Caravell Tropicalized Chest Freezer will only cool to 12 degrees, need it to cool to zero.

I have a freezer that is a Caravell Tropicalized, says Nestle on the front, same as the ones in convenience stores for prepackaged ice cream. Problem is, it will only get to 12 degrees. I need it to cool to zero. It runs all the time and does not shut off. There is no ice build up around the compressor. What could this be?

SOURCE: door liner on chest freezer broke due to ice build-up

if you can't find a replacement, use a piece of flat vinyl siding that goes on houses. You can heat it and bend it as needed, or cut it and screw the pieces to a balsa wood frame for lightweight support. Glue or epoxy probably won't work as the cold temps make them brittle but external caulking may be ok to hold the pieces together. Be sure to sand all edges and corners as the cut plastic can be sharp. If you can disassemble the unit and place the door face down, you can fill the cavity with insulating foam to help stabilize it.

SOURCE: Kenmore 23.1 cf Chest Freezer not cooling below 14F

Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.

SOURCE: Used chest freezer not cooling

Slobberlips,

One of two situations has occured with your used freezer:

1: The unit freon needs to be recharged, this happens when you develope a leak in the freon coils, or the unit is old enough that the freon has reached it's usable potential.

2: The compressor may seem to run fine, but in fact, has an internal problem.

My suggestion, return the unit if you can, and walk the isles of your local Menards, Sears, or any other local vendor in your area, and see how much prices have declined for the chest freezer.

The initial investment for a new freezer will offset any problems you might have with any other used unit, and the warranty is always a plus if you do have problems with the new unit.

Hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: freezer compressor running, but no cooling

If the compressor is running and there's no cooling, chances are you have a sealed system leak somewhere. Meaning the machine has lost it's refrigerant charge. Pretty much need a set of gages at this point and start checking for potential leaks.

Do not put a towel on your freezer or anything that could prevent a good seal from top of freezer.

    Is there an ambient temperature range outside of which the freezer won't work well? Will it go down to zero degrees?


    It seem ambient temperature will not affect so much inside temperature since any freezer has good insulation. Normally freezer will go down to below zero degree
