CHANCES ARE THE DEFROST HEATER HAS GONE BAD LOOK IN THE BACK OF THE FREEZER ON THE REAR WALL DO YOU SEE ICE BUILD UP? IF SO TAKE A HAIR DRYER AND MELT THE ICE.MAKE SURE THE FREEZER IS UNPLUGGED.NOW REMOVE SCREWS TO GET THE COVER OFF AFTER REMOVING THE COVER CHANCES ARE YOU WILL FIND THE COILS FROZEN OVER.USE THE HAIR DRYER AND DEFROST THE COILS CLEAN OF ALL ICE.NOW THAT THE ICE IS GONE YOU NEED TO OHM OUT THE HEATER WITH A VOLT OHM METER YOU CAN BUT ON AT ANY HARD WARE STORE OR EVEN AT WAL-MART. WITH OUT KNOWING THE BRAND OF FREEZER I CANT TELL YOU IF IT IS A CAL ROD ELEMENT (LOOKS LIKE YOUR OVEN HEATING ELEMENT OR A GLASS TUBE. IF IT IS THE GLASS TUBE YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THE WIRE ELEMENT INSIDE IF YOU CANT REPLACE ELEMENTS/S WITH THE DEFROST THERMOSTAT. IF IT IS THE CAL ROD YOU MAY OR MAYNOT SEE WHERE IT IS BROKEN YOU MAY HAVE TO OHM IT OUT BUT AGAIN REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT ALSO. BUT SINCE YOU HAVE THE UNIT DEFROSTED THIS WILL GIVE YOU ABOUT THREE DAYS UNTIL YOU NEED TO DEFROST IT AGAIN IF YOU HAVE TO WAIT ON PARTS BUT REMIMBER TO PUT REAR COVER BACK ON OR IT WONT COOL
