I think it could be the condenser is full of dirt,dust and pet hairs if pets are present.Also possible Evaporator fan problem or defrost also causing poor air flow in order for temp sensing .

In cases like this, there is ALWAYS a reason for the over temp button to trip. Possible causes:
1. Faulty Over Temp Switch
2. Compressor over/under charged causing too much electrical current and tripping the over temp switch
3. Fins in the rear of the fridge clogged with dust causing compressor to work too hard.

Bottom line: The Over Temp switch is a safety device and is trying to tell you something is wrong. Consider professional repair or depending on the age of the unit, consider replacement.

How to change the temp in a frigidaire galaxy refrigerator


Units will vary give or take a few degrees from the control panel display. Keep in mind once you change the temperature it will take up to 10-12 hours to stabilize and reach that temperature. If the unit is not cool, even at the bottom of the refrigeration portion (where the coolest air will be found) then contact a professional to diagnose the control pane and board.

You have a defrost problem. Refrigerator gets cold via freezer. If blocked with frost, will restrict cold air into refrigerator.
