The motor should cut in and out as controlled by the thermostat. Assuming your freezer is actually working and is cooling down, try the following. If you turn the thermostat down you should hear a click and the motor should stop. If there is no click before it gets to the lowest setting then either the thermostat is faulty (so won't cut out) or the freezer has not dropped to a temperature that is registered by the thermostat (it is too warm). A faulty thermostat is indicated by excessive freezing because it doesn't know when to stop the cooling process. A freezer that is too warm means the cooling process is ineffective and may, for example, require re-gassing.

Have you any means to measure the fridge / freezer temperatures, which should be 5 degrees C and -18 degrees C respectively - (put a cup of water into the fridge for 24 hours then test that temp)
If the temperatures are above that, this is an alarm code condition and you will need to look at the operation of the cooling system. For example, is the motor running constantly? can you hear a circulation fan running in the freezer cabinet when the motor is running? Does there appear to be a buildup of ice at the rear of the freezer cabinet panel?
As a first aid sort of check, try removing the food from the freezer and turning everything off for 24 hours which should manually defrost the unit. If everything works ok afterwards, but then fails again a day or two later it may be an automatic defrosting problem.
If the compressor is running 24/7 and getting very hot, you may have major cooling system faults which will require a service engineer call - or replacement!

This is an alarm code condition, and if you are saying the internal temperature is ok, i.e. -18 degrees C, it may be a problem with one of the internal temperature sensors. In these conditions the freezer reverts to a timed on and off situation to preserve frozen food, and ignores temperature measurement from the sensors. It is possible to test the sensors from the control electronic PCB but will probably need a Electrolux technician to do this. If the internal temerature is above -18 C then could be a cooling system fault.

Sounds like switches in control are bad. Dispenser control most likely needs replacing. Also air in line will cause an overrun issue.

Hello - Sounds like the power outage possibly caused a communication problem with the control board to the refrigerator not responding. From what you explained in your comment, if the refrigerator seems dead I would strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. If the unit is not cooling in either section of the appliance, unit can be experiencing some form of sealed system issue as well. This can include the compressor not working correctly, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines not at the correct levels to properly cool. If the compressor is running, humming, or even a little warm then that is typically normal. However if the compressor is running hot, then it is over working and the issue could be before the compressor in the evap fan, coil or coolant lines. Unless the unit is displaying an error code, often alpha-numeric, then you would need to contact you're a professional to properly diagnose the refrigerator.

That is not a good model number. Is it a top mount freezer or side by side? Generally in electrolux the freezer is what cooks the fridge, if fridge is not cooling, it could be several things causing it.
1. Damper not opening
2. Damper has ice build up
3. The return has ice build up
4. The freezer evap assembly is not defrosting to allow air flow.
5. The evap fan is not turning.
