Great idea! I hadn't considered this one.

@DA01 I think that might ultimately be the best solution. Stuff in the fridge is going to freeze anyway, but at least the stuff in the freezer stays frozen.

@DA01 In the end, sure, we could work around the problem, but it would be nicer to just implement a solution where we have a working fridge that doesn't have to get broken and be replaced every year.

@DA01 1) It is a shared cabin, there is no knowing who would be the last person to leave before the cold season, and no guarantee that they would remember to shut off the fridge. 2) If we leave some meat in the freezer in October and nobody is coming back until next year, we don't want it to spoil.

@DA01 Really it comes down to this: I need a fridge that won't literally break in sub-freezing temperatures. Keeping food from freezing would just be icing on the cake.

Really, I would be fine with a fridge that doesn't keep food above 32º but where merely the compressor doesn't fail. But I can't find any reliable way to determine whether a specific refrigerator's compressor will fail at sub-freezing temperatures or not. As for the casters, I noticed that as well, but the sizing diagram appears to show that the listed height already does not include the casters. :(
