  1. Revco U2020GA14, -20C Freezer
    • An apparently fine freezer for five years. Then, one day (20 August 2008), the power supply (?) to the compressor (?) spontaneously caught fire. Thankfully this happened during working hours and we were able to figure out where the smoke was coming from before the entire lab caught fire (within the main biological building at MIT). Photos below. A very unsettling experience.
      • We're waiting to hear back from Revco. Inquiry and information sent 21 August 2008 via Reference #270202. Contact for Revco Customer Service is +1 866 984 3766.
