Really admire your persistence in dealing with this problem!

I think I'll try to fashion a similar deflector on top of the fins, as I can see where heat would get trapped in the space above.

Also, with mine, at the top of the wooden baffle (piece of panelling) there's a space of about an inch and a half (horizontally) between the baffle and the fins. I'm wondering if much of the airflow is taking the path of least resistance and just exiting the outer vent without even entering the cooling fins.
I may take a piece of aluminum and extend the baffle up a bit further and bend it inward toward the cooling fins.

I was concerned about airflow too. I can only assume that's why the paneling was in place, to force air over the fins before exiting. However my freezer is cold so I guess the upper fins are OK.
