Try clearing all vents - inside (make sure vents not covered - in fridge and freezer) and outside (gently vacuum - the coil areas in the back and bottom of fridge)
May be overworking itself to stay cold
There is probably an ice build up between the two sides of the appliance. There may also be a problem with the damper unit which controls the cold air coming from the freezer side to the fridge. The fridge is controlled by the freezer. Dependant on appliance. The door opens and closes letting the cold air go into the fridge and when the fridge is cold enough the door will close agin. This is not something that you will see happening it is normally concealed behing a diffuser.
You are probably right that it is always running. This is because the thermostat/sensor has gone bad. The fridge adjusts by a door that allows air to come from the freezer to the fridge side. Therefore this will still work...
You will need to replace or have the thermostat replaced....
A fan controlled by a thermostat is required to move the cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator for cooling. Use a volt meter testing the voltage on the fan. If you have voltage it is a bad fan. If you do not get a voltage test the thermostat. If it measures zero ohms short the thermal switch or if it is a short open one lead. If the fan works replace the thermal switch.
Possibly something was spilled and it got to the door gasket. Clean the door gasket area with warm soapy water. In the door there is nothing critical to the system operation that should cause the condition you have.
