The freezer not running for several hours should not allow food to thaw. One thought is that the heater on the evaporator coils is not working.

My Whirlpool refrigerator quits working and restarts

Good day,
If it only occurs on a monthly cycle, even a service tech would not find it unless it happened while he was there.
First choice would be to replace both the thermostat and the defrost control. These are the items that turn the machine off and on and either one could hang or stick once in a while.

NOW, that is based on the fact that the machine goes totally dead during that period. If you hear something, anything running then the above does not apply.
The possibilities then, are, the fan motor in the freezer won't run (you can hear it running when you open the freezer door), the cooling fan motor behind the bottom rear cover that cools the compressor and condenser same situation, will not run.

Lastly, the start relay mounted on the side of the compressor is weak. It will not kick in the compressor, but in that situation, the fans will run.

Hope that helps. I've serviced a lot of refrigerators with that complaint, and it's always been the first 2 items.

New freezer not cooling - temp @ 25 degrees and food is defrosted

It is probably the control board and since it's new it's still under warranty so a certified Frigidaire repair man will fix it without charge. There should be a telephone number with the paperwork you received when you bought it.

Viking Pro VCBB36 -warming up + alarm

Over the past several years my heat alarm would come on, first time I called a PROFESSIONALLY, he told me to unplug for 24HOURS, than start it. The solution worked for two years, just happened again, unplugged it for 24 hours, and it seems fine. My guess it must need to defrost. Good luck!
