Question about Frigidaire 19.7 cu. ft. Chest Freezer GLFC2027F
Here is the link to the original owners manual:
I looked over the manual and here is what I have found:
Freezer external surface
temperature is warm.
* The external freezer walls can be
as much as 30ºF warmer than room
* This is normal while the compressor works to transfer
heat from inside the freezer cabinet.

Hello Robert - From what you have described, it seems like you may be referring to the perimeter hot tube. It is normal to be warm to the touch; however, since it may feel hot to you, I would suggest verifying that you have the proper clearances around the refrigerator. You can refer to your owner's guide for those specifications. If you do not have an owner's guide, you can download one at the manufacturer site. If the clearance is fine, you may need to clean the condenser coils. As part of routine maintenance, you can remove the toe grille (located at the foot of your refrigerator) by unsnapping the sides and lifting outward towards you. Now, using an extended vacuum attachement and condenser cleaning brush, remove dust buildup from condenser coils on left side underneath refrigerator. Cleaning condenser coils typically resolves this issue. But, if clearance is fine and the condenser coils are free from dust and you are still feeling too much exterior heat, you may need to check with a local service tech to determine what else could be causing this issue.

Hi - Typically freezers are not recommended to be located outside because if the garage temperature is above 100 degrees, it will have difficulties performing optimally due to un-circulating air. Some manufacturers have garage kit design to help with this issue. It is design to solely be used during the winter to provide heat to the coils which trigger the compressor to come on. During the summer months, generally it is not needed.
When was the last time you cleaned the condensers? You may do so by removing the toe grille and use extended vacuum attachment and condenser cleaning brush to remove dust buildup from condenser coils usually located on the left side underneath. If you hear the compressor running and if it is providing warm air then that means it is operating correctly and the sealed system is removing heat from the cabinet. Fan motor/evaporator may be the primary issue. However, if you do not hear the compressor and the unit is blowing room temperature then the unit may possibly have a sealed system leak, faulty compressor or overload relay. Contact a professional to move forward accurately from this point.
