The reason this happens is because the defrost timer is not turning back on when it needs to, causing the freezer to thou out and overfill the drip tray sitting on top of the compressor. A new defrost timer should be available from the local refrigeration wholesalers in your area.

FYI: As far as I know, there is no defrost timer. Like many similar sized models, this GE chest freezer is a manual defrost design. Typically, larger or upright models have an auto defrost or frost free feature.
Suggestion: Perhaps the floor-mounted drain plug is not forming a tight seal and the heat around the area is just enough to cause water to liquify and drip out.

The insulation between the inside and the outside of the freezer haas become water logged, This can be twmporarilly remedied by switching off the freezer and letting the insulation dry out for a few weeks, less in hot dry climates, but the solution is temporary and the problem will reoccur. To have the foam replaced means a complete strip down of the freezer and is seldom worth the cost. I am sorry, but you will probably have to get used to living with the problem. Incidently, it does make inroads into your electricity bills.

I need to replace my thermostat on my ge chest freezer model #fcm7sudww, I lost the wiring diagram and I need help to rewire. Thanks

Wiring diagram of the chest freezer turned into chest fridge. The junction box is not required if all connections are made inside the fridge service compartment. Active (A) connection passes via latching relay terminals
inside the thermostat.

Additional information can find HERE.

Hope helps; tell us news.

Can I Mount Casters with Screws into Bottom of Chest Freezer?


youyr best bet would be to build a frame that the casters are welded to and there are no holes in the outer shell of the freezer. some L shaped angle would work nicely for this application and then there would be plenty of support for when the freezer is loaded up with product. Be sure that teo of the casters are lockable and two in the swivel freely.
