Yes but always keep the door slightly open to prevent mould and smells from building up whilst not is use.

When i moved my kic chest freezer model kc0021-Aa, I heard an light explosive sound and now the freezer does not go on.


The following is the GE moving instructions. If you have started before the 24 hour rest period and the unit had been rotated from vertical have the compressor inspected.

FREEZER MOVING INSTRUCTIONS Please use the following steps when relocating an upright or chest freezer:
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the wall receptacle.
  2. Remove the food, defrost, and clean the freezer.
  3. Use blankets to protect the freezer finish from scratches.
  4. Place the freezer on its side for moving only if you have no other choice.
  5. When transporting a freezer, keep it in an upright position. If transporting it in an upright position is not possible, lay it down on the compressor side of the unit. Be careful to secure the door to prevent it from opening.
  6. If it has been transported on its side, set it right side up in its final location and allow the freezer to sit for the same amount of time that it was on its side (24 hrs max.). Do not plug the unit into the electrical receptacle without allowing this settling time. The unit can be damaged if it is plugged in prematurely.

If the unit was transported in an upright position there is no waiting time required.


Hope this helps?

Tip

Extra life for your remote/ hand held devices.


Most of the remote control faults are due to failure/ leakage of battery in the deivce. It is important that the cells taht you install must be checked in a time period so that you could find out before the electrolitics leak and damage them. for his keep a date tab on the reverse side as a reminder, replacing them maybe in a period of three months. however if you are keeping away many such due to low use, please try to take off the batteries and let them idle. If however you ahve encountered such an issue, immediately open the remote, use a good cleaner to wash off, dry the PCB using a good hair dryer , then assemly them after cleaning and oiling the contacts from rust accumulation.
You must do this remedial prevention for devices that hold a battery but kept without any use.
Hope this tip is usefull. Good day.

What temperature should the freezer be set at?


Deep freezers are typically supposed to be at 0 Degrees (F) or slightly below, which allows food to be kept frozen for long periods of time.

Check the condenser grille is clear and clean, and all fans are working. Get a cheap thermometer to keep in the freezer and check it from time to time.

I cleaned out my fridge completely today. Took all the shelves out, cleaned the interior, all the glass over a three hour period. The freezer is working just fine, the fresh food area is nice and dry but...


Manufacturers suggest that it takes approximately 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize in both your freezer and fresh food compartments after being turned off for an extended period of time. Adjust temperature settings to the "half-way" mark for both freezer and fresh food compartments. Allow a period overnight and recheck the temperatures. Also check the condenser coil (usually located underneath the appliance). If clogged with dirt/lint, it needs to be cleaned (carefully) with a condenser coil brush (can be purchased at Home Depot or Lowe's). Prior to cleaning condenser coil, turn off appliance (there is a condenser fan motor and blade operating while on). Be careful not to damage copper tubing (refrigerant in tubing)!

My wife and I bought a Kenmore chest freezer (14.8 cubic foot) about 6 weeks ago. It is made by Frigidaire for Sears, and the model number is #253.165.42105, serial # WB94341279. It has been working OK. ...


This is well with in factory specifications. Hot air rises and cold air drops. Because a chest freezer does not have a fan to circulate the air it is normal for the basket to be warmer than the bottom of the freezer. The bottom of the freezer is used for food you want to keep for a longer period of time.What you store in the basket is food you will freeze for a short period of time. Ice cream should not be kept in the basket. As you fill your freezer with food you will find that the temperature will equal out because the frozen food will take up the place of the frozen air which will give you a more stable freezer temperature.
Try your test when you have it full of food.

Two sections of my fishing pole have become stuck together , how do i get them to come apart without breaking them ?


That is a tough question and I can't make any guarantees, but I will tell you what worked for me once, if you promise not to laugh. I put the sections in a freezer for short periods of time and kept going and trying to pull the sections apart every little while. The cooling caused contraction and I was eventually able to get the sections apart. I told you not to laugh. Best wishes.

Freezer problem


if you don't hear it running for extended periods of time (more than 15 minutes) without stopping, and if it does not immediately re-start once it does stop, and if it is extremely hot climate outside (85 F and above), then yes, this is acceptable.
