Default Chest Freezer making gurgling noise...

I went away for the weekend, and when I returned the temp probe on my chest freezer was reading 77 degrees (Ranco controller set to 65 with a 3 degree variable) and it was making a gurgling noise.

Could this have to do with the heat in my apartment? It got up to over 90 degrees this weekend in NY while I was away.

Any ideas or suggestions on how to trouble shoot?

The chest freezer is only about 3 months old.

Sounds busted. I would take your beer out and plug it directly into the wall for a day to see how cold it can actually get. Then call for warranty service. 90f shouldn't be a problem.

So, you think it might just be an issue with the controller & not the actual freezer?

I have no idea. This test would decide which is at fault though
