Do we install it? or have a technician install it? it is an easy thing to install?
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.

actually after looking at the controls you will need to replace the damper control. its like the cold control but closes to stop the air flow to the refrigerator section in yours, its # XXXXX on this diagram. inside the refrigerator section in the back, check and see if the spring came off before ordering this. thanks, Bryan
