I have an upright freezer, Amana ESU 15 CL, it works fine,

I have an upright freezer, Amana ESU 15 CL, it works fine, just runs all the time. Sides and top warm to touch. On the hot side last night, was using the top of the unit to store paper towels and removed same.Took a long black metal cover off the tubes on the back, there's an ice buildup 12 inches from the top. The water tray under the fridge is dusty and dry as a bone. I've shut the unit off to let the ice melt.I have an energy monitor that tells me it draws about 300 watts.Is it normal to run what seems like all the time ? Why is the water tray dry ?Thank you !

We have a GE Upright Freezer purchased in 2009. The model number is ***** 14SVAR This freezer is located inside of our home.The unit has power and is running however we just noticed that the controls on the front outside panel are inoperative. The panel only shows a small dot at the bottom of the display. We cannot change any settings including the temperature setting.Just wondering if we should start looking to replace this freezer due to its age and the temperature controls being inoperative.
