I'm a cheap guy that wants to try and fix things myself.  I just bought a used freezer and plugged it in and it immediately started getting cold...so far so good.  But after 24 hours the compressor is still running non stop and the sides are very hot to the touch.  I'm afraid the defrost timer may not be turning and it's somehow stuck in some defrost mode or maybe the thermostat isn't telling the compressor when to shut off.  Is it normal for the sides to get hot like that?  The inside of the freezer is cold and the food is staying frozen.

Clean the dog hair out of the condenser and make sure the condenser fan starts running normally after you remove the mouse carcass stuck in the blade. Should be good to go.
