Turn the unit on

Chest frezer has the electonic control pantl. Push it at +10F and it will turn OFF. Nowhere in the manual does it tell you how to turn in back ON. Left upluged, powers back up OFF. You can push buttons to make it OFF. What do you push to make it ON?

My frezer is getting hot on the sides-why?

Its normal. The manufacturers got smart and put the condenser in the outside freezer walls. A lot of home refrigerators also have the same hot walls. Hope this helps good luck.

defrost cycle is innactive, will ice up shortly and may not turn compressor off, defrost the unit totally(Turn off for 2 days with door open) and remove all water from the unit once done. Restart unit and should work normal for a week or so, ie...defrost cycle...get back to me if this is the case and will sort it from there, Russ

If this unit has a control it would be located on the outer left side in the lower right hand corner. There would be a dial, the higher the number the cooler the temperature. Many of these chest freezers did not have an adjustable control.

I got delivery today for the same freezer and had the same question.
I just called GE's customer service number (800-626-2005) and the agent told me that GE uses this button panel (which has the green on/off light switch, the two white switches, and the round control dial) for all or most of its freezers. But the buttons do not do anything on the 5 cubic foot chest freezer. They are not connected to anything and are non-active buttons. On other freezer models above this one, the two switches serve a purpose, but not the 5CF model. This is a simple, inexpensive freezer and it doesn't have bells and whistles--but it does have the same control panel as the multi-feature freezers. Hope that helps.

Meat along the outside seems to be thawing out.

HI, If you want the temp warmer, move the control to the smaller #'s
If there are no #'s, turn the control clockwise and see if it shuts off. if it shuts off, that is the right direction for warmer temps.
I hope this helps you. please let me know.

The cabinet is the condensor. The lines run all around it. Unless you add an external condensor kit, the only safe place for holes is the door.
