Question about GE 5 cu. ft. / 142 liter Chest Freezer FCM5SMWH
I just bought this freezer from a friend of mine and when they brought it to me it was cold because they had just unplugged it and brought it over to my house. I went and checked on it the next day and it was warm and I am not able to get it to come on, I know the outlet I have it plugged into works because I checked it. Please help!

A chest freezer is a very simple machine. There are no fans or defrost system to cause a problem.
You need to make sure the thermostat is not turning off to soon.
If the compressor is running but it does not cool, then there is a problem with the refrigerant system.
You will want to check around with some local repair services, but about the cheapest you would have it repaired will be around $250. That is if it can be repaired at all. The majority of the refrigerant lines are inside the cabinet and unrepairable.
Post back if you have any questions.

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.
