I've got a Ge m# psc23mgmabb refrigerator and it is freezing in the crispers. I have already replaced the air duct assm. in the top back of the fresh food section. It still does it though not as bad. I put a small peice of tape over half the lower vent that goes to the freezer to see if this takes care of it. My thinking is that when the fan in the fresh food section shuts off and the fan in the freezer starts that I'm getting cold air migrating from th freezer to the fresh food side. Or what do you guys think? Is there some kind of baffle or flap that is suppose to be in that vent at the bottom?

Try covering that hole completely, as long as that hole is not the only return air vent.

All of the Artica's have problems, lots of them...Usually the damper kit solves the problem as long as the air vent into the FF compartment is not blocked and the return air vent to the freezer is not blocked either.   If the compressor does not run very much the cold air will migrate back thru the return air vent, be sure the freezer control is not over half way and the FF side is not turned down too far.
