Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

The problem is that units cooling in the refrigerator is electronically controlled by a computer and a thermistor temp sensor when the sensor goes bad the unit will not cycle correctly and it run too long and cause the refrigerator to get to cold and freeze things in the refrigerator compartment. To fix it you will need to change the thermistor, its located in the control panel of the refrigerator section. The replacement part is listed below.
