That's what timers do when bad, won't let the compressor run when stuck on defrost. Replace it.

You mean it build up full of ice and no room for any thing...?
If so. Unplug it and let the door open for 24 hours then clean it up and plug back into power. You should be good for a while.

Good luck

I was told to check the doors gaskets when buying a fridge. The gasket must seal all around. Check by using a dollar bill. The dollar bill when placed anywhere along the door gasket must be held tight when the door is closed, it is held when you try to skip the bill off. If the bill is not held, the gasket is defective. This means there must not be any gaps letting air into the fridge.
A thin coat of ice means air is going into the fridge and moisture in the air freezing into ice.
Some doors flex and warp causing a bad gasket seal, or the gallery is bad. Just one probable cause for icing in the fridge
