Incidentally, we turned the temps up to 40F in fridge due to ice on lettuce and 8F in freezer due to ice cream so cold it was work just to dip some into a bowl. Life is good w/o Norcold!

Frank,

You will find that if you leave the ice maker off for 24 hours your ice cream will be easy to scoop. I have played with this and cannot detect that the freezer digital temperature display reflects the colder temp when the ice maker is on. Not sure why that is unless the software is programmed to return the set point temp to the readout display when the ice maker is on, thus hiding the super freeze mode. I have been meaning to place a wireless thermometer inside the freezer to investigate this but have not gotten around to it. Do you have any extra round-tu-its laying around! We keep the freezer set point to the highest it will go, I think 8 degrees and the ice cream still gets as hard as a brick when the ice maker is on but the readout says the freezer temp is 8. Go figure.

Bob

x2. Same thing with ours. We are in Kingsland, Ga for a few days and the water here is unacceptable for making ice, so I turned off the ice maker. Just now we had a couple Kondike bars and they were not their usual brick hardness. Temp reading is still 8F in freezer, so, as you say, it must not be displaying the actual temp at one point or the other. But...I don't really care. Life is so good without the Norcold. I sleep better, too.

Yes Frank, scoop-able ice cream is life's "frosting on the cake".

Got to love that Samsung.
