Hi my name isXXXXX will be assisting you with this problem.Please allow me some time to do research and type a response to each of your posts.

Both problems relate to the same thing, you have a problem with the defrost system. Take the panel out at the rear inside of the freezer, behind here you will see the evaporator and below the evaporator you will see the defrost heater. Test the heater with a ohms meter, if it reads open then it will need to be replaced. If the heater is good (reads continuity) then the sensor is bad and will need to be replaced.
