Is the cold control the freezer control or the refrigerator control?  I'm thinking the problem is most likely electronic, since the refrigerator hasn't been moved (dislodginrg or knocking something loose), and the problem appeared all at once.

11 degress F?   if so this is not cold enough

i asked before, and i know it might not seem relevent, but what lights are lit on the dispensor for the ice/water?  is anything strange happening with these lights, like maybe the extra ice light always being on?

look inside the freezer, back wall at the bottom there are slots in the panel, what do you see?

i suggest you remove the shelves from the freezer and remove the back panel and let us know what the frost patern on the evaporator behind that panel looks like

i suspect your freezer is cold but not cold enough to activate the control for the damper

I will check these things when I get home and will post my findings later this evening.  Thanks!

Checked again and it is 9 degrees f.  I went ahead and adjusted the freezer to "coldest".

We'll see whether the damper closes.

I'll check the temp again in the morning (in the freezer and the fridge).  If that doesn't cure the problem, I will pull the back panel off as you suggest.

My display is not doing anything particularly weird.  It shows the ice as "cube" but I can switch it to "crush" no problem.  The other lights are all off.  The only other thing that is a little strange is that the "filter status" light was on before this problem, but isn't on any more.  The light switch works.  Nothing happens when I press the "extra ice" button.

Hope that's helpful.  Thanks for your help!

Reduced the freezer temp - it went as low as 0 degrees f.  Might actually be colder, but that's as low as my thermometer goes.  The refrigerator went down a couple degrees (19 degrees on the top shelf).

The Freezer Cold Control, controls the Compressor and Freezer temperature.

The Fridge temperature is controlled by a electro-mechanical Air Damper Door.

So, if the freezer seems to be working fine - the temperature seems to be controlled well by the freezer control.  However, the refrigerator seems to be too cold.  The damper door seems to be open all the time and the fan runs constantly.  I'm thinking the damper control is the culpret - don't you?

damper could be bad, but older frigidaires have a bad habit of freezing the damper(by older i mean 2003(think that was the worst year))

if you can take a flashlight and mirror and look inside the damper to see if any ice is visable

i would suspect the damper itself before the damper control

here is a manual for your style of friggy SxS

http://cid-161d5dae096a24ce.office.live.com/self.aspx/service%20manuals/frigidaire%20service%20manuals/frigidaire%20fridge/next%20gen%20sxs.pdf

this will show you how to dismantle the control housing to inspect the damper

*NOTE* there is one screw at the back left of the fridge, directly behind the damper, its recessed and the hole narrows before you get to the screw, if you try using a socket on an extention it will jam in there and never come out, you MUST use a 1/4 inch nut driver or a long multi screwdriver for 1/4 inch bits as a nut driver
