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.
God day, Either the refrigerant has leaked out or the compressor isn't pumping properly. If you can put your ear up to the unit and it hums that is the compressor running. No practical repair possible unless the unit is under 5 years of age in which case you are entitled to factory warranty service.
This one sounds just like a refrigeration problem.
If the freon leaked out then it will definitely do this...
I would recommend to get a new freezer here's why.
if you call someone to put the freon back in it will cost you anywhere from $80 to $150. it will freeze and work good but eventually it will go back to the same problem because the tech did not fix it only put it back in... its just a matter of time then you have the same problem... save your money and move it to a new one...
It could be an area where the tubing is vibrating against the cabinet or it's touching other tubing. While it's running you can run your hand along the tubing and when you get to the vibrating area it should stop. You can then slightly move the tubing away from where it's vibrating. Do not bend or kink the tubing.
It could also be a noisy compressor which would be under warranty.
That would depend on the size of the freezer. If it's a compact 5-7 cubic feet, then its not necessarily needed, but if it is a large freezer I would recommend buying the hose adapter. The basic function for the hose adapter is draining the water after defrosting the freezer.
So if it's a large freezer that will not be moved, then YES by all means, you need the adapter.
these frigidaire made freezers are notorious for having restrictions in the sealed systems that will cause exactly what your describing.
what happens is oil moves around in the freon system and pools up in the capillary tubes and the freon is not able to flow properly. if the unit is under 5 yrs old then should be inwarranty to sears. if its over 5 then probably cheaper to purchase a new one..
