Try to mount the bulb directly to the evaporator. Maybe it will shut down faster and solve the probo.

it runs all the time and warms inside when the unit is turned off

that sure sounds like the light is staying on inside when the door is closed, is the light on with the door closed?

if so that incandesent bulb is a tiny heater, thats why the unit gets hot inside when its turned off, and probably why its freezing things, the bulb will warm the control housing and thermostat and trick it into thinking the compartment is not cold enough

there should be a lil metal bracket on the bottom of the door to activate the light switch, these get bent or broken over time
