The ideal refrigerator temperature range is 1°-4.5°C (34°-40°F) . Bacterial and mold growth are considerably slowed down at these temperatures, thus retarding food spoilage. Since water freezes at 0°C (32°F), this prevents fresh foods from freezing, although when the temperature is at the low end of the range, some areas in the refrigerator may be below the freezing point.

Why is temperature controlled in refrigerators?

simply to keep food fresh. If the fridge's temp is too high, food will warm to room temperature and go off faster. Too cold, then the food will freeze! Everytime you open the fridge door you are letting room temperature air inside, increasing the temperature of the air inside the fridge, therefore the fridge (if automatic) will measure the temperature and make the air to the right temperature.
