How did you check your fresh food thermistor?

Usually it's a bad fresh food thermistor if the fresh food side is freezing.

You can ohm test it, unplug your refrigerator first.

The thermistor should measure about 8750 ohms at 32*F. You can put it in a glass of ice water for least 5 minutes before ohm testing it.

The thermistor only comes with the wire harness on your model:

HI,
SORRY FOR THE DUPLICATE ANSWER.
I HAVE THE WHIRLPOOL THERMISTOR 12003355.BUT IT IS NOT THE SAME READING.
NOW IF ADJUST THE TEMPERATURE IN TEST 211:
Service Test - 211 Fresh Food Temperature Adjustment
Press the Refrigerator Up Keypad or Down Keypad to change calibration of Fresh Food Temperature plus or minus in 1°F increments up to 6°F.
NOTE: Temperature will read in Fahrenheit regardless of what current temperature scale is being used.
DO YOU THINK IF I RAISE ONE OR TWO DEGREES,IT WILL SOLVE MY PROBLEME?
THANKS AGAIN

Possibly, try it.

Please don't use ALL CAPS, that's considered yelling online.:)
