Frig + 26 to +39, freezer -20 to =20

I have a Frigidaire Royal refrigerator model F44Q22JTW0 that takes to long for the warm up in the refrigerator, so the freezer warms up to +20 degrees.Answer
I replaced the cold temperature control and had the same problem. Discovered on the wiring diagram that there is a heater for the cold control, which just happens to be a part of the wiring harness and costs about $91.
Is there a generic heater that is usually used in refrigerators that use a cold control heater? The price of the whole wiring harness is prohibitive.
Do you have the part number for the heater because I looked on the parts breakdown and didn’t see the heater you are talking about?
Was it called a mullion heater? If so that heater doesn’t have anything to do with your problem.
What you are describing sounds like what a refrigerator would do if used in an unheated environment (such as a garage) in cold weather. Is this the case?
