You have one of the following problems which is indicated by the frost buildup. Your defrost timer has failed, or defrost heater circuit consisting of a defrost heater and defrost thermostat. Start at the defrost timer. May be located in the fridge compartment near the temperature controls. There may be a recess through which you can turn the dial SLOWLY clockwise until you hear one click. the freezer will be in defrost. Wait 18-22 minutes and the freezer should defrost and restart into cooling. If it does not restart after 30 minutes turn the screw clockwise again one more click and it should restart.
If you had to turn it again to get it to restart the timer is bad and needs to be replaced. If the timer restarted the cooling mode after 18-22 minutes and defrost did not take place your problem is in the heater circuit.

If it is a magic chef the model number will be on the back of the fridge and will have to order the exact defrost timer for this model. Only place to get will be from repairclinic.com

Clearing the ice build up is a good start,the problem though is the drain pan under the coil in the freezer thats iced up is blocked so when the defrost heater comes on and melts the frost from that coil,it the water is collecting in the freezer and in many cases drips into the fresh food compartment,clearing the drain will resolve your leaking/ice build up issue.THE DEFROST HEATER IS GOOD melting the frost in the first place and hence forth that melted frost stays in the freezer and becomec ice.
