I would consider the thermostat sounds like the freezer thinks it's warmer than it actually is and keeps running.

Did you check or replace the defrost timer? It could be a solid state type built onto a Printed Circuit board or could be a timer motor, it all depends on the model and make of the freezer.

If you cleaned it of all frost and ice and it keeps doing this then perhaps the defrost thermostat is detached from where it should be or shutting off too early. Try replacing it if is attached well.

My freezer coil keeps freezing up. I replaced the

In the freezer coil is a defrost heater coil, and a defrost thermostat. You have to expose the freezer coil to find them. If your local dealer can't get parts, I get mine from Repairclinic.com.

Samsung RB215BSSB refrigerator freezes up

I had a similar problem where my evaporator coil was freezing into a block of ice, which caused my fridge to warm up due to a lack of air flow. I fixed this by doing a few things. I replaced the circuit board ($100) which was easy to do. Unfortunately, this didn't fix my problem so I took the inner fridge cover off to view the evaporator/heater coil assembly. I checked my thermo fuse and found it to be open (failed). I ordered the thermo fuse and the thermistor and replaced them both. I then plugged the fridge back up and put a regular thermometer inside the fridge to get an accurate reading of inside temp. A few days now and everything looks good. The board, fuse, and thermistor were all pretty easy to replace.
