My chest freezer has not been used for some years. When I turn it on, it does not get cold. What might the problem be? Might it need gas?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model? And have you checked the settings recently?

Model: F&PH160SRWHV812. Is that right? Sounds long for a model. Adjusting the setting did not seem to help.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I cannot think of anything.
