Freezing up in duct system frig part
Have you checked the heater/defroster element within the freezer? It may be related. When mine failed I was doing the defrosting with a hair blower. Over time (several days) the frost would build up on the freezer coils and the air couldn't flow as it should....so the thermostat wasn't getting cooled enough and it relayed the information to the cooling system, causing the frige to run all the time. Since it was clogged with frost, the frige was constantly trying to cool itself and the frost problem would get so bad that things in the freezer began to melt due to a lack of cold air circulation. After the heater/defroster element was replaced, frost would melt during the defrost cycle (as it should) and airflow/circulation was restored, allowing the thermostat to be cooled properly. Then the freezer coil was able to 'rest' when it should instead of constantly freezing to meet the demand for cold air in the frige. Hope this makes sense...and helps solve your issue.
