Will putting hasp on chest freezer & fridge cause damage?

We wish to put a hasp and combo lock on our chest freezer and refrigerator. Will this damage the unit itself? Should we go about doing this another way? Thank you in advance for any assistance.

Check the damper in the top back of the fresh food section. make sure that it is open and air is coming through it.

SOURCE: My Beaumark Bottom Freezer Refrigerator Doesn't Work

problem is probably that the evaporator is frozen up preventing circulation of air and the fan is jammed with ice.
remove the back panel inside the freezer. melt off the ice with a hairdryer taking care not to heat up any stats mounted on the pipework.
appliance will now work but this is a temporary repair. you must find out the cause of the ice build-up ie why not defrosting.
for starters, check the defrost heater and the thermal cut-out inseries with it.
let me know how you get on and what you find. make sure the fan is free to rotate.

SOURCE: AEG Santo fridge not cooling but freezer is working.

The compressor is obviously still good or the freezer wouldn't work.I'm sure you checked the settings,but turn the freezer all the way up (hot)after it is cool so the unit doesn't come on for the freezer,then turn the refrigerator controls all the way down to the coolest setting.listen for the compressor to start,and/or the fans to run.If the compressor starts,and no fan there may be a problem with the fan.(this is a general test I'm not familiar with your specific unit which may not have a fan,but most newer units do).If the compressor doesn't start after a short time the thermostat/control for the refrigerator section is broken,and needs replaced.

SOURCE: Subzero 590: freezer works, refrigerator not cooling

This is a Sub Zero and many technicians do not realize that these units most all run on 2 separate systems. 2 cold controls 2 compressors 2 evaporators. They share a condenser and condenser fan motor. What you are describing is most likely a bad cold control. It is pretty common for these to get some age and go bad. If you are very savvy with repairs yourself then if you access the compressor area and feel that the compressor on the right is cool and the compressor on the left is warm then you know that the ref. compressor has not been running. UNPLUG THE UNIT OR CUT THE BREAKER OFF. Remove the shelving from the fresh food section and the cover to the lights and the panel below the lights and lean the back panel forward to access the cold control. You will see 3 wires to the cold control. The green wire is the ground wire of corse. Unplug the other 2 wires remembering their location on the control unit. Take a jumper wire and jump these 2 wires. If when you power the unit up the right side compressor comes on then you know that your fresh food cold control is bad. Replace fresh food cold control.

Kic fridge


everything is repairable but the question is for how much. To repair the need for welding electrodes, tools to repair, and of course you need gas and dryer / filter for gas. I think this is a job for a professional person because it requires knowledge of the handling of gas. Now if it will cost price may vary depends on many factors quantity amounts freon Gas and knowledge of the job. This can be done if you feel strong enough to do this but you need to see what it costs to repair and how much a new refrigerator sometimes does not pay. Sorry I wish I can help you

How can i attach a lock on my refrigerator


Here is an easy way. Buy a lock hasp from a local hardware store. Mount it to the right or left side, depending on which way it opens by holding it up so that the entire lock hasp covers the opening of the door seal width, but allows you enough room to drill the holes into your refrigerator sheet metal. If too small then buy a larger or if to big buy a smaller hasp. Use common sense and your best judgment. Once you have found one the correct size, you will need to mark the position of the holes that you will have to drill through the sheet metal. Once the holes are marked they will have to be drilled. You are going to permanently mount this hasp to the refrigerator with a pop rivet gun, so ensure you want to do this before you drill any holes. You will also want to buy a hasp that has holes no larger than 1/4" to make it a solid mount. Once you buy the pop rivets that fit through the holes in the hasp and are long enough to grab the sheet metal of the refrigerator, use the recommended drill bit size for the rivet. That info is on the rivet box. Once all holes are lined up and the door and hasp will allow you to put a small padlock on it use a pop rivet gun to permanently install the hasp to the side of your refrigerator. After it is installed, simply close the door and put your padlock on it and snap it shut to lock it. I learned how to do this, because sadly I lived with someone that had an eating disorder and the food had to be locked up. I pray you aren't going through the same thing, but this works!

More then likely you have a defrost problem.

How do i defrost?


You have to remove all the food to a good ice chest with no ice. Pack it as full as you can before starting another one. You may need to put some in your refrigerator freezer. It will stay frozen for several hours while you melt the ice in the chest freezer. You can direct a fan blowing into it to speed up the melting. If it doesn't have a drain to catch the water in a tub you'll have to soak the water up in a towel etc. Don't chip at the ice to break it up quicker. You can damage the refrigeration coils.

I have a Kenmore Elite Trio for about 3 years now. The first problem I have was - the freezer is fine but the fridge is warm. The cause was the fan on which it stop working after just a year and a half....


If your unit is like most french door w/freezer chests it has to be the fans again. There are two fans at the rear of the freezer chest one supplies circulation to the ice maker and refrigerator and the other supplies ciculation to the freezer section. These fans don't seem to be vary well made but are expensive to replace. I would replace them first. if that is not the problem then you would have to look at the compressor.

Lock on freezer door


Yes, you can put a lock. Visit your nearest locksmith shop and ask them. There are so many varieties of locks. The 4 1/2 keyed Hasp Lock Guard security can be used for this, it can be any other brand. It is a door security lock, the screws are small so nothing will hurt your freezer. Just ask a in a locksmith store. They will know which kind of lock to give you.
