Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The display setting and the fact that the actual temperature in the lower section is much colder leads me to suspect the electronic control is faulty. That control is shown at the URL below.

I suspect that part will need to be replaced but let's see if it will reset. Unplug the appliance for at least 4 hours. Does the behavior change once it is plugged back in?
