Good day,
If you can hear it running but does no cooling then either you have lost the refrigerant charge, or the system has developed a restriction somewhere in the lines. It will require the attention of a professional.. If the machine is under 5 years of age, then the factory will cover the repair.
Call your selling dealer for a warranty repair.

Is my defrost timer broken or my thermostat? The freezer was holding -30 temp but now is at +30.


Is the compressor running? If not - the timer could be stuck in defrost mode. If it is ruinning, then the freezer coil should be cold. If it is choked with frost & ice - then the defrost heater isn't getting powered (bad timer or defrost terminator - or is getting powered but has burned out.

You should allow the ice and frost to melt completely before turning back on again. Typically ice and frost don't build up so bad in a few days time to cause the temperature rise you're describing If getting cold - the compressor and refrigerant is likely OK, if not the defrost circuit is suspect. If compressor running but not getting cold - a refrigerant leak / charge level may be causing the problem.

I have this majic chef freezer about 7 cubic ft. 3 years old turned it off to defrost and when turning it back on it won't get cold?? Compresser is hot so I believe it is working and lights on in front...


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.

Doesnt get cold


It may be just coincidental but it may need a recharge; most cooling systems eventually leak and if it has been standing in a hot area, this may have accelerated the loss.
Get an estimate before having anyone come since the cost may be higher than the freezer's current value.

Frezer does not seem to be working in the cold


s it should the ambient temperatures that you said are way to cold to expect the freezer to operate properly. move it indoors and or contact the manufacture and see if the have a kit to put on the unit to work properly.

Freezer


if the unit is a auto defrost sound like a defrosting problem, if not a self defrost and the coils are not covered in thick frost then a sealed system issue would be the problem to check

Can my kenmore chest freezer be in the garage during hot summers and cold winters in Minnesota?


Jeremy,

You can put a fridge/freezer in the garage. Be sure that the area is level so you don't warp the case which will cause sealing problems with the gasket. Also, clean the condenser frequently as dust and dirt will reduce efficiency.
