Question about Refrigerators
Freezer arrived yesterday.Previous one returned to shop after two days as motor running constantly and top element thick with ice above and below. All items frozen but covered in snow.Set temp on new freezer to minimum ( previous set half way - no numbers on dial so have to guess.New freezer iced up after less than 24 hours.

If the frost build up is on the back panel of the freezer then it has a defrost problem which causes a no cool situation. Let me know more about this frost buildup and what you have done.

Your sensor is packed in ice and giving false reading (always frozen)
You NEED to defrost. Will take 2hr
Turn off or Pull plug on freezer
Take everything out and put in cooler, brown bags, large bin or boxes to stay cold
Defrost by setting large pail of boiling water in each side bottom of freezer and closing door(s) for 1/2hr
Open freezer, empty pails in sink and use pails to hold large chunks of ice from freezer that will come out easily
Toss out ice chunks
Check sensor to be sure it is no longer packed in ice
Wipe down interior dry
reload with stuff you want to keep

i had the same problem and i replaced the defrost heater and it worked fine for about one month but now having the same issue. Most of the time from what I have heard it is the defrost heater (about $60 part). I might have another issue going on with mine like a defrost thermostat. Your defrost heater is right under the panel on the inside of the freezer section. remove white panel on back side of freezer section and remove two screws and two wires and replace it and you should be fine.
