well I found your ref. finally. this has a cold control damper in it. this is what your problem is . the damper is not closing which its suppose to do when the ref. gets down to the temp. you set it at. click this link and part 3 is the control this opens and closes the damper. unless your damper spring or rod is broken this is what you need to order. link, http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=GC2227CDFW&pr oductCategoryId=0165000&brandId=3048&modelName=INTERNATIONAL-REFRIGERATION&diagramPageId=00002&componentDescription=CONTROLS&documentId=M0304143&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list , hope this helps , thanks Bryan
