I have several chest freezers, they are in an outdoor setting and
subject to variable temperatures.
All the freezers are set at -10*F, when the outside temp drops into
the high 30's low 40's ONE of the freezers temperature goes UP to around
0*F. This not a problem for the food but it does trigger my temperature
alarm. This particular freezer is on an outside wall so may see ambient
temps lower than all the others.
How could low temperatures cause this.
Read the owners manual... it will give you min/max ambient temps for the
The cause of you issue may be because of the condensing coil refrigerant
temperature/pressure change in low ambient temps. Is the freezer with the
issues the same make/model as the others? are they the same age??
