It stopped freezing -- just warm air!
Disconnect AC power and remove the dial gauge. Remove three racks to reach the back panel inside the freezer by removing split stoppers on one side. Remove all the hex screws and rubber insulation pads to expose the cooling unit. Remove the old thermostat from the cooling pipe and install the new unit. Make sure that the thermostat bracket fits tightly around the cooling pipe; otherwise, it cannot read the correct temperature. Reverse the procedure.

Freezer ran all the time
The repair is pretty straight forward check video with this site . If your fan is working do not replace it, that was not the problem that was suggested. The thermostat sensor solved the problem.

My parents (85) freezer was warm/ ice in the bottom
I looked at the other reviews and decided to buy both the defrost thermostat and the defrost timer. I told mom I would try to fix her freezer for mothers day. After cleaning up, I checked the defrost heater as was described by others and it had resistance. I the installed both the defrost thermostat and timer.I plugged in the freezer and after about 8 hours I had mom put some water on the top shelf. The next morning was Mothers day and the water was frozen. This site and the reviews really helped. They are both very happy.

Ran too long
Easily removed panel inside the upright freezer on the back wall. Moved panel to side to keep control attached. Removed old thermostat with needle nose pliers and fingers; set new thermostat in and connected wires. Cut fingers a bit because of sharp fins on refrigerant tubes, so be careful. Reattached panel.

Freezer and refrigerator not cold enough
Repair was very easy - thermostat a little more involved and time consuming due to frost build-up and lag time to permit defrost prior o part replacement. Defrost timer involved removal to two screws and one bolt; it was necessary to pry timer electric prongs loose from plastic connector, but easily accomplished by placing flat-head screw driver into space between prongs and connecter and twisting flat-head gently to loosen connection; Overall both parts were easy replacements - still evaluating if parts corrected the problem - may just be time to replace the appliance due to age.
