We have a small upright freezer with a couple of issues, perhaps indicating one problem.

It does not hold a constant temperature. Without any record keeping, I think the temp varies 15*F (getting as high as +5*F); this is on the coldest setting.

When my wife defrosted it, the two top shelves had frost, the next one didn't have any, and the lowest one only had frost in the back.

What kind of problem might this indicate?


Thanks,
Tom

Hi Tom,

You have a bad compressor, it would cost about $400-$500 to have a new compressor installed, not worth it, you can buy a new freezer for that price.

Is the cu. ft. found somewhere? I haven't found it listed anywhere.

Otherwise, do I just measure the interior?

Yes,

The formula for Cubic feet is:
length × width × height
