This is actually a problem with your motherboard, located behind the refrigerator. (look for a rectangular cover, held on by usually 3 screws)
Replace the motherboard as soon as possible, or you will very soon see cooling performance issues.

    No, you won't have a good spare, you will have a working refrig and an old bad board. I have run in to this exact situation several times.

After you set the temps the ice box will display the current temps inside both compartments. I am including my personal copy of the tech's repair manual and in it you will be able to do some checks and understand better how the controls work. Using the diagnostics tests in this manual should give you an idea of how to solve this problem. Anyone can say ok run out and buy a new control and when the problem still persists and you find out it is a cheapazs thermistor then that is aggravating. I have the exact repair manual for your ice box sir right HERE

You probably have a sensor issues there are two one for the freezer one for the frig. Check your freezer temp it should be at 0 degress at manufactor setting. If the temp is below -10 you freezer sensor is bad. Otherwise your frig sensor is bad. CHECK FREEZER FIRST!!!
