I have a Kenmore side by side with the fresh food side not cold enough. I can't find a thermostat to change however it does have two levers to control the fresh food side and freezer side. Yesterday I moved the fresh food lever to the coldest position with no notice3able effect. The temperature is about 55 degrees. The freezer side is about 13 degrees. I do not have a manual so I need help in setting the controls. On my older fridge, a top freezer model, the freezer usage lever affects the fresh food temperature. Is it the same for the side by side????? The two levers on the side by side have the following markings from left to right. Cold, initial setting, coldest. I know I should have the fresh food side set to the coldest but what should I set the freezer to?????????

Usually, but without knowing which exact model you have and how it was designed, it is impossible to say for certain.

** I know I should have the fresh food side set to the coldest but what should I set the freezer to? **

Whatever is required to achieve the wanted temperatures. There are no fixed 'right' settings the controls should be at, it all depends on conditions.

BTW. You may be avoiding the fact that there may be a problem in the appliance causing the condition. The controls shouldn't usually need to be adjusted *dramatically* without good reason.

You can read about possibilities for cooling problems in frost free refrigerators at the following link:
