Hi, our refrigerator is freezing milk, food and vegetables even though the refrigerator temperature is set to 42. Previously it used to be 40 and I raised it when I encountered the issue first thinking the setting was too low. The freezer works fine and food towards the inside of the refrigerator is ok. It is only the milk bottles in the door, vegetables and other food in the pantry drawer and the smaller drawers above it that are getting frozen.

Measure the resistance of the thermistor in the fresh food section, normal should be about 5K ohms at 77 degrees.

Here's the Temperature sensing thermistor for your model: Temperature sensing thermistor 6500JB2001B

Looks like it is located just under the left hinge cover. Or it may be inside the refrigerator in the ceiling inside a sensor cover.
