I’m thinking about retiring my old upright freezer that I converted years ago for a new chest freezer. I was looking at them at Lowe’s. I told the sales people that I was thinking about replacing my converted freezer I have in my garage for my brewing, with a newer efficient chest freezer. They told me that if I put a new freezer in my garage that there is a good chance it won’t run right. They said that it my run non stop in the summer and not run at all in the winter. I ask them about putting a temp. controller on it to over ride the compressor, they told me that it is not the compressor that causes the problem it is the freon they use now that causes the problem.
Has anyone run in to this problem of putting a new freezer in their garage that isn’t heated or cooled? Looking for help on this subject.
