I am not an expert but I have the same fridge and came across this information concerning the same model:

You have a bad overload / relay , which is plugged onto the side of the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires going to it . The part number is 2220477 , and is easily replaceable .

Did you check or replace the defrost timer? It could be a solid state type built onto a Printed Circuit board or could be a timer motor, it all depends on the model and make of the freezer.

Whirlpool model ed5chqxkbo1 wont cool

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} That is usually the evaporator fan motor ($30).
Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5 years. Can get from a parts supplier or electric motor company.
Unplug fridge. Located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires. Replace with new motor, make sure the fan pushes air into the freezer area and doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.
