In addition to the popping noise/coils are froze with orignal
Before I could check and correct the problem(the circuit/thermostat popping) I have also found the freezer coils frozen up and temperature is right at 30 degrees. On a brighter note I did find the defrost timer.
Re: In addition to the popping noise/coils are froze with...
Turns out the coils were not defrosting or at best working intermittently. I defrosted the coils and ordered a defrost timer the old timer continued to pop from intermittently.I replaced the defrost timer and it quit popping and noew the freezer works fine temps range between 9 degrees F and 14 degrees f.

Your coils are frosted over. Want let the fan push cold air around. I am having that issue right now. Turns out it is the control board is not telling the fridge to auto defrost or what to do and when to do it.
there is a problem with your defrost circuit.you also need to check for any bad spots in your seal that maybe letting air in the freezer causing excessive ice build up.but you need to check your defrost sensor
the defrost circuit has a problem, allowing the frost/ice buildup.. remove the shelves, and back lower cover in the rear of the freezer to expose the evaporator coil, defrost heater, and defrost thermostat. the defost heater should have continuity through it and the defrost thermostat will have continuity when frozen but test open when warmed.. if either bad replace. if both test good look for bad connections in the freezer compartment wiring, and moly connectors otherwise the temperature controls are bad and it is an electronic assembly that incorporates the temperature controls with the deforst timer controls.. hope this helps, best of luck, ttfn
Make sure the fan in the freezer is running circulating the air.
How to check everything http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer
are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of
cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In
most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.
If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks
and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace
the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the
timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.
If you heard the noise at a fairly routine rate and time it was probably the defrost timer motor. Locate it and you should be able to engage it manually. It is a plug and go part to replace. Be sure to take the old one along with the make n model # with you to the parts house!!
checking a def system is kind of easy. if you have located the defrost timer just turn the little knob on the timer until the unit shuts off, shortly you should hear "hissing and pooping" from water dropping on the heater. this lets you know that the defrost thermostat is good. if you dont hear this noise check your def thermostat and heater for continuity. if you put it into def and the heater comes on then you have a bad timer..
The thermostat should be a close circuit when requesting cold temps. or when asking the compressor to come on. The exterior surface on some freezers warm when asking for cold inside. Yours has a condenser coil on the back and that should warm when cooling. If compressor is runningit should be wrm if no freon has leaked from freezer somewhere.
The defrost timer should rotate clockwise during the day and give approx. 3 defrost daily or about every 8 hours. Until the thermostat is resolved and asks for a closed circuit the compressor will not come on. Unplug freezer from outlet,remove thermostat wires, then turn the thermostat to its coldest setting and check again. If no closed circuit the thermostat will need replaced first.
