It's probably the defrost timer is getting stuck in the defrost mode. What it does it it periodically interrupts power to the compressor and sends power to the defrost coils to allow any frost on the cooling coils to melt to keep them clear of ice build up. This is typically a mechanical timer and sometimes the motor fails and it stop turning and if it fails in the defrost mode, the compressor never turns back on no matter how warm the freezer is.
You can confirm it is the timer, by tracing the wires from the compressor to a little 2 by 2 inch box which is the timer. On one side there should be a round hole with a plastic cam. You should be able to turn that cam with a flat screw driver or a coin. Just give it a slight turn until you hear a click. After you turned the cam, the compressor should start. If it does, then it is the timer.
