First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Check cold control (thats where you turn it colder)

ok im at a loss as to why you would want a refer at this temp. but i will tell you no, this unit cannot maintain that high a temp. it can be tricked into it
but that involves odd wiring and changes in the baffel; system
at the risk of a bad rating i am sorry to be the bearer of bad news

Check the owners manual, it may only be a high temperature alert that will go away once it cools inside.


High Temp Alert If the temperature inside the cabinet exceeds 21°F (-6°C), the LED light at the bottom of the cabinet will flash and the alarm will sound. The alarm can be reset by opening and then closing the door. The LED will continue to flash until the cabinet temperature is below 21°F (-6°C).

If you are having water leaking it is the solenoid valve and that valve is not in the door. It is in the back of the refrigerator near the bottom, it maybe behind a cover. The only thing that goes to the door dispenser is the hose
