Thanks for your reply. Prior to my first post I had my wife turn the freezer off. It was off for approximately 24 hrs. She turned it back on late yesterday and it now is freezing. What could of happened, and might it now be OK? Could the coils of plugged and are now clear or something?

It could have been a defrost problem.
The evaporator coils in the freezer become heavily iced/frosted over so that the evaporator fan cannot pull air through them to cool it.

Could also have been a compressor problem re: overheating.
And turning it off let the compressor cool down.

May even have been a sticking thermostat.

Did everything sound normal re: was the compressor running or was it clicking on/off or was it off?

Clicking would point to a compressor problem.

If the compressor was off, then a bad thermostat jumps to the top of the list.

If the compressor was running then I would suspect a defrost problem.

It is actually too bad that the unit was unplugged as you could not do any troubleshooting.
