The Great Freezer Clean: 2019

Unless you're in and out of your freezer a dozen times a day, I'd say you're in the market for a new gasket.

And check the door to make sure it's not warped.....my all fridge wasn't keeping things cold and I glanced down along the door and saw the bend in it which allowed room air into the fridge...but I agree, it may be time to get a new one....probably more efficient also.

Repacked - @Anna N had some lovely baskets for me

 

There is an inventory on my phone of everything in there

Sort of like at the end of the movie where all the evil has been banished - and a bloody hand comes up through the ground!

One of these days I'll get my sh*t together and go to work on my two upright freezers that are bulging.

One of these days...

 Freezer looks fabulous.  I think you’re probably good for another 10 years!

But will I be able to move the baskets in 10 years?

After you defrost ... of course you will!😂

Well...some days I am, but that's rare. I *did* replace a gasket on my old one (pro tip, for those as dense as me...it's infinitely easier if you remove the door), but it died shortly thereafter when the refrigeration coils rusted through.

 

I think it's partly because of my humid climate here on the coast (and I mean *right* on the coast, I can see the harbour from my window) and partly because my upright, for reasons of logistical necessity, shares a space with my portable dishwasher. This is less than ideal in more ways than I can begin to count, but it's literally the only way I can have them both usable in my current rental.

 

...and to forestall the inevitable suggestion, we've already begun packing for a late-spring move. :P
