A sensor tube ( looks like a wire ) in front, at air inlet, is the temperature sensor and many times this sensor is poorly cared for and even broken off by people. It's my guess, this sensor may be the problem for it controls compressor cycling on and off.

The unit wont work with just ice bottles. It needs water to run down the pads to create the evaporative effect. The tank should have a drain somewhere. Look down the bottom of the machine for a plug or tap that can be removed / unscrewed to drain the water out.

Frostless freezers will go into a defrost cycle periodically and the frost that accumulates in the freezer section melts and runs into a pan under the refrigerator section, through a drain hose. If this hose clogs with crud (common) the melt water can't drain and leaks into refrigerator section (or it was designed this way so as to prevent refreezing.) As the drain is clogged, thd water builds up until it overflows to floor level.

You need to locate the drain in bottom of the refrigerator section (usually near the back where its hidden from view) and clear it out. (Use care as its usually only a vinly hose and can be punctured or slipped off its connection).

it moves the oil around into lines that clog / restrict freon thru lines and oil starve compressor --can break lines and components etc usually wait a few hrs before plugging in the unit after transporting so oil can gravitate down towards compressor

Need a little more info, but it should have a removable container that hold the ice. That comes out. If it is too jammed up with ice to move it, you will have to carefully chip away at some of it, or let it thaw. Once you are able, take the container out and empty it completely dry it out. If that doesn't do it, there is a problem with the mechanism.

Depends on the settings you set the frig and freezer to , as soon the settings are reached it should shut off, anything longer than a few hours points to a fault.
