would it be best to have a refrigerator set at 29 degrees or 43.5 degrees celcius?

If they are both celsius -- you don't want either setting.

I do not think anyone would be interested in setting the refrigerator at 43.5° Celsius because it is hotter than most countries on earth.

According to general recommendations, it should be set between 35 to 38 degrees Fahrenheit, or 1.7 to 3.3 Celsius.

Mathmate and Ms. Sue were too nice to tell you that you misspelled celsius. They wrote it correctly but you may not have noticed. Please note the correct spelling.
