I have this problem with Frigidaire upright freezer LFFU14F5HWD. Noted it strange that my ice cream was frozen solid. Bottom of freezer had frozen puddle. Removed back panel and found the coil mostly free from frost, so I assume the defrost element was working. Defrosted frozen drain, removed defrost thermostat and it metered open at room temp. I stuck it in my fridge freezer for 20 minutes, removed and metered it as having continuity. I reassembled and repowered and left for 3 hours. Temp gauge read about -15 to -18. Adjust door thermostat control from 4 to 1. Rechecked 30 minutes later and temp was about -20. Changed the thermostat to 0 and the compressor keeps running. Is it the cheap thermister or the expensive temperature controller?
