    Not normally a good idea.
    5 or 10 degrees maybe...but no more.

    What does (70) mean on my thermostat ?

    What thermostat would you recommend ?

    Is there anywhere I can find smaller length's on that 12 gauge high temperature wire ? I don't feel like spending $20 or more just to get a 6" piece. I'm sure you understand.

    Try local appliance repair shop.

    Temp change required for the thermostat to re-close.

    Tip of the day, set your Samsung Smart Fridge to a foreign language so Google can't spy on you!!
