Default Deep freezer temp issues

I just picked a freezer up from lowes for my first keg. Man it's either freezing or off even at the lowest setting. What do you guys do for this?

Right, I often wonder why they don't build a larger range into the stock controller for being able to use it as a backup refrigerator in addition to a freezer. It's standard practice for us to use an aftermarket controller, Johnson A419 or Ranco equivalent.
