Question about Refrigerators
It sounds like you have it pinpointed with the control being the problem. There is an adjustment, but it's complicated, and there's different types. A refrigerator is like politics..you have an obvious annoyance, there, but often the core cause is less obvious. Ambient room temperatures in winter dropping lower tend to trick a fridge into thinking it's time to shut off inappropriately..the control sensor in the milk-side says it's safe; while in the freezer, your ice cream is doomed..sort of like the congress and senate, if you know what I'm saying. Your problem, however, is the opposite, as your 'ice-box' doesn't stop running at all (right? yes, in fact you better go catch it before it runs away, ha-ha!)..well. Something simple that can cause your problem is plugged condenser coils which are next to the compressor. You can see them by removing the cardboard cover in back. ALWAYS REPLACE THE COVER. The coils are either a box-type or they spread all around underneath. If they are full of dust and pet hair, and chewing-gum foil wrappers, etc., get a long wire bristle brush and poke it around to free the coils of all that air-flow restriction, and that will make a big difference..Also, voting out all the incumbents. Happy New Year. And G-d bless America

See if you have some paperwork on how to test, etc. located in a plastic bag taped up to the underside of the fridge. Pull the front vent cover off and you should see (feel) a bag taped up there with the test paperwork in it. If you don't have it let us know and maybe I can email it to you.

SOURCE: freezer temp too high
Air must circulate in the freezer when working properly. I am guessing the recirculating vent in the freezer may be blocked which would not bring warmer air back to the coil to be cooled. As for the door, I theorize there may be too much negative pressure which pulls the door in while you were pulling out ... don't have solution yet.
