JAKlassen gave the best advice. It could be a faulty gfci, or you are leaking current from the temp controller. You can not replace the gfci with a standard outlet. For less than $13 you can replace the gfci and if it still trips, the you would need to look at the controller or fridge.

I would first take it OFF the gfi. How many places is the gfi protecting downstream? Is this wired up to protect a single or multiple locations ??

from what i know, there are only 2 outlets in the garage.. and both trip when i plug it in with the temp controller..

I was under the impression all garage outlets are supposed to be GFCI?
