Old Upright Kenmore Freezer Help , please

I've just inherited an old 7. cu ft Kenmore Freezer. It must be about 20 years old and I haven't plugged it in yet. The door squeaks and yowls like a horror movie! I tried WD40 and Pam but so far no luck. It has one movable shelf and two that have the coils running through. Can I place food on the coiled shelves?
If it starts OK, what are the warning signs pointing toward imminent death?
As it's a freebie I want to give it a chance. Any particular tips to keep it happy?
The first model numbers are C675 then a string of long numbers

If it is a shelve it is made for storage. A sign of imminent death on these old freezers would be its ability NOT to reach a low enough temperature when running. The older systems had heavier metals in the construction including the cooling systems. Some tips on keeping it happy would be to operate it in a place where you would be comfortable to sit for an extended period of time.

12 year old freezer won't get above +20. Could it be the temp control dial?


I think you meen below 20 . Its mostlikely low on freon. if only half or less of the evap coil has frost , you low on freon. Then you have a leak in the system.

Only one half of my chest type freezer freezes? It is old. Bought at least 18 years ago. Help!


My recommendation is to get rid of this 18 year old freezer as it is costing u a fortune to keep it plugged in. Then ask yourself if you really need an additional freezer at all?? If you do, consider purchasing a new small one that is really energy efficient. You will be way money ahead I assure u.

Freezer Not Working


The most likely answer is a slow freon leak assuming it was getting to the right temperature before you went on vacation.

Freezer stopped working


A no power to the compressor is a good sign as far as being repairable is concerned. Locate the temperature control. Unplug the freezer and jumper the two main wires that connect to the control. Plug it in and if the unit runs replace the thermostat.
