My refrigerator temperature fluctuates from 38 degrees up to 50 (I use a manual thermometer.) I have poured quite a bit of money into this refrigerator (Model #PCF25NGWAWW). Replaced: Condenser Fan, control board, all thermistors, defrost heater and I think that's it. This refrigerator has a climate controlled fresh food section that has never gotten below 49 degrees (set at 34). I have the refrigerator set at 34 and the freezer set at -2. The freezer will go between -5 and 20 degrees F as well. Not sure what the heck is going on.

Y​ou sent a picture of the evaporator . Did you change the thermistor mounted to the top of the evaporator ? This is the one can cause wild temperature swings ( it tells the main board when to terminate defrost ) Also check that both doors when closed do indeed turn off the interior lights , especially the fresh food door because it can ride down on the bottom hinge ( it is adjustable height )

I changed the upper thermistor. The doors do close and the lights turn off (I recorded with my phone to verify.
