Expert:  Bryan replied 4 years ago.
ok open the freezer and check the back wall real good for frost, tell me if you see any at all, Bryan
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
No Bryan, I looked carefully and drug my hand along the back wall - no frost
Expert:  Bryan replied 4 years ago.
ok but the freezer is working correctly right?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

yes! One thing i forgot to mention was about 1 year ago this unit was moved to its current location and I think the guy that moved it DID transport it on its side! But it worked at that time the minute I turned it on and has been working up until a couple days ago. Do you think that has any affect on the current situation or in the future?

 

.................thnx! mark

Expert:  Bryan replied 4 years ago.
