Frig too cold

Our 8 cf Dometic frig (2004 Classic) freezes everything - even set on lowest setting, A/C or LP. Milk in door, fruit in bottom drawer, or items on shelves, no matter where we place it in the frig, it freezes solid.

Freezer freezes fine.

Trailer is level. Frig/frez doors seal fine now that we had the bent freezer door replaced under warranty.

Happens with ALC mode on or off.

Followed manual suggestion about cold spots, but everything freezes.

Any suggestions? Is something wrong?

It sounds like the board is not reading the temp probe in the refer. In some units it clips on the cooling fins. If it is hanging loose the sensor will not get cold enough. This would cause your symptoms. It could also have gotten damaged on install like your door. If it is not something simple I would ask them to replace under warranty, your BIG freezer with a normal fridge/freezer.
