Again...the cooling device...in this case, the refrigerator...doesn't

But there is always infiltration. No refrigerator can be 100%
insulated. So, if the outside temperature is very cold, the cold air
will infiltrate (actually, in the other direction...depending on the
temperature) into the refrigerator...which helps to cool the inside
air and contents.
Have a nice week...

What does it matter? Do you think the average person has any concept of
the fundamental laws of thermodynamics and conservation of energy? Leave
the guy alone. Anyone can make anyone else look stupid on the right
All I know is that I know nothing.
A fridge runs until the temp in the refrig section gets to 40 (or whatever
you've set it for). So, if the garage is 40, then the refrig stays at 40.
Now, as it happens, without the compressor running, the freezer section
warms up to 40 after a while, but that's not the refrigerator's fault!

Cold air temperature in the garage will result in low condensing
temperature. If the air is cold enough eventually there will not be
much of a pressure difference between the condenser and the
evaporator. When this happens the flow through the expansion device
does not work properly, and the entire refrigeration cycle is
As stated earlier, a fan speed control will reduce the airflow through
the condenser, reulting in higher condensing temperatures. A head
pressure control valve can also be used to artifically increase the
condensing temperature and allow for low air temperature operation.
If it is 67 outside, absent AC, it will be above 67 inside, since you have
heat loads indoors. And depending on your locale, you also need to lower
humidity, the 67 outdoors may be very humid and uncomfortable.
Just set it where you're comfortable. If she is most comfortable at 70-72,
There's no arguing with taste, or in this case, psychrometrics.
