature should my Samsung refrigerator be in Celsius/Fahrenheit?
Your Samsung refrigerator’s temperature should be set to 3°C/38°F. This is the ideal setting for storing food and other contents inside your refrigerator.
Any temperature setting lower than the given 3°C/38°F can cause problems such as your Samsung refrigerator freezing your food and contents and/or causing some refrigerator parts to malfunction.
On the other hand, anything relatively higher than 3°C/38°F can cause the refrigerator to activate its High Temperature Alarm. This tells you that the set temperature is not suitable for storing food and could lead to spoilage.

On Family Hub Models, you can change the refrigerator’s temperature through the smart fridge panel:
