First, check the temperature settings on your refrigerator. The optimal temperature settings should be around 38° to 36° Fahrenheit. If your refrigerator does not display a temperature setting, use a freestanding appliance thermometer to get an accurate reading inside your fridge.

Garage Refrigerator Heater Kit keeps your garage refrigerator working during winter

Garage Refrigerator Heater Kit

Make sure the refrigerator in your garage is ready for winter with a Garage Refrigerator Heater Kit.

As the temperature outside your refrigerator drops below 40 degrees, your refrigerator senses this and tells the freezer, “No more cold air for me thanks.” The freezer stops producing cold air and the items inside your freezer start to melt, resulting in spoiled food.

The Garage Refrigerator Heater Kit solves this problem by providing enough heat to trick the thermostat into running the compressor. More cold air is then produced keeping items in your freezer frozen.

This kit made by Electrolux can be used in many top-mount (freezer on top) refrigerator models made by Frigidaire and Kenmore. Installation instructions are included.

You can buy a Garage Refrigerator Kit at EveryAppliancePart.com.
