There are many things which can cause the refrigerator to be too warm, but the only thing that can cause the refrigerator to get too cold is the thermostat itself. Unfortunately you'll need to order and replace the thermostat to fix this issue. The thermostat part number you'll need is WPW10424991 and it costs about $70 or so. There are no adjustments to the thermostat unfortunately.
