Check that the correct thermostat is installed and that the element wire is connected.check door rubber and door hinges.check if it has independant defrost timmers and if it is working.oh and see if the element is drawing current if fitted with one.

Fridge freezer problem

Sounds like the defrost system of your freezer is not working. It could be either the defrost timer, defrost thermostat or the heater has a problem. The defrost timer turns off the compressor periodically to sent power to the defrost heater via the thermostat. The defrost heater then powers up and heats the evaporator coil to melt the accumulated ice buildup on the cold coils. Most likely issues are that the timer motor is not advancing the timer or the heater itself has burned out.

Had a fridge freezer in garage. Just found that

more than likely the defroster inside the freezer has gone bad. This defroster is located in the space between the fridge and freezer and activates to defrost the freezer and stop build up of ice in the freezer.. If it is bad the freezer will not keep the fridge nor freezer cold.

Defrost timers usually cause this type of frost build up. However it can also be caused by the defrost heater and/or heater thermostat, and these items are behind the panels therefore not easy to get to. Also before you attempt to take the panels apart make sure the refrigerator is unplugged.

It sounds like a Freon leak. The compressor is running and it gets a little cold. THis is not something you can fix yourself. You have to have certification to buy freon and gauges and know exactly how to use them. Besides in most cases you can't find the leak and will have to keep recharging it.
