IS the compressor running? If so u probably cracked a line and lost the refrigerant charge.

By front, I presume you DO NOT mean the top. In that case, either should be fine.

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.

SOURCE: chest freezer motor runs but the inside doesn't

Sounds like you have a bad compressor or it has lost the gas charge.

I moved my freezer on its side to clean and it wont get cold any more what do i do/


Fridges and freezers often don't like being started right after they have been moved/tipped, it's best to give them some time (a few hours) in the upright position to allow the refrigerant fluids to settle back where they're supposed to be before restarting.

I moved my freezer and now will only stay cold for a short time, why?


You jard the liquids. Did you just move it a little or move like to another house because if you move a frig or freezer somewhere or lay on it's side you shouldn't plug in for an hour or more so it all settles or it won't work. Hope this helped

Need -20 degrees Celsius...Will this brand get there?


If all is ideal maybe -10 an occationally -15 and this is F considerable coolder than -20C. ALSO fyi a chest freezer will stay at or below these temps better than an upright and especially a self defrosting model. Because a chest freezer you dont loose all the cold air when you open the door. TYhey are not made in auto matic defrost as far as I know (never have seen one but then I havent been looking for one either. An up right freezer can be manual defrost or automatic. but the cold air falls ouit every time the door is opened.

Please let em know if this helps you by giving me as high a mark as you can and thank you for using fixya.

GE chest freeze won't get cold


the noise your hearing indicates the possibility of a bad start relay on the comp or possibly it just came loose during the move. on the side of the compressor you will see 2-3 wires running into an electrical connection reseat this first. if still no operation replace teh relay. you can purchase thru any reputable appliance parts dealer. after replacing the relay if you have no operation then likely problem is seized comp.
domestic freezers do not have low pressure switches that indicate low freon charge.
