First, I'm requesting a service manual for this model. 

 

Second, the set temp currently @ 38º but also @ 42º actual temp is 25-28º and display reads actual temp. My first inclination is to replace thermister but I'm wondering if damper is the problem or perhaps something I have not considered. Any suggestions?

Suspect the dampers...first , I would look at the custom cool drawer. There are 2 Dampers...1 supply ,1 return. They should work together...if one is open the other should be open. Same with closing. If you find one open and one closed, that is the problem. The one that is not closing is the bad one, and it is available as a separate part without replacing the almost $400 air handler.
The upper damper could also be broken I find the CC to be the prob most often.

Thermitors out of tolerance possibly. Check dampers first as stated above.

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.
