This freezer quit freezing, I tested and  replaced the defrost sensor, but it didn't help. Fan is running, compressor is hot. Could it be compressor controller and or capacitor or door control module. Unit is abut 3 years old so I'm hoping it's nt the compressor.

Check the evaporator to see if covered in heavy frost. If, take a picture of the evaporator after the fridge has been running for a while, then take another one 45 minutes later and post both pictures here.

then we want to see the frost pattern on the evap to check if refrigerant is passing through it. Pictures at two different points in time helps assure we are not seeing the evap right after a defrost period.

btw is the compressor warm and vibrating, very Hot and vibrating or just hot?

Are you hearing the hum-click cha-cha?  Periodically hums then clicks off?
