I would have to say yes if you can not do the repairs yourself. "some" not all parts have been discontinued and no replacements have been sugested.

Will 3.74cu.ft. freezer hold 95lb of food?


Hi Trish:
1 cubic foot of water weighs 62.4 pounds so if you had 3.74 cubic feet of water (not frozen) it would weigh just over 233 pounds.
Most of the frozen veggies you put in a freezer have air space and the specific gravity (weight per cubic foot) is quite a bit less than water. Meats are closer to the same weight per cubic foot as water, but you still have air spaces between the packages.
I'd guess that you could get 95 lbs of food in it but you would have to pack it very carefully.

Sounds like your control switch is going bad. Good thing you have the quick freeze button. You may want to go ahead and replace it. The whole thing will go out soon. This is something you can replace yourself.

Well a freezer is easy to repair. The circuit goes from one side of the power cord to the cold control and down to the compressor then out to the other side of the power cord. Id the control or compressor relay is open then she won't freeze. All the parts to it are listed HERE.
From the list I see an overload for the compressor. If that one is open it won't freeze. Bypass the temp control wires to see if she runs.

I'd let it dry out totally then try it again, some of the electronics may have gotten wet when you defrosted it. Give it a week somewhere warm and dry like a garage. If you didn't attack built up ice in the freezer with a knife while defrosting it it should work after it dries out. Most people end up killing freezers by accidently poking holes in the evap coil while trying to remove built up ice.

Yes it does. It will have to be blowing inside so look in there. You will have to take the cover off.
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work

Am I supposed to turn off the quick freeze once the deep freezer is cold?


http://www.mcappliance.com/document/MCCF5WBX.pdf
i read the entire manual and even type in the words "quick freeze" in pdf. find space and it is not in there.
heres the link read it for yourself
it only mentions green light and red light.
The “POWER” light (Green) indicates that the freezer is properly connected to the electrical power.
The “RUN” light (Red) will not illuminate when the unit is operating below freezing.
The “RUN” light will illuminate when the temperature inside the unit increases above freezing. Please
be advised that the “RUN” light may come on for a period of time when the lid is opened, when new
items are stored inside the unit or when the lid is forced open by irregular contents.
Do not call for service unless the “RUN” light has remained on for 6 hours or more. If this light stays
on continuously for a period of 6 hours, please contact our Customer Service Dept. to consult with a
representative at 888 775-0202 or visit our website to request warranty service at www.magicchefewave.

My deep freeze outside will not stay cold.


a freezer is just a heat pump . from inside the freezer to the garage . the first law of thermodynamics says heat travels from a hotter to a colder surface . it could just be the cold how much are we talking?
