Fridge Freezing

Everything keeps freezing in my fridge even now that temp outside is warming up. Any ideas on what I need to do?

Similar Problem with our Norcold N811VF

This is the first time we have been away on an extended stay in our Crusader 5er and we are having the same issues with our fridge starting to freeze some items.
We have the N811VF which does not have a temperature control slider on the front panel, but I seem to recall some earlier posts that suggest moving the height and position of the thermistor on the fins.
Currently the thermistor is located on the 10th fin from the right (looking into the fridge), roughly 2" from the top of the fin (See photo).
Which direction (Left/right -Up/Down?) should I move this to see if it makes a difference?
Also is it just clipped on the fin?

Yes it pulls off easily.
Down is warmer.
Make probe is at the top of the slider.

If your thermistor is on the last fin to the right you need to move it to the left one, two, or three fins over, that way it will shut off sooner and won't freeze.

Because the thermistor senses the temperature of the fin to which it is attached. The fins are different temperatures, depending on how much air circulates over them. The one on the far right is a little warmer, partly because it does not have another fin on one side.
Watch the video. It's very informative.
