    Default Very Old Hotpoint Chest Freezer

    Greetings Folks,
    I am new here but in no way new to appliance repair issues.
    I believe it was 1978 when I paid $40 for a very old Hotpoint chest freezer.

    I was only hoping it would last until we could buy a new one.
    It has the old round corners and very thick walls and lid.
    Twice it has died on me. Once in 1982 and again two years ago.
    This recent time I knew what to do for it because of what I had learnt in 1982.
    On the back right side there is a box that has the knob to turn to adjust how cold it will be.
    Me always being the kind of guy that will at least try to repair anything opened up that box.
    Looking deep into it I saw a corroded set of points like we had in the distributors of the old cars.
    I simply cleaned up the points and it purred back to life.
    It is still doing a great job for us.
    Before telling me to get rid of that energy hog listen to this.
    I have a nice Kill-a-Watt device and I did a 30 day test on it.
    That old girl used a remarkably small amount of power.
    I am just wondering how old it is.
    I see I can put pictures here so tomorrow I will have to take a picture and post it.

    Hi,

    I am just wondering how old it is
    Most internet stuff doesn't go back past the 90's....but if you post the full model # and serial # we will see what we can find.
