freezer icing up

We have a flagstaff 21 ft microlite FBRS. We are very new to camping. We took a 6 week trip last year and everything was fine. Took it to the east coast for 3 weeks this year and towards the end of the trip the freezer started to ice up on the back. And along the top of the door and top of freezer outside where door closes over it. We stopped and had it checked and they found no leaks in the seals. I thawed it, plugged it back in and immediately the icing started again. As I said, this did not happen last fall or until the end of the trip this summer so I know there is something wrong. Also, I had sliced frozen bananas in the freezer and they were solid until this started. They turned to mush but ice cubes and meat all stayed frozen. Anyone else experience this?

drain might have a spider web or something simular in it. OR it could be packed to full to allow air to circulate (this is my problem).

Thanks nuisance, but I can't be because it's packed too full because I emptied and defrosted it, turned it back on and it started icing up right away.

Put a dollar bill between the seal and the refer. If you can pull it out without much pressure your seal is leaking.
