I hope the cooling fluid is not leaking out of the system. When the inside is becoming warmer every day, you can be sure it is. Then check what is bas, replacing the cooling aggregate (it is through the whole freezer) or buying a new one. For household freezers it is better and cheaper to buy a new one, because new freezers use less power. When it is now running 24 hours a day, quick replace it.

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.

Only top section of chest freezer is freezing


Hi
Normally what causes the refrigerator/lower chest not to be cold enough is that the fan that pulls the air from the freezer is not working.
Check to make sure it is working, if not then you will have to replace it.
If it is working then check you defrost timer, it could be faulty.
I will include these two websites for parts.

My kenmore 19.7 cu.ft. chest freezer is not running and the compressor is hot


Place a volt meter set for amp draw around one wire of the compressor. If you do not have a constant amp draw replace the start relay on the compressor.
If you do have a constant amp draw the compressor is bad or you have a refrigerant leak.

The freezer is hot on the outside


Make sure the evaporator coils on the back or underneath near the compressor are clean. If there is a fan near the coils make sure it's running.

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.

The top half of the freezer does not work


I have a Scandinova chest freezer and the left hand side froze, but not the right side, because the compressor in the box under the right side of the freezer was getting so hot, a small amount of heat was conducting back through into the right side of the freezer and preventing anything on that side from freezing!
I solved this problem by running the compressor outside of the of the freezer box, by taking the air vent off, unbolting the compressor and then pulling out by about 20cm and running it from there.

Chest freezer not freezing on bottom


Sounds like a circulation problem. Does it have a fan inside the freezer. Should be bdhind the floor or one of the wall panels. There should be a vent for the air to circulat through. If so check to make sure it's running when the compressor runs.
