Depending on the brand . A refrig thermostat , is designed to cycle off at 38-42 degrees . If your " unheated " area , gets below 38 degrees , then the refrig will thing the temp is cold enough , and will not cycle on , therefore , the food in the freezer WILL thaw out and probably ruin .
If your brand cycles on the freezer thermostat , then the " unheated " area , will be ok .

Yes, You can use most any refrigerator in an unheated area. Just be aware that if it is in a below freezing area for a long period of time that the cold may penetrate enough to get the refrigerator temperatures below freezing also.

SOURCE: I have a refrigerator in
it will not work in sub freezing temps, the thermastat will not kick on if the temp is below 34 thus the freezer coil will thaw and anything is the freezer will melt, anything in the fresh food section below 32 will freeze 60 or below not recomended

Sears is technically correct. It wouldn't work with the old coolant either. The principle is simple. The refrigerator is the same temp as your garage - it is not running. It must be in a 60 degree room to work properly. The sensor to turn it on is in the fresh food compartment, and it never calls for cooling; therefore it appears you freezer only is out - but they both work together. Hope this helps!

You need to put a heat source in the fridge compartment near the fridge thermostat. Try putting a lower wattage bulb (40w) into the fridge compartment. Or even try this, take the door switch out of the fridge and short the two leads together. Tape the exposed ends with electrical tape and that should provide enough heat to keep your compressor on long enough to keep the freezer cold. Just remember to put the switch back in in the spring and summer months or you will have a real high electrical bill. Hope this helps you.
