Answers :

You have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

Though Freezer is working fine, this model 64952 (6.5 yrs old; limited vacation home use only) has not properly cooled fridge portion for a few months. At first, it (also) wasn't defrosting, and water was leaking into fridge area, but I resolved this by de-icing (unplugged/hair dryer) and the water leaking went away. Defrost issue may be returning (beads of ice at top of freezer) but biggest issue is fridge stays in the 50s.
