Question G.E. Chest Freezer temperature variation (model fcm-15hdma-wh)

I couple months ago I noticed my 15 year old chest freezer, which resides in the garage, was changing its temperature on a regular basis pretty drastically. After placing a thermometer inside to check, the temp range moves anywhere from 10 degrees Fahrenheit to a negative -20 degrees Fahrenheit and anywhere in between.
I don't think this is normal?
Does anyone have a solution or a thought on what might be causing this?
thank you in advance...
Dennis

Welcome to the forums.

It sounds like a defective thermostat. Thermostat part # WR09X10059
Using that part number you can search for online parts sellers.
You can check with your local appliance parts retailer.
One online seller.... Temperature Control Thermostat WR09X10059 - Repair Clinic

The other problem could be the compressor isn't starting properly. You'd know that problem as you would hear a lot of clicking from the compressor when it tries to start.

Search using the part number and you'll find different prices. Even amazon brokers it.
