GE Monogram 48" built-in, side-by-side, 8 years old trouble-free until now -

The motor runs until I turn the thermostat for the freezer down to the lowest setting. It will then stay off until the inside temps come up a bit to temps that are still too cold, for both sides. The refer side gets to about 30 degrees and the freezer side gets to about -10 degrees. I assume it is the thermostat but am not sure what needs replacing and if I can do it. I'm quite handy, but have no experience with refers. Thank you for your help, in advance.

Thank you. A thermostat has been ordered. Anything special that I need to know to install it? Thanks again.

Not really, just take your time.

The position of the end of the thermostat's capillary tube is important.
