This is an upright Frigidaire freezer. The defrost timer is at the bottom left side of the rear of the unit. One screw holds it in place and it only plugs in one way. When your freezer won't stay cold enough to freeze this is the first part to check. It is cheep to replace (20-30 dollars) and will usually fix the problem. It took about 5 minutes to replace the part and my freezer is up and running like new.
