Question about Refrigerators
Welcome to fixya.
You said, Your freezer will not stop running.
What is the brand freezer and the model number?
How old is the freezer?
Freezers are supposed to go on and off as needed to keep the temperature at a consistent .
We call this cycling on and off.
The problem sounds like a malfunctioning thermostat.
Left like this it will eventually burn out the compressor!
Here is an interesting report I just read!
Repair or replace your appliances?
When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator
It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

If your freezer is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;

When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your freezer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.

Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new rfreezer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive freezer
six or more years old.
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a freezer you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.
