Montgomery Ward Chest Freezer Cold But Never Shuts Off

I've got an old 1987 Montgomery Ward 15.8 cu. ft. Chest Freezer Model #: 85058/85157 that is running all of the time. It just started doing this at the beginning of the week. The temp inside of the freezer is at -2 below.
Turning the themostat control to the off setting does cause the freezer does shut off. When putting it back to the normal setting, it waits about a minute comes back on but never cycles back off again. I've located a replacement cold themostat for it if that is the problem. Thanks for the help!

The older chest freezers can be very reliable. The problem is finding parts and repair information. I see you found a thermostat. While you wait for the expert to review and provide instructions you can check a similar question answered previously. It is not your model but the advice is pretty general for most freezers. I attached it in the first link below and the second link is to Sears Parts Direct for parts if needed.
