My 6 month old Whirlpool standup freezer is not freezing anymore.

Model EV160NZTQ02.

The thermometer is only going to 42 inside and some food is defrosting and some is solid.

 

THat seems to indicate lack of air flow, so I pulled out all of the food and found that vent in the back was iced over.

I pulled off the cover and found plenty of ice on the coils.yWr7H3

Could this possibly of happened if my daughter left the door slightly open for a few hours a couple of days ago or do I probably have a defrost problem?

Any pointers on what to check first if I have a defrost problem?

I am interested in figuring out what is wrong and I will probably repair myself rather than waste time waiting on someone else.

 

Does that amount of ice coverage indicate that I have a defrost problem or could it have been from her leaving the door cracked open for a while?

 

What should I look at to start troubleshooting the problem?

Is the evaporator motor ( W10236142 ) operating when the compressor is running?????...The defrost timer should be in the control box with the cold control ( P/N 3-81329 ).....The heavy frost on the evaporator looks more like a defrost problem then leaving the door open for a few hours.................Keep us posted................
