My refrigerator freezes my food solid

I have set the settings to the warmest they can be and the refrigerator still freezes everything solid. I have a 2005 6.5  Kenmore Elite refrigerator that freezes my food.  I've set the controls to the warmest but it still freezing my food.  Thinking of calling in a handyman.

    This is an Old OLD Philco, which was gutted and had everything upgraded in the early to mid 90's with then current tech. Finding milk frozen as well as everything else.

    Refrigerator Is Freezing Food. If your fridge is freezing the food in the chilling compartment as well as the freezer, it means one thing--its thermostat isn't shutting down the compressor when the set temperature has been met. Faceboook Customer Support

My refrigerator freezes my food solid

There are vents that allow the cold air to flow from the freezer to the fridge. If those vents become clogged with ice or fail mechanically, they can become stuck open or closed. The temp adjustment should move the damper in the vents. But if they are frozen open, then the fridge will become too cold.
