Please set all controls to the middle/ normal setting.
Your fridge has only one shared cooling source, the evaporator in the freezer. Your refrigerator control is a thermostat, not unlike the thermostat for your home's AC unit. The freezer control simply operates a damper door between the compartments.
Let us suppose you have a two story, two room house. Bedroom upstairs kitchen downstairs . Now let us suppose the bedroom has a window AC unit but the thermostat is located in the kitchen near the stairway. You keep both rooms cool by keeping the stairway door open. One night, you decided you wanted your bedroom as cold as possible so you go to the kitchen, max out the thermostat and you close the door to the stairway. The bedroom gets colder. What do you think happens to the temperature in the kitchen?
Not only will the kitchen become warmer but since the thermostat is in the kitchen, the AC unit in the bedroom runs constantly since the thermostat threshold temp cannot be satisfied. It still think it's too warm. Now your bread and apples in the kitchen start to go bad while you are freezing your buns off asleep in the bedroom. You figure, once you wake up you will put a note on the door, "coldest = closed... so keep door halfway open"
The freezer control on your model is like the door to that stairway. Coldest ie setting # 7 is closed. So wake up (double entendre intended) open the door half way and put the thermostat on a normal setting. This way your bedroom(freezer) is cold and will not over freeze and your kitchen (fresh food section) is cold as well.
And if the above is confusing or doesn't apply, still put controls on normal settings in order that we can properly diagnose the problem.
