Fridge is kept in unheated garage. Freezer doesn't work during winter months and everything unthaws?

Thermostat is typically in refrigerator section. So if it's say 32 in garage and knowing that temperature is measured in refrigerator, compressor has to run very little or not at all to satisfy thermostat in refrigerator. Thus freezer doesn't get much colder than refrigerator because compressor doesn't have to run.

Refrigerator repair problem

The answer to your question is an easy one! But not one you are going to like..

There is only one refrigerator/freezer combo, that I know of, that will work in a garage during the winter months and that is the gladiator..

I pulled up your owners manual and on page 9 it says
"do not install the refrigerator where the temperature will go below 60'f because it will not run often enough to maintain proper temperatures"

This is in every owners manual I have ever looked at with minor differences in the temperature rating.

It has one thermostat.. and that thermostat is looking for 36'-40' typically so if you get a string of days that are 40' out then the fridge may only come on a couple times a day causing the freezer to defrost but the fridge to stay normal. The fridge may freeze on colder days.

This issue is nothing new and salesmen sell you a fridge that they say will work in the garage but the owners manual says otherwise.

Frigidaire came out with a garage kit that did not work.. Then a control board to monitor run time and that doesn't work either..

A stand alone freezer will be fine.. or a stand alone fridge will be ok too unless it freezes from outdoor temperature.. But a combo will not work unless it is a gladiator. Or some very expensive "dual cool" units that no one would spend that kind of money for something in the garage.

I'm in Ohio so I am familiar with the Northeast :)

you dont say how old the unit is or the make,if i assume its an old one i would buy new cos its cheaper to run,make sure its able to run in you garage temperature as most new units will only operate at +10C to +35C and you will need to be able to have one that runs at cooler temp during winter.(depending where you live).i bought mine from a garage sale after checking the rating plate,.paid a quarter of shop price for one that was only 9months old.

I keep a freezer in my garage, why does it stop working when its cold outside? Is there anything I can do to prevent this? Thanks

as a general rule, most all refrigeration that is designed as an indoor unit, should be kept in an ambient temp no lower than 60 degrees. I would start here.

Our garage refrigerator is getting old and we wan ted to replace it. 2 people have told us if a newer one is in an area where it gets 40 ior below we may have problems. True? How old must it be to avoid...

All of the new one will not work well in a garage. Your best bet will be a unit that is more than 7 years old. If you cant find one try a Hotpoint, this is GEs little brother. The hotpoints have an older design. I use one in my garage Model # HTS18GBSWW You should be able to find this at any appliance store around $500.

GFI outlet is tripping because of refrigerator in the garage.

Hi: Yes, replace the GFI outlet. A refrigerator should not be plugged into one for what you are experiencing and food loss. This was an easy answer for me, but unfortunately not for you The owners manual covers this, but us men don't read them (Well I had to as I worked with them for 30 years). Good luck, Jeff

Whirlpool Freezer doesn't freeze?

insulated or not, garages are generally too cold for new energy efficient frigs to operate. ambient temp needs to be above 60 to work efficiently.
