It could be the year for Dook and Coach Krewsaweski. My names for him used to be waaay more suitable for censorship. But, I have mellowed

Challenge accepted! We now return to brewing related material. By the way, you mentioned yooper in an earlier post. I believe there is a little town up in the U.P. named Chapel Hill and everything is Carolina Blue. I passed through there back in 1985/86.

The Kenmore 14.8cf model 16542 just went on sale today at Sears. Normally $424, it's now on sale and $326 with coupon code SEARS35OFF300AFFILIATEDEALS. Local pickup is free.

15cf-class models typically sell for $440-495 new. This one does have a lighted lid, but I personally do not like but some may. Sears website will tell you if you qualify for any local rebates.

That is a great price, home depot had the ge 14.8 for $299 at one point last year. I waited and waited for it to drop back down but it never did. Wish I could have bought this one but I am currently building a 7 cu ft right now and plan to get another 7 cu ft for fermentation. 2 7 cu ft freezers cost about the same as one 14.8 model so I decided to go that route.

Thadius,

If I could like all your posts at once, I would but I thought a personal "shout out" was more appropriate. I really appreciate you posting all this info on these freezers. I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that. Thanks man!


Does anyone know if the hump in the Magic Chef HMCF7W goes all the way front to back like other freezers or is it just in the rear corner like the Maytag 14.8CF Thanks.

Ok, thanks. I was hoping it was like the Maytags with just a corner hump.

Thanks! I appreciate this.

Unfortunately, this thread's getting a bit too jumbled up and disorganized to keep a ton of my drawings. I'm only addiing to the chaos.

I'll be removing my posts and images from this thread in a few minutes. I've made a comprehensive thread for the drawings, where I can control the formatting and layout a bit better. Check it out:

Chest Freezer Spec Sheets and Layout Drawings

I don't want to take away from the discussion here, so I'll try to keep my thread as on-point as possible.
