The ideal temperature is between 34 and 38 so is sounds like you are little under and I therefore wonder if you may have suffered some freezer burn, which will damage the meat over that period of time. Granted your 15 year old viewing would help prevent some of that, but surely he sleeps so there would be periods of prolonged cold. Also after he has left the door open the refrigerator is going to kick on to bring the temperature back to your settings meaning the meat was being blasted with colder air – again risking the chance of damage from freezer burn.
Otherwise I’m sort of at a loss for more ideas. Maybe someone else will chime in here, but in all honesty I don’t recall anyone reporting this problem before! Sorry! Ron
