Question and Answers


Our old Coldspot chest-type freezer gets hot on front exterior. Does that point to problems with the defroster unit? Can I disable that feature ?

The problem you describe could be caused by the defrost system on the freezer. I think repairing the problem will cost more than the freezer is worth. It is hard to part with an appliance after so many years, but I suspect having the freezer picked up and disposed of safely is the best option for you.

Disabling the controls for the defrost feature would probably not solve the problem. I suspect the valve that causes the freezer to defrost has failed and is leaking the hot gas through.
