It seems to me that if the defrost cycle is working properly, then there would be no "fighting" with the external thermostat. That is, if it's a properly working classic timer-based defrost. If the external thermostat kicks on, and the defrost cycle is starting (or starts during the cooling), then defrost would just proceed, and the fridge would warm slightly, and the external controller would continue to stay on until the defrost cycle ended and returned the fridge to the normal cooling cycle and eventually got to the external controller's temperature set point. It might take 20-30 minutes longer. What's also odd is that I haven't heard of anyone else who has had this problem before. Have you got a new-fangled fridge with an unusual defrost cycle, or was it an old fridge with a defective one? Or maybe there's something I'm missing, in which case I would like to know what's different here. Calvin Perilloux Middletown, Maryland, USA Return to table of contents
