Hello, you may want to repost your question over in the Refrige area. Those freon sniffers over there would be better to give you good information. Your Performa PAV2200 is a washer model. Give them a new shout.

Refrigerator food freezing even when on lowest setting

There is one of three reasons why your fridge section is freezing food. You didnt mention whether you had a side by side or freezer on top or bottom model, so the following checks may not apply to your unit.

One reason food might be freezing is your cold control has failed, and will not turn the unit off when the physical temps are correct. When this occurrs food normally freezes throughout fridge section, top, bottom, middle, front and back.
BOTH controls, though you may only have one, should be at the middle setting. Adjust your controls, place a plastic cup of water at the top, the middle, and bottom shelf of your fridge. Check all three AFTER 24 hours. if all three are ice, you COULD have a bad cold control.

It is possible you might also have a door damper that is stuck open. A door damper is a swinging or sliding door that opens / closes either when temp control settings are adjusted, or on some fridges, when either door is opened, the damper closes. Please note, door dampers are USUALLY only present on side by side refrigerators. They can have a motor, or thermostat open the door automatically,which can break, and others will simply have a lever of some sort, which usually wont.

If after 24 hours, only the middle and bottom cups are ice, your evaporator fan motor, in the freezer, is likely not operating. Not knowing the BRAND you own, it could be the motor itself, a thermostat located on the evaporator, your defrost heater, or a main computer control board that controls the fan motor.

Sorry I cant be as specific as id like, but i had to cover all possible bases

I have a kitchenaid superba ksrs25ilwh side by side fridge. The freezer is working fine but the fridge wont get cold enough even at the lowest temp

check the damper vent door for proper opening and closing as if this door is frozen shut or broken and jammed it cant open to let cold air in from freezer it will be behind a plastic grille between the freezer and fridge compartments and you should hear a fan in there running to move cold air too

Older model fridge freezes on the refrig. side

check the damper door and see if its iced up this is between the refrige and freezer compartments and lets cold into refrige from freezer,if it ices up in the open condition the refrige control cant change the temp,defrost the door and then see if the control moves the door,if so also check the door seals to make sure they are sealing good so as not to let warm air in that can condense and freeze things like the damper door

Fridge is too cold no matter what temp I put it to

the temp is controled by airflow from the freezer. If you have a slide temp control, the control lever or knob might have come loose from the lever that opens the airway to allow airflow. You should be able to find a small opening that goes from the freezer to the fridge. This controls the amount of cold air that is allowed into the fridge.

Refridgerator side wont cool but freezer side does.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Fridge side is not cooling, freezer side is fine

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Slide lever for temp control

I will need to know the model # that is on the sticker inside the refrigerator to help. Don't use the # off of the manual.

Side by side fridge freezer

Based on your weird display issues I'd lean toward the control board problem. At least that can be "one" of a couple problems...
