Apparently the freezer healed itself! 🙂
The repairman was out today and said there were only two or three things that could be wrong with it and those all seem ok. It’s cooling just fine. The door is sealing just fine. It’s back in the spot where it was before it had a meltdown, literally, and we’ve taken some of the food out of the other freezers that were stuffed too full and now they’re all down within an acceptable temperature range.
What I’m hoping to do is have chicken, ground beef, and ready to heat and eat foods in one; sausage (cajun and breakfast), bacon and other beef (roasts, steaks) in another; butter, cheese, ice cream, flour, yeast and other baking goods (chocolate chips, nuts, etc.) in another and finally, fruits (berries, sliced bananas), frozen fruit juice and frozen veggies in the other. We’ll see how that goes.
We have a fairly small freezer in our garage that was a gift from my parents when hubby and I got married more than 44 years ago. They’d used it at home (I remembered it being used as a teenager) and offered us a choice of either the freezer or cash. We took the freezer, and here it is, after probably 50 years of use, and it’s still running strong. It desperately needs to be defrosted right now, but I can’t imagine a new freezer these days lasting even 20 years…. In the length of time we’ve had this one freezer, we’re on our 3rd or 4th refrigerator…. ridiculous, huh? 🙂
Exactly. That’s why ours that are 15 years old and 10 years old scare me. When we bought the new fridge, the salesman asked if we wanted the extended warranty, then he said “You’re going to need it”, kinda joking but not joking. The less than one year old dishwasher has been worked on two or three times.
I know moving four or five times hasn’t helped our freezers but . . that’s life.

It just needed to cool off!! The low tonight is supposed to be in the upper 80’s and once again ERCOT is asking us to conserve! They have not made any changes or upgrades. GRRRR
Any changes they’re going to make are likely not going to be beneficial to the consumer. Relying in wind is not reliable and they’ve spent enough money on that when they could have been upgrading other things. I’m afraid it’s going to get worse there before it gets better.
