Defrost heater is around evaporator coils. Take panel off(usually inside back wall) to access it.

Remove the filter and check for the filter change switch. turn off the power and reinstall the filter ensuring that the switch is triggered by the filter. Turn the power back on. Sometimes non original filters need to have a wedge to trigger the switch

First plug in the unit directly to a socket with no extension lead and use something to hold the trigger down. Leave the machine running on the floor with no movement. If it still offs and ons go to the overheat section below.
If the machine runs continuously then check the switch by holding the running machine and shak'n it. If it goes on and off there is a loose wire or broken switch.
If it is still running well then add an extension lead. Long cheap extension leads cause a voltage drop which means the machine uses to much current and overheats (see below).
Overheating. Electric motors housed in Plastic must have a thermal fuse of some sort. Blower Vacs that are used in the vacuum mode are prone to clogging with debris. First try cleaning out inside the unit and blowing with compressed air, if that doesnt work you will need to clean around the motor and perhaps replace the thermal fuse in a workshop.

No - the door ice comes from that unit in the freezer.

Refrigerators | Answered on Nov 08, 2018

The only power in the freezer is that that goes to the ice maker. What power do you think you are missing in the freezer?

Whirlpool... | Answered on Nov 08, 2018

There are water valves with solenoids that control the water to the door and to the ice maker. If these values leak they can cause water leaks and ice jams in the ice maker. A serviceman might be needed to replace the valves unless you are very handy.

It sounds like the compressor is not getting to its needed pressure or you have a leak and the gas has escaped making the compressor run constantly. If it is 24 deg I can imagine everything is frozen still but as gas escapes the unit will cool too much and then start not cooling enough and then not at all. Keep and eye on it. A serviceman might be needed soon.
