the heat is from the condensor keeping the door from frezzing shut it is normal but you need to adjust the food compartment contorl it might say for a for a coler frezzor turn up then you do and the food compartment gets warmer all it is is a air baffle to alow more cold air into the food compartment turn the cold control half way its the one that has off on it and then turn the other control to a lower number to make more cold go into the food compartment

SOURCE: freezer cold but not fridge
too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.

Hi. Are you having frost build up or is the drain icing up?
If it is frost, remove the rear panel inside the freezer and check the defrost heater and the bi-metal switch for continuity. If either switch shows no continuity, replace that switch. The bi-metal switch which is located on the top of the evaporator coil, needs to be tested while it is still cold.
If eithe part shows good, the you will need to replace the defrost timer.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Pull the refrig out and remove the 8 " x 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board ( you already know , since you changed it ) . Unplug the refrig . Remove the BLUE plug from the board , with 3 larger wires going to it . Looking at the blue plug , the sequence will be wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire , and strip about 1/4 inch from each end . Insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . After about 3 min , look in the freezer , at the bottom , behind the crisper , look for a red glow . If no red glow , unplug the refrig , and reassemble the plug and cover . This no glow , indicates a shorted defrost heater . It is also advisable to replace the defrost thermostat ( pt. number WR50X10068 ) when replacing the heater . To access these parts , you will have to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer . The heater , is at the bottom of the coils , held on with 2 screws , and the thermostat , is the 1 " cylinder , with a blue and pink wire going to it , clipped on the top left of the coils .
If you do get a red glow , then the # 4 thermistor is bad . This tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp , when to cycle off .
