Have same problem on a 2 month old Kenmore 106.5794*700. side by side.
I can see ice / frost build up behind the lower baffle on fridge side. Does not seem to be any airflow from freezer side to fridge side. Freezer is extremely cold, it is about -23F. I read that 0F would be normal. Fridge side is warmish, running at about about +50F when it should be about +32 to +38F.

BTW: Ice pops started sticking to my tongue, thats why I noticed the unit wasn't working correctly.

I'm not 100% sure but I think the compressor is also running all the time as well. Either that or a Fan or something running. That kinda points to a stuck thermostat or some thing causing it to stick. I suspect that if the Freezer thermostat which is located in the Fridge compartment just may to rely on air flow from the freezer side via a duct, if this duct is blocked, the Freezer Thermostat misread the freezer compartment temperature and will always activate the compressor. Wish I had more details on exactly how the freezer thermostat works.

So after reading various forums on this it looks like a defrost issue causing the ice or frost build up or maybe just a faulty thermostat. Maybe there is a common circuit control board for these two functions?

As this is still in Warrranty I have a Sears Tech coming on Monday 14th Jan 08. I'll be interested to see what he does.
