Welcome to the site,
You said, you have a Kelvinator chest freezer, model number CFS101SM1W. This freezer is in excellent condition and was working ok. I notice that there was a rust spot on the bottom area so I decided to spray paint the entire inside with the appropriate appliance spray paint. After spray painting the freezer will not cool.
How old was your freezer?
This must be an ancient freezer!
And Unfortunately I was not able to tell you to leave it alone and not to turn it off!
You did not cause this!
Unfortunately it was so old that it probably was already on it's last legs.
Here is an interesting report I just read!
Repair or replace your appliances?
When to pull the plug on your old freezer
It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model ?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your ,freezer
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that freezer under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your freezer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new freezer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive freezer
six or more years old .
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a freezer you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

It needs to be defrosted. If ice builds up quickly again then start shopping for another freezer as the repair is not worth it. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

Sounds like the system is low on freon. The other common problem is a dirty condenser. Insure the condenser is clean, if it is. You will need to charge the system with freon. Which only a qualified refrigeration tech should do.
