Question about Freezers
These models have a spring built into the hinges. You can remove a hinge and take the spring out and try a local hardware store or online @ Graingers
Because replacement parts are hard to find for these I have seen folks us the hydraulic hatchback shocks to assist in opening the lids and holding them open. Other have just made a prop rod similar to a car hood support.
Sorry I couldn't give you a direct link to replacement parts, But I tried my best to find these springs.
Best of luck!

Remove the panel covering the compressor. Remove the relay plugged on the side of the compressor and shake it. If it rattles or has any burned spots it is shorted out. Try replacing it first. Make sure you replace it with the correct replacement, not a fit-all. If this is not the problem you will need to replace the compressor. If it is less than 5 yrs old the compressor should still be in warranty. If so call Sears, it will be repaired free of charge. If it is out of warranty buy a new freezer.

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: freezer not freezing
it would apear the stat is the fault. the thermostat is monitoring the temperature of the inner liner and tubing. if the compresor isnt actuly staying on the only part controling it is the stat. if you have the knoledge i would sugest you bypass the contol with the unit unpluged and the plug it in to conferm the fault was the control. p/s you may have a friend who has some knoledge . the control is a simple switch. just enshure the unit is unpluged. hope this helped
