This answer was rated:

Whirlpool fridge mod#g15svaxvl00 . Fridge side will freeze if set on 36. Set on 46 now. Is this a cold control problem and is it the board in the DOOR.

Does the compressor run all the time?

Don't know , its a garage fridge

Ok well the two things that are going to cause this is first the temp control (thermostat) behind the knob for the freezer temp or the damper (the small door allowing cold air into the fridge)

First check the compressor is shutting on and off as it should, if it is running all the time then the cold control is the problem. If the compressor is turning on and off then the damper is the problem, it is stuck in the open position.

The damper is the small door inside the vent in the fridge that allows cold air to pass from the freezer to the fridge.

where is the damper door on this thing , behind the ice mmaker in the fresh food side. That's where the vent is?

The damper looks like it is behind the ice maker in the fridge part 11

This unit does not have a cold control so it also could be a problem with the sensor in the fridge.
