Anyone done this with an Igloo chest freezer? Picked up a 7.2cu ft from Best Buy and i'm going to attempt to fiddle with the course set screw (assuming there is one.)
If anyone knows this works already i'd appreciate the response. If not, I will post pictures assuming I can make it work.
This particular Freezer has 2 sections on the fine control knob on the front. One section is labeled Refrigerate and one labeled Freeze. It has settings for both sections, and the knob clicks a little when you move between sections.
I've got it cranked as warm as it will go right now (allegedly as warm as 10C according to the manual.) But I don't have any thermal mass in there cool enough to get a proper reading yet with my digi.
I will edit this post whichever way it works out.
EDIT: It was just as easy as any of the other ones I saw in this thread. Faceplate for the fine control knob popped right out the front with a few clips holding it in place. Set screw was just on the end of the thermostat mechanism, with enough flex room in the tube to allow me to pull the whole contraption out the front and adjust the screw without being worried about breaking anything. I cranked it down about 2 turns. Going to let it settle and see what my digi reads inserted into a water bottle on the compressor hump.
Took all of about 30 seconds to fiddle with it. Thanks for the great thread, made this easy to do and saved me some money!!
