Can I use my freezer in an unheated garage?


No. There are units designed to operate in a garage. These units are pretty expensive. The drastic change in temperature tricks the sensing components. You have a good chance of loosing your food product in the unit. As a former service technician, if the call was for a unit in a garage, we would contact the customer, explain the situation and cancel the call.

Is the freezer being outside causing motor problems


Hello Donna F - Typically freezers are not recommended to be located outside because if the garage temperature is above 100 degrees, it will have difficulties performing optimally due to un-circulating air. Some manufacturers have garage kit design to help with this issue. It is design to solely be used during the winter to provide heat to the coils which trigger the compressor to come on. During the summer months, generally it is not needed.

Freezer in unheated/unairconditioned garage it stays cold in winter time but it is not freezing when the temperature is hot in the garage


The first thing is to find out if there is a fan that runs next to the compressor. If not then in the summer the machine is overheating and passing the heat up to the machine itself thawing or preventing the freezer from operation properly

What is the coldest recommended temperature a chest freezer can withstand in an unheated garage?


Hi there

It should have no problems down to -30 deg C or -20f

But it may sweat on the outside if it is damp and cold, which can cause corrosion of the casing.

Below the above temperatures the thermostat will not operate

Whining sound from motor on Frigidaire upright freezer


Hi: It sounds like you bought a frost free freezer as it has a fan. The fan will come on to circulate the air. It will not necessarly run continuosly. The noise is most likely coming from the fan. I sold Frigidaire freezers for years and they are noisy compared to a refridgerator. If you think it is louder than it was when you bought it, I would replace the circulating fan. Also look at the back wall for frost as it could be a bad defrost heater blocking it with ice. Most likely just the fan though. Since it's in a detached garage,and you won't have to put up with the noise inside your house, it could run a while before failing. The fact it's getting cold is a very good sign.Also as you asked 2'nd, a freezer is ok in an unheated garage. Don't put a refrigerator in there. Unless It is a Whirlpoll Gladiator that is designed for such applications. Use www.searspartsdirect.com to find out where the fan is if you feel it is necessary to replace it. Its not a tough job if you are handy. Their shipping is expensive so you might want to buy it locally.
