Again...the cooling device...in this case, the refrigerator...doesn't care about the outside environment. It measures the INSIDE temperature...and cycles when the INSIDE temperature fluctuates.
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.

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 subject.
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 disrupted.
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.

Not bad..

Wrong.
Why? So far, you are wrong. 60F...run the AC...its not going to hurt a thing..and its actually cheaper to run the lower the outdoor temps..

No.
You need to get a competent tech out to check it for you before you inversly trip the flux capacitor out of phase with the synchrometer..
Really...seriously...get it checked..

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, then fine.
There's no arguing with taste, or in this case, psychrometrics.

Get a programmable thermostat. Set it to 70-72 when you guys go to sleep...kick it up to 78 or so about an hour later.

As you've already read, you're incorrect.

Could be a lot of reasons. Get a tech to check it out.
