No epoxy is not enough
you need to insulate the floor use sheet unsulation it comes in 4x8 and then sheet over it with ply wood like a 5/8 ply seal arround the edges with a good indoor our door silicone then use epoxy th seal the ply
by simply sealing the floor you will get loss and make your pump work 3-4 times as hard using 3-4 times the hydro witch means more money over the long haul
spend some time and cash now or spend a lot of cash later.

Which line is the low side on my chest freezer ?

Ok, basic refrigeration here. The 'high side' contains the high pressure vapor leaving the compressor and going to the condensor to condense into a high pressure liquid. The 'low side' contains low pressure refrigerant vapor within the evaporator and the suction line back to the compressor. The same amount of vapor has to return to the compressor as left the compressor. So thinking about pressure solves the problem....High pressure equals small line...
Low pressure equals larger line. The low pressure vapor will fill a larger space than high pressure vapor so it has to travel in a larger line. The suction side is the bigger of the two and if the unit is functioning, it will be the one cooler to the touch.

Though this is basically correct in theory, it is not a totally perfect way to descsribe an answer to your question, but it was fun to try.

Why is my Electrolux freezer outside walls hot

The condensing coils are embedded in the walls of the freezer. The freezer uses the wall as a heat sink. This allows the freezer to dissipate the heat that has been pulled from inside the freezer to the area outside of the freezer.

Vapor coming from bottom of inside freezer and water to dispenser frozen

The most common cause of this is a dirty condenser coil. Find the condenser coil for the unit , it will be under the freezer, in the back or ,in some models, on top. It will have a fan behind it. Shut of the unit and clean it. First with a paint brush to remove heavy dirt, then with a spray coil cleaner--this may get dirty, so be prepared with a mop. Clean it thoroughly without getting electrical components wet. (If you get anything electrical wet, make sure you allow ample time to dry before energizing it).

Is it normal for chest freezer to cooling but the wall and compressor are hot

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Yes most freezers dont have a condenser or condenser fan so they disperse the heat through the walls of the cabinet.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Why would the top and sides of small chest freezer be warm tot he touch

Some freezers have the refrigeration condenser coils located in the walls of the freezer as opposed to a dedicated coil and fan. This is why you should never drill into a freezer or cooler cabinet to install hinges or make holes for draught equipment.
In order for the door opening to not freeze around the gasket, freezers have a low wattage electrical heater installed and this is probably the heat your feeling on the door.
Hope this answers your question

start simple. be sure that the condenser coil is clean. you should be able to see all the way thru the fins. verify that the evap fans and the condenser fans run. make sure nothing blocks air flow inside the conditioned space and around the condenser coil and compressor.
Let me know if we need to go further.

Refrigerator works but freezer does not freeze.The compressor works and I've cleaned the entire works area of dust.

There is two kind of condenser: one called condenser with forced air flow and condenser with natural air flow!!!
Your freezer have the condenser with natural air flow. . One mistake which people do is that they don't really know how to install the refrigerator or freezers. What distance to the wall which they can respect. This distance is what we call the ventillation distance which allow the natural air or forced air to flow and cool down the compressor and the condenser.
That mean , remove immediately your freezer to 1 foot from the wall. unplug 15 mins and plug again it will work very good.

My walk-in's ceiling panel is dripping

The coil in the conditioned space is called the evaporator.
If the water droplets are forming on the ceiling around the evap, it is due, most likely, to the defrost cycle being too long.
Defrost cycle: compressor stops, evap fans stop, electric heaters in the evap come on to clear any ice/ frost on evap fins/ coil.
The ice/ frost melts and some of it turns into vapor. As it hits the cold ceiling surface, it condensates into water droplets. Defrost cycle could be too long. Usually 4 time aday and no longer than 30 minutes should be enough unless there is high humidity.
There could be another cause.
Normally, after a defrost cycle terminates, the evap fans do not come on, due to a delay control. This prevents circulating warm are due to the heaters. The compressor comes on and cools the evap down to, usually 20 degrees or so, and then the fans come on. What could be happening is, the fans are coming on too early and blowing the water driplet off the evap and onto the back wall of the unit.
A third item, is to be sure that the condensate drain is "P" trapped. The prevents warm, outside air from being drawn in and causing exess frost build up, thus excess water and vapor.

Good luck and hope this helps

How do turn the temp up on a norlake walkin?

They are usually mounted on the front panel of the evaporator or mounted on the wall behind the evaporator.There is a possibility that the temp. control is at the condenser,and the sensing bulb was slipped thru the wall.Look for the bulb at the back of the evaporator and follow the cap tube.
