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.

Freezer side is hot outside


There is no problem at all. The outside of the freezer is hot because it is rejecting heat from the inside of freezer compartment to the outside surroundings, this is a normal refrigeration cycle. As for the seals being hot, this may be to prevent the door from freezing shut. i know that commercial and industrial freezers have heated seals for this reason.

Outside of refrig/freezer hot


Heat exchangers for rejecting heat to air are built into the outside walls. This is normal. Just make sure you have enough clearance for free air circulation around it.

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.
