Hello all and thanks for taking the time to read this,

We have a True T49F freezer and in the future will use it as such. Right now, however, I would like to use if for Fermenting our pilot batches of beer. To do this, I need the temp to be in the 52 to 70 deg. F range. I have a Johnson controls A419 external thermostat that I have plugged in to the main power and it works fine until the temp rises past the set point. Then it won't come back on. I have to unplug and wait for several minutes before the compressor will restart. Is it possible to make this unit do what I want with what I have or do I need a different internal thermostat. Is it possible at all.
