Frigidaire Freezer (Model #FFU17FC4AW2)

Back in February 2009 I replaced the controller on the freezer, with the assistance of the gurus on this site. Well, here we are a little over two years later and my freezer is acting up again. Last week we had a "thaw", so I checked out the defrost timer and advanced it to the "off" position. A little while later I checked it out and it was blowing cold air. We waited a few days and everything seemed fine, so we started putting food back, in between patting me on the back ( ). Yesterday my wife noticed that things were mushy again and I was no longer a genius ( ). The timer appeared to be moving, but I noticed that the compressor was very hot. I unplugged the unit, then I pulled off the controller that I had replaced two years ago and noticed that it was "rattling" again. (As per the posting two years ago, that meant it needed replacing.)
Before I go out and replace the controller again, I was wondering if the "stuck" timer, which I had "un-stuck", would have caused this, or does the hot compressor point to something else.

Defrost Timer wouldn't cause it..
either the Start Relay just went bad again,
OR the Compressor is going bad ..
