The best way to get the stat from drawing heat from that area,(which is really stupid of FR) is to seal the whole with spray form where the wires comes through. Granted you are picking heat up from the refer but it is causing the higher temp all the time. If you blow air in that area it will throw the stat off more. A digital stat would not help, unless you got one with a remote sensor and wired it in. Honeywell makes one but it's pricey. When I was in HVAC we had false reading all the time due to the whole the wires came through. I would try that first. The temp of the wall should not make that much of a difference. I just keep shaking my head at what these engineers come up with. Also your 3 to 4 degrees is a little. I think the tolerance is 1 to 3 degrees.
