Question about Maytag MTB1976HR Top Freezer Refrigerator
Sounds like your condenser is icing up and is not blowing enough cold air into the frig compartment to satisfy the thermostat.That is why the compressor with not shut off. You probably have a defrost problem due to a bad defrost heater of defrost thermostat (different from control thermostat) One solution is to shut of the frig to allow ice to melt off and restart to see if it repeats the same problem. Hope this helps

Tips for a great answer:
Check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the freezer (evaporator) fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coils (under the unit) for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan (under the unit) to see if it is running.
If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. These things usually require dismantling the freezer and other areas of the refrigerator to be checked.
You could defrost the freezer by disconnecting the power to the refrigerator and letting it sit for at least 24 hours with both doors wide open to allow the frost to melt completely but it will build up again in 1-2 weeks and start the warming up again.
