Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
Okay great that does help, the issue with this refrigerator is the damper assembly. The damper assembly controls the airflow from the freezer to the refrigerator section, this is electronically controlled and opens and closes to keep the temperature constant, the issue is it's either staying open too long or its stuck open, what you need to do is order and replace the damper assembly, the damper assembly is up in the left top corner between the two sides, it's number seven on this diagram. You can order this at the following link, http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Damper/67005014/1071136?modelNumber=GC2225GEK3 this will take care of your issue. Thanks and have a great Sunday, Bryan

Thanks Bryan...


 


There was also a build up of ice behind the damper...will a manual defrost help?


 


Mark

Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
Yes Mark, what I would do for now is take a hair dryer and defrost all that ice and see whether the damper closes correctly after that is done. Now of course you go to be warming the damper assembly up which will make it stay open until the refrigerator gets back down to temperature but that was certainly help. The reason the ice is there is because the damper is open and a lot of air is flowing from the freezer to the refrigerator section more than it should so of course ice will build up along that area. Also you may want to check in your freezer and see if there is ice on the back wall or Frost if so you may want to defrost that also. I hope this information is useful, thanks, Bryan
