Question about Whirlpool 21.6 cu. ft. / 612 liter Chest Freezer EH220FXKQ

Old Whirlpool chest freezer where is temp setting?

I received an old 18.5 cu ft Whirlpool chest freezer. I've cleaned it up, and plugged it in, and I can hear it running fine, but the sticker on the inside says to start with the temperature setting at 3. I've looked around, but where do I set the temperature at? Do I have to take the panel off the end? I've put several bottles of water in it for now to see how long they take to freeze, but want to make sure I get it to it's optimum performance.

Thanks in advance.

Merry

Hello,I defrosted my electrolux chest freezer and now problem is power is on but not freezing,alarm light keeps coming and keeps bleeping every 2 minutes and goes off and on


Is the compressor running? if it is running, but there is no cooling, it is time to buy a new freezer.
If the compressor is NOT running, I would suspect the compressor start relay.
How did you defrost it?

I have a Kenmore 5 cu ft freezer that won't come on. I've checked the plug in and it works fine. Where would I start looking for the problem????


If, by plug in you mean the socket, then you need to check the fuse in the power plug next.
At the very lease there should be some light on the unit that illuminate even if it does not FREEZE.
If the compressor comes on wait to see if there is any drop in temperature. then it is possible the fuse was faulty.

see below links for more information on possible causes

Haier 5.3 Cu ft Chest freezer. power is on but compressor doesn't run. There is click sound but nothing happens after.


The click sound is the compressor starter relay closing but if nothing further happens it is likely that there has been a compressor failure

Sear chest freezer stop working model#2539139180


The compressor probably shut off on thermal overload. This protects the compressor from burning up. What has happened is that a capacitor or evaporator has gone bad or it could be low on freon. Have someone take a look at it. However, if it is older than 8-10 years old, consider replacing it. This could be the beginning of the end.

It looks like a bad ignition switch or capacitor. This is not that expensive. Probably not the compressor. Unfortunately, one small part stops the whole show.have a friend who is a tech look at it.

    How long should it take for a 18 cu ft. chest type deep freeze to get cold?


    From room temperature if just plugged in rule of thumb is 24hrs to properly reach temp. Place a glass half full of water in shelf when is frozen solid the unit should be plenty cold enough to keep food. It is always a good idea to get a small fridge thermometer to make sure of temp.

    I am just trying to find out what are the recommended settings for a 8.8 cu. ft. energy star rated Frigidaire chest freezer.


    I would suggest getting a fridge/freezer thermometer and use that to set the temperature. They are marked with the recommended temperatures. Also many times the setting on the nob in the freezer are not very consistent so it is better to actually set the temperature by turning the knob up or down to reach the desired temp on the thermometer
