Refrigerators and Freezers

Question: What's the best thermostat setting for refrigerators and freezers?

In "normal" fridge or freezer conditions, i.e. in terms of the quantity of food stored and the room temperature, the thermostat should be set to medium-low. The maximum setting should only be selected in exceptional circumstances, such as when restoring operation after a power cut or when temporarily exceeding the recommend storage capacity.
