First with freezer door closed ,open fresh food door and feel the air flow in upper rear left corner at Damper(where the air comes in ) while still feeling the air flow open freezer door to see if air flow gets more air out of damper when freezer door is open ,

#4 press and hold freezer up button again till it beeps moving to #4 and compressor and condenser fan in rear will come on .

#5 press freezer up button again moved to #5 at this time we should be able to hear damper motor operate.
