The basic principle on which a "Freezer" works would dictate that the answer to your question is "Yes", it would still "Freeze". It's what it's designed to do, as opposed to a refrigerator, which works on a different principle.

I keep min two notches from the coldest setting.A great way to check where you should set yous,is ice cream.Put an open container of ice cream in the freezer,and turn the freezer to coldest.The next day try to scoop the ice cream.If the ice cream is hard the freezer is too cold.Adjust the freezer two notches ,and try the ice cream the next day.Repeat till you are happy with the hardness of the ice cream.It should be easy to scoop but not too soft.

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer2_bing.gif and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Safety is not an issue, the problem you may have, depending on the surge protector, is that when the compressor starts up the amps drawn from the circuit is very high which could cause the surge protector to trip, then the power would be shut off to the refrigerator,NOT A GOOD THING!
Good luck !

i know where your going and its a good thought
read your compressor, it will label the start up amp,
it may even be on the model label
it will give you the rated amps and the start up amps
this is current draw to run
as well as start up a stopped motor
depending on the age
most units use about
short of that use a 3x method
if it has the run amp x3 is startup
then read your surge protector if its rated higher than the amps needed to start the unit
then you should be fine
i will say most SP are rated at 15amps
my freezer is rated at 18amperes

if the compressor is warm that is an indication to me that it is running or at least trying to run. if its running you should feel it vibrating as well as being warm. assuming the compressor is running and it's not cooling I would say you probably have a refrigerant leak and would come out cheaper to replace the unit. repalceing the compressor also is fairly expensive in exess of 300-400 dollars. Let me know if you have any other questions Peyton

chest freezer operation is among the simplest available. if the compressor is running and its not cooling there are only 2 possibilities. low or no refrigerant and or a bad compressor. so if you have the ability to return the unit I would. could luck peyton
