My experience they are kind of a poop shoot. You can get one from one brand that'll last 10yrs and the next one on the line is a junker. I started just buying from stores and shelling out for the 3yr replacement warranty. It's a pain when they go out regardless. I have one that didn't kick back on and I'm still trying to find the time to dig a hole for its contents in the back 40.

Yup I have checked one is like you stated the other not. So I know which one to try this with. I won't touch a thing until I get a decent used chest freezer however.

I have two large uprights. Both Montgomery Wards. The oldest was bought in 1974, the other 1983. I have an International Harvester brand refrigerator in my garage that Iíll fire up to cool deer quarters. It dates back to the 1950ís, still works fine.

The 20 cu footer in our basement for our food was bought new in 1975.

Kind of stupid. I have 2 chest freezers along the wall in garage. I went to plug the other one in and outlet was loose,sparks. I plug in the other one that quit and it fired up and quit. I thought what are the chances both freezers just quit. Loose outlet,wires etc. So I put in a new outlet and good to go. Likely saved myself a fire anyway and 2 new freezers.
