• This kit is comprised of a heater pad which gets its power from the thermostat voltage. It generates enough heat around the thermostat area to trick the thermostat into thinking that it's warmer than it actually is in the refrigerator. The heater pad will heat around the thermostat, inside the control housing only.


  • You may be able to solve your problem by installing a “Frigidaire garage ready refrigerator kit,” a heating coil to warm the air around the thermostat. The warmer air makes the compressor run longer and keeps frozen food, well, frozen. Check with the manufacturer to see if it makes one for your model.

They are designed to work indoors, protected from the weather, but in the colder temperatures of an unheated, uninsulated room, like a garage.
