Haier 5.0 cu. ft. HCM-050 not freezing

The freezer recently stopped freezing and in fact doesn't run at all. Prior to this happening there was very little frost built up on the interior or the freezer. My mechanical/electrical knowledge is somewhat limited but with the right information I have someone that could help. Thanks.

I have the same freezer and recently it quit freezing. The thermostat is my problem. I checked the power outputs to turn on the compressor and it was not there until i tapped on the thermostat. I am currently trying to find another thermostat

Unfortunately this sounds pretty surely like you need to get your freezer checked for leaks and re-gassed; control on refrigerants these days makes it very difficult and probably illegal to try and do this yourself, but any refrigeration repair guy should be able to do the job. slight worry is that the compressor could have seized, but this is not so often the case, sometimes a sharp whack can unjam a compressor, but get the fridge guy to look at it if he does the gas. Hope this helps :)

After placing my Haier 7 cu. ft. / 198 liter Chest Freezer HCM070LA in a horizontal or tilted position it doesn't want to freeze

If you have run it in a tilted position, the oil has migrated from the compressor to the evaporator. You need a technician to flush the oil back to the compressor. Only run equipment like this on a flat level surface. and always allow to stand a few hours after moving before switching on.

Haier 5.3 Cu ft Chest freezer. power is on but compressor doesn't run. There is click sound but nothing happens after.

The click sound is the compressor starter relay closing but if nothing further happens it is likely that there has been a compressor failure

I have deep freezer chest that does not freeze but when you plug it in you can hear it click on but will not get cold at all has been unplugged for a few years but stored in a dry building

If it doesn't get cold at all, then your compressor is not running. Which could be the start relay or start capacitor or even the compressor. The relay and capacitor are not that expensive and pretty easy to replace, but if it is the compressor then you might not want to put that much money into an older unit.
