There are only a few scenarios where the water is coming from to freeze there.

Condensation from putting food in there which is warm, especially anything not wrapped or bagged.

Defrost water drain blocked. Look for a channel at the back or within the blower unit.

Badly fitting, split or worn out door seal. This lets warm moist air from the room into the cabinet which then freezes.

Excessive frost build up reducing efficient circulation of air, or overloading.

Finally, kids spilling water!

thermostats are usually a "on/off" switch just as a simple light switch. Ohms on a defrost timer is not very specific. It is basically a switch that turns heaters on and off while keeping the compressor off during the defrost cycle. Your thermostat may be sticking/hanging up.

I have had a few of these, and others of the same ilk.
Your problem should be air leakage into the machine.
Take a thicker piece of paper, not cardboard, and try to slide it around the gasket where the door gasket contacts the front of the freezer.
The gasket should be firm enough to prevent the paper from sliding. Wherever you can move the paper, you could have a air leak.
Most of these have no adjustment in the latch to tighten the door. Sometimes a new gasket will solve the problem, sometime a new door will.
P.S. Twice I have tied a new freezer to a refrigerator dolly to move it and have accidentally warped the door, and they cannot be straightened. :-(
God bless your efforts.

repairs should be performed by a qualified technician. if there isn't ice in the ice bucket located in the freezer you have a water flow problem. if there is water going to the filter and nothing out of the freezer then you have a clogged freezer replace it. if these things are ok then yes it could be the electronic control. filter failure is a common problem.
