Good day,
That is totally normal. 24 hours is a good test period, and your model may not have refrigeration coils equally on all sides.
Smart to place a paper cup on the bottom center of the machine, half full of water.
When frozen solid, your good to go.

Chest Freezer Stopped Working 14 years old


The first thing you want to ensure is that power is actually getting into the unit. i suggest that you do that by plugging a night light into the outlet and verify the presence or power. If no power, check your breakers. If power is present note that A chest freezer has only two working parts; the start relay that help the compressor start and a compressor. If you are getting clicking sound, your start relay may be out (inexpensive if you can buy it and install it yourself) or a bad compressor. if you need to call a tech for the repair, you may be able to purchase a new chest freezer that now consume HALF the power and for less than cost of repair.

Hello Ralph Powell - No, it is not normal. Since it was recently purchase, I suggest contacting the store from where it was purchase or the manufacturer directly for procedures on how this issue may be taken care of.

GE 5CF CHEST FREEZER


I got delivery today for the same freezer and had the same question.
I just called GE's customer service number (800-626-2005) and the agent told me that GE uses this button panel (which has the green on/off light switch, the two white switches, and the round control dial) for all or most of its freezers. But the buttons do not do anything on the 5 cubic foot chest freezer. They are not connected to anything and are non-active buttons. On other freezer models above this one, the two switches serve a purpose, but not the 5CF model. This is a simple, inexpensive freezer and it doesn't have bells and whistles--but it does have the same control panel as the multi-feature freezers. Hope that helps.

My brand new freezer wont freeze


I would plug it into a different plug in - not one that is on the same circuit that it is plugged into now. If the plug in is working for other things, it still may be bad and not able to handle the load of the freezer. If your freezer will not work on a completely different circuit, then there could be something wrong with the freezer, but it is not likely since two of them should not be bad. Seems to me more like an electrical problem in your location. Hope this helps you, Rick

How much energy will the old whirlpool model eah22fw 22ft use


The wattage use of the unit should be on a label plate or sticker. With the age of the unit though, it may not be legible anymore. A dryer does use a lot of electricity. Check the freezer to see if the compressor cycles off. If you keep the door shut, it should. If the compressor stays on continuously, that could use a lot of power.
