Question about Kelvinator 12 cu. ft. / 340 liter Chest Freezer KDC-47

Kelvinator chest freezer not freezing

We have an older model Kelvinator chest freezer that will keep things very cold... but it won't freeze anything. My "handyman" (aka: husband) has no idea how to fix freezers and will not let me call a real handyman. Meanwhile, he keeps "testing" the freezer and defrosting all of our meat. 
I am wondering if it is not freezing food because we do not have enough food in there. It is a really huge freezer.... probably fit 3 or 4 bodies. Could that be the problem??

I need the owners manual for the estate chest freezer model no. tcf1510ew00, or if someone could just tell me the temp settings for each number? it shows on the side that 4 is i guess the freezing point...


The numbers are generic and don't mean a thing. They are there to make you feel like you have control. Anything under 1 should be very much frozen. If it is not then you have T-stat problem and should address that. Chest freezers run at -25f on average if the freezer has enough product in it. The more food in the freezer the better and more efficiently it will run.

My Avanti CF142 chest freezer won't work on normal setting. It will work on Quick freeze so I know the compressor is good. Any ideas why it won't work on normal setting. The green light won&


Sounds like your control switch is going bad. Good thing you have the quick freeze button. You may want to go ahead and replace it. The whole thing will go out soon. This is something you can replace yourself.

I cleaned my freezer and now it won't freeze


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!

How does the control panel work? low numbers warm etc?? I inherited my partners mothers fridge freezer, unfortunatly it didn't include the instrution book,I have had it running on number 2 but it seems to...


Typically the larger the number the colder the setting. Is there an arrow on the knob that points to the left or right that says "warmer" or "colder" I also question your comment "freeze too much" because this is a freezer only, it will not keep things "cool" if you turn it up enough. If you mean there is frost on everything that is humidity and not the freezers fault.

Would a bad thermostat cause my danby to not completely freeze?


Should operate 24 hours before putting anything in that is not already frozen. Check it again after it has run for 24 hours. Anytime you adjust the thermostat go one click at a time and wait 24 hours for it to stabilize.
