Question about Freezers

1 Answer

We were given a fairly new chest freezer (a smaller-med size) however it has some rust damage on the corners and expecially on the bottom. Can I paint over this? What should I use? Thanks!

    I wanted to clarify that the rust and damage is INSIDE the freezer. Is it still ok to paint?

Go to the hardware store and get some rust removing jelly. Sand the area with emery cloth and then prime the area and paint it with an appliance spray paint that matches your color

Rusting liner of a chest freezer.


Hello nnwaldron - Try the following suggestions below; if it prove to be ineffective then the liner will need replacing.

1) Dip a moist, soft toothbrush in a box of baking soda. Very gently, in the direction of the stainless grain, rub back and forth on the appliance. The mild abrasive action will get into the grain without damaging it. You can use your finger (instead of a toothbrush) for even better results.

2) Rinse the baking soda off with a warm, damp (not wet) paper towel. Dry thoroughly. You may see or smell rust on the paper towel or toothbrush. That means it is working!

3) Finally, dry the appliance thoroughly. You don't want to leave any water that could cause more rust.

Kelvinator Chest Freezer will not cool after spray painting rust spot.


Dear Landport2
Welcome to the site,

You said, you have a Kelvinator chest freezer, model number CFS101SM1W. This freezer is in excellent condition and was working ok. I notice that there was a rust spot on the bottom area so I decided to spray paint the entire inside with the appropriate appliance spray paint. After spray painting the freezer will not cool.

How old was your freezer?
This must be an ancient freezer!

And Unfortunately I was not able to tell you to leave it alone and not to turn it off!
You did not cause this!
Unfortunately it was so old that it probably was already on it's last legs.

Here is an interesting report I just read!

Repair or replace your appliances?

When to pull the plug on your old freezer

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model ?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your ,freezer
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.


If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that freezer under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.


If your freezer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.


The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new freezer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive freezer
six or more years old .

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a freezer you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

Thank You, HUUUM
