You know when you go against your gut feeling and you get burnt in search of a bargain? that's what this chest freezer is.

I bought it off gumtree as a super bargain... assured by the seller that it worked fine blah blah blah.

Anyways.

It's old, about 300 Litres, fits 5 cornys easily.

here's the deal - it chills stuff down to about 1 degree but won't go any lower.. which is fine for beer but not for freezing stuff - BUT it works really hard and flat out doing so - chewing lots of power in the process and who knows how long it will last...

So if you want to come and pick it up from Para Hills - it's yours for free (or a couple of your finest as a donation if you're feeling generous)

My thoughts are it would make a good party esky for the xmas new years season.

If you want to come and pick it up from Para Hills it's yours for free (a couple of your finest as a donation wouldn't be turned down!)
i'll give it a bit more of clean before collection.

PM if interested\

Pop the side motor cover off. Have a look at the compressor, there will be a fan next to it. Check the fan is working when the freezer is cooling.

I thought it would have been big enough to have one, and was hoping it was the issue. That one in the pic is broken and I've been going to fix it for a while. I've just been using the freezer as a vermin proof grain storage.

Maybe it doesn't have one then. Have a sniff around under there and see if there is anything like a car radiator, if it does give it a good clean.

If not, I'm out of ideas
