Since this is a freezer, it should have a defrost terminator/ fan delay. This could have gone bad or you may have a refrigeration problem. Such as low on freon due to a leak. Need more info, I'll explain in detail. Let me know. Will Be more than happy to.

Testimonial: "as I troubleshot this issue I came on the same diag as your tech...great job!!"
these units are designed to run approx 85 percent of the time,they maintain temp rather than letting it get to a higher temp and then try to cool it down.they use a lot less energy to run the way they do long running times are normal

Is the freezer itself getting cold.To blow cold air.the freezer should get cold/friezed.the cold air blows from freezer to fridge side.first the freezer side gets cold, then when the freezer side gets enough cool to its set cooling temperature, at that time the defrost cycle starts.In defrost cycle the fan in the freezer starts running and the cool air from freezer starts going to fridge side.There is a ventilation passage between fridge and freezer from where this cool air passes.----------------
If in your case, the freezer is getting proper cold, but its not blowing cold air from freezer to fridge, then possibility is that, there is a blockage in ventilations.But if ventilation its clear, then its defrost problem.First try manual
defrost reset procedure. The procedure is as follows: ----
First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit
completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected
on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the
water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power
outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and
freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling
cycle. Then check, if the problem returns again. Then its defrost board problem. -------------------------
BUT if in your case, the freezer section itself is not getting cold, then the problem is compressor related.The compressor is the part which cools the freezer frost.In the compressor, there is a refrigerant to cool the freezer.If the compressor gets weak or the refrigerant gets low, then it will not cool the freezer, if the freezer is not cool then it will blow warm air from freezer to fridge, in defrost cycle.In that case, the compressor is faulty and its the cause of problem.------------
So you will have to first check , that is your freezer getting cold or not.as per that you can start the troubleshooting.------------------

Contact a professional. The power supply source needs to be testing to the compressor and see if the power is fine, or if the compressor is faulty and not drawing needed power.

Hi djgecko - Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve this issue:
· First check clearances around your freezer. There must be adequate space around a freezer with a static condenser so that air can circulate properly. Proper clearances include 1" at the back and 3" on top of the unit.
· Examine your doors. If the doors have been opened too often or for too long, this may have allowed warm air to enter the freezer. Make sure to shut the door completely and be sure not to keep the door open for too long. Even leaving a door slightly open can allow too much warm air intake. Make sure the freezer is level and keep food and containers from blocking the door closing.
· Check the door seal. You do this by placing a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet, double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything that may be stopping it from closing. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then replace the gasket. (Most appliance owners can easily do this without any tools or sealant.)
· Check to see if the condenser is dirty. A dirty condenser cannot release heat efficiently into the surrounding air. Cleaning the condenser may be necessary, more if you have animals in the house. If you have condenser coils, they should be wiped occasionally with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust. The condenser coils should be wiped occasionally with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust.
· Check for any obstructions to the vent to ensure proper air flow. If the vent is blocked, the air in the freezer will not get cool.
· Double check the freezer control. If the freezer control is set too warm, set freezer control to a colder setting and allow 24 hours for temperature to stabilize.
If these assessment measures prove to be ineffective, I would strongly suggest contacting an authorized service technician who would be better able to assist you in the diagnosis and repair of your unit. You can often locate an experienced technician in your area by going to the manufacturer website.

Hi - From what you have described it sounds like the freezer has a poor door seal. When cold air and warm air outside is entering it causes condensation. Try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing it. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then I suggest contacting your manufacturer and see who they recommend to repair the unit.
