Refrigerator and Freezer Temperatures Were Adequate
LVT Number: #22776
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of a reduction in service. Tenant claimed that his refrigerator vibrated and that the refrigerator and freezer weren't cold enough. The DRA ruled against tenant based on its inspector's report. Tenant appealed and lost. Inspection showed that the freezer compartment vibrated a little from the electric fan, but that this condition was minor and stopped after each cycle began. The freezer temperature was zero degrees Fahrenheit and the refrigerator temperature was 35 degrees. This was within industry standards, and there was no evidence of excessive heat coming from the refrigerator at the time of inspection.
