One about 5-6yrs old, the other about 2. One cools but won't freeze and the other has power but won't cool at all. I was thinking of seeing how much to repair the smaller of the two and keep it as a spare (I got a new upright recently). But I wanted to ask what you all would do. Maybe someone on this board buys and sells used appliances or something and would be interested in buying them for a fair price parts or repair?

Anyway, I didn't want to post them since they are not in full working order and I figured there would be some creative ideas on how to get rid of them (or fix). I do have a working washing machine though that is from the 2000's if anyone interested (traditional kind with the agitator and not the new woke kind).

Thx fellas
find a nice ravine, blow big holes in them with guns

NO!!!
You wouldn’t believe how much insulation is in those walls to clean up on a 103* day with no wind.
Don’t ask me how I know……

my suggestion if you fish is to make a worm bed, or a minnow tank.
If you throw big parties, get barn wood to sheath it making a big ice chest. I’ve actually seen this. Very nice.
Make it a into a mulch bed. Use a pitchfork to stir the contents around.

A dead freezer also works great in the garage for paint storage. The insulation in it will keep the paint from freezing in the winter. Just drill a hole and hang a drop light in it. A 60w incandescent bulb will keep it above freezing.
