Question about Kenmore 14.8 cu. ft. / 419 liter Chest Freezer 13541
I was given a Kenmore chest freezer, it appeared to be functioning properly and was still frozen inside when I took ownership of it. That was a week ago. Today I loaded it with several items, and went out to add another item. The sides and front of the freezer are almost too hot to touch! I can't tell if it is as cold inside as it should be. It's a very basic model with a dial on the side that goes from 1-7 for coldness.
It should be warm to the touch but not so hot you cant. and also depending on how long the freezer is running and how warm it is where the freezer is will effect how hot the outside is. the reason the outside of the freezer is hot is because thats how the freezer releses its heat from the refrigerant. the longer it runs or the harder it has to work the more heat it has to hive off. so unless the freezer is not cooling there is nothing to worry about.

I just opened my deep freezer and heard the sound of running water. The outside is hot to touch. I'm theorizing that the last time it was opened it was not closed well, which is the cause of the hot outside and defrosting food. Could this be the case?
