You may have a loose connection somewhere.

Start with using an extension cord to plug it in in somewhere else.
If that solves the issue then open the receptacle box and look for a loose
wirenut or loose wire on the device or loose jaws within the device.

ETA: If not... then the (still likely to be a loose connection) problem is inside the machine.

I think the problem is in the thermostat if it is freezing the food on the top shelf too. Check the thermostat settings and look at the connections.
