You have three questions
How do I turn it off for defrosting?
You unplug it from the wall socket.
How do you control temperature?
Freezers are preset to -18'C or 0'F. Once set, they seldom need changing. The thermostat is hidden behind a grill or panel.
You put it into storage, took it out and it doesn't work?
Refrigeration units hate that, the compressor can seize up, gas can leak out, rats and mice can eat the electric insulation. You need it looked at or you need a new one.

Generally, if you unplug the refrigerator and set the freezer and refrigerator temperature controls to off then plug it back it, this will put the refrigerator in forced defrost mode. Keep the doors closed and allow defrosting to last for about 20 minutes. Then unplug again and reset the temperature controls to mid-range or a little above, and plug it back in. If this does not reset the defrost cycle, you probably need service.
Hello Lori - First, make sure the freezer is plugged in and the
plug is tightly pushed into electrical outlet. Confirm that the temperature
control is not set in the OFF position. Set temperature controls to proper
setting or set to the halfway point and adjust it up or down as needed. Also
there is a possibility that the timer may be in defrosting mode, therefore it
will not run. Allow the defrost cycle to complete and the unit should resume to
normal operations. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post,
at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if the
unit's status has changed successfully. Best, Chris.
Your system most likely has an automatic defrost system. The auto defrost system should actuate every 8 or 12 hours. Under normal conditions the water from the drain pan will evaporate between defrost periods. The defrost is controlled by a timer and NOT by the temperature controls.
