Vegetables in crisper drawers are freezing

My Kenmore Refrigerator Trio model # 795.78503.800 is freezing the vegetables in the crisper drawers and when I try to adjust the refrig temp and freezer temps the settings keep going lower. I have the crisper drawer set to the leafy logo which is for vegetables. Right now the refrig temp i 35 F and -6 on the freezer. But I don't know how to raised the settings. The manual does not give instructions for this. It just says press these buttons to change the temp.

This problem can be caused by a bad cold control/thermostat or by the air damper not closing as it should to restrict the cold air blowing into the refrigeration section from the freezer. There was a known issue causing this and it would require a technician to correct this problem. I'd suggest you have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

One way to check the thermostat is to turn it all the way to the coldest setting. Let it run overnight and then the next morning try turing the thermostat to a warmer setting and see if it clicks off and stops running.

You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.
