Lock on freezer door

I just purchased this freezer and would like to put some sort of locking devise on the lid. Do you have any suggestions. My thought was to use a pad lock hinge and screw it with sheet metal screws to the lid and side of the freezer. I wanted to see if this would be ok or would there be a chance that a screw could go into a coolant coil.
Thanks for you help.

Yes, you can put a lock. Visit your nearest locksmith shop and ask them. There are so many varieties of locks. The 4 1/2 keyed Hasp Lock Guard security can be used for this, it can be any other brand. It is a door security lock, the screws are small so nothing will hurt your freezer. Just ask a in a locksmith store. They will know which kind of lock to give you.

Deplay light and inside light off,door ajar and compressor running

I appreciate your inquiry, stephen couch!

From the information you have provided the lights on and inside of your freezer are off and your compressor is running. This sounds like a possible short within your control panel or wiring issue. I see you have performed a reset on your freezer by unplugging it and plugging it back in. Typically, to perform a factory reset we would suggest unplugging your freezer for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help I would suggest having a professional come out and perform an accurate diagnosis. This will help avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Best of luck! -Matt

Lock on upright freezer won't unlock

Could be frozen. Use a hair dryer on the lock assembly and the edge of the lock. After it's hot, push the freezer door in and try the lock then.

We locked the freezer with the key, now we are unable to unlock the freezer. the lock seems to not be turning or may be jammed.

The obvious things are often the last to be checked! Are you sure you have the correct key? Scrape some lead from a pencil, onto paper and fold the paper so that you can blow the lead dust into the lock, work the key in and out a few times, this will lubricate the tumblers in side. Then press down hard on the lid to release pressure on the lock and try again.
