SOURCE: Freezer is freezing but the outer wall are extremly hot

This is a normal condition.  The condensor coils are in the cabinet and their job is to remove heat which is why it is hot.  You will want to make sure the freezer isn't in a tight spot where air from the room can't flow across it.  Without good air flow it will become too hot and not cool properly and lead to the compressor failing too soon.

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

SOURCE: 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

Ambient temperature


This is true of all HVAC type systems. The condensor releases heat from the expansion of the coolant. As long as the temperature is lower than the exchanged heat then there is no impact to efficiency.

Lost owners manual


You only require fast freeze if you are using the freezer for the first time, after a defrost, or if you add a large quantity of fresh food to an already running freezer. Most freezers require about eight hours at fast freeze. As to the temperature setting I would suggest you purchase a purpose built freezer thermometer (very cheap) and place that on top of the food. With the thermostat control set mid way (about 3 or 4) check the thermometer occasionally see what the temperature reads. It should be around -18C, if it's lower then set the thermostat lower at 2-3, if its higher set the thermostat higher at 4-5. Repeat this until the freezer temperature is correct.

Am I supposed to turn off the quick freeze once the deep freezer is cold?


http://www.mcappliance.com/document/MCCF5WBX.pdf
i read the entire manual and even type in the words "quick freeze" in pdf. find space and it is not in there.
heres the link read it for yourself
it only mentions green light and red light.
The “POWER” light (Green) indicates that the freezer is properly connected to the electrical power.
The “RUN” light (Red) will not illuminate when the unit is operating below freezing.
The “RUN” light will illuminate when the temperature inside the unit increases above freezing. Please
be advised that the “RUN” light may come on for a period of time when the lid is opened, when new
items are stored inside the unit or when the lid is forced open by irregular contents.
Do not call for service unless the “RUN” light has remained on for 6 hours or more. If this light stays
on continuously for a period of 6 hours, please contact our Customer Service Dept. to consult with a
representative at 888 775-0202 or visit our website to request warranty service at www.magicchefewave.

My wife and I bought a Kenmore chest freezer (14.8 cubic foot) about 6 weeks ago. It is made by Frigidaire for Sears, and the model number is #253.165.42105, serial # WB94341279. It has been working OK. ...


This is well with in factory specifications. Hot air rises and cold air drops. Because a chest freezer does not have a fan to circulate the air it is normal for the basket to be warmer than the bottom of the freezer. The bottom of the freezer is used for food you want to keep for a longer period of time.What you store in the basket is food you will freeze for a short period of time. Ice cream should not be kept in the basket. As you fill your freezer with food you will find that the temperature will equal out because the frozen food will take up the place of the frozen air which will give you a more stable freezer temperature.
Try your test when you have it full of food.

Freezer not keeping foods frozen


If this freezer is running all of the time and only freezing the walls at the top inside it is a good chance there is deteriation in the piping in the walls eg (rusty pipes) letting the refridgerant escape (common fault) with chest freezers.If it is more than 7 years old it would be advisable to replace it as the repair would probably cost 3 quarters of replacement price.Hope this helps. Kind Regards.
