My Kenmore 363.9762811 (GE-sourced) is freezing some food in the crisper drawer.  The cheapo-thermometer-checked temperatures of the compartments (besides the crisper drawer, which is obviously below 32 at times) are 0-10/34-37.  I have adjusted the beer compartment thermostat multiple times and I am starting to run out of range in the thermostat.  (I have just turned it a hair lower than "warmest".) 

This is an intermittent problem, and happens only with the most water-logged foods such as carrots and greens.  There is but a smattering of ice crystals present when this occurs, so we are not talking deep-freeze here.

Of note with this unit:

The defrost system has been serviced for frost issues no less than three times.  Once for a new defrost thermostat, once for a new timer, and then shortly thereafter the defrost thermostat was relocated.  (Serviceman said the timer was likely never busted, rather the poor location of the thermostat triggered cycle-end before the defrost process was complete.)  This issue of freezing fresh food in the crisper (I gotta put the non-beer items somewhere!) seemed to begin after this last repair or after the timer swap, I can't remember which.

I fear not (indeed I long for) a sealed system problem, for Sears was foolish enough to sell me a 1-yr extended warranty on this 10-yr old unit of known flakiness.  An irreperable sealed system issue means a brand-new unit for me.

I thank all who would sully their keyboards with a typing out a reply to this humble grasshopper.
