Unable to adjust the temperature in Maytag refrigerator.

I have a Maytag refrigerator, mod # RTT1900E, and the temperature in the refrigerator section is too cold. The unit has two plastic dials to control the temperature in the freezer and refrigerator. The freezer section seems to be adjusted OK. However, the plastic dial for the refrigerator section won't turn. I am afraid it will break if I twist it more than I have already. The 0-9 range on the dial is set at 3, while the coldest setting is 9.
There is a screw that holds the plastic dial in place. When I removed the screw and tried to remove the plastic dial, only one side can be pry-ed downward with the right side held in place by something.
Can't find a parts list so don't know how the dial is designed and why the control doesn't work.
