My freezer keeps freezing up. coils turn into a block of ice and the fridge gets warm. I've replaced the drain and the jazz board. I thought the new board would work, but it still freezes up about every 10-14 days.

Use a DMM and check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat for continuity. Check the defrost thermostat while it's frosty. It needs to be below 39°F to show continuity.
