Quick Answers

 

What is the correct temperature for a refrigerator?

 

Keep refrigerators between 34 and 40 degrees F. Above 40 degrees, foods spoil rapidly. Check the temperature with a thermometer.

 

For more information about food safety and proper refrigerator temperature, see Keep your refrigerator at the right temperature for food safety.
