Based on the symptoms I assumed the thermostat was faulty and replaced it. However, that did not correct the problem so I use a hairdryer to try to clear the vent to the freezer and dusted the coils underneath the unit. Still no luck. Next I pulled the back panel off of the freezer are to check the fan but it was working just fine. However, the coils by the freezer fan were packed heavily with ice so I thawed the ice. That worked.
