The wattage use of the unit should be on a label plate or sticker. With the age of the unit though, it may not be legible anymore. A dryer does use a lot of electricity. Check the freezer to see if the compressor cycles off. If you keep the door shut, it should. If the compressor stays on continuously, that could use a lot of power.

### Specs for arctic king chest freezer model w8s-185c1ws how many watts does it use

Specs don't appear to be available. Freezers are usually rated in amps. To find the watts, multiply the amps by the voltage. Would also depend on the cubic feet of the freezer as the bigger the freezer, the more amps the compressor draws.

Only thing I could find is its energy star rating.

### Was offered a new energy efficient freezer 16.7 cu foot standing frost free by Fridgidaire ( energy efficiency rating 65). My 13 yr old Kenmore: Model : 253.9287215 Freezer works fine. Is it rated the...

I was not able to find any info quickly on your older Kenmore in my literature but its a sure bet that it was not as efficient as the new one. You can do a calculation or look at the plate (usually on the back) that states the amperage draw on each model- the higher one is the less efficient. As for cuft you need to do the math and measure the inside storage area in inches wide, inches deep and inches tall. Multiply the width X depth X height then divide by 144 (the cu inches in a cubic ft) this will give you the actual size of the Kenmore for comparison. Hope this helps... also you may want to check with your local electric utility company as many are offering a rebate to replace 10 yr old fridge. freezers and usually pick up for free.

Yes it does. It will have to be blowing inside so look in there. You will have to take the cover off.
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed
and PLEASE give a Thumbs Up for the effort. The Raz Shack

### GE 5CF CHEST FREEZER

I got delivery today for the same freezer and had the same question.
I just called GE's customer service number (800-626-2005) and the agent told me that GE uses this button panel (which has the green on/off light switch, the two white switches, and the round control dial) for all or most of its freezers. But the buttons do not do anything on the 5 cubic foot chest freezer. They are not connected to anything and are non-active buttons. On other freezer models above this one, the two switches serve a purpose, but not the 5CF model. This is a simple, inexpensive freezer and it doesn't have bells and whistles--but it does have the same control panel as the multi-feature freezers. Hope that helps.
