Question about Danby 3.6 cu. ft. / 102 liter Chest Freezer Millenium DCF401W
Freezer doesn't freeze anymore. Runs like a refrigerator. Do I need coolant? Where to add it? Where do I get it?
On a chest freezer , the coils are located inside the walls of the freezer . The heat normally felt on the outside is the condensor coils inside the wall. The coldness felt on the inside is from the evaporator coils also inside the freezer wall .If the inside of the freezer has over 1/2 inch of frost , then defrosting may work . If NO frost on the inside , possible leak in the coils which are not accessable . Only solution is to replace the freezer . Anyone can buy refrigerant 134a which is what your freezer uses .

Unless you have a refrigeration license, you can't buy refrigerant. Most systems are sealed systems from the factory. If it gets worse, you may have a leak. Most likely, one or both of the coils,evaporator and condenser are dirty or clogged. Check them, clean them and see how it works then.

Testimonial: "I won't know how helpful until I try to find the condenser and coils. I'm really not stupid, just an old lady who is not a repairman. I did call one serviceman and he told me throw it out and buy a new one, because repairs would cost more than the freezer is worth, but I don't like to throw stuff out that is still running. More later."
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
