Keep your garage refrigerator working all winter long with a garage refrigerator heater kit

Garage Refrigerator Heater KitWhen winter hits and the temperature drops, make sure the refrigerator in your garage keeps working by installing a Garage Refrigerator Heater Kit.

Your refrigerator only creates cold air when it needs to maintain a consistent temperature inside your refrigerator.  During the winter, when outside temperatures drop below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, your refrigerator senses this and stops producing the cold air that keeps your items cool and your freezer items frozen.

A garage refrigerator heater kit provides enough heat to trick the thermostat into running the compressor. More cold air is then produced keeping items in your freezer frozen and your food safe.

Made by Electrolux, this kit can be used in many top-mount (meaning freezer on top) refrigerator models made by Frigidaire and Kenmore. Installation instructions are included along with the part.
