Hotpoint fridge freezer model No FFUQ1810/P

Twice maybe 3 times in its lifetime it has suddenly decided to defrost completely with total loss off the contents. It is then cleaned and restarted it will then work perfectly until the next time say in 12 months. There is no obvious reason for this, as in say loss of the power supply or alteration in the temperature. Help or ideas needed please as Hotpoint have been unable to offer any sensible advice. Many Thanks

Might be worth checking the circulation fan is working properly and not blocked or stopped by - say - ice buildup of something poking in and jamming it.
It might also be worth checking the defrost heater and associated thermal fuse are OK.
