Free Chest Freezer - Not Working

11 posts in this topic

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.

    • Yes, you do have to have at least a weak cell signal and battery for the GPS to work. I know that can be challenging at times in the woods.
    •   Not sure about the new V6, but the old inline 6 was bulletproof, and had a lot of low end torque, which is a desirable feature in an off-road vehicle.       Any 1/2 ton pickup truck from the 70's and early 80's in particular, had a much better frame than a Jeep.  Body panels rust in all of them.   Not saying this is a deal-breaker for a Jeep, just something to watch for, since it is a very common problem.    
    • After doing a little looking there are a lot of options to these things. Anyone know how that new V6 compares to the in line 6? Some of the stuff I would like is the bigger tires and because I would consider putting a plow on it a lower rear end gear. The Dana 44 rear axel would be nice and would want a hard and soft top. I'm in no hurry to get one so Ill wait till the right one comes around. There are a lot of them out there that never leave the tar. More options in the later models as far as transmissions to. So it also comes down to how much I want to spend on one and how late of a model to buy. Sure don't want to spend 35K on a new one.
    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....
