The freezer or evaporator fan runs whenever the temperature controls is closed and the compressor is running. The control may not be getting satisfied and continues to call for cooling or there is a possibility that there is a short in the wiring. If the refrigerator temperature is not below 40 degrees it cold mean there is a problem with the sealed system.

Motor wont stay idle need to keep pumping gas pedal to keep motor running.

If it smoothly idles down to shut off it could be the throttle stop screw needs to be ran out a little. If it runs rough it could be a stuck float or needle Lots of times a good soak and cleaning will fix a problem. don't use ethanol gas without some sort of conditioner.

Turn the control all the way back to the OF position. If the ice box still won't shut off then the control is bad.

ALLOW MELTING THE ICE IN THE WHOLE EVAP. REALLY IMPORTANT

Freezer not freezing, and the panel between the fridge and the freezer gets very hot

The condensor fan motor is probably not running. The condensor fan keeps the compresor cooled, if the compresor gets to hot, it shuts down until it cools off and tuns back on, but will not keep temp. Heat exchange lines go in the panel between the doors to serve as a heater so the doors dont freeze shut, but when the compresor overheats, so do those lines. That would be why that panel gets so hot. Both problems will be resolved with a new condensor fan motor ( located by the compresor).

Freezer fan does not come on . Thought that replacing the DC motor would "fix" the problem. It did not. The compressor works as the freezer gets cold, but the fan never works so the refrigerator side does...

You have a bad main control board . The board in back of the refrigerator , behind an 8"X10" panel . Keep your old motor to play with . A small 9 volt battery will run it . I may have found 1 bad dc freezer fan motor in all the time i've worked on the new style G E refrig.

It's not too difficult to remove the ice maker. A few screws and the unit will unplug from the fridge. Then you can see why the bar is not turning it off. If it's really broken, check for parts or a replacement unit. Meanwhile the fridge can keep on working, and you can use trays to make ice.

This kind of a problem could be caused by;
The system has a leak and is not reaching the shut off temperature of the thermostat.
The compressor is worn out and not pumping gas fast enough to reach shut off temperature.
Dirty condenser not allowing the system to get rid of the heat.
