You will have to get a service tech that can diagnose why it’s not cooling properly

SOURCE: chest freezer

do you have voltage at the compressor? if not you have an open circuit or bad t-stat. if voltage is present and compressor is not running you have a bad start device or bad compessor. if voltage present and compressor runs you have a refrigeration issue get a new freezer.

SOURCE: freezer not freezing

it would apear the stat is the fault. the thermostat is monitoring the temperature of the inner liner and tubing. if the compresor isnt actuly staying on the only part controling it is the stat. if you have the knoledge i would sugest you bypass the contol with the unit unpluged and the plug it in to conferm the fault was the control. p/s you may have a friend who has some knoledge . the control is a simple switch. just enshure the unit is unpluged. hope this helped

The top half of the freezer does not work


I have a Scandinova chest freezer and the left hand side froze, but not the right side, because the compressor in the box under the right side of the freezer was getting so hot, a small amount of heat was conducting back through into the right side of the freezer and preventing anything on that side from freezing!
I solved this problem by running the compressor outside of the of the freezer box, by taking the air vent off, unbolting the compressor and then pulling out by about 20cm and running it from there.

I have a GE chest freezer and the exterior green light has started flashing. The freezer is less than a year old.


Is this just a "Power-on" light to let you know it's plugged in and has power? This is probably just a "neon" (although the actual gas inside is hydrogen for the green color) bulb and sometimes they will do the flickering thing literally forever. In a way it's a good thing as it makes you look at it. If it really concerns you, or if it is actually a warning that something is going wrong (it should say in the manual, you DO have the manual don't you?) have it fixed under the warranty.
