    There shouldn't be any serious lose of food. However, the refrigerator will remove the heat gained during that period? I'm not sure someone would need to calculate the run time to reach Thermostat Temp before shut off. What I mean is it takes less work to keep something cool than to cool it back down. I'm not sure the deferential cost, it would be a heat gained and power loss calculation or something.

    I like the project, good thinking.
