I've got a customer with a KA side by side Mod KSBS25FJBL00. The freezer is fine, no ice buildup, blows wind like a mother in law. Bottom vent clear. I suspect that the automatic moisture control is stuck on because the outside of the wall between the freezer and fridge sides is hot to the touch. Not warm, hot (as in > 120 degrees F) This fridge does have a foo foo wood overlay over a black fridge. Don't see anything on the diagram about the moisture control, suspect it in the control board. Temp in the freezer hovers around 0, but the fridge side won't go below 55-60. Replace the control board? Is there a way to disable the auto moisture control otherwise? Suggestions welcome.

Fan runs fine, blows 0 degree air into fridge side. Open freezer door and moisture condenses and freezes on wall between compartments. If it were a clog in the freon tubing wouldn't the temp fluctuate in the freezer and or cause the compressor to shut down prematurely in its cycle? The coils freeze up withing a minute or two after the defrost cycle. The divider wall is only too hot in the front, thas why I suspected the moisture controls.

This sounds an awful lot like an air distribution problem. As you know, all the cold air comes from the freezer compartment and a portion of that is blown into the beer compartment to keep it cool. Two possibilities: either the air supply port is sealed shut (bad damper control, usually), or the air return port is sealed shut (by frozen condensate, usually).
