Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect the defrost heater is shorted. The heater is shown as number 4 in the diagram at the link below. It is accessed by removing the rear panel in the freezer. Can you get a look and let me know what you find, please?
