Changing A Chest Freezer to A Refridgerator

Hope someone will know this, I desperately need to change a small chest freezer that is set to freeze -15 degrees to use as a refridgerator at about 40 degrees. Can I recalibrate thermostat? Change thermostat? Is there a way this can be accomplished?
Thanks for ideas or advice....

You would probably need to change the thermostat to a different temperature range.

Yes, it will work. I've not _personally_ done it yet. Been waiting to get my hands on an old chest freezer for quite some time now. Note that it may be slightly easier though to go with an external thermostat. Here are some examples, made for beer kegs but same thing:
