If it is a frost free freezer it could be the thermostat has a fault that has left the defrost heating panel switched on.

If the freezer is otherwise working correctly the refrigeration system will be trying to remove the heat from inside to the outside and so the compressor will be running continuously and the condenser will be quite hot.
If the condenser isn't hot it is likely the compressor is broken or the refrigerant has escaped...

Problem: It's leaking water
This happens when food particles or other debris clogs up the drain hose, which can lead to ice buildup and, eventually, water leaking out of the freezer and refrigerator. ... Pull your refrigerator out from the wall and locate the defrost drain hose in the bottom back service panel.

When you replaced the thermistor, did you check the resistance of the wiring and temperature sensor back at the control board? If the wires are damaged or the connector at the control board has corrosion, the control board won't get the correct signal information. If those are fine, then the control board is probably faulty. Sears Parts Direct has the control board here: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/product/3jlv6aqwdo-0046-253/id-5304512769 . Other repair shops will have this part as well.

I wish that only the refrigerator temperature sensor was faulty. I hope this helps.

I cannot locate any parts for that unit or even that model number but it appears from your description that the temperature sensor has issues. I am not able to tell if it is a themistor, bimetal spring or capillary tube type. Which ever type it is, it needs replaced.
