This is what happens in game when my Sim tries to make a purchase when I play them:

An update. I made a new retail store and placed and stocked the LIcecold Freezer. Yes, my customers did buy items from the freezer. So the freezer does work on my owned lots. But the graphics are not fixed - even though the freezer is fully stocked, it still looks empty. On unowned lots, my sims cannot purchase from the freezer at all. They just shrug and walk away. My game is fully patched except for the very latest (Easter) patch and I have no mods that I can think of that could interfere with the freezer. To be sure, though, I tried starting a new game and playing with mods disabled. It makes no difference.

@canelacaliente made a post for the freezer not shown as full here: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4-Bug-Reports/TO-ADD-GTW-Retail-Freezer-Warmer-Dosen-t-Change-to-S...

 

Best to add your voice there.

 

As for the warmer, I'm unsure if it works at all. For me, it acts like a normal fridge, where Sims get food (including my own) and just eat it without ever paying for it.

 

Might be a mod conflict so if anyone has an opinion on how the warmer is supposed to work, let me know (that is for when I run the store). Freezer works fine if owned for me, they buy stuff from it. Just not for the warmer.

@crinrict, I haven't run a store yet but if you go back a page to the post from @Simalleyaile there is a link to a post on the forum written by him/her.  If I'm understanding it correctly, the warming rack is strictly for storage and sims can't purchase from it.  Don't know if that is how the devs intended the warmer to work, or if not being able to purchase from it is a bug, but looks like it has been that way since at least the time of that post in 2015.

Yeah, I don't know either but then why should it work differently when you're not playing it ? I've never been to a Store that didn't belong to me that had one.

 

Can you buy from normal fridges when you're not playing them ?

 

What's the point of having a warmer if you can't sell your stuff from it ? I thought it worked the same way the freezer does ?

My problem with the freezer is this. In a retail owned by one of my sims who put veggies for sale in the freezer NPCs will open the freezer but my active Sim, the one I am playing with and that is now the owner of the store will not open the freezer it will simply look at it and the action will be deleted.

I have this problem too.

My clients can purchase from the freezer, but it never appears full, and I can never purchase the items stored in it while playing other sims.

So the gameplay is fine as long as I'm the store owner, but when I play as a CLIENT, it's completely broken.

I can confirm that the previous bug has been repaired - not beeing able to SELL from the freezer, but this is something different. Just as annoying, since I made my grocery store for a good reason :<

  • Sims can now purchase items from the Lice Cold Freezer when visiting an NPCs Retail lot.

I doubt they fixed the not showing as full so if that is a major issue still, please open a new thread.

I didn't realize this issue was supposedly fixed in a previous patch, because it's broken in my game. It was working fine and then after one of the patches it no longer works.

Whenever I try to buy from a lice freezer on an NPC owned lot, the action fails. The sim waves like something is in the way. But as long as the lot is owned by someone, anyone other than NPC, the freezer works. 

This is in a long-running game. I don't remember if I ever tested a new game.
