I'm not sure if this has been posted before but I thought some of you would be interested in this. I know I was.

All the temps stop at 40......
My refrigerator was 50F all weekend. I'm just a wee bit curious about the bacon I had in there that was still wrapped up and sealed in one package, and another package opened. Somehow I missed them when I was relocating food.

Thanks for that link!

50 deg.F is not a good temperature for a refrigerator, especially for a couple days or more. Safe temperature is 1 deg above freezing to a max of 40 deg. F. to slow down bacteria growth. You may need to toss out some stuff to be safe.

The "guide" is dated August 1998, which makes the information almost 10-years-old. I think I would take it with a grain of salt.

1998? Seems like that was only yesterday.....

Yeah, I know. 50 degrees. More than a few hours. But shoot. Just had to hear it from someone else.
This stupid Maytag is but 7 years old and this is the fourth fan motor I've had to get.

It is my last Maytag, Whirlpool or whatever they are called now.
