sounds like you may have a refridgerant blockage in the system. it may need a regas to see if it can be unblocked, as this is not a quick job it may cost you but phone around on the cost/feasibility of it. it may be just as well to get a new or second hand freezer.

Check that the air vent is free from anything blocking it at it maybe over heating.

SOURCE: new chest freezer not getting cold

I am having the same problem. How long did it take?
I bought mine second hand and think it may be broken. I plugged it in 8 hours ago. I can hear it running but it's not cold yet.

Freezer has quit freezing only a little over a year old. manufactor date 6/2009 compressor is running will only cool down to 50 degrees thermostat set on coldest.


Is the compressor continually running? If so then there could be a leak in the system or the compressor is damaged. If it's running then stopping, the cold control (thermostat) could be damaged.

I unplugged my chest freezer to clean it out, when I plugged it back in it won't get cold. It's in excellent condition. Never has it gave me a problem. It's approx. 5 years old. Ed V


Try turning the thermostat down to O and then back to max a few times this may free a stuck bimetallic strip. If this doesn't work and assuming you haven't damaged any components in some way then all that may be required is a new thermostat.

Chest freezer model mfco5mobw4 been plugg in for 2 days now set on the coldest setting not getting cold compressor is warm


God day,
Either the refrigerant has leaked out or the compressor isn't pumping properly. If you can put your ear up to the unit and it hums that is the compressor running.
No practical repair possible unless the unit is under 5 years of age in which case you are entitled to factory warranty service.

After being unplugged for one year, my Frigidaire 5 cu. ft. / 142 liter Chest Freezer FFC05M0A turns on, but does not get cold. What is the problem?


It's probable that you've lost refrigerant in the cooling system. Unfortunately, leaks in those systems can be hard to find so check your warranty to see if the labor is still covered.

Chest Freezer not cooling


Please don't rate this solution, as anything but FixYa brings my rating down, but here's what you've got:
You have a refrigerant leak (commonly referred to a Freon, but these days usually R134A refrigerant). Some refrigerant has leaked, so you are still getting some cooling, but there is not enough refrigerant left to cool throughout the entire evaporator coils. This is NOT a repairable condition, as the coils are foamed in place and not accessable for leak repair. If this unit is under 5 years old (typical sealed system warranty) the manufacturer will most likely replace your freezer with a new one. If over 5 years, you are out of luck. Buy a replacement freezer.
