If this is a natural gas or propane operated freezer[which I doubt,its probably electric] simply turn off the gas valve leading to it ,then hack away

How do I put a 90 degree elbow on the outlet pipe for a DLG0452W. I want it to exit at the prepunched factory left side exit.

you can do it either by cutting down the pipe inside the dryer,stick an elbow on the inside and run your pipe off of the elbow or cut the pipe and attach flexable vent line to the pipe and run that out of the dryer,or if you want to keep the pipe in case you change the dryer around in the future,remove the pipe from the blower wheel housing,buy another piece of hard pipe,cut it down and install it where the other pipe was,stick an elbow on it and either run hard pipe or flex line,use either hose clamps or the silver high heat tape to connect pipe,don't use duct tape it drys out and falls apart.hope this helps,it's kind of basic,just cut the pipe there or use another piece of pipe,cut it so when you put the elbow on it it will line up with the hole in the side.

Electrolux chest freezer alarm keeps going off every five hours

Indicates not at correct temp, or frosting formation detection sensor has been activated. Check for ice forming on chill panel, if so may be low on gas, or may have defrost issues.
Chest freezers are a bit hard due to cased cores are not accessable and once issues start it impossible to rectify.
Hope that was of some limited help, sorry.

Hi, I have a 01 Blazer that the gas tank "pops" I have changed the gas cap with that not helping also the fuel gage goes back from full to empty what should I do?

hi this sounds like you might have a vent problem, on the tank there is a pipe/hose that lets the tank breath if this gets blocked it could cause suction in the tank itself , do you have problems sometimes when you put fuel into the tank, like the pump cuts off as if it were full? this is a good sign that the vent pipe/hose is clogged and needs to be removed and cleaned or replaced if the pipe is collapsed.....hope this helps

Whirlpool gas dryer LGR6636PWO heats for appro. 5 minutes & quits heating but still runs.

First check the exhaust vent and connecting vent material for a clog. If vent is OK,replace the gas valve coils.

Chest freezer - hose adaptor?

That would depend on the size of the freezer. If it's a compact 5-7 cubic feet, then its not necessarily needed, but if it is a large freezer I would recommend buying the hose adapter. The basic function for the hose adapter is draining the water after defrosting the freezer.

So if it's a large freezer that will not be moved, then YES by all means, you need the adapter.
