I have a kenmore chest type deep freeze and I recently started storing bags of ice in it as my ice machine made too much- so I bagged it and put it in the deep freeze. Now I notice that the exterior wall of my freezer is very hot and uncomfortable to put your hand on. At first I thought it was a defrost cycle- but its been that way for a week now and I am concerned.

Is there an issue with story ice in a freezer? Does it trigger a defrsot cycle or is something shot?

Thanks in advance for help and insight.

By the way, the freezer is working fine and stay cold. Just the outside walls are hot.

Asking for our help without providing a model number is like calling 911 for help without providing your address. Due to technology, an emergency team may eventually show up at your house. Here, all you may get is the sound of crickets. ie help us help you.

Have you guys seen the new topic page, where you compose a new topic? You just cannot avoid seeing the big reminders for including the MODEL NUMBER. I can only conclude that our feckless unclewigging has chosen to ignore the instructions to include his model number.

OK, OK- I will post the model number. Yes, I saw where it asked for it but did not include because a) its not in my primary residence and wont be able to get the model until my next trip to the property and B) because I thought the question was general in nature. ie. can you store ice in a deep freeze; is it normal for the exterior wall of deep freeze to get really hot and stay hot, etc.

I will post the model number asap. Thanks- and remember, I am but a grasshopper.

... can you store ice in a deep freeze
... is it normal for the exterior wall of deep freeze to get really hot and stay hot

1) depends on the temperature of the Freezer ...
2) depends if that model has an exterior Condenser Coil and / or Condenser Fan
or if the Condenser Coils are built into the back wall and / or side walls
If the Compressor is ruinning "forever" because of a bad Door Gasket
or a leak in the Sealed System,
then the Compressor and Condenser Coils will be overworked..
Define "hot" ... if you put the palm of your hand on the surface ...
how many seconds can you count ?
OR use a infrared (laser) thermometer
