OK thank you ~ from what you have told me you have one of the following two issues ~a. The thermostat is faulty and is causing the temperature to be incorrectly regulated.b. The unit is short of refrigerant, this causes the unit to constantly run without switching off because the thermostat (which is sensing something like -15C to maintain a refrigerator temperature of say +2C is not reaching this minus temperature through lack of refrigerant. Thermostat you can do yourself ~ recharge of refrigerant requires a fridge engineer. Would you now kindly rate the information given by selecting from the star rating system at the top of the page. Once done all further questions are free of charge, do come back to me if you have further queries. Thank You for using JA and have a great evening ~ Ian
