Why do I have ice in the bottom of a whirlpool EV205nxtn upright freezer?

My name s Peter. I am a retired field service technician.
1.) First, lets check your defrost timer. You will need a small flat head screw driver. Pull your freezer out to where you can get behind it. Do not unplug your freezer yet. There is a small white box almost 2" square. On this box is a small shaft with a slot in it. Turn this dial with your screw driver slowly until your unit shuts down (Compressor not running). What you have just done is force your unit into the defrost mode.
If the unit does not shut down you have a bad defrost timer. We are not done with the defrost timer yet.
Take a break, grab a cup of coffee, allow the unit 30 minutes to defrost.
Upon returning if the freezer has defrosted you have a bad defrost timer. Unplug the freezer and replace. Easy job.
2.) Ok, not the timer. Lets check the freezer drain. At times the freezer drain freezes up. When the unit goes into defrost the condensate can not go down the drain and you build up a wall of ice behind the bottom back wall.
Unplug the freezer. Pop the setting control knob off on the lower back panel. You may need a screw driver to wedge it off. Pull the seal strips out on the 2 sides. Unscrew all of the fasteners on the back panel cover. You can not remove the cover yet. You must disconnect the temperature control. There are different mountings. Perhaps 2 screws holding the control to the back cover or a connector where you need a small screw driver to wedge them apart.
Ok, you observe a wall of ice and have a frozen drain. Do not let the freezer defrost itself, you will have a flood. Using a hair dryer and a plastic spatula melt the ice and remove it in chunks. This is a long consuming task, take you time. Be careful not to touch any of the unit components. Let the hair dryer do the work on the evaporator coil etc. Clear the drain with hot water soak up as much as you can. We do not want this to happen again - lets make a heat sink. Taking a piece of 12-14 gauge wire about 3' long, strip about 2" off one end. You should wear gloves. The fins on the evaporator coil are razor sharp. Wrap the striped end of the wire around the defrost heater (Long black bar beneath the evaporator coil). Secure it tightly. Extend the other end of the wire to your drain hole. You want to cut the wire where you strip 2" of exposed bare wire into the drain hole. So, when your defrost heater is on any ice in the drain hole will be melted. Reassemble the back panel. Plug the unit in.
I can not finish. I am limited to size of response

My freezer is cooling but it is running too much. I was trying to find a new gasket for it. The model number is MCCF5WBX. Is there anywhere that I can find one?

On all freezers there is an area either below or behind that resembles an automobile RADIATOR....this can become clogged with dust. Try unplugging and moving the appliance away from the wall and accessing either behind or beneath and vacuum-out all dust and debris. Replug or restart the freezer, plugging it in, and see if there is a difference. These types of refridgeration devices require the clear passage of air, circulating thru the cooling filters inside and outside of the freezer. Always have air-circulating around your freezers and fridge.

Thanks, I bought a woods freezer modelco7na-k1 3.0amps, ok my question is it got into a flood and now makes ket ket noise when pluged to the eclectricty but does not get cool

The issue is most likely the relay that starts the compressor.

Behind the freezer on the bottom is a black device about the size of a bowling ball, this is the compressor. Mounted on the side of the compressor in a box with wires going in is the relay. Unplug the power cord to the freezer. Pry open the box and note what wires go where. Remove the wires and pull off the components from the compressor, they may be tight but will pull off. You should be able to find this at a local appliance parts dealer.

Freezer runs but does not cool

have you tried to replace the fan motor located behind the panel, just remove the 4 screws in each corner and the fan is behind this panel, it should be 2 screws and a few wires to disconnect, replace motor and connect wires this should cool the freezer properly

Ice keeps melting in the freezer side of the fridge periodically and leeking water everywhere. Temperature seems to randomly drop to the point where it melts.

Sounds like it's the defrost thermostat gone bad. It's located on the evaporator coils behind the back cover inside the freezer. It may be mishapenned or you can test it. It should show continuity with an ohm meter when it's above 35 degrees. It cuts the defrost heater off to prevent overheating.

Burning Smell

Keep it unplugged and look for burned wires, or rubber wires hardened from extreme heat. This will be a good start in finding what is going wrong. One more thing to check is if the compressor is heating up after running for a while. Let it run for 20 min or so, shut off the power and feel the compressor. Is it hot?
