This model uses electronic temperature sensors, not a mechanical thermostat. There is no heater kit you can install on this unit to make it perform correctly in cold weather.

Are there any other options?
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 months ago.

Not on an electronic model, no. There are only two options for garage refrigerators, the Whirlpool Gladiator or the Frigidaire with the mechanical thermostat that you can get a garage kit for.
