God day,
Either the refrigerant has leaked out or the compressor isn't pumping properly. If you can put your ear up to the unit and it hums that is the compressor running.
No practical repair possible unless the unit is under 5 years of age in which case you are entitled to factory warranty service.

How tofind out if your chest freezer is stuck onn defrost mode


If its in defrost mode it will get warm and the frost will melt. People usually just unplug them. Tge compressor usually has a switch or temp knob. It may be in back by the compressor underneaith. There would be an indicator as to the temp.setting on it. It may not have one at all and may have another issue.

I have a kenmore upright freezer and can't remember which setting it should be on. It has coldest 1 2 3 etc.


I keep min two notches from the coldest setting.A great way to check where you should set yous,is ice cream.Put an open container of ice cream in the freezer,and turn the freezer to coldest.The next day try to scoop the ice cream.If the ice cream is hard the freezer is too cold.Adjust the freezer two notches ,and try the ice cream the next day.Repeat till you are happy with the hardness of the ice cream.It should be easy to scoop but not too soft.

Freezer has quit freezing only a little over a year old. manufactor date 6/2009 compressor is running will only cool down to 50 degrees thermostat set on coldest.


Is the compressor continually running? If so then there could be a leak in the system or the compressor is damaged. If it's running then stopping, the cold control (thermostat) could be damaged.

Running High @ -10 C and should run at -20 C on coldest setting


1. Make sure the sealing gasket is making good contact all the way around. It's pretty easy to lose 10 degrees. If it is a magnetic seal on the door gasket, it may not be sealing all the way around.

2. If it is staying that cold, everything is working well enough. Maybe you need a little gas in the compressor. Time for the service guy.

By the way, is your unit speced to be that cold full of supplies? Is the door opened frequently? minus 35 is pretty cold.

Not Freezing, but cold


The thermostat should be a close circuit when requesting cold temps. or when asking the compressor to come on. The exterior surface on some freezers warm when asking for cold inside. Yours has a condenser coil on the back and that should warm when cooling. If compressor is runningit should be wrm if no freon has leaked from freezer somewhere.
The defrost timer should rotate clockwise during the day and give approx. 3 defrost daily or about every 8 hours. Until the thermostat is resolved and asks for a closed circuit the compressor will not come on. Unplug freezer from outlet,remove thermostat wires, then turn the thermostat to its coldest setting and check again. If no closed circuit the thermostat will need replaced first. Hope this has helped you, Sea Breeze
