Oil in the evaporator. It may come back if you leave it running for a few days, but usually needs flushing out.

If you have run it in a tilted position, the oil has migrated from the compressor to the evaporator. You need a technician to flush the oil back to the compressor. Only run equipment like this on a flat level surface. and always allow to stand a few hours after moving before switching on.

First, i will advice you check if the compressor and fan works when you plug the freezer, from your explanation, the click sound seems to me it could be a faulty compressor.
Before testing the compressor motor, unplug the freezer to avoid an electrical shock hazard. Also, if the compressor uses a capacitor, it may contain a lethal electrical charge. Do not touch the terminals until you have discharged the capacitor. The problem could also be a relay problem,. The function of the start relay is to momentarily energize the start winding in the compressor motor and then cut power to the start winding as soon as the motor is running. Most of the start relays on modern compressors are solid state and use a special material whose resistance increases with temperature. So, as current flows through the relay and the relay heats up, its resistance increases to the point that the start winding is isolated from the rest of the circuit.
A common failure of these relays is that the solid state material "cooks" and breaks up, staying open and thus never allowing the start winding in the compressor motor to energize. The end result is that the compressor tries to start, usually you'll hear a humming noise, and then, after a few seconds, the compressor's overload protector takes the compressor offline with a loud CLICK. Easy way to tell if the start relay is bad is by simply removing it from the compressor's control pod and shaking it. If you hear any rattling, it's fried.

Have the gas checked. If the thermostat pick-up is frozen over that could result in the contents of the freezer not getting cold, but for that there would have to be a build up of ice on the sides of the freezer.

It 's builded that way so there's not condensation around the door frame and on the walls.

If the food is at normal temperature, then what you are describing is normal.
On a chest freezer the condenser coils are embedded in the outer walls, as the evaporator coils are embedded in the inner walls to provide cooling.

This is the very basic principle of refrigeration. One set of coils (the condenser) are allowed to get hot, so the other set of coils
(the evaporator) can get cold.

When the unit is not running, which is most of the time, the walls will cool to room temperature.

Hi, sometimes high-limit goes bad, but why, check to make sure you're not overloaded with produce, check to make sure freezer has good ventilation, if your days are hot, high limit will switch off, to pretect compressor, could be compressor getting faulty, you should empty freezer, clean and restart empty for an hour, if freezing o/k, put back produce, if when clean and empty, does same thing, maybe your compressor is faulty, called a mechanic, or replace high limit switch. good luck.

You can try resetting it by unplugging it for 10 minutes.

The Ed error code is referring to the defrost heating system.
