Re: Temperature in freezer doesn't come down below...
Searching on line, I noticed some similar problems addressed by technicians and customers. But their diagnosis was consistent: call the repair guy. They believed that the solution to the kind of problem I had was between "dump it" or "pay a big lump of dough to repair. So we replaced the old one.

turn freezer to mid point and try fridge on 3.5 as a starting point.
Keep the refrigerator temperature at or below 40° F (4° C). Thefreezer temperature should be 0° F (-18° C). Check temperatures periodically. Appliance thermometers are the best way of knowing these temperatures and are generally inexpensive.

Refrigerators are designed to be used inside at typical to normal
household temperatures. The problem with refrigerators are if the ambient
temperatures drop down below 55 Degrees F Food in freezer will begin to defrost
when the temperature in the garage goes below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. The fresh
food section may begin to freeze food slightly below this temperature. If you
live in an area where the outside ambient temperature does not get below 70
degrees F or 20 degrees C then the refrigerator will work fine but to have it
located in an area where temperatures drop well below this you could lose some
food. There are heaters that can be adapted to the compressor if used in an
unheated area. Hope this helps, Sea Breeze
Turn the refrigerator temp control down try factory setting, usually c on frige and 3 on freezer control. The cold air circulating from the freezer enters at the top of the frige therefor it is usually colder.
Located in the inside in the rear top of the fridge are aluminum fins. on one of the fins near side of fridge there is a folded aluminum sleve that skides up and down on the fin.
this actualy adjusts the temperature of your fridge. slide up or down to adjust fridge cabnit temperature.
this particular refrig has only one temperature control which as you know is loated in the refrig section. but temperature isnt your problem. when the icemaker fill tube freezes up like yours has it is generally a sign of a bad icemaker fill valve. the valve seals will go bad and allow water seepage into the line, this seepage will freeze creating a snowball effect freezing the tube. you can use a hair dryer to remove the ice from the tube, and either replace the fill vlave yourself or have it replaced
btw the fill valve is the part that the other end of the fill tube is connected to on the back/bottom of the refrig in the compressor compartment. Good luck and message me back if you have any questions. Thanks Peyton
Sounds like defrost timer is not putting the refrigerator in defrost every 8 hours. You freezer should be below -5 degrees. Also the condenser beneath the refrigerator possibly needs cleaning. First slowly turn the defrost timer clockwise until freezer goes in defrost. You should hear the sound of crackling noise in freezer after about one minute into defrost. If timer does not come out of defrost or does not turn itself then replace it. Let me know what you find, Thanks Sea Breeze
try this,make sure you dont have anything blocking your blower in the freezer.if that is okay if you have seperate controls for the freezer and the fridge,try setting the frige setting lower and the freezer higher,this makes the blower work more in the freezer.hope it helps.
What is the temperature in the freezer? Anything below 32 degrees freezes water. Make sure condenser coil is clean and that air can flow over it freely. In the back behind a removable panel you will find the condenser. Clean it completely and make sure the fan operates when the compressor is running.. Also check for possible frost on the back wall of the freezer which would indicate a defrost problem. if there is frost there the problem is ether a bad timer, heater, or defrost thermostat.
