I not 100% sure but believe this is the power light so it should remain on when the freezer calls for cooling and go off when satisfied. If the chest wont stay cold then it sounds like the stat is gone. If it is digital, there may be a power card issue but most chest freezers are run on a standard thermostat with the capillary running up into the base of the unit.
same as last post... I not 100% sure but believe this is the power light so it should remain on when the freezer calls for cooling and go off when satisfied. If the chest wont stay cold then it sounds like the stat is gone.

Chest freezers produce cold very slowly, so it could be an hour or more before you start to feel the cold. If still no cold, ( and I mean absolutley no cold) then you most likely have adamaged refrigerant line and the (freon) refrigerant has been lost. Take it back, or call for warranty repair.
It may be just coincidental but it may need a recharge; most cooling systems eventually leak and if it has been standing in a hot area, this may have accelerated the loss.
Get an estimate before having anyone come since the cost may be higher than the freezer's current value.
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.
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.
