Its unlikely the freezer needs re-gassed.

My suggestion is you power the freezer off, remove any frost let the radiator at the back cool down, and then turn back on.

The most likely cause is there is a build up of frost stopping the cooling elements chilling the freezer compartment.

Another thing to check for is after a few hours the radiator\heatsink at the rear is warm, this shows the compressor is working, and coolant is being circulated.

Please let me know if you need anything clarified.
