Question about Refrigerators
This very well be a damper problem, if it is there is a lot to take a part to fix . This would take a lot to explane step by step.. Or may be you had mentioned that a part could be missing , ?.
This may help your problem until you get it fixed. Find the vent where the cold air comes into the crisper compartment. You can restrict much of the extra cold air, by covering the vents with packing tape.An old trick I have use before , I hope it works for you. please rate my info thanks. DFD

Could be: You need to have a new computer
board installed in the fridge near the top. Ours got hit by static
lightning ang blew two of them in two years. When they go out, the
defrost cycle fails and Ice builds up in the freezer in the back
middle. Take the back vover off in the freezer and you'll see it packed
with ice since the defroster is not getting the signal to defrost.
order a new computer board, install it in the top of the fridge side,
in the back, above all those controls on the back right side in a white
case to hold the board. defrost the ice by using a hair dryer and
letting all the water drain out and get it dry. Those PC boards do not like static at all
MY BEST BET IS:
Sounds like the damper or damper belt may be at fault. The cold air enters the refer compartment through the damper in the back. If that damper is not controled to close/open as needed it is likely stuck fully open all the time. That will let cold air in no matter what the t-stat says. See if you can view with a mirror and see if the damper "blinds" are fully open. If the t-stat is turned all the way down the dampers should close, as less cold air is needed. Then, as the t-stat is turned up, the dampers open to let in cold air from the freezer compartment. Let us know what you find and we can go from there.
