Best temp for frige

Ok I have my 74 with the original frige. My question is what is the best temp for startup. It seems to be really slow to get cold.

Our 1977 fridge setting is on about 1.5/5. Too much more than that and the vegetables freeze.

These Dometics do take a few hours to get to temperature. I'm guessing it's about 3 hours to get to the proper temperature in ours.
