Whirlpool freezer

Resolved Question:

I left overnight and when I got back the upright freezer door had been open for a day or two. The bottom shelves were still somewhat frozen but the top is thawn. Is there a reset as I can't seem to get it going. I only have slight hum and the freon ball is very warm.

is the fan inside running? this is only a year old? is the humming comming from compressor? look at you owners manual and see what the warranty is on the sealed system. let me know , if its five years you dont want to attempt to repair yourself because it will void warranty, let me know Bryan
