You count on your refrigerator to keep your food cold enough to keep it from spoiling. If your food doesn't seem to be kept cool enough, there are a few different things that could be causing the problem. I had served my family food that had spoiled without me knowing it and we all got awfully sick. It was a terrible couple of days for everyone in the house. It took a few days for me to realize what had happened, but since then, I have paid careful attention to the temperature of the refrigerator and have learned how to maintain better control.
