Question about GE 7 cu. ft. Chest Freezer FCM7DR

1 Answer

I just dropped a frozen turkey to the bottom of my chest freezer and it made a puncture in the metalic lining. The size is about the size of a quarter or less, and I can see the insulation under it. 1. WIll this effect the function of my freezer? 2. What do I need to worry about? 3. Can I put metalic type tape over it to patch it? I did call GE and was told this should not effect it, but I may need to worry about moister, how can I avoid that without a repairman? Thanks - Jason Steele

Good day,
Your idea was a good one, and it should not be neglected. The area your going to tape should be warm and dry. Best long term repair, would be to cut a small piece of aluminum, and epoxy it in place. The machine will need to be warm long enough for the epoxy to set, however, it should be a permanent repair.

My freezer keeps already frozen food frozen but wont freeze fresh food


You need to put it at the top of the freezer in an upright freezer which is usually where the circulation fan is. With chest freezers you put them in the bottom. You may be able to make the freezer colder by turning the thermostat dial to a higher number. The higher the number the colder the compartment will be.


Get yourself a cheep fridge and freezer thermometer from Walmart. They have a green section where the red line should be. The freezer should be minus 18'C or 0'F.

I have a Kelvinator upright freezer model k330uf the bottom section does not work


Sounds like its got blockage.
There is a channel that allows cold air to "fall" into the bottom chamber. There is also a return. Typically the "fall" chamber is choked with either something that fell in and was trapped, frozen solid with ice or algie has grown and closed the hole.
The best thing to do is empty it completely and inspect the drop channel.
Put all your frozen goods in ice chests to keep them from thawing out.
Good Luck.

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.

Why would my Chest freezer be flooding my basement while it is still frozen inside


freezers still make condensation like air conditioners. they have a drain line heater to keep the condensate liquid until it exits the freezer. then it goes into a drain pain that usually has the high (hot) side line running through it to evaporate the water and at the same time increase efficiency. you probably have a rusted out drain pan which you can replace. you can make one from sheet metal and just seal the corners with RTV silicone, be careful sheet metal WILL cut you badly, so wear gloves whenever handling that stuff.

Chest freezer not freezing on bottom


Sounds like a circulation problem. Does it have a fan inside the freezer. Should be bdhind the floor or one of the wall panels. There should be a vent for the air to circulat through. If so check to make sure it's running when the compressor runs.
