Question about Magic Chef Chest Freezer MCCF5WBX
As a do it yourselfer you will not have the tools, knowledge or experience to check the precise amount of refrigerant. You would have to recover the refrigerant into a recovery bag to weigh the amount. However, if you put an ampmeter around the lead going to the common terminal of the compressor, you can determine if in fact the compressor itself is running, or trying to start itself. If it is running, yet not cooling enough or at all, you likely do have a leak of refrigerant, and to properly repair your freezer would be very expensive.

Let me know if the compressor is hot and we will know the compressor is trying to start but cannot. Replacing these parts will possibly solve the problem of your freezer being on but not freezing everything, We need to make sure the compressor is running, Thanks Sea Breeze

ice cream is always the last to freeze and a temp of minus -10 degrees is usually required to get it to get hard. if you put the ice cream in the door it will be especially tough to freeze. a good thermometor is a good investment as you can observe the temps. usually ten degrees or 20 degrees is what they run. yes they do cycle on and off as long as they hold temps thats good. the outside of the freezer gets warm because the hot compressed refrigerant is spread through piping near its surface giving up its heat of compression . setting the stat to max will freeze the ice cream eventually but utility bill suffers . good luck
