A lot of yelling and swearing and two screws usually Philips, two wires on the back of the control and possibly a remote bulb that you will have to rip out and place the new one in the same general area

SOURCE: Maytag chest freezer mac1557aew does not get cold

This can be a number of things, one being a bad compressor/motor.
Does it run at all?
If not, the compressor needs to be looked at.
If you are handy, there may be a wiring schematic in the back to further troubleshoot.
You can trace the wiring from the thermostat to see if there is power at other components.

SOURCE: new chest freezer not getting cold

I am having the same problem. How long did it take?
I bought mine second hand and think it may be broken. I plugged it in 8 hours ago. I can hear it running but it's not cold yet.

SOURCE: red light on not cold enouth

The red light bis indicating that the temp is too high, if you can ,turn the thermostat to a colder setting, if this makes no difference, then you have a serious problem, you will have to call an engineer.

SOURCE: Chest Freezer not freezing

check the temp dial. and set to a lower temp. *be mindful of the surrounding temp of the freezer. it will not work properly if it is in 125 degree surrounding air. * check the coils on the freezer and make sure that they are clean. this allows for proper heat transfer from the inside of the box to the outside air. also check to see if the blower is running. * Check to see if there are signs of oil around the freezer, if so contact a service tech

Where do i find the temperature control?


If your unit has a cold control it would most likely be on the side of the chest freezer near the front bottom. If you can find your complete model number from the tag on the freezer I could find out for you for sure.

Thanks

Temperature


If this unit has a control it would be located on the outer left side in the lower right hand corner. There would be a dial, the higher the number the cooler the temperature. Many of these chest freezers did not have an adjustable control.

Need -20 degrees Celsius...Will this brand get there?


If all is ideal maybe -10 an occationally -15 and this is F considerable coolder than -20C. ALSO fyi a chest freezer will stay at or below these temps better than an upright and especially a self defrosting model. Because a chest freezer you dont loose all the cold air when you open the door. TYhey are not made in auto matic defrost as far as I know (never have seen one but then I havent been looking for one either. An up right freezer can be manual defrost or automatic. but the cold air falls ouit every time the door is opened.

Please let em know if this helps you by giving me as high a mark as you can and thank you for using fixya.
