Why won’t RV freezers keep ice cream frozen? Meat freezes, ice freezes but ice cream is always mush.

Ours does fine with ice cream treats and single serve cups. Never tried a half gallon.

Ice Cream is easily scooped at 6*F - 10*F

To keep it frozen hard temp needs to be -5*F - 0*F

Most RV absorption fridges freezers are at 10*F - 5*F

WHen an RV absorption fridge has been properly installed, has 0 clearances, no dead air spaces and good Draft it is quite capable of sustaining 0*F or lower temps
Unfortunately, RV MFGs do NOT install them properly....too wide of clearances, dead air spaces, lousy draft.
But they do shine when it comes to Bells & Whistles


Is it time for your medication or mine?

I added a computer fan inside the fridge. Freezer easily keeps ice cream frozen.

Mine's too darned hard to scoop. I'd prefer it a bit softer.

Ours keeps ice cream at a great firmness for scooping. We have remote temp monitor and freezer runs about 0 to -5.

At 8 out of 9 on the temp setting ice cream is soft as soft serve.

Mine doesn't keep it frozen either. Maybe a piece of dry ice under it?

Set my fridge on high Friday to get a quick cool down and forgot about it till Sunday past, everything in the fridge was frozen top to bottom, and that was in my fw, even a dish of peaches on the bottom shelf was frozen solid, must be a dam good fridge to do that, won't make that mistake again, back to a 3 setting and everything good today but lost a lot of produce.
