Temp in fridge stayed around 45-46 degrees even at lowest setting. First went with most probable problem of replacing the Evaporator Motor Kit in lower freezer compartment, no change, next ordered thermistor in fridge area, no change, temp stayed in same range, then tried the Electronic Control Board in top of fridge, fridge works like a charm now. Very easy repair, just follow directions to progam new board. Possible cause a lightning strike near house that fried a TV about 2 years ago - fridge began to freeze items at first and went downhill from there.
