Refrigerator Issues

I have a 2016 Classic and have experienced refrigerator issues since delivery. Even prior to pickup, the original refrigerator had to be replaced as it was not cooling. The unit continued to have issues. Last June the cooling unit on the new refrigerator was replaced and a vent fan installed. After being in storage for 4 months and not using the refrigerator I arrived at my winter site. Refrigerator worked fine when empty (temp was at 33 with setting at 5). After putting some items in temp rose to 39-40, but I assumbed temp would decrease after door was closed over night. This morning temp was at 42 and has now gone to 43. Refrigerator is less than 1/2 filled. Any thoughts or suggestions. Thanks

Are you putting already cold food and drinks in? You can't put in a warm 12 pack of cans and expect the refer to bring them down to temp in reasonable time like your home refer.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

I note that you are from Texas. If your outside temperatures are in the mid to high 80's (or even higher) that's probably as good as you can expect from an adsorption fridge.
