Freezing in fresh food compartment. All fans turn off and on at the proper times. Damper opens and closes and closes when set point has been reached. Fresh food, ice bin, and freezer thermistor ohm appropriately at room temp, 32 degrees f and they read correctly at the display, if I change it to read actual temps. This one has the thermistor in the light housing and the light does turn off. The temp is fine at the top of the unit 40 degrees f, but is as low as 25 degrees f at the bottom. It was leaking around the damper but I sealed that with a little silicone and now I feel no more cold air leaking from the ice compartment. The evaporator has no ice blocking any air flow and the return vents on the bottom of the fresh food section are not blocked. What am I missing.

What would happen if there was a fresh air leak (like the door gasket) allowing warm air into the fresh food compartment?  Theoretically, the unit would respond by sending more chilled air into the fresh food compartment until the temperature at the thermistor was satisfied.    The stratification could be from the increased air flow through the fresh food compartment.  I'm not a professional appliantologist, just throwing a theory out there.  Might be completely off base.
