Most refrigerators have about a 70% duty cycle, depending on ambient room temperature, content, etc. If your unit is indeed running all the time as you state, it may be low on refrigerant, have an inefficient compressor, or an air flow issue. Make sure there is no frost buildup in the freezer, the fans are running, door seals are good. If all above looks good and the temps are ok, you may just be catching it on a cycle on time and not noticing it cycling on and off, especially it being in the garage. If the temps are questionable, my money is on low refrigerant level.

Try defrosting the fridge. Check the cold plate at the back of the food compartment once the fridge has been defrosted and turned back on again. The cold plate in the freezer (around the walls) will be cold to touch as will the cold plate at the back of the fridge,

Kelvinator Opal CS 390 F door has dropped down on handle side.


My sister has the same fridge model. We've removed the door and the bottom bracket supporting the hinge had collapsed up inside the door. We're going to cut out a piece of steel (3-4mm thick) and glue it along the bottom of the door in order for the door hinge to insert into something solid. Looks like it's a weak point in the door construction. Pity Kelvinator wouldn't acknowledge the problem and come up with a solution (other than replacing the door at $340 - which is what we were quoted).
