Did it reach the desired temperature before it Quit. If so then it does not need to run until the temperture drops several degrees below setting.

If water drains out, then there is always a blockage somewhere on drain line.

Defrost the unit completely to get rid of ice building inside drain lines.

If that does not work , then the drain line must be unlocked using a flexible shaft.

I would plug it into a different plug in - not one that is on the same circuit that it is plugged into now. If the plug in is working for other things, it still may be bad and not able to handle the load of the freezer. If your freezer will not work on a completely different circuit, then there could be something wrong with the freezer, but it is not likely since two of them should not be bad. Seems to me more like an electrical problem in your location. Hope this helps you, Rick

There are numerous methods to defrost freezers, from placing buckets of hot water inside to using hair blowers. I like to unplug freezer, unload freezer, use a plastic putty knife to scrape excess frost off walls if in a bit of a hurry, and to let it just thaw out, using the drain port in the bottom of the freezer, hooked up to the garden hose adapter that came with the freezer to run the water to a drain.

The chest freezers are a bit more reliable than an upright (in my opinion) and are more energy efficient, but do make it harder to find and organize items in the freezer. FYI: Virtually any brand name freezer on the market in the US was built by either Frigidaire in St. Cloud, MN, W.C. Woods Co., from Canada, or Haier Co. in China.

I would try defrosting first. If no difference, or worse then you may have a refrigerant leak. You could always try setting back to the original setting. Hope this helps.

The 6 or7 may be a setting number or a degree readout, which is a little on the warm side, should be around a -10 to-15.
Consult your users manual for details ,.Does not sound like an emergency, but keep monitoring it'

Gaskets can cause this, along with internal fans getting bad or iced over. Other answers might indicate a leak of freon.

GE Freezers | Answered on Sep 29, 2017


the users manual does not cover this particular issue as to the temperature swing. I have seen some thermostats that are the "constant on" type that you are describing. No way of telling from the vague manual. As long as you are not storing ice cream for a long period of time, 0 degrees is usually fine for most home applications. Sorry I can not give you more info.

Make sure the electricity is connected. Check the start capacitor - check for the compressor running.

Have you tested the wall socket for power, do that first.
