SOURCE: GOT A RED LIGHT ON
The red light just means that it is more than 8 deg f above its setpoint. If you turned it on a day ago then left it empty before refilling it with frozen food then the light should have gone out.
The thermostat should be set for 0 deg f or between 3 and 4 on the dial. If it is set too low then it may not reach temperature. Also check that it is not in too warm an area and that it is at least 2 inches clear of anything else all the way round.
Some chest freezers have a fan cooled condenser near the compressor, please check this to make sure the fan is working and that the condenser is not covered with dust, if it is clean with a soft brush and vacuum cleaner.

First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
