Gibson Chest Freezer leaking water from bottom

We bought the freezer used and have had it for about three years. The freezer is running and the food is still frozen, but what little bit of frost that is on the inside walls is defrosting. There is no water inside the freezer.

do you have voltage at the compressor? if not you have an open circuit or bad t-stat. if voltage is present and compressor is not running you have a bad start device or bad compessor. if voltage present and compressor runs you have a refrigeration issue get a new freezer.

SOURCE: My freezer's defrost systems runs constantly

i dont think so i would look at the compressor kicking out on thermal overload or a faulty thermostat thermostats have two settings cut in cut out your cut in could be bad and not turning the compressor on till the temp reaches melting temps now if your hearing a click buzz then you need to look at the compressor and make sure the compressor fan is running but its not a defrost promblem

Not much you can do except ensure you have a tight seal and not to open it more than you have to.

Your drain line is clogged. Take a small diameter pice of wire and snake out the drain line from inside the freezer.
You may have to access the back rear near the compressor and separate the drain line there and clean it further.

Just bought Belling Chest Freezer Model BCM31 as old one was thick with ice, but new one is frosting up very quickly as well above food line. Is this normal? Setting is right in the middle.


open the lid and using a spirit level check that the unit is flat and that its not "twisted" then using an a4 piece of paper check that the lid sits flat all round with no air leaks (the most common cause of chest freezers frosting up)if you have one, a freezer thermometer is a good investment, as you can set the unit to run at -18C,the optimum temp,,,

I have a freezer that ices up about 12inches from the bottom model#HCMO5OEC and will not freeze the food


Hi,
your freezer has a freon leak and the leak would need to be found, fixed and recharged for it to work again...
this would cost more then a new freezer...

Just got a used 5.0 frigidaire chest freezer and noticed that it is starting to frost at the top but water is starting to pool at the bottom. any help would be appreciated


Good day,
The interior walls should frost evenly. If you only get a partial frosting pattern then either you have a refrigerant leak or a restriction in the refrigerant lines.
Either problem would be considered a terminal failure in a chest freezer.

Unit runs continually with gurgling sounds


defrost fully once a year or more if you notice it frosting up.it should run at minus 18c to 20 c for best results. 0f is fine.gurgling noise is normal (liquid turning to gas before compressor turns it back to liquid).make sure door seals all round and the kids close the door asap after use......also if you portion up food prior to freezing and vacpack it it will last longer.and be easier to store/rotate.

My wife and I bought a Kenmore chest freezer (14.8 cubic foot) about 6 weeks ago. It is made by Frigidaire for Sears, and the model number is #253.165.42105, serial # WB94341279. It has been working OK. ...


This is well with in factory specifications. Hot air rises and cold air drops. Because a chest freezer does not have a fan to circulate the air it is normal for the basket to be warmer than the bottom of the freezer. The bottom of the freezer is used for food you want to keep for a longer period of time.What you store in the basket is food you will freeze for a short period of time. Ice cream should not be kept in the basket. As you fill your freezer with food you will find that the temperature will equal out because the frozen food will take up the place of the frozen air which will give you a more stable freezer temperature.
Try your test when you have it full of food.

Kenmore chest freezer about three or four years old.not cooling


Probably a freon lean and not worth repairing. You can never find the leak in a chest freezer. Recharging will buy a little time but you can never reallly trust it again.
