Well my Frezzer is a 7 Cubic Freezer standing up one and it open's from the top of it.
It does have alittle thing at the side that you can turn the temp down or up going to look at it quickly see what it say's
It's set at 6 and it's like one of these freezer's - http://www.sears.ca/product/frigidai...730-GLFC1526FW
it does have to be turned down once every year for it to defrost as the ice does bulid up inside and I know the higher the number the colder it is.
I've lost the manual to this since I've had it for years but going leave the cosplay in for 3 weeks then hand wash them both and hang dry them.
