Free Chest Freezer - Not Working

Recommended Posts

Details: Whirlpool 9.0 cubic foot chest freezer. (Model EGH-090F)

Dimensions: 37"L x 35"H x 28"W

Age: Probably close to 20 years old.

Problem: Runs but does not get cold.

My intent is not for this to be another "box fan" post (although that one is entertaining). I just figured someone could maybe fix it or convert it into a bait or fish tank. Let me know if you're interested. I live in Forest Lake and work in Roseville but would be willing to meet some where if it worked out. I also head north frequently up the 35 corridor. Thanks - FL Sniper

These make great bait tanks!

I am sure it will be gone very soon.

I just shook my head when I read the title of this post.

Why?

You would be surprised how many people use these old non working freezers.

One mans junk.......

I wanted it so I could make a smoker out of it; but then I realized that it was too far of a drive when I can just use my neighbors when I need it.

Should I change the title? You think that would help? I've seen some small baitstores and resorts use old freezer for bait tanks so I thought maybe someone could use it. I'd just like to get rid of it...and figured maybe I could help someone out and save myself some $ by having to take it to the dump. Can't blame a guy for trying eh? (I do understand what you mean about it being like the box fan post...lol)

If I had the space for it I would probably take it. Using them for bait tanks is a really good idea. My uncle has one set up like that down in Arkansas.

Just made me chuckle. I keep coming back to see if the "20 box fan" posts have started coming in yet. Just giving you a little good natured grief.

The "boxfan" is still one of the best alltime threads...

Maybe if you fixed the boxfan up you could use it to make the freezer work.

Old freezers always made good places to hide when we played hide n' seek as kids too. grin

Now you know..... and knowing is half the battle.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
