    Vintage Chest Freezer

    That's a good point. It might be the thermal cutoff. When I plug it in sparks fly from the plug and the breaker trips.

    The appliance shop said that it'll cost around $600, as day_tripper indicated. :( So! I am going to find a compressor and ask my neighbor who is a plumber braze the fittings. Sears doesn't sell this compressor anymore, so I could really use the community here to help me locate something that...

    Thanks, everyone. Coming across these old freezers isn't too common around here. So, I hate to say it, I'm going to pay to have it fixed. I'll call a local appliance repair shop tomorrow for a quote. Here is a picture of the compressor.

    Thanks, MaryB. I think I burned up the compressor too :'( any idea where I can get a new compressor? Looks like this is turning out to be a very expensive mistake.

    How do I get into the insulation between the outside and inside? I accidentally punctured a refrigerant line in the back from screwing the lid hinges back on :(

    Thanks, everyone! So it's between a 51-57. It still works great. I'm thinking about restoring it to make an awesome keezer. I can't find any information about it to buy a new plate over the temp dial--the hole in the lower right side of the picture.
