Heat from fridge
Had the same problem. I used longer screws and placed 3 metal washers between the thermostat and the wall. It is a little hard to do. But place scotch tape around the washers so you can get the screws through the washers. This moves the thermostat housing away from the wall, prevents heat transfer.
You can use any thing for spacers, just so you can move the thermostat away from the wall.
That is three washers. on each screw.
