Thanks - looks like this is pretty much the same stuff. Non-hardening sealant dough good in
extreme temps.Any advice on the thermostat I should order?

My GDM-12 had its thermostat replaced at some point with the incorrect one. After a thorough
investigation, I installed a Ranco A12-701 constant cut-in thermostat and it has run perfect
ever since. $4...

Both upper and lower fans are going - I'll go with your recommendations to replace it with a
new stock thermostat.The compressor also needs some new rubber feet - it sounds like marbles

I'm just using it as a fridge right now to store bottles of beer. It's completely stock. It

Ok thanks for the reassurances...WTF are they painting it with if NOT a high-temp paint for
god's sake. Charge me an extra buck and do it right from the factory sheesh.

So I'm assuming this can't be normal, can it? Used my brand new Bayou propane burner and the
black enamel paint was turned into grey ash wherever it got hot. Simple, 1 hour extract brew
