Question about Avanti Freezer CF62
My chest freezer is only 4mnths old and no longer freezes. it turns on and off but doesn't get cold
The evaporator fan in the back of the freezer blows over the cooling
coils. Those coils are typically hidden from view behind a panel.
The problem you describe would lead me to suspect that the coils are iced over. That is why there is some cold, but not enough. The fan is blowing over a block of ice. An overfilled freezer is another possibility.
Iced over coils may be the result of a malfunctioning defrost system, a plugged drain tube, a poor seal on the door seals to the cabinet resulting in a lot of moist air entering the freezer (or fridge) or the refrigerant level is under pressure (needs more refrigerant added).
Most refrigerators never need refrigerant added, but after 25 years, it could be that yours does. However, it can only be done by a pro, and it probably isn't worth investing that kind of money in such an old fridge.
I recommend you start by unplugging the fridge and inspecting the coils inside the freezer. If they aren't iced over, then the door seals may be still be the problem by letting in warm air.
