The evap coil is likely frozen over from running 2 hours straight.
Defrost it for 24 hours, and re-try. Inspect that the evap fan is operating properly.

Good day,
No reason it wouldn't work fine. It should be noted that if your in a grocery store the freezer sections used to store ice cream are separate from those for normal produce.
The reason is the ice cream is normally kept 15 degrees colder.
However, this unit has an adjustable tstat that should get you around the ideal 0 degree range.
As well, it's designed to be rugged not as energy effecient as a standard domestic freezer.

every time you open the freezer door , the cold air is dropped to the floor so the unit has to work hard to bring the temp back down same as any up right freezer
fridge --it is as efficient as the rest
