How to Change GE Refrigerator from Celsius to Fahrenheit

The following are ways to change from Celsius to Fahrenheit on GE refrigerators:

GE Bottom-Freezer Built-In Refrigerator

To change from Celsius to Fahrenheit on this model, press the button that reads “Temp Display ⁰C/⁰F.” It is that easy!

You can find this button on the temperature control panel.

GE Side-by-Side Refrigerator

Take a look at the control panel. Then, press the cold/warm buttons on both the fridge and the freezer temperature displays together. Hold the four buttons down for three seconds, and “0” will appear on the two temperature displays.

Then, press the “Express Thaw” function for the “0” on the displays to disappear. You can also press any other function button in-between for the “0” to disappear.

Next, change the left-hand display, which displays the freezer temperature, to “1”. Then, change the right-hand temperature display, which displays the refrigerator temperature, to “7”.

Again, press “Express Thaw,” and “F” or ”C” will appear on the right (refrigerator) display panel. Use the “Colder” button to switch between C/F and make your selection.

Saving Selection

To save your selection, press “Express Thaw” and wait three seconds. Finally, press “Express Thaw” for the last time to go back to the usual display.

Keep in mind that this step applies ONLY to GE Side-by-Side refrigerators with Custom Cool. Additionally, their temperature displays show the actual measured compartment temperatures in either ⁰F or ⁰C.

This setting may seem a bit difficult but it is not. Once you start, it is easy to navigate. However, according to the manufacturer’s recommendation, a service technician should carry out this procedure. Furthermore, changing from Celsius to Fahrenheit may not be necessary unless you altered the setting before now.

Quick Note

If you are looking for how to change a GE fridge from Celsius to Fahrenheit, you can do so on the temperature control panel. And the temperature control panel is in either of these two places: the dispenser panel or the upper rear wall of the fridge section.

If none of these two settings answer your question, consult your user’s manual if it is still handy. Otherwise, contact GE Cares for further assistance.
