Is it worth the risk to buy an upright freezer with this problem? Is there a likely culprit and would it be a relatively simple fix? It is a 20 cu ft upright with model number WZF79R20DW0G?

Seller says "Keeps throwing itself into defrost mode. Don’t know how to fix it"

See inside of your appliance - diagrams and part photos for virtually every model.

It really depends on what the freezer is doing. It could be the compressor is failing to start or it could be a problem with the electronic control. They are not cheap. I'd look for something else. Unless the price is $0 and you want something to work on.
