Is there any frost on the back panel of your freezer?
Also, take the back panel off and take a picture of the frost pattern on the evaporator.

A picture of the thermostat may be helpful too.

Does your thermistor have a black silicon where the wires meet the thermistor?

Provided there is no problem with the defrost circuit indicated by a heavy frost buildup on the evaporator and the condenser fan motor is running, there could be an issue with the motorized damper P/N WR60X10215 (comes with the thermistor).  Also check to make sure the ice dispenser door is closing properly.  I usually find the solenoid that opens that door P/N WR62X10055 corrodes and doesn't allow the door to close and seal properly.

If you have a nice evenly frost pattern on your whole evaporator, it is unlikely you have a sealed system problem.

Is your evaporator solid ice or lightly frosted? a picture up loaded on photobucket and posted here can greatly help determine the next step.
