remove the panel at the reaar of the freezer. you should have a full frost pattern on your evaporator (frosted not snow packed) and the fan should be running. if you do not have a full frost pattern then you have a sealed system leak. covered under the first five years of your warranty

They started putting evap fans in refers in the '60s. Is this one frost free, or do you have to defrost it?
If it's frost free, 99.99% chance it has a fan.
And get ready for that ice to melt, slowly. Freezers should be between 0 and 10 degrees F, refer's at 40-45 degrees F (sorry, my mind is not doing the conversions to night. Too much wine.). At .5 C, ice will melt.
I am going to bet either a fan is not running, the condensor fan is not running, the condensor is plugged with 30-40 years of dust/dirt, and last but not least, slightly low on R-12 (yes, one of the bad guy refrigerants.).
Let me know what you find.
And if there is more of the model number than you have given, please do. I might be aboe to look at a breakdown for it, tell you if it has that fan.

Hih, Check and see if something has stopped the condenser fan motor down by the compressor from turning. Sometimes this happens in a move.
Also make sure the controls didn't get turned to wrong settings. Make sure evaporator fan motor is working in freezer and that there is no frost building up on the rear panel.
Just some ideas to help you.
lease let me know if I can assist you further.

Hwne you had moved the fridge it is quite possible that there could have been a damge to the compressor or the piping resulting in the gas leaking off. This must be confirmed , if so refill gas properly with the help of a technician. Next solution also could be if the fridge had been been transported upside down or side ways. If so the oil inthe compressor would have gone into the system and choked it. For a trial put off the fridge for about 24 hours so that all the oil drains back to base. then test it to check if the cooling comes back. Since I presume prior to your moving the fridge was working fine, the areas of fault could be these two factors. I hope you can check this up and decide . If not ask for a quote on the fault and we can review. I Hope I could help. Good day

Testimonial: "Indeed it was not transported on its side, it appears the pressure is down and we can hope for a small leak which will give me 2 years. thank you"
