If this is a frost free unit as I received it posted you may have a problem in that it is not frost free. The cooling coil may be frozen over stopping air circulation. There would be a defrost timer located somewhere in back. Located the clutch head screw and turn it clockwise SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. That should put the system into the defrost mode. Wait about 30 minutes in which time the system should return to the cooling mode (usually 18-22 minutes). If it does not restart the compressor after that time turn the clutch head screw clockwise again and it should restart. If you had to turn the screw the second time it would indicate a bad defrost timer. In this case replace the timer.

Sounds like you have either a bad defrost heater or a bad defrost control timer, however I can not provide part numbers, as I can not find any model numbers which begin with FFA91

this sounds like your freezer is operating properly, except that the drainage of the water when going through the defrosting mode is not draining properly, pooling on the bottom of the freezer and then freezing. Check the drainage hose for the defrost in the lower pan. I would remove everything, place in ice chest, let the unit completely thaw out and then inspect. I hope this is beneficial.

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.

Check the vents in the fridge side and close a little if you can. On the freezer side just for good measure>>>>
Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed
and PLEASE give a Thumbs Up for the effort. The Raz Shack
