Hi, i'm an HVAC contractor, and although i'm certain you can put a temperature sensitive switch before the power to your freezer, causing it to
short cycle. This would not be an ideal setup. A freezer and a fridge are completely different animals. Your going to waste a lot of electricity and
have problems with the coil freezing up. A converted freezer is also not going to remove the humidity from the box or conversely remove too much.
If you decide to give it a shot, just pull the thermostat out from the freezer, it'll have a tiny little flat tip screw that usually has a slash of
paint across it to show proper placement, every brand is different but by turning that screw you'll change the thermostat. Id suggest measuring the
temp while running(after several hours) then turn the screw half a turn either direction and check temp again after an hour or so. Mark which way you
moved it, then make adjustments as necessary until your above freezing.
