    Have any pictures?
    You are not opening the door every 30 minutes to have a peek?....right?
    You checked for any air leaks?
    On a warm day or when the room temp is very warm and you open the door and cold things inside will sweat or get a little frost on them, this is normal.

    this fridge has been working fine for several years, then all of a sudden, it's malfunctioning. The thermostat tested bad, but replacing it, did not help. Ice on back wall, shelves, top, and now side walls is getting worse.

    Tried to edit the statement about the timer sending power to the df stat. Got "Invalid post" or something like that.
    Anyway, shouldn't the power to the HEATER be cut completely, if the stat is working properly?

    Once the temp has been reached on the defrost stat it should open and the defrost heater should shut off yes.

    Default Frost Build-up

    So long as you did not notice frost build-up in any of the corners then, you are good to go. The compressor is one of your major nightmare repair jobs.
