Finally getting back into it. When I built my first one I had analog controls. This have digital and will go from 40-64*. My little coolmist humidifier should work well. I have the Govee in there now. Set temp for my project is at 55*.

Racks all washed and everything cleaned with this.

All dry and plugged in. Inside does have a blue LED light that can be on or off.
Sealed compressor cooling. Double pane glass door.

This will be for just small batches of salumi and charcuterie.

What are the technicals on the fridge? The fridge I had gave out a couple years ago, looking for a reasonable way back in. I assume this is a wine fridge? Will you run a dehumidifier?

Going to use a small coolmist humidifier, need the humidity in there around 85%

will take a pic of the specs for you.

Instructions dont say nothing about it. This unit the the wine cellar and it does have a drain in back. So I think it will dehumidifiy
 
Good to see you back in action! Govee will not lie...it will give you truer readings than the controller. As far as dehumidifying, if de-humidification only happens when the compressor is running, then it will depend on how far the overshoot is to the upside and for how long.
 
Cool. My wine fridge has been working out quite well. I had to calm myself over the humidity swings. The other day at work I decided to check on the govee and saw some very out of character readings. Turns out my eva-dry dehumidifier was full and in need of emptying, relying only on the fridge for DH. I'll snap a screenshot...
