Default Outside Refrig/Freezer in Garage does not stay cold in cold weather
Model Number: MRT15CNEW6   Brand: Kelvinator   Age: 5 - 10 years

We have this same problem every winter when the outside temp drops below 20 degrees.
The freezer starts to thaw out the frozen foods and the refrigerator does not seem to get as cold.
This unit is installed in our attached garage. It works fine otherwise. You can hear the compressor kick on. Is is something to do with the exterior moisture setting?
Please help before I lose all of my meat!

Unhappy mrt15csew4

I have this model in my garage and it is COLD out there. The fridge with run for a while but then pops the breaker. Do you think if I bring the fridge in the house it will solve the problem??
