The sides of my freezer are now getting hot, it runs for long time and more often, and there is excessive water drain. Could this be the defrost thermostat causing it to be in the defrost mode too much?

Water drained on floor all day, food soft, evaporator output temp 20 degrees, evaporator fan runs, compressor runs, sides very warm, digital amp draw 0.6-0.7. Removed food, power off all night. Turned defrost timer until clicked and compressor shut down. AMP draw at this point 0.00. Timer motor audible. Waited for pressures to equalize, removed cover from evaporator, re-started cool cycle, compressor 0.7 amps, with back cover removed, evaporator coil (open) with digital instant read thermometer reads -2.1 degrees, freezer sides again quite warm to touch. Felt no heat near bottom of evaporator coil during defrost cycle. I would think heaters last >3 years, but perhaps defrost thermostat open circuit, so it can't heat? Thanks!

My Kenmore Commercial frost free freezer has been running continually for the past several days. I have noticed that the food is starting to thaw slightly. It remains cold but not frozen. I have it set at 4 on the dial. I had this freezer repaired in 2012 and the mechanic put in a new sensor behind the inside back panel. Do you think that is the problem again?

Hi, I have the listed Kenmore freezer for more than 12 years. It has worked fine most of the time. Recently (over the past 3 months) it is displaying the following problem: intermittently it does not work. When this happens the freezer gets warm and whatever is stored starts to thaw. When I notice that this is the case I press the inside back panel and immediately the fan comes on and cold air blows and then eventually the motor starts up and everything works fine. The freezer will then work fine for several days and then the problem recurs. Sometimes I notice that the freezer is not working but the inside is cold and everything is still frozen. When I press the inside back wall nothing happens. I figure that it is in its defrost mode. Eventually the motor comes on again. I am thinking that at those times when the freezer does not come on it seems to be unable to come out of the defrost mode. I don't know if this is correct. Any help you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The hole that leads to the drip pan keeps freezing. If I pour hot water down it, it thaws but refreezes in a couple of days

I have a Fridgidaire frost free deep freeze. A few days ago I noticed some water underneath it and the temperature had gone up to 15-20 degrees. I took everything out and now it goes from between 0-15. It seals tight. It's about 10 years old. Any ideas?
