I have inherited a non-working Frigidaire LFFC1466DW3 chest freezer. It was reported that it was making a weird sound while running. I identified that as the fan and that's no longer a problem.

Here are the current symptoms/conditions:
-compressor gets warm during operation
-evaporator coils are clean
-I have bypassed the thermostat and that didn't help
-I hear hissing/bubbling in the coil lines. This, along with warm compressor, should indicate presence of Freon, is that correct?

What would be possible causes for no cooling at this point? Any other conditions I should report to help out with troubleshooting?

The freezer was transported on its side and turned on immediately. I know that is a "no-no" but I've read where that won't always kill a freezer, especially on "newer" models in the past ten years. Is that the case? It has been sitting for about two days now without being used. Thanks for any help.

Is the hissing/bubbling noise coming from the air dryer or at the inlet to the evaporator coil?
