The freezer being in a building with no heat wouldn't cause this problem, the electronics are just beginning to fail. If you unplugging the unit for 60 seconds and the board didn't reset and work properly, it means your your electronic display board just needs to be ordered and replaced so below is a link to the part you'd need to order for your model. The part is all plug an display so if you're handy you can definitely replace it yourself.
