Default Johnson a419 controller on mini fridge

Hi, I am a new owner of this controller. I set it last night with the settings:
SP - 68
Diff - 1
Asd - 6

I noticed my fridge is staying at the room temp 56 degrees. Anyone
Tell me what I set wrong or recommended settings for mini fridge. Thanks in advance.

Maybe its just too cold in that room for the inside of the fridge to even warm up to 69 so the temp controller tells it to turn on. Does the fridge kick on? It shouldnt.
