Freezer Intermitment

On the road right now...had what might have been just a glitch but the freezer stopped freezing....temp was up to the point of moisture forming inside. I switched to propane and it started working again and then I switched back to AC and it continued to work as if this writing....I have a DM2852. Any thoughts??

If you look at your manual it will show that after so many hours of running it will go into a defrost mode to help reduce the ice buildup.
Mine is after running 40 hours without turning off.
If you turn off the power and back on it will reset the time to zero again.

It seems the freezer stayed cool enough to keep the ice but not the ice cream and the frig temp rose to 49 degrees but again it was intermittent...I did shut it off for 5 minutes and restarted it with no change in the problem. When we got home I shut it down over night and fired it back up and it's holding the ice cream just fine....frig temp is down to 31 degrees. We usually keep our frig going since we go out so often and turning something like this on and off as often as we go out is an unnecessary strain and wear and tear like turning your AC off when it's hits the desired temp rather than letting the thermostat do it's job or another known fact if turning a light on and off kills it's life span though that is more necessary. We have had it just over a month and it's been on all that time....in testing mode now before we go out again.

In conditions of very high humidity the fridge will do as you have indicated. Some individuals install auxilliary fans to blow across the cooling fins in the interior to aleviate this situation. Seems to help.
