Bought an upright Frigidaire Freezer on Craigslist and the inside gets cold and works like a champ but the outside side panels get very hot- is this normal or is there a short?


If there is a short circuit, the circuit breaker protection in your house wiring would trip (Open the electrical circuit path).

It is normal for the condenser, which is on the outside of the appliance to be hot because it is transfering the heat from inside the freezer cabinet to the ambient air outside the cabinet. Make sure that you give the appliance enough space all around the hot condenser so that it can transfer its heat to the surrounding air efficiently.

P.S. Some freezer designs integrate the condenser coils into the metal cabinet, thus the hot side panels.

The outside front of the freezer case gets hot.


It's normal to touch it hot on the outside front.
Because it has heater to keep moisture out in the body metal of the freezer.
Those moisture if not heated to dry, can cause rust build up.
Rust build up can destroy the metal body of the freezer.
Thanks for asking.

What are the instructions for defrosting my upright frigidaire freezer and restarting and replacing frozen foods?


well when i used to have to climb into super market freezers and defrost we used water from the tap it doesn't have to be hot so i would take freezer outside to do this as it might not be drained and if it does have a drain it would only take a minute amount of water which an element would heat up and burn off so empty freezer take outside wash out with water till all gone and to get rid of any smells was out with vanilla essence all fridgies i know and myself used this as it will clean out fridge smells, you then replace freezer back once all water has dried off especially electrical try not to get wet but if you can't help it, it won't matter just let dry or blow out with air compressor then replace freezer back to where come from run freezer for a while till temperature drops below zero then start to restock the more you put in it the longer it'll take to freeze, so just do little by little hopefully this has helped but its usually the only way to do this

I want to make a kegerator out of this. But does anyone know where the coils are in the unit.


Plug the freezer in a let it run.
After a short while you will see frost lines inside the freezer.
There will be corresponding hot areas outside the freezer if you feel along the outside of the freezer.
The frost lines and hot areas are your coil routing.
You would tap your holes between coils.

Freezer outside walls are very hot. Not maintaining temp


Hi, The walls are getting hot because that is where the condesor coils are. The condensor coils are where the heat is disperst that is trap as the coolant pumps through the evaporator coils inside. The fact that it is holding 0 degrees is a good sign. Is this freezer in a garage?
Check the door seals to make sure no heat is getting into the freezer other then when the door is opened.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Plugged in chest freezer is cooling inside but hot to touch on the outside


yup, if you make cold theres gonna be heat. they run the lines through the case for cooling. it will get usually warm so maybe cause it's running alot to get cool initially. then it should normalize. if after a day it's still pretty hot, then it may be an old freezer and the compressor may be wearing out slowly, pumping slower and causing more heat.

Outside surfaces of freezer very hot to touch


it should be warm to the touch but not so hot you cant. and also depending on how long the freezer is running and how warm it is where the freezer is will effect how hot the outside is. the reason the outside of the freezer is hot is because thats how the freezer releses its heat from the refrigerant. the longer it runs or the harder it has to work the more heat it has to hive off. so unless the freezer is not cooling there is nothing to worry about.
