Question

Is there a step inside?

Does this freezer have a step at the bottom that cuts into the footprint (this is usually to make room for the compressor)? If so, how big is that step?

It does indeed have a step. It is about 8 1/2" top to bottom, x 8 1/2" wide x @ 16-ish" front to back. The step is on the right side.

I think with any kind of expensive electrical equipment you should definitely consider a surge protector.

There's a dial on the front so you can set the temp cooler/warmer, but there's no way to specify the exact temp. Will probably take a little experimenting.

Question

Compressor Doesn't Automatically Come On

I purchased this unit about a month and a half ago. From day one, the freezer will turn on and freeze the food fine, but the compressor won't automatically turn on, so the food starts to thaw. I have to turn the unit off then on again for it to cool back down. This happens twice a day. Any solutions for this problem? I really don't want to deal with a return. Thanks.

This is definately not normal operation for this unit. You should call 1-800-Frigidaire and have a service technician come out and take a look at it.

Yes, this Freezer is can be used in an unheated garage. The colder the ambient temperature the more efficient - - as the freezer will won't run as much.
