Power Requirement for Chest Freezer?

reub | Aug 14, 200812:29 PM     17

Hi All,

Thanks to everyone who's posted with great information on chest freezers in past threads. I have one question that I don't think has yet been discussed.

We're looking at putting in a small (5-8 cubic foot) chest freezer in our condo, but due to the (poor) way the electrical was installed, it might have to go on a 15 Amp circuit that's shared by a number of lights and electronics.

For those who have chest freezers, do you have them on a dedicated circuit? Do you know if they need to be? Any suggestions?
