the Hunter Energy Monitor: Called an Air Stat on the packaging,
Model 42205 (there is a 42206 for 220, but you have to order it)
built by:
Hunter Fan Company
2500 Frisco Ave.
Memphis, TN 38114

P# 901-745-9222 CT 8AM-5PM

You can buy these at Builder's Square for $28. The operation is simple: Plug
the frige/freezer into the monitor, plug the monitor in the wall, put the probe
(has four feet of wire) in the frige/freezer, set the monitor to the desired
temp, and your off. The monitor will handle 15 Amps, and has programming modes
for running a Air Conditioner, but aren't really needed. (just override for the
temp you want and put it in bypass) temp range is from 40 to 90 degrees, and
will keep temp -1...+2 degrees from that. WOrks by cycling the power to the
Frige, will stay off for min of 4 mins, to save ware & tear on the compessor.
Very good unit, simple to install.

One Weak Point: it runs off of a AA battery, if the battery runs down the unit
will not work! e.g. the frige will be *off*! So one needs to figure out a way to
remind oneself to change it.
