Which thermistor did you replace? I believe there is one that controls the damper and another one that runs into the freezer that control temps. After you change what must be the freezer thermistor, make sure to check your damper while you are at it. The door could now be frozen open due to the extreme temps.

Also check to see if you have a wire harness issue. You can run diagnostics to see if the board recognizes the thermistors. The pass fail won't determine if the thermistors are calibrated properly but it will tell you if there is a connection/communication problem between them and the board.
