I've taken the ice bucket out and all shelving. I see slats on the back of the freezer wall under the ice maker. There is one slat above the ice ejector, 4 slats under the ice ejector and 4 slats under the black box (i don't what part it is). Am I really going to ahve to remove the back of the freezer (inside) to get to it? It looks like I'll interupt the ice making equipment.
I need to ask. How many dampers are there on this model? The repair person who was here told me he tested the damper and he indicated it being on the fridge side ( right hand side when facing fridge) in the compartment where he changed the thermister. Where does the cold air for the deli drawer in the middle of the fridge blow cold air from?
I'm sorry for being such a novice at this but I'm trying to understand.
Hi Barry :)
He replaced the thermister and tested it before he put it in. He said it was reading correctly. He also tested the original one and it showed to be off in it's temperature reading.
I just took off the cover in the fridge side (upper left corner) and there is a damper as you describe there with a spring and door. It is closed and everything seems to be intact as it should be including the spring. When I hold the door sensor closed it blows cool air as does the deli vent.
Re: the deli vent. I only ask because the fridge freezes everything at that level first - including my eggs. Items further away from that section manage to survive a bit longer but eventually begin freezing.
ok - may i ask some small questions though? What temperature should the freezer be at regularly? What are the optimum settings for the fridge and freezer? Also, is there a way to keep the alarm from sounding? It sounds regularly 2x a night to indicate temperature problems - i need my sleep :(
Is there a reset button on anything?? (i know there probably isn't but I wanted to ask)
Thanks for your help.
I looked behind the veggie drawers and found the return air duct you mentioned. I can see coils through it and it seems to be free of obstruction.
re: alarm. According to the manual it sounds when either of the compartments has registered high temperatures for more then 2 hours.
Considering my food is freezing - I'm confused.
Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.
hello, I just wanted to say Barry is right on the money on this one, its the damper assembly,
Thanks for your added info. Barry and yourself have been great at answering my questions. Can you tell me how you know it's the damper assembly and how the damper assembly is to function? I've already spent close to $450 on repairing this fridge and am hesitant to put another couple of hundred dollars in it just to find out I have the same problem. Thanks in advance for your time. I will accept Bary's answer with a little more detail about the damper and how it is to operate. Again - Thank you :)
