Yes,I have checked onthe top shelf and also on the bottom compartment.Some foodstuff such as yogurts on the middle shelves have not froze.
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 8 years ago.
you need to replace the damper control to fix this problem ,, its getting to cold in the fridge and froze the water tank behind the lower crispers ,,, replace the damper and warm up the water tank with a hair dryer and that will fix both problems ... the part number is XXXXX

Is it unusual for this part to break,considering the appliance was only bought in August 2008?
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 8 years ago.
not really ,,, the motor on it went out and it wont shut ,, i have seen this on other makes and models too
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 8 years ago.
i just thought about something ,,, dont buy any parts ,,, call the ones you bought it from and see who they use for service and get it fixed for free ,,, you have a one full year warranty on parts and labor and since you got the fridge less than a year ago its under warranty
