Question about Freezers
Temp alarm is on and won't go away. it blows cool air but not cold air. won't get to zero degrees
How old is your Freezer ?
Make and Model
This can be anyone of a host of problems,
1. Thermostat bad
2.Freon coolant low
3. Coolant leak.
4.Are the coils on the bottom of the freezer behind the grille or in the rear of the box?
These are the narrow black tubes that run parallel to each other, back and forth.
They carry the coolant to and from the compressor!
If they are under the freezer, then they may be covered with years of dust and lint and in need of a refrigerator brush down there to gently clean the stuff out!
Air needs to pass over them as the fan sucks it in through the front grille to cool them off.
The brush is $8-$10 at the hard ware store.
I hope my suggestions help.
Let me know how it goes.
Bless You Huuum

Below is an article I read about these things
Repair or replace?
When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator and or freezer
It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Judy, thanks for your post!
From my understanding the alarm on your Frigidaire commercial chest freezer continues to go off. You have explained that the temperature is at zero degrees. It sounds like you could have a potential issue with your thermostat or sensor. I would recommend having a professional technician come out to properly diagnosis your freezer to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Good luck. -Matt
