If the thermostat has been replaced, then I would take a look at the dampers between the refrigerator and the freezer. Here is why....
All the cooling takes place in the freezer section of the unit, there are passageways with dampers that connect the freezer section to the refrigerator section. If these dampers get stuck in a certain position you will either have not enough cooling or to much cooling. This sounds like it is your issue. Hope this helps.

I have a Kenmore side by side refrig. and the freezer side keeps getting full of frost, and the refrig. side is barely cold, and keeps spoiling food. I've had a tech come out and check things out and...


Either your defrost element or timer is bad or your fridge is low on freon. Frost is a sign of outside air getting in but it can also be a sign of the defrost heating element not kicking in and the defrost timer turns it on for a few minutes each day and a defrost limit keeps it from getting two warm during the defrost cycle. good luck hope this helps

Frigidaire refrigerator with a broken freezer


He is correct. The temp in the refrig controls how often and for how long the refrig runs. Lets say the temp in your garage is 34 degrees, and you have your refrig set to 36 degrees: The refrig will never run, the fresh foods section will cool to 34, and the freezer will warm to 34. Even if the temp is 45 in the garage and you set the fresh foods to be 33, the refrig will not need to run long enough and often enough to keep the freezer temp cold enough. You will most likely need to have the ambient room temp at least 55 degrees to get satisfactory refrigerator performance. Insulating the refrig will not help. (by the way, outdoor beverage vending machines use an internal heater in cold weather to prevent liquid beverages inside from freezing,..... so using that info, you could put a low wattage heater in your refrig to make your refrig run enough to make the freezer section work. The %&#* with that, just move it into the house!)
