There coud be many possiblity:
check wheather the compressor is getting current or not.
check the running amper of the compressor with a multi meter.
the reading must be 0.6 to 1.1 if it is coming above 1.1 to 4.2 than your starter have the problem. if it is showing 4.6 or above than its time to replace your compressor..................have a nice day :-)

Chest freezer model mfco5mobw4 been plugg in for 2 days now set on the coldest setting not getting cold compressor is warm


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.

The front surface of the chest freezer is


Hi, can you put your hands on front of freezer, and check from 1 to 5 without getting burn? how long can you keep your hands on front of freezer? check from 1 to 20 and let me know, normally there's a condensate line, or part of condenser lines that passes through freezer body , purpose of those condensate line is to prevent your door gasket from freezing , especially during winter. It's normal for front of freezer to be warmed, on hot days it will be a little hotter, you said "very hot" makes me wonder how hot it is, put your hands on front of freezer, use number method and let me know, but it's normal. good luck.

Freezer stops and start


ice cream is always the last to freeze and a temp of minus -10 degrees is usually required to get it to get hard. if you put the ice cream in the door it will be especially tough to freeze. a good thermometor is a good investment as you can observe the temps. usually ten degrees or 20 degrees is what they run. yes they do cycle on and off as long as they hold temps thats good. the outside of the freezer gets warm because the hot compressed refrigerant is spread through piping near its surface giving up its heat of compression . setting the stat to max will freeze the ice cream eventually but utility bill suffers . good luck
