Kenmore upright freezer high temp light on

I have a Kenmore upright freezer model 253.28052808. The high temp warning light and alarm has randomly been going off. When it started I put a pretty accurate electronic thermometer in it. The freezer maintains temp at around -3 degrees f. Shutting the freezer off will reset the alarm for a while, but pretty soon it will go on again. I have noticed that it seems like the fan is always running when I check it. I'm pretty handy but don't know much about freezers and have no idea really where to start troubleshooting. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forums.

The alarm should not sound until the tem rises over 23 degrees.
Do you have the freezer with the LED readout ?

I have to check further but it sounds like it may be a defective control board.

It does have a screen on the control panel that reads the coldness setting from 0-7
