Mine did the same thing two years ago. Sadly, no reset button... it just leaked the refrigerant out :(

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

The normal cycle is: Your compressor will turn on to raise the freezer temperature 20 degrees F. above the set temperature, and then the compressor will shut off, Until the freezer temperature drops 20 degrees F. below the set temperature and again the compressor will turn on.

One of the main problems with this type of freezer is the door gasket becomes crushed over time or the door is so thin it becomes deformed.

Do not try to replace the door gasket. You have to soak the new gasket in hot water for 1/2 hour and then form it on the door.

If you notice a gap in the corner of the door - pull hard on it to get it flush.

Recondition the door gasket - With a hair dryer and a kitchen spatula, heat the gasket and try to expand the gasket by pulling out with the spatula.

You can purchase a special freezer lubricant. Be sure not to over do it. It can make the door hard to open. P/N 542638

The defrost timer is faulty or you have a defrost circuit short, unplug remove back panel inside the freezer and check for a short in the heater and defrost thermostat.

It may take some time for the icemaker to get the water after a filter change or there could be other problems

Its either a bad defrost timer not kicking on, bad main control board or the temp switch. Sorry not much help but the only way to really tell is check with a ohlm meteor and eliminate each part.
