You need to explain your problem a bit more carefully.

1) If you don't want to use robots, there is no reason to use a requester chest.
2) If you are simply using an inserter to add items to a chest, and don't want the chest to fill up completely, you can just limit the chest size (red X at the bottom right of the chest inventory)
3) If you're using an inserter to add items to a chest and want more precise control, you can run a wire from the chest to the inserter and set the inserter to work only on (Everything < xxx) where xxx is the (approx) number of items you want in the chest.

If none of these is what you're trying to do, please clarify the question.

What he wants is robots to fill to 4k if below 2k, a switching hysteresis.

This is impossible with a single requester chest. You can't read contents and set requests at the same time.

However, you can do it with combinators and a buffer chest.
