The plug may have been mashed and deformed.
Replace it.

Chest freezer ice is filling up around the top of the inner lid


Turn it off, remove the stock, tap the sides with a block of wood and scrape to the bottom of the freezer with a dustpan and scoop it out. Refit the stock and switch back on. Takes 10 minutes. Check the lid seals properly once defrosted and check it's not accidentally in superfreeze mode.

One side of freezer has stopped freezing... bottom is not frozen


You have either got a blockage in the system or there is a leak. My bet it is a leak. Seen this many times on the whirlpool.

Used Kenmore freezer won't get cold enough


If it is running but not cooling enough the problem is in the sealed system.

If you started it up just after hauling it home it may have be moved around enough to get oil in the systems smaller tubing causing problems. Unplug the unit for 24 hours and let it sit. Try it again for 24 hours and see if it cools.

If not this means either there is a refrigerant (freon) leak in the system or a restriction causing the refrigerant to not flow properly.

Either one are an expensive repair. and will require a professional to look at.

Chest freezer not freezing on bottom


Sounds like a circulation problem. Does it have a fan inside the freezer. Should be bdhind the floor or one of the wall panels. There should be a vent for the air to circulat through. If so check to make sure it's running when the compressor runs.

Frigidaire Deluxe Chest Freezer is constantly


Two things to check without knowing the model number.

It is possible the drain plug was left out or not inserted correctly after defrosting and it is leaking..

Also there is sometimes an evaporator pan with a heater element on the bottom. If the heater element failed the evaporator pan would overflow.
