Followed advice from some forum posts here to replace Defrost timer and/or bimetal thermostat. First started with the defrost timer, but the freezer frosted over again. Then replaced bimetal and seems to have resolved the problem. Simple repair. If it wasnt for having to defrost the freezer each time I replaced the parts, it would have taken less time to repair.
