Default-setting heat map

At the default setting, the body of the fridge stayed below 40 degrees F, but temperatures were still a little warm.

Coldest-setting heat map

The fridge still came in a degree or two warmer than the target temperature when we dialed the fridge down to its minimum setting of 34 degrees.
