Question about GE Freezer Â 14.8 Cu. Ft. Manual Defrost Chest Freezer
Hello I have a GE 14cuft chest freezer 6 yrs old.Recently it would warm to 20 degrees F even set to the highest setting. I replaced thermostat and it cooled to -10 but within a few days it was back to +20. It seems to keep running drawing 60-70 watts.If I unplug it and wait a few hours before plugging it back in it again gets cold (down below 0 ) but eventually returns to 15-20 degrees.Any help would be appreciated.

Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.

SOURCE: Chest freezer - hose adaptor?
That would depend on the size of the freezer. If it's a compact 5-7 cubic feet, then its not necessarily needed, but if it is a large freezer I would recommend buying the hose adapter. The basic function for the hose adapter is draining the water after defrosting the freezer.
So if it's a large freezer that will not be moved, then YES by all means, you need the adapter.

youyr best bet would be to build a frame that the casters are welded to and there are no holes in the outer shell of the freezer. some L shaped angle would work nicely for this application and then there would be plenty of support for when the freezer is loaded up with product. Be sure that teo of the casters are lockable and two in the swivel freely.

SOURCE: GE chest freeze won't get cold
the noise your hearing indicates the possibility of a bad start relay on the comp or possibly it just came loose during the move. on the side of the compressor you will see 2-3 wires running into an electrical connection reseat this first. if still no operation replace teh relay. you can purchase thru any reputable appliance parts dealer. after replacing the relay if you have no operation then likely problem is seized comp.
domestic freezers do not have low pressure switches that indicate low freon charge.
