Hi we have a norfrost chest freezer it is freezing everything but bread on superfreeze when we take it off of superfreeze it defrosted the bread

sounds like the thermostat is at fault or more than likely the refridgerant gas has partially escaped due to a leak, check te seals on the doors first. hope this helps.

I cleaned my freezer and now it won't freeze

When you say "cleaned", did you defrost it? And. if so, could you have damaged the internal lining? Often the coil inside the wall of a chest freezer can fracture if hit or stabbed at during defrosting.
Other than that, is the compressor running (you would hear it)? it may have overheated. If not running, see if it feels hot (siezed) or cold (no power from thermostat). If cold, put it on fast freeze and see if it kicks into life (thermostat faulty) or not (compressor fault, time for a new freezer!)
Let me know how you get on!

Freezer keeps freezing up

Your freezer is freezing up most likely due to a defrost issue whereas either the defrost thermostat, the defrost heater, or the defrost timer or adaptive control has a fault condition. Most of the time this issue is due to a fault with the defrost thermostat due to they are poorly made you would need a multimeter that measures ohms in order to troubleshoot which of these is the issue. You can access the thermostat, and the heater by removing the rear panel in the back of your freezer. If you have any further questions message me back.
Thank you

The refrigerator has frozen on the back side of freezer and has stopped freezing. The other side is not cooling. Ice maker stopped.What is going on?

The frozen on the back side of the freezer is due to your unit haveing a defrost issue where either the defrost thermostat which is the most popular to show a fault in this type of situation, or the defrost heater, or the defrost timer or adaptive control has a fault . If you have a multimeter you can perform and ohms test on the thermostat which should read around .50 or higher and the defrost heater which usually is around 26-28 ohms. If you had a 0 reading then this would tell you which piece has a fault. I will await your reply as to your finds.
Thank you
p.s these parts are located behind that inside rear wall panel which is removeable if you were to see any ice up condition on the evaporator coil this would confirm your defrost issue and you would first use a hair dryer to defrost the evaporator coil of all ice.

Items in the back of the refrigerator freeze.

is this something that has just started happening? Most kenmore top freezers have a vent that allows cold air from the freezer into the refrig through a vent located on the back wall in the center of the refrig section. if packages are pushed up under this vent they can freeze. 

If you have widespread freezing in the refrig setion then a temperature control could be the fault. thanks for using fixya. Peyton..

Fridge is not cooling and now the freezer is not freezing

problem is that the defrost system is not working.
remove back panel inside freezer and you will find pipework is full of ice. melt off carefully with a hairdryer. appliance will now work as this serves as a temporary repair
fault finding is not so easy but check that the defrost heater is not open circuit and check the thermal fuse in series with the heater is ok.
some frostfree are controlled by a simple mechanical timer which can also be faulty. if electronically controlled, you may be looking at a new module. get back to me if you want more help

Freezer not freezing

Check the back wall of the freezer section for signs of frost build-up. If the freezer coil is frozen from a fault in the defrost system your refrigerator will be the first to show signs of not cooling.

Freezer Not Freezing

check compressor is turned on. if compressor is going, you either have a system or compressor fault and this is not diy if compressor not going, possibly a thermostat fault. in this case put on fast freeze to confirm
