On a chest freezer, frost always accumulates around the top perimeter first because the warmer moist air comes in contact with that area first once the door is opened. More frequent defrosting may be the answer.

Yes, it could be.

Like all light bulbs, it'll burn out eventually.

This sounds as if its a start relay problem. They are attached to the compressor
You will need the model and serial number to get a new one at the appliance
parts store. They are usually under a plastic cover on the side of the compressor
and the cover is retained by a metal spring clip. Remember to unplug unit before
replacing this part. The model and serial number should be located near the compressor.

Good day,
You can't. They are bonded to the inner walls of the machine and totally inaccessible. Normal for most freezers.

switch on and leave it to freeze.approx 24hours.buzzing could be compressor working overtime to get cold.or in fact the freezer is not on a level surface.

Check the bulb, check the tabs within the socket, check the door light switch.

Please, unplug fridge when testing these. We'd like to hear from you again.

Some of the PTC relays just give out for no apparent reason. (the brown ones more than any other) But in your case you can see physical signs of overheating. I would suspect the compressor has seized up, or has a shorted winding.

Don't hit or punch the freezer walls ,just unplugged and let the frost melts and this water will go through the drain down to an evaporative pan.Make sure the drain is not clogh if it is clogh put hot water into it or blow it with air pressure.

Did it reach the desired temperature before it Quit. If so then it does not need to run until the temperture drops several degrees below setting.

If water drains out, then there is always a blockage somewhere on drain line.

Defrost the unit completely to get rid of ice building inside drain lines.

If that does not work , then the drain line must be unlocked using a flexible shaft.

There are numerous methods to defrost freezers, from placing buckets of hot water inside to using hair blowers. I like to unplug freezer, unload freezer, use a plastic putty knife to scrape excess frost off walls if in a bit of a hurry, and to let it just thaw out, using the drain port in the bottom of the freezer, hooked up to the garden hose adapter that came with the freezer to run the water to a drain.

The chest freezers are a bit more reliable than an upright (in my opinion) and are more energy efficient, but do make it harder to find and organize items in the freezer. FYI: Virtually any brand name freezer on the market in the US was built by either Frigidaire in St. Cloud, MN, W.C. Woods Co., from Canada, or Haier Co. in China.

I would plug it into a different plug in - not one that is on the same circuit that it is plugged into now. If the plug in is working for other things, it still may be bad and not able to handle the load of the freezer. If your freezer will not work on a completely different circuit, then there could be something wrong with the freezer, but it is not likely since two of them should not be bad. Seems to me more like an electrical problem in your location. Hope this helps you, Rick
