This is more a freezer question than a beer question, but I don't know of any GE Hotpoint forums. I recently inherited a modified GE Hotpoint chest freezer converted keggerator from a friend. I had to do a minor fix to get it to power on initially (removed the built-in thermostat) and it now runs, but after 10 hours I checked the thermometer I placed inside and it's still sitting at ~62 F. I can hear the compressor running. Could it have lost it's freon charge? Any thoughts?
Second question: More beer related.
I have a Hefeweizen hooked up to the co2 in the freezer right now. It's sitting at 11 psi which would be about right if it were the 40 degrees it should be right now. My question is will there be any effects of carbing at 60+ degrees for a couple of days before (hopefully) dropping down to 40?
