Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer2_bing.gif and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

I got delivery today for the same freezer and had the same question.
I just called GE's customer service number (800-626-2005) and the agent told me that GE uses this button panel (which has the green on/off light switch, the two white switches, and the round control dial) for all or most of its freezers. But the buttons do not do anything on the 5 cubic foot chest freezer. They are not connected to anything and are non-active buttons. On other freezer models above this one, the two switches serve a purpose, but not the 5CF model. This is a simple, inexpensive freezer and it doesn't have bells and whistles--but it does have the same control panel as the multi-feature freezers. Hope that helps.

if the box has mold between the seal and liner the the seal isn't the main problem, the main problem is the liner is bad and by time you got both parts if you can it would cost more than to replace the freezer.

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.
