Very possible the door seal is not properly sealed. Warm inflowing air onto a cold coil will cause ice build up at the lid.

Get to the compressor and feel its temperature. If it is cold, then the thermostat will be faulty. Not impossible, but the clixon and run relay inside the electrical box could also be faulty. One needs a digital tester to check both.

Have seen that on certain controllers before. Very possible your temp. sensor is open circuit or out of spec. or not making proper contact on the wiring harness. You would need a digital thermometer to check the sensor.

In short you possibly have a gas blockage or a leak in the system and need a Tech. with gauges and testing equiptment to confirm.

If it is a chest freezer, almost certainly it is the compressor. Only way to check is to pull the power plug out then remove the compressor wires from the terminals then make sure it doesent touch the frame of the freezer, then plug the power back in and see if the power trips again. If not, there is the problem.

Believe it or not, but it is normal. Especially when just turned on. As the internal temp. gets colder so will the temp. on the side get cooler.

Run out of refrigerant? Motor run with low refrigerant will nor work effectively. Please evaluate and get it fixed.

There is an overload on the compressor that goes bad and prevents any power to the unit. Any parts store should carry it.

That is the compressor starting relay trying to start the cooling cycle and the overload protector kicking off. You can try installing a new start device for about $50.00 but you are most likely looking at a compressor replacement which runs about $400.00

Sorry for the bad news

Sadly these old freezers use way too much electricity. You will be better off junking this one and purchasing a good used or brand new one.

Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.

It may be a sensor. Don't replace a control center unless you have determined it's bad. The sensor has to be wired to the board controller. Usually smaller cable with 2 conductors. If it has an alarm then there may g e as many as 6 or 8 or more wires going to the board. Using your wire diagram Find the sensor for temp. Sometimes the ohm value is given on the wire diagrams. You will also need the temperature at the point the sensor is connected inside. Your ohm reading should be close to the temp given in a table or from the manufacturer. If it's close sensor ok. Take next step.

Does it have a high temperature alarm? I have an older Kenmore with this that requires a 9 volt backup battery to activate the alarm if the power goes off. If the battery goes dead over time, the alarm won't shut off even with the power on. My battery is behind a small door on the left side end of the plastic floor dress plate on the bottom front of the freezer. I use a 9 volt lithium battery myself. I have a backup generator so it doesn't have a lot of time to run on the battery. Where an alkaline battery lasts me about 18 months, This lithium battery has been in for 3 years and shows no sign of failing yet. They have a shelf life of 15 years or more all though they won't last that long in this application. It's worth not coming home and not finding the dogs going wild due to the high pitched beep. Good luck.
