it could be your evaporator fan that's located in the back of your freezer being blocked by ice buildup. you will have to turn off the light by either using a magnet or pressing the light switch off so fan will run while door is open. Fan will not run while door is open and light on. Do you have frost buildup on rear wall of the freezer?

The Hoover Orchid is actually a rebadged Phillips Fridge. It would be over 20 years old now. I used to fix these in the mid to late 90,s

It could be the defrost-limit thermostat (bi-metal), or a bad temperature-conrol (cold-control) thermostat.

There is some truth to it. Refrigerant needs to flow from high pressure to low pressure, and refrigerant pressure is directly proportional to temperature. Once the temperature drops below 40*F, for the outdoor coil, refrigeration efficiency is lost. Some heatpump units need auxiliary heat because.
Cold refrigerant condenses, into a liquid, and a compressor will not compress liquid, why its valves and internals would chatter into pieces. There is such thing as compressor crank case heaters, or belly band heaters. A heater removes, evaporates liquid refrigerant from within a compressor, it is protection.

I would get a compressor heater, wraps around the compressor belly, near 50 watts, and can use a relay to switch off the heater when the compressor runs, or let the heater work continuously.

sounds like your compressor has gone, if the compressor isn't running then the unit won't freeze or get cold. if you mean the condenser fan? then replace it!

That can be two things.

1. Condensation

2. The evaporator is in there behind the grill with a small fan. It freezes up and has a defrost which causes water. That water runs into a drain, your drain is blocked or the fan isn't working.

28 years old, you are due for a new one.
