My wife and I recently moved and there is no room for our "big" refrigerator in our tiny kitchen so it is sitting unused in the basement. It is a modern, electronically controlled unit and I am concerned that using an external temp controller, an STC-1000, to effectively unplug it repeatedly throughout the day may damage it. Does anyone have any experience with this kind of situation?
We plan on moving again in a year or two and the fridge will be put back into service then. Space is at a premium in our current place, so I would prefer not to bring in another fridge/freezer if I don't have to but I also don't want to explain to SWMBO why the fridge we haven't finished paying for is broken.
The fridge is an LG LMX25964SS
Thanks in advance for any advice.
