I'm looking at this fridge/freezer to buy, the door says freezer but the seller claims it is a fridge/freezer. Does anyone know what it is? Frost free? Thanks,

I would say the this is most definitely a freezer only. The placement of the shelves, especially the door are a dead giveaway. And, hello, thats what the label on the door says too.

It's a freezer alright... unlikely that this would be a frost-free model. 


However, beware: it may not be cooling properly so the seller "thinks" it is just a refrigerator.

Fridge Conversion?

Thank you all for your replies. Can it be converted to a refrigerator with new fridge thermostat? There is a new Frigidaire fridge/Freezer convertible, good idea but does not look cool like vintage ones.

Freezer to Fridge?

Doubtful. Freezers have an evaporator coil that runs under every shelf throughout the freezer space. With that much cooling going on you're still going to freeze things by the nature and design of the system itself.

Also, these older units normally had a thermostat capillary mounted directly to the evaporator. Operation depended upon evaporator temperature, not the temperature inside the box. You'd want to get a thermostat that will work right to avoid swings in temp in between cycles.
