When you say "cleaned", did you defrost it? And. if so, could you have damaged the internal lining? Often the coil inside the wall of a chest freezer can fracture if hit or stabbed at during defrosting.
Other than that, is the compressor running (you would hear it)? it may have overheated. If not running, see if it feels hot (siezed) or cold (no power from thermostat). If cold, put it on fast freeze and see if it kicks into life (thermostat faulty) or not (compressor fault, time for a new freezer!)
Let me know how you get on!

Hello,

The first thing I would do is to check the compressor and the condenser fan. Remove the cover on the back of the fridge and check how hot is the compressor? Is the condenser fan turning well? Also check the condenser coil under the fridge, it is very possible it needs cleaning.
If the condenser fan is not working properly then it has to be replaced.
If the condenser fan motor is fine and the cleaning did not help then the sealed system is low on Freon and in such case you need a certified technician to fix a leak and to charge the system.
Good luck in solving the problem...

the noise you are hearing is probably the starting relay on the compressor failing and causing the overload protector to cut the power off to the compressor. Try replacing the overload and starting relay.

Sounds like you have a bad compressor. If you can check the amp draw.

However this will take long so you use a straight screwdriver or something like a chisel to remove as much scale as possible before leave it in solutions.

The ice build up is related from the time keep the door open and the humidity that is in the air. So the time is variable. Sometimes if the door is not sealed closed the ice is build up very fast.

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.
