Frost build up in coils in my freezer it is supposed to be froze free

Frost free Refrigerators go into defrost cycle every 6-12 hours depending on model.
If frost become visible, on of the defrost system (Defrost timer,Defrost heater, Defrost thermostat) components has failed. The most common failure is the defrost time. If you can locate the time, try to advance it (rotating) into defrost and if you see water coming into the drain-pan within a couple of minutes, than the Heater and thermostat are OK and you need to replace the timer (relatively easy job). If no defrost occur , you better call a tech and avoid replacing unnecessary parts. Caution - Some defrost timer are incorporated into the Ice Maker mechanism are hard to test and must replace the entrie Ice Maker

My Proline freezer has the warning on and won't get cold

if it is a frost free type it could be froze up.look for frost on the bottom back inside wall of the freezer,if you find frost there one of three things have failed,the defrost timer,the defrost heater or the defrost t-stat.if this is the case you will need to call your repair service to check it for you.too much electronics on all this stuff today i think.if on frost,check the cond. coil be hind the toe plate under the doors.this needs to be cleaned every 3 or 4 months.hope this helps.

Frost every thing

I assume you mean frost in the freezer only, not in the refrigerator compartment.
There are a lot of mechanical problems that might cause frost to build up. The unit has a defrost timer to defrost the freezer and it might be broken.however, more likely, the freezer door was left ajar letting a small amount of outside air in, which condensed and froze.
Check to see that freezer door is fully closing and is not being block in any way. Recheck after 6-8 hours and see if frost is gone. If it is still there, repost your question along with make and model of your unit. J
