This answer was rated:

I got my parents Signature frostless freezer which ran great, then they decided to un plug it, cleaned it out and let it sit for about 10 years. I took it to my house and was told to let it sit for a couple of days because of transporting it on its side. After 2 days, I pluged it in, turned it on, and after 48 hours, it does not even feel cool. you can feel the fan, but nothing. Thanks, George.

yes it does

 

Ok the problem is after sitting for so long the internal metal lines have corroded and they now have a hole in them. So this means the refrigerant has leaked out.

what should I do and will it be worth the cost to repair it
Unfortunately it is now garbage. The internal lines are non repairable because they can not be accessed for repair.
