This could be the actuator is not closing the door that controls how much cold air from the freezer is ciculated into the fresh food section. It could be something broken or there could be ice biuldup on the door itself, not allowing the door to open or close.

The fresh food section has a 67003410 Damper that has a thermostat probe that senses the fresh food section temperatures and then regulates the fresh food section cold air from freezer by opening and closing to maintain a set temperature. If defective the damper may remain closed or remain closed. You can test the damper by removing and placing the temperature probe into a glass filled with ice and no water. The damper should close in the ice and open when not in the ice. I will be here to answer any questions you have, Thanks Sea Breeze
The crisper can freeze when air leaks around the base of the duct assembly. To prevent this, the air tower will need to be removed. Disconnect power to the unit first. All the shelves and drawers will need to be removed, to access the tower. With the air tower out, now run a bead of silicone on the floor of the refrigerator where the tower sits. Now replace the duct on top of the sealant to make a tight seal and prevent the air leakage.
Make sure nothing fell below your crisper, deli drawer section. There are some air return vents below them and if they get partially obstructed would allow cold air to pool in the bottom of the fridge. Make sure your freezer control did not get turned up too high. Also you may want to check with the manufacturer as they did have some issues with some of the bottom mount models exhibiting this problem and they developed a repair kit for them.
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper)
between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through
it.There is a flap you adjust with the
fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the
fridge temp. The problem could be the electronic control if
you have one or the mechanical linkages.
Most fridges have crisper drawers that have a selection lever on either the front or side of the drawer that allows you to select eiher veggies or meat. Veggie setting is supposed to keep the crisper drawer warmer, while Meat setting makes it the coldest possible.
If you don't have the selector slide levers, I would suggest you use the highest possible crisper drawer available, as the lower in the frdge compartment you go, the colder the air will be. That should resolve the problem you're having, other than lowering the fridge temp setting slightly.
You might notice a cold air exchange vent next to your crisper, which supplies cold air from the freezer section into the fridge section, so that could be contributing to the colder temps in the crisper where you keep your veggies.
