While it is a pretty diy project, IINM it will work with any electric magnet enabled fridge. Essentially when you put a magnet it's closing a circuit, so you just got to jump the circuit with a smart shabbos aware relay :)

Link to the product/thread?

Is this doable for someone with no background knowledge of the tech at all? Is there a step by step guide anywhere?

It's probably going to be a bit tough. I can help you if your willing to try.

Is Shabbos Mode necessary on a Freezer?

Looking into something like this https://www.costco.com/maytag-20-cu.-ft.-frost-free-upright-freezer-with-fastfreeze-option.product.4000137534.html

but concerned about any new tech, led lights etc.

A relative has a LG LFDS22520S - she figured out magnets on the top for the fridge. Is there a way to have the bottom freezer useable on Shabbos?

Where do you put the magnet for the freezer?

Is it a magnet sensor. Or a switch?

Mine has a freezer door. Not a drawer. 

Check the top of the freezer, in the front center...

She can't seem to find a place the magnet works, hence the question if anyone has experience with this specific model/type

Based on the pictures it seems to be directly in the center, on the top of it

I would imagine you can find the place by going around the door with a piece of metal and seeing where the magnets are on the door

LG bottom freezer shabbos magnet placement

On the left side, underneath the drawer rail bar thing, the plastic jutts out - put the magnet underneath that.

How do you turn on shabbos mode on a "Element 21.2 cu. ft. UPRIGHT CONVERTIBLE FREEZER/REFRIGERATOR
EHUF21CECW | EHUF21CECS"  ?
It says it has one but the manual doesn't say how to activate it.
