Thousands of years ago, ancient Mesopotamians discovered that cold food rotted more slowly than food left outside. So, they dug big pits into the ground, insulated them with straw or sand, and then topped them with ice and snow from the nearest mountains. These pits, or ice caves, were used to preserve the food for two or three weeks at a time. Mesopotamians understood that warm air from outside could prevent the snow from cooling the food, so the entrance was kept small and narrow to prevent air seepage.
 
This was how food was preserved for centuries until about the late 1600s, when England and France created their own version with the invention of the ice house. Although many were at least partially in the ground, some were designed as thatched roof pits that could keep food cold or provide chipped ice for drinks and desserts -- with the help of snow and ice brought in from lakes -- for about a year. The process was similar to the ice cave, with an insulator such as sawdust or small branches that was topped with snow and sawdust.

These eventually gave way to the creation of the icebox, a small cabinet that had a compartment for holding a large block of ice and another compartment for storing food. These were common until about the 1920s, when electric refrigerators and freezers began to make their debut.

By then, science and industry had established the idea of mechanical refrigeration, in which a circulating chemical gas kept things in a compartment cold.

Freezer Repair Tips

WARNING!!!  Before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance, always disconnect your appliance from its power source to avoid personal injury or even death. 

Attempting to repair a freezer without proper training and safety procedures can be dangerous.  Freezers should be repaired by a trained professional who has the knowledge and experience to safely fix your appliance.  Repairs performed by an unqualified person could result in serious injury or even death.

If the unit is not self-defrosting and the temperatures begin to rise.

  1. Check the frost buildup on the inside of the freezer. If it is heavily frosted, manually defrost the freezer by turning it off at the thermostat. Unplug from the wall and allow 12 hours for the unit to defrost, with both doors open.

If the unit is not an automatic self-defrosting model.

  1. Defrost the unit once a year or as often as needed. Follow the proper defrosting methods. DO NOT USE a knife, pick, hammer, chisel, screwdriver, etc. or any sharp object.
  • Important Tip - Follow all procedures outlined under the refrigerator heading.
