Danby upright freezer plugged in a few hours ago, but coils on back are hot

If you are talking about the black condenser coli on the back of the fridge it is hot because the refrigerant is pulling all of the heat out of the fridge and trying to deposit it outside of the box. This is called hot box pull down. When the temperature inside the fridge comes down and you have product in it the coil on the back will become much cooler during operation. So if you are wondering it is nothing to be worried about, perfectly normal.

Just a thought i would check if there. Is it possible an ice build up around the fan could be stopping it from turning?

I want to use my freezer for beer. Can I raise the temperature by changing the thermostat? Any other suggestions besides using a fridge?

Not sure of your make/model. If its a standalone freezer you could exchange the termostat with a Fridge, or you could jury rig a seperate line voltage thermostat with probe in the compartment, which you would plug the fridge into and would override the internal thermostat (internal thermostat would always be calling for cooling because the line voltage thermostat would be set higher--any time the temp increased above the set point on the line voltage tstat the relay would close and the freezer would run). An anti freeze alarm coupled to a simple relay or contactor would work for this purpose... depending on how handy you are I could explain all the necessary components...

Go to Home Depot find you a timer they start at $10.00, you know turn lights off/on when your not home. . They have an digital one for about $16.00 Set it up, ck your times, run it then shut it off for a while keep adjusting till you can keep the temp you want.

Fridge and freezer both freezing

If your control is not turned up too high you likely have an insensitive one. In this case it needs to be replaced with a new one, not too serious.

Freezer Not Cooling

Sounds like the low pressure cutout switch is stopping your compressor running, especially if the "5 seconds" you mention are exactly the same length each time. Not enough refrigerant would be the usual cause, but the reason for the refrigerant loss is harder to tie down - possibly a seal or a loose valve seat or even a pinhole in a copper tube. Best solution now would be to get a refrigerator mechanic to top it up and check for leaks - get a quote first to check - 'fridge gas is getting costly. Other possible solution is that the low pressure switch itself is faulty, relatively inexpensive to replace (but unfortunately you will need at least a partial gas recharge on most types of system after) - your fridge gas guy will be able to check very easily if there is adequate gas in the system, and should check this low pressure switch if there is not. Usually this is fixable many times, just check the cost first. Hope this helps :)
