Can you stand up a chest freezer?
Then, how do you move a chest freezer?
Please use the following steps when relocating an upright or chest freezer:
- Disconnect the power cord from the wall receptacle.
- Remove the food, defrost and clean the freezer.
- Use blankets to protect the freezer finish from scratches.
- Place the freezer on its side for moving only if you have no other choice.
Furthermore, how much does it cost to run a stand up freezer? Generally, they cost a little more than $4 a month to run when divided. Upright freezers cost around $14 a month to run. Both options come in energy-efficient models, which can further your cost savings.
One may also ask, which is better stand up freezer or chest freezer?
Chest freezers: Chest freezers have around 20 percent more usable space than a upright freezer. Air doesn't circulate as much in a chest freezer. This helps prevent freezer burn better than uprights. If there is a blackout, the chest freezer will keep your food frozen longer than an upright.
How long do you wait to plug in a freezer after moving it?
After transporting: If it has been necessary to transport the refrigerator on its side (ex. Top Freezer and SxS models), it should stand upright for an equal amount of time as it was on its side before plugging it in. If it was on its side for more than a day, leave standing for 24 hours before running.
