Coolant is leaking (because it is probably old), so you might want to get a repair person to get some more coolant, or you could just buy a new Freezer.

Temp display reads 92 (hi temp) but the interior temp is 0.


No. Sounds like the intern temp sensor is bad, missing, or not connected. 92 is probably the max reading it can display. The unit will probably operate continuously, be much to cold, and cost a ton to operate. I assume you bought this from Sears. Call them to replace the freezer. Should be no problem.

My magic chef freezer will freeze for a day and then the temperature will increase to 70 degrees. The freezer is just two years old. Is it worth having someone to come out and look at it or is it...


This is a manual defrosting freezer so the most likely cause is the temp control. Sad that is is only 2 years old but the temp control is not working correctly.

It sure sounds like it is running until it cycles off at the "I reached the cold enough" SET TEMP then never starting up again. That start up is controlled by the temp control. Call and make SURE the temp control is called the thermostat!

    GE TBX21ji Refridgerator/Freezer Factory Icemaker quit making ice


    Normally, when the temp of the icemaker gets to about 14 degrees F, the icemaker goes into the harvest mode, turning on the mold heater and attempting to eject the cubes. When the heater has warmed the mold sufficiently to release the cubes, the ejector can continue and push out the cubes, then the icemaker fills with fresh water to beging to make a batch of ice again. Manually starting the cycle as you have done only allows the cycle to start without the temp sensor seeing the 14 degrees. The mold heating generally takes a couple minutes. If your mold heater or the temp sensor are not working, you will have to replace the icemaker, as they are not available as a repair parts.

    After freezer was moved not getting cold


    Unplug the unit and leave it undisturbed for 24 hours. Plug the unit back in again and see if it will come to temp.

    Freezer Temp Alarm


    Temp alarm come on, yet temp (fan blowing and cold air) working. Turn the temp control just a notch up and immediately the temp lite goes out. Later it will start up again. It seems the freezer is working fine, just the temp moritoring system is malfuncting.

    GE upright freezer


    If this is a frost free model the fan could be bad. If not frost free it is probably low on freon. I don't recomment fixing this as you can never really trust the freezer again. Most of the time the leak can't be found and adding freon is only a temp solution.

    Loud buzzing noise


    IF YOUR FREEZER HAS A TEMP ALARM, USUALLY LOCATED IN FRONT,BOTTOM, RIGHT CORNER, THE TEMP IS PROBABLY ABOVE THE SAFE TEMP FOR FREEZERS, (10 DEGREES) AND SO THE ALARM WILL SOUND.

    THERE SHOULD BE A SWITCH IN FRONT TO SHUT OFF THE ALARM UNTIL THE TEMP GETS BACK DOWN TO ZERO. THEN YOU CAN TURN THE ALARM BACK ON.

    IF YOU PLUG IN THE FREEZER AND TURN IT ON, IT SHOULD BE BACK DOWN TO NORMAL TEMP (IF IT IS EMPTY) IN ABOUT 24 HOURS. IF IT ISN'T, YOU HAVE OTHER PROBLEMS. CHECK TO BE SURE THE COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING.
