Myth - Refrigerators are suppose to add coldness to the food inside of it.
Truth - Refrigerators do not add cooling, they actually remove heat from the food and the air inside it. This heat is then transferred to the exterior condenser and is absorbed by the air in the room.

Myth - The thermostat varies the amount of cooling the refrigerator generates.
Truth - It simply turns the system on and off to get an average temperature. For example, the compressor will run at 100% until the thermostat senses a temperature of say 10F and then it will stop it altogether until it rises to 38F. However, the food will maintain a more constant temperature somewhere in the middle.
