I have read several posts on fridge improvement by improving ventilation, adding insulation i.e.

I note that my compressor does not run that much even with close to the coldest setting on the thermostat. I see the sensor of the thermostat (the end of the white steel cable/pipe) is somewhere behind the evaporator, meaning it is in one of the coldest places in the fridge. Has anyone moved the sensor further down in the fridge (out of the freezer)? Mine seems to be secured in some way. How to loosen? Do I need to dismount the evaporator?

The copper-tubes to the evaporator is molded inside the foam insulation, so dismounting the evaporator is not an option. As shown in the topics"Isotherm fridge failure" and "Fridge efficiency", you will ned a bit of carpentry to get access to the bottom of the fridge. If your compressor can keep the fridge about 5 deg. celsius, without running much, you are lucky.
My problem, as most of the Isotherm owners, is that the compressor is working overtime and still not is able to maintain a decent low temperature in the fridge.
If the temperature in your fridge is OK, and you can make decent ice-cubes for your drinks, I see no reason to worry about the position of the sensor.

The design of the Isotherm unit in the hanse is based on meassuring and controlling the temperature in the ice box. Depending on the sorrounding temperature you will get warmer or colder then expected in the rest of the fridge. I installed the Isotherm Smart Energy Control to my 400 last year. It helped me in reducing the power consumption as well as getting a more stabile temperature in the fridge. However, the temperature in the ice box is not controlled any more and it happends that things that should be freezed (like icecream, ice cubes ...) are not. Best would be to have dual sensors but I have not find any such products.
