these frigidaire made freezers are notorious for having restrictions in the sealed systems that will cause exactly what your describing.
what happens is oil moves around in the freon system and pools up in the capillary tubes and the freon is not able to flow properly. if the unit is under 5 yrs old then should be inwarranty to sears. if its over 5 then probably cheaper to purchase a new one..

youyr best bet would be to build a frame that the casters are welded to and there are no holes in the outer shell of the freezer. some L shaped angle would work nicely for this application and then there would be plenty of support for when the freezer is loaded up with product. Be sure that teo of the casters are lockable and two in the swivel freely.

Sorry to read about your problem. you can have many different problems.
a wiring diagram will not help you in this case. all 3 items below at at the compressor.
odds are you will have to have the compressor replaced.
1. Failing compressor
2. Defective start cap
3. Defective overload protector
I suggest you call a service company.

SOURCE: kenmore freezer leaking green
It's not refrigerant. Refrigerant would have evaporated straight away. What did you have in the freezer when it went off? It may be refrigerant oil, in which case mop it up with paper tissue and clean the area with detergent. It's no more toxic than any other oil.It's most likely to be excess ice/frosting leeching from inside the cabinet. Again, mop up with tissue paper.
