Check the temperature
If you have an empty refrigerator, make sure your freezer is set to the correct temperature. According to the FDA, your freezer should be 0 degrees Fahrenheit (-18 degrees Celsius).
Place a device thermometer in your freezer for a few minutes, then check it. If your freezer is not in the correct temperature range, adjust the settings before storing your food there again. Tyler Lizenby / CNET
