Good day,
If it's running, there is little else you can do. Unlike a refrigerator, all of the refrigeration lines are bonded to the inside of the cabinet walls. They can give out sometimes with the littlest twist or movement.
Unless you can see a line that is exposed going to the compressor damaged, then nothing can be done. Recharging is out of the question since it will simply leak out.

Sorry for the bad news.

Woods chest freezer when top is lift light comes on but the wire hook up broke


You can put the wires back together by twisting stripped ends together and sealing the repaired spot with "Heat shrink tubing". Most hardware stores carry the tubing (or can help you to find some). Put the tubing on one of the ends, twist them together good and tight, bend the wire flat against either wire, move the tubing down over it and heat with a lighter to shrink it. Get the right size so it shrinks tight for a good seal. Make it long enough to extend an inch or so past the twisted wires on both sides. If the wiring can't be repaired for some reason, an exact replacement would need to come the manufacturer. If regular lamp cord will work, the hardware store should have that too. If you need to pull a new wire through the insulation, let me know. I can give you a tip or two to make it easier. Good luck.

I have deep freezer chest that does not freeze but when you plug it in you can hear it click on but will not get cold at all has been unplugged for a few years but stored in a dry building


If it doesn't get cold at all, then your compressor is not running. Which could be the start relay or start capacitor or even the compressor. The relay and capacitor are not that expensive and pretty easy to replace, but if it is the compressor then you might not want to put that much money into an older unit.

Does the kenmore cold spot chest freeze model 253.8193610 have a defrost timer


Chest freezers don't normally self defrost. They just freeze. To defrost them, you must shut them off.

Freezer is freezing but the outer wall are extremly hot


This is a normal condition.  The condensor coils are in the cabinet and their job is to remove heat which is why it is hot.  You will want to make sure the freezer isn't in a tight spot where air from the room can't flow across it.  Without good air flow it will become too hot and not cool properly and lead to the compressor failing too soon.
