Freezer froze and refrigerator wet

First took all frozen food out and than undid the screws that held back on--than cut the wires that held the piece and replaced it but also found that the plug was frozen so we thawed that out, that is why it took longer. Used air compressor to blow air and it broke it free and than we finished and put the food back after it got cold. So far it is working find and to beat all we received our part the next day so my husband could fix it that weekend--Thank you for the quick respond-

I found that frost was accumilating in the freezer

Ordered a defrost timer kit and a Bimetal defrost thermostat clip. I matched the wires but first I unplugged the frig.I cut the two wires on the Bimetal defrost and added the two connectors. All's well that ends well.Problem solved.
