Here's what the thermostat looks like on my Magic Chef 10cf chest freezer. I set the normal temp control dial to its midway point them used the coarse adjustment screw seen in the pic to bring the temp range up. Nothing scientific, I just screwed it in 4 or 5 full turns and let the freezer run overnight. Got pretty lucky. It was right at 37 degrees.

I am 8-10 FULL turns CLOCKWISE my set screw is all the way in and can't be turned anymore and my temp is at 1.8°c right now and the temp is slowing climbing. it went down to -2°c when I removed my E-Bay temp controller and let the keezer run on its own power.

all the Keezer compressor just kicked on at 2°c with my Large dial in the middle of the road. I can go another half turn to get it dialed in even more.

EDIT:
all systems are a go....I can now use my temp controller on my mini fridge to lager with...YUSSSSS
