    Is there a way to give it a bit more resolution in the 'fridge' side of things?
    Pretty sure I started a thread on what I did.......I did a basic conversion to my 15 year ish Engel, now I can dial in any temp and it maintains it exactly like modern fridges.. Got sick of frozen veg/salad.

    Check the thermostat bulb is clipped tight to the evaporater plate.

    If its not,that is your problem,it will run too cold.
