I converted a freezer to a refrigerator which has a very low energy
consumption.

Not hard to do, was it.

I would like to convert my refrigerator to a freezer.
I guess the main problem would be to increase the insulation on the
fridge side.

Correct.  I actually have a problem with our refrigerator freezing
juice, milk and eggs.  A little extra insulation should make it good
enough for ice cream.  Be sure to clean off those outside fins or
coils, as otherwise it can't transfer heat.

The problem actually is that fridges and freezers have different
refrigerant gases in them.  Different "boiling points".  Ergo, unless
you change the gas in the sytem it will never work well.  Hardly seem
s worth it.
