I put a cup of water in the freezer. It took over a day to full freeze. A few days letter it melted and barely refreezes. What can be wrong and how would I fix the fridge?

Hi,

We need to know what the temperature is in the freezer, you can buy a inexpensive freezer thermostat at any store, get the liquid or digital type.

Observations needed

A few days letter it melted and barely refreezes.
Has it ever worked well? How long have you used it?

Can you hear the compressor at the rear running?

Frost should form uniformly on the surface of the freezer compartment when the compressor has been running. Is the freezer compartment frosting? (Frosting on only part of it is a sign of a particular problem.)
