Had the same problem and referred to another post regarding ice build up around the evaporator coils in the freezer unit. I had no ice build up but flat foil guard had dropped down across the freezer outlet which caused more cold air to be forced up into the lower section of the fridge. This caused the freezing of the vegetables. Follow barkbugs steps first www.fixya.com/support/t970724-fisher_paykel_fridge_freezer and see if that is the problem. Also while starting to remove items from the freezer check to see if something has moved back and is blocking the air vent. Even a packet of food may cause enough blockage. A slicker pad was also part of our problem.

Make sure that the fin tubes on the back are not loaded with dust, clean off and don't over load the freezer section. If there is no room for air flow the temperature will keep getting colder to compensate for low air circulation, thus freezing items in the lower section.
Welcome to FixYa.
In actuallity most fridges whether they are side by side, conventional top mount, or bottom mount, the control for the fridge section is nothing more than a damper which allows or prevents air flow through the fridge section. The thermostat which control the "run time" or actual temperature is the freezer control. It is possible to set the fridge control at "1" and yet still have items feeze because the freezer control is set to "3", "5", or higher. Try adjusting the freezer control to a lower number as well and see what that yields. You may also want to vacuum out your condensor coils under the unit...( unplugging the power cord first of course ;) safety first ) this too can cause items to freeze in the fridge section. Without getting too deep into how it all works I'll just say it effects the entire system negatively.
Hope you find this an acceptable solution and can take a moment to rate it accordingly.
Thank you for visiting FixYa and please let me know if you require further assistance.
What is your refrigerator cold setting? Try lowering the temp to to the medium setting.
Items in the lower part of the fridge will freeze if the setting is too high. (P.S. Cold air "sinks" so the lower part of the fridge will be colder. Cutting the "number" setting on the fridge does stop air flow though.
Somewhere there's another knob that controls the position of a damper that balances cold between the freezer and the refrigerator. Despite where the knob is, the thermostat is probably controlling the freezer temp. The damper controls how much cold from the freezer gets to the refrigerator.
You need to adjust that knob to divert less cold air into the refrigerator section.
It's also possible the damper has gotten stuck and can't be moved, in which case you may need a repair tech.
the mother board located inside the lower rear portion of the unit is bad,if you have recently had lights blow out this can cause a surge and ruin the mother board,also if there are relays clicking and lights are blinking dimly this is a good sign the board is bad
