Check for badly bent fins or obstructed/dirt impacted fins on the outside of the unit. Could also be low on gas. Try setting the t/stat to various settings see if its turning off/on at higher settings, if it does most likelt stat is OK. Also make sure you drian is clear.
Can't solve your problem, but just to report we have exactly the same issue, a huge block of ice forms on the upper rear panel. The compressor seems to be running 24h, not matter where the 'thermostat' is set.
I suspect that there was/are a faulty batch of thermostats. Or (since there is no metal cooling plate to bolt it to) that the T/Stat probe has somehow come adrift from its correct sensing area and is not correctly sensing the temperature inside the fridge.
If I get to the bottom of the problem, I will re-post here.
Bad thermostat or T stat set too low. Set the T stat in the freezer between 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 and see if that helps. Same goes for the "cold control" in the refrigerator part of the cabinet. It should be set at about the same setting as the T stat and then adjusted for temperature once the unit settles down. If the fridge just "keeps on running" and never shuts off except to defrost, the T stat is bad and needs replaced. As far as the ice machine. that's a common problem. Don't waste your money getting it fixed, it's not worth it because it'll just break again. A self contained home ice machine is cheap and lasts forever. It makes more ice faster and can be put anywhere you want it.
check wiring into outlet and at breaker that feeds outlet. you may be losing high volts at or to the switch. if possible check power into the stat when the condition occurs. this will telll you if stat is bad or power into it aka the outlet is bad. you may be jiggling wires in the outlet enough to fix short term each time you replug to outlet or get a good heavy extension cord and plug in else where to seee if problem goes away.Good luck
