you said a mouth full . any of the 3 would cause freeze up.. so make sure the inside fan (evap fan is working ) . if unit is newer one the control in side fresh food may be bad and the sensor in the freezer. if it does not sense tempt properly the compressor run time is too long causing freeze up . now some times new components fail so ck them . . clean the bottom coils . and make sure the bottom fan is cooling the coils .. mm
Compressor and evap fan cycling are controlled by a circuit board as well as the defrost. It is all in serie - once your defrost kicks in contact is cut from the evap fan and compressor - once defrost is finished the switch reverts back to normal operation and your evap fan & compressor turns on.
Most common causes of this issue is either a defrost timer fault or control board (burnt resistor or bad board).
Inspecting and changing the control board will usually fix the issue - if your evap fan comes on after changing the board but not the compressor then you have a bad compressor.
If you have one of those units like some whirlpool/Kenmore/Inglis that have electronic controls in the refrigerator section, this is the board that controls the thermostat and compressor on/off cycling. The board behind your freezer is also connected to the board in your fridge, this one controls the defrost.
Don't you mean your CONDENSER (the black tubes found at the back of your unit or below it ? Those are the ones that dissipate the heat - if they are at the bottom, there is usually a fan blowing air on it, if applicable, check to see if it is spinning, when the compressor is on.
The EVAP coils are the ones you find when you remove the freezer's back panel, you will see a fan there, blowing the cool air from the evap coils.
If the evap coils in your freezer are over frost it will cause cooling problems, in which case your defrost system is not functioning and you will need to change the control board and have the defrost components checked to make sure everthing else is working.
