Thank you for contacting us.
When the default value for RadNumericUpDown does not fall in the range you set, the default value is the Minimum. This is the expected behavior.
I tried to reproduce the problem, but to no avail. Attached you can find the sample I made. Please, feel free to modify it so that you could reproduce the problem. I will be glad to assist you further.
