My father thinks that his KitchenAide fridge runs and doesn't cycle off. I've checked everything that I can on it and am unable to find any problems. I told him that if ran all the time the milk would be frozen but he's convinced that something is wrong with the unit.

Does anyone have the service manual showing how to get this into diagnostic mode so that I can see if there really is a problem possibly with the thermistors or thermostat board.

Any help is appreciated.

First, I'd check (and post) the Fridge and Freezer temperatures,
then get (and post) a picture of the frost pattern of the Evaporator Coils inside the Freezer

Thanks for the tip Reg, but I think you're missing my point.
There is nothing wrong with the fridge. Temps are normal. No frost buildup on the evap coil. I checked all that. The only thing I found was a minor buildup of dust on the condensor coil and I vacuumed that out. I just want to run diagnostics to convince my father that there is no problems.

does it cycle OFF ?
Running diagnostic won't tell him that...
Evaporator frost pattern would tell something
If Fridge / Freezer temps are OK, then turning the Cold Control down a little should turn the Compressor OFF
