Nope.Not it.The fan at back of the condenser coils blows air across the coils when the compressor runs.Once the it completes the cycle,it stops running.Clean condenser coils is good,but won't make the fridge run constantly.Seems your only problem here,that would force the fridge to do this,is cracked or partially missing door seals on either door.Sure,it freezes stuff,but try putting an icecream bar in the freezer till should be frozen.It will be soft still,even after overnight.Check the door seals,and be sure the front of the unit is tipped back farther at top than is the bottom,this insures the doors close and stay that way.One half inch difference works fine with the top of fridge back farther than than bottom.Also,did you check the freezer behind the panels and make sure there's no ice behind them before you plugged it in?Doubtful because isn't a normal thing to do.But if the freezer was not completely defrosted when you acquired it,this could cause a problem also.These 25 and above cubic foot units are designed for Deli's.We get them used because someone had a problem with them.Like your situation.Panels are easily removed and replaced to clear the ice or defrost further.

It should shut off after satisfying the thermostat control setting. The control could be bad or the refrigerator is not cooling enough. Check to see if the coils under the refrigerator are not blocked with lint and the fan by the compressor in back is turning. Also check if the fan blade is not dirty with lint. These things could cause the refrigerator to run constantly.

Danby dual zone wine fridge.....temperature is fine...but it never shuts off.....ever?!

I would be careful using it. Chances are that it does not have enough freeon in it, and that will make it run all the time, it could catch on fire from the over heating of the motor.

I've got a JCB Compressor, ( inherited from deceaced relative ).Code 1221750000 Serial No D20406741 I'd like a manual for it ALSO, I need to know if it's suposed to cut out at full runs...

they are to operate like your clark. the pop off valve is to prevent too much pressure building up and exploding the tank. as far as the manual try manuals online or just do a Google search.
also its probable your pressure switch that is going bad or has gone bad.
