Frosting up. I have replaced the defroster and the thermostat limiter switch and it still frosts up. What's next? Thanks

My defroster shuts the whole refrigerator and freezer down for at least 35 minutes before turning back on again for the whole freezer and refrigerator. I put a portable thermostat in the freezer to see where the freezer temperature will turn back on. The freezer goes up to 50° before the defroster turns the refrigerator back on. Is this the normal range? The frozen food seems to get a little thawed and does seem a little soft. What part would I need to stop this or is the normal range?

My defrost thermostat has popped, so I am thinking it is shot, however there is no ice build up behind the panel. Neither the freezer or refrigerator sections cool. About two years ago we had a similar problem, but there was frost build up behind the panel and the thermostat was bad. We replaced it and it has been fine until now. Any ideas?

This units freezer is freezing up, so far I've replaced the Defrost Limiter Thermostat (AP3884317) - no help, replaced the Main Control Board (AP4436216), still no change - unit runs ok for about a month then the freezer freezes again and everything defrosts.. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I have a GE side-by-side Refrigerator, Model # SSL25KFPEBS. We just replaced the control board in the back, which solved one problem, but we are still having issues with another problem. The coils in the back wall of the freezer are frosting up and the food in the top shelves of the refrigerator side gets warm. So, about every 7 to 10 days, I have to take everything out of the Freezer and let it defrost and then start it back up. I could use your help to identify the cure. Could it be the defrost Limiter Thermostat ?
