Question about Kenmore 14.8 cu. ft. / 419 liter Chest Freezer 13541
I've been using a chest freezer as a frig running it with a Johnson Controls external thermostat. It's been working great staying at a constant 35-40 degrees fahrenheit. The past month it's started to warm up inside. The motor is running, I hear fluid in the walls of the unit. The top section started to get frosty while the rest of the unit would remain fairly warm. This unit has a flash defrost that I initiated. The front internal walls of the unit got very hot while the back was only moderately warm. I unplugged it and let it sit overnight. I plugged it in the morning and let it run all day. The unit was only moderately cool after 10 hours. The thermostat is set on 7 (max). I've adjusted it off and max several times. I hear the unit running the whole time. When I adjust it to 7 after turning it off I hear something else energize for a few seconds and then shut off.
This happened once.
Any assistance with this is greatly appreciated. My kegs are getting warm.

Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.

SOURCE: Chest freezer - hose adaptor?
That would depend on the size of the freezer. If it's a compact 5-7 cubic feet, then its not necessarily needed, but if it is a large freezer I would recommend buying the hose adapter. The basic function for the hose adapter is draining the water after defrosting the freezer.
So if it's a large freezer that will not be moved, then YES by all means, you need the adapter.

youyr best bet would be to build a frame that the casters are welded to and there are no holes in the outer shell of the freezer. some L shaped angle would work nicely for this application and then there would be plenty of support for when the freezer is loaded up with product. Be sure that teo of the casters are lockable and two in the swivel freely.
