Is the evaporator fan blade turning the right way? It is shaped to cup the air and blow it away from the motor and into the fridg and freezer sections.

Either replace the blade with the correct one, or take the motor apart, if possible, and reverse the armature.

i was able to change the fan blades direction as recommended, however the frig still stayed on even after reaching 39degrees on top shelf and 21 degrees inside the bottom fresh food bins. the freezer temp is 4 degrees. the frig has run in excess of 18 hours without stopping since making the change of the evaporator fans direction of flow. what else could keep the compressor on continually?
thanks for your input

Remove the lower crisper drawers and push in the door switch if needed to start the fan. If cold air is blowing out the lower vent, you have the air flow reversed, must have mounted the fan motor upside down!!

at this point i have had the fan orienated both directions of flow. i saw in the schematic that there is a contact in the defrost timer that must be made for the compressor to work. is that a possibility?
thanks

The evaporator fan motor must blow cold air from the freezer into the upper
vent in the refrigerator so the cold control gets cold air directly from the freezer. If not, the fridg will never shut down.

Verify the cold control will turn off the compressor. If so, that's probably ok, then measure the stabilized freezer temperature and post.
