Yes, the freezer / refrigerator is a heat pump, it transfers heat from the inside to the outside. Heat transfer effitiance is reduced if the outside is at hight temperature, so it is sudgested to allow free air flow for the back of the cooling device (where the radiator is )

The 6 or7 may be a setting number or a degree readout, which is a little on the warm side, should be around a -10 to-15.
Consult your users manual for details ,.Does not sound like an emergency, but keep monitoring it'

Gaskets can cause this, along with internal fans getting bad or iced over. Other answers might indicate a leak of freon.

GE Freezers | Answered on Sep 29, 2017


the users manual does not cover this particular issue as to the temperature swing. I have seen some thermostats that are the "constant on" type that you are describing. No way of telling from the vague manual. As long as you are not storing ice cream for a long period of time, 0 degrees is usually fine for most home applications. Sorry I can not give you more info.

Make sure the electricity is connected. Check the start capacitor - check for the compressor running.

Have you tested the wall socket for power, do that first.

They are usually for extra ddehumidification based on the area you live in. If your freezer is working correctly, I would just leave them where they are at
