It's a typical looking fridge.
Any ideas would be great. Thanks in advance!
Yes, it will work. I've been doing this for several years with an old broken fridge. I put frozen 2 liter PET bottles in it for cooling and a small heater when warming is required (which isn't very often). I monitor the temp in the fridge and add the frozen water bottles as needed. It works much better than I ever expected and it's really not much trouble to switch out the bottles. This time of year, I just put the bottles outside my back door and jack frost freezes them for me at zero cost.
