I have a freezer that just keeps running even though everything in it is hard as a rock. The temperature shows 10 degrees which is obviously incorrect. I had a tech look at once already, but he couldn't find anything.

check your user hand book as most fridge settings work the lower the number the colder the setting
so 1 is around 1-3 degrees , 3 is 4-6 degrees, 4 is 7-10 degrees
it is the freezer that works 1 is minus 5 and 5 is minus 20 degrees
it would explain why everything is freezing up
it would also explain the non stop running as the fridge is battling to keep the low setting
Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
If it runs then that cold control is the problem.
Leave it plugged in. It won't over freeze. If the outside air is cold then it won't need to run as much to bring down the temp-nature is doing that. So when the weather gets warm it will run to keep everything frozen. Hope this helps. Google burdfrenzy
hotpoint ffa90, I have fridge and freezer problem, non of them are keeping the required temperature though the fridge temperature is showing the right temperature but not cold and the freezer is not freezing as it is contstant between -2 to -5 but it should be
-22, the fast freeze bottom does not fridge either, it does not take instruction.
most have 2 controls in the refrigerator side. 1 is a thermostat or cold control the other is a air damper. the damper allows the flow of air from the freezer to the freshfod side. if it is closed all the way you are keeping all the cold air in the freezer and that will make it colder. most cold controls monitor the air in the fresh food section and regulate the temp. and some controls are confusing and the damper actually works in the reverse of what you think. but if the unit is always running you may have a bad cold control and it is sensing the temp in the refrigerator side is not col enough, so it will continue to run until is can be satisfyed. check the control to make sure it is shutting of if you turn it up. if not I would replace it. I dont know how old the unit is but you also may have some electronics that control the temp to.
