Hi. I am Kelly and welcome to FixYa. Here is the real question..... Is the food staying frozen?
Freezers usually defrost 3 times a day (8 hr intervals) Some as often as 4 times a day. The freezer use concept is that it is not opened more than 3 times a day. (Yes there will be more times than that any given week)
Having said all of that.... some things to look at.
1. Check the door seal for any signs of tears... grease... collapse...
2. Make sure there are no gaps in the door or between the closed door and the seal.
3. Many people don't check this one... but make sure it is level. An un-level freezer can cause the door seal not to function correctly.
Now if your saying that the food is actually defrosting... then there are a few other things that can cause that.
A. Sticking / defective Defrost timer
B. Defrost element is not heating and the freezer goes through a VERY long defrost cycle as the contents have to reach 60 Deg F for the 60 Deg bi-metal thermostat to close and advance the defrost timer to start the compressor.
C. Intermittent operation of the 60 Deg thermostat
I hope this clears things up a bit for you.
Thanks for using FixYa.
