freezers are appliances that we count on to get our food cold and fresh. while you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, i suggest you verify your complete model number and attach it to this thread. have a nice day!

thank you for your question. i can understand your concern about the freezer running constantly. unfortunately, without the model number, i will only be able to provide some general information. first, check the temperature inside the freezer. to check the temperature, place a thermometer between some packages. air temperature is not a good check. the normal freezer temperature is 0 to 5 degrees. if it is in this range, it indicates that it will be shutting off at times or the temperature would be down below zero degrees. in this case, usually adjusting the control to a warmer setting will correct this. if the temperature is above 10 degrees, this is too warm and causing it to run all the time. in this case, it could lead to a problem in the sealed system. also check for excessive frosting. if this is taking place, it would mean the unit needs to be defrosted. as the frost builds, the temperature will get warmer. i hope this will help you.
if you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a sears technician. here is a link for the website: sears home services .
