Question about Freezers

1 Answer

I have a Haier chest freezer model HCF208A that is always wet on the bottom. I have it well clear of all walls and a nearby washing machine but it drips so much that the timber flooring is in danger of rotting. I have lifted it up on wooden blocks so that there is 80mm clearance under, and have placed a large collection tray underneath, but that can overflow. It is at a holiday home so visits are sparodic. It is not frosting internally and is not more than 1/3rd full. If it wasn't on an island that makes tech visit difficult I would have had it pro fixed. Any ideas anyone? Its otherwise a very good freezer. ta, Mark

Great question.
Before i can access the issue I need to ask if you have a humidity gauge in your home?
You need to check the overall moisture content in your home. Because Freezers and refrigerators create a lot of heat and have to condensate moisture they will have some water that should be evaporated by the pan under or on top of the compressor.
However, if you home has a high humidity, which may not be noticed by yourself, Freezers will condensate a large mount of water. If the freezer is in the basement or near another warm source like a furnace, hot water heater or washing machine it may make more moisture.
So check the humidity levels around your freezer for at least one week. Check it in the morning and afternoon after work lets say.
The humidity should be between 30-50%. If it is higher than this I would suggest a dehumidifier. High humidity in a house can cause wood damage , mold and other issues like excessive moisture on a freezer or older fridges.
If you find that the humidity levels are within range I might suggest that you use a small fan to circulate air around the area the freezer is in. The only other option is to replace the freezer with a new model the reduces exterior moisture.
I hope that his helps you in getting this issue resolved!

SOURCE: Can I Mount Casters with Screws into Bottom of Chest Freezer?

youyr best bet would be to build a frame that the casters are welded to and there are no holes in the outer shell of the freezer. some L shaped angle would work nicely for this application and then there would be plenty of support for when the freezer is loaded up with product. Be sure that teo of the casters are lockable and two in the swivel freely.

SOURCE: frozen water on the bottom of my Amana freezer

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.

After placing my Haier 7 cu. ft. / 198 liter Chest Freezer HCM070LA in a horizontal or tilted position it doesn't want to freeze


If you have run it in a tilted position, the oil has migrated from the compressor to the evaporator. You need a technician to flush the oil back to the compressor. Only run equipment like this on a flat level surface. and always allow to stand a few hours after moving before switching on.

Why can't a Haier chest freezer be put in garage?


The only problem that you might have is with the coils and the flux capacitor. If you clean the coils, it should be fine.

Lost manual and need to defrost


This is likely a manual defrost freezer, which means you have to remove the food, unplug the unit, and let the ice melt on its own. Do not, and i repeat, DO NOT poke the ice away from the walls. I guarantee if you poke the ice away from the wall, you'll poke a hole in the wall, and force yourself to buy a new freezer.

SLOWER IS SAFER. put some boiling water, in the pot, inside the freezer, or use a hair dryer.
