Refrigerator getting TOO COLD
Just acquired this used refrigerator--Kenmore Side By Side--Model # 106.51572200. The refrigerator is getting too cold and freezing things even after turning the temperature control down to 1 and below. Also I'm getting a little bit of frost on the top/inside of the freezer door. I have turned down the freezer also. Sorry, I don't have a thermometer in the refrigerator to actually see what the temperature is. I will buy that soon. Just wanted to know if anyone had any ideas of what might be causing this to stay too cold--- didn't see any other posts regarding this problem. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

The cold air coming from the freezer into the refrigerator through the vent in the upper left corner. You can adjust this air flow by using the left knob on the control panel which operates with the air diffuser. You have to properly adjust the air diffuser and the thermostat (the right side knob), keeping in mind that you have to wait about 24 hours after every adjustment to see the result.
