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?

Temperature controller. Search here, there's tons of information.

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.
