Question about Electrolux Refrigerators
You have a defrost issue causing frost/ice accumulation on the back panel of the freezer and stopping air flow across the low side.
When this happens the air flow is stopped to the fresh food and its gets warmer by the day until it is finally defrosted. What is your model #???

Your freezer section has a defrost system problem. A device (Timer) schedules defrosts, energizes electric heaters which melt the frost, when the temperature of the coil gets above the point where all ice is melted a thermostat opens cutting the electrical circuit for the heater(s). The defrost cycle continues until the time expires (18-22 minutes). Therefore your problem could be any one of the three elements. Timer, heater, or thermostat.

Do you know for certain that the automatic defrost cycle is running at all?
Depending on the model, it should be entering the defrost mode every 12 or 24 hours. If the defrost timer is not easy to see (because of the drawer construction), you should be able to catch it by checking the walls of the freezer at random to see if they are still 'ice' cold or more temperate.
You may definitely have a leak, no argument there, but the defrost cycle may have been masking it while it was still happening by sending the ice/water down to the pan.

If the fridge side is frozen you have a door seal issue.
If the freezer side is frozen you have a defrost component issue.
Your post was not clear as to which side is frozen.

I recently had exactly the same problme with this model refrigerator. I found the problem to be the defrost timer. It is located behind the panel on the back of the refrigerator where the mains cord is located, you will need to replace it with the exact same model. I am in Australia and managed to find the exact part on ebay cheaply from a local appliance parts supplier, any appliance parts supplier that deals in Sharp refrigerators should be able to help you.
You will have to defrost the refrigerator overnight again before doing this repair.
Of course there are a couple of other components that could cause this problem, you can acutally check to see if the defrost time is moving by taking note of it's current position and then checking it every thirty minutes or so. If it does not move then it could be faulty, make sure also that power is getting to the timer as well.
