Thanks for the info.
Here is what I know.
#1, the thermostat was not originally mounted to the evaporator, it was just 'coiled' up. This was the original setup and it worked fine originally. This is exactly how I installed the new thermostat.
#2, in regards to setting the temperature, yes I understand the temperature control knob on the thermostat. In its lowest counter-clockwise position (warmest) It will continue to run temperature well into the upper 40's. Much colder than appropriate...
Any other ideas/???
