Question about Frigidaire 13.7 cu. ft. / 388 liter Upright Freezer AFFU1466D
We purchased a Kenmore model # 28042, 20.6 cubic foot upright freezer. We transported it to our home laying down in the back of our truck for about 45 minutes then let it rest upright for at least 12 hours before we plugged it in. With in minutes of plugging it in the exterior walls got extremely hot. We have it in a wood cabinet and are worried about fire. Is this normal for this model of freezer? Do we need to worry about a fire?
There should not be a fire hazard but you should be concerned that the freezer could break down if it is not allowed to vent the heat it produces. The freezer is not intended nor designed to be enclosed The manual must indicate specifications for minimum clearances for rear, top and sides, and may even be indicated on the big yellow sticker on the inside of the door. The clearances must be respected or again, the unit will fail, and the warranty may be voided in such cases.

Thank you for your post, friend!
I see you would like to know the cubic footage of your Frigidaire freezer. Based off the model number you have provided it appears that you have a 21 cubic foot freezer. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt
