The part is number 219 in this diagram. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-part/pfss5njwass/0432/0161000/g0990156/00004.html It can get blocked with frost if the door is left open.

No air coming out of it. Took off plastic cover in frige area. There is a control covered in styrafoam, assuming thats the evaporator door, it plugs in.
