SOURCE: The red light remains on...
The coils should have a nice white frost pattern evenly on the coils (no solid ice block sort of thing). If there is very little frost, or say just chunk of ice in one spot, then you may have a leak in the system where the refrigerant has leaked out. The fan above the coils should be on when the compressor is running to circulate the cold air. It does sound like you may have a sealed system leak and there's just not enough refrigerant to flash into a gas for proper cooling. Check on these items and get back to us.

bulmer...it takes about two days to fully defrost these units unless you take the freezer section cover off and use a heat source. If you do...be sure to protect yourself against water and electricity mixing....not healthy. See below for another note.
clean the condenser coils below the unit.
check for the amount of gas in the unit. It must be off for half an hour. Remove the back fiber panel. The big thing is the compressor. Clean off the largest pipe coming out of it. Plug the unit in...watch out for the fan! The pipe should frost up and then clear off or stay wet after about 5 minutes. It should not be frosty. If it is, you need refrigerant.
Note: If you do remove the inside freezer panel and defrost, you can see how much refrigerant you have in your unit. Start the unit. Wait 5 minutes and observe the coils. They should be evenly frosted end to end. If approximately so, you're good. If not, you're low on gas.
