Repairman1981 :

Listen for the compressor clicking, I would plug in and see if you hear any compressor noises from the machine compartment. If you do not then you should pull the back wall in the freezer and look at the frost pattern on the coils

Repairman1981 :

Should be fully frosted in less than 10 mins if you don't have a problem, if the compressor isn't clicking you just have a freon issue, if you do hear clicking the compressor could be bad in addition to a freon issue. Thanks!
