Question about Refrigerators
My GE refrigerator motor runs nearly all the time; only rarely does it turn off, and that's not very long. I've checked the door switch and nothing happens. Moreover, when I adjust the thermostat even to the highest level, there's still only water - not ice - in the ice tray. I am however able to turn it off with the thermostat. The model number is: TBX14SAXKRWH
Door seal problems and incorrect settings will make the unit run continuously
fridges should be set around 31/2 to 4 and freezers around 3-4
if the freezer is too cold the difference between on and off is the amount of thermal leakage i the insulation
so that means if the setting for the freezer is at max, then the temp at full cold is equal to what is being lost and so it runs all of the time
if however the setting is only at what is need to keep frozen then the loss through he insulation can be for a longer period of time so the unit has a chance to turn off
same for the fridge but the setting can be a bit lower depending on the door cycles, period of time the door is held open and the ambient temperature
The saying ---know what you want before opening the door really does mean how long the unit runs for to recover the temperature

Check to see if the drain at the bottom of your freezer is plugged. When the refrigerator goes on defrost, the water has to go somewhere. Look below the coils in the freezer section and see if there is ice in the drain.

Cut off a piece of line and go to a good hardware store, they can show you how to fix it. Need a coupling, and a nut and ferrel. House water line goes on one end of coupling, nut and ferrel on the broken water line on fridge. A good hardware store will be able to show you how to fix.

the icemaker is not making ice due to the fact that the valve solenoid may need replacing.
check the water line into the icemaker, to make sure that you don't have a water leak.
the reason the fridge is running is due to the fact that it's trying to remove as much warm air out as possible.
i would have a technician look at it.
