JRTD229B refrigerator; how to remove fresh food compartment

Customer Question

JRTD229B refrigerator; how to remove fresh food compartment top?
Freezer very cold, good airflow in freezer, no airflow into fridge. The freezer temp control rod got frozen (long ago), might be broken/disconnected.

Thanks for your question.
There are a couple vertical screws to drop the panel down and get at the controls on it. #9 are the screws
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Those screws only remove control cover panel; air deflector/ orifice aren't accessible until top of fresh food section is removed. Prefer step-by-step photos. If not clear, we can arrange phone call.

Am I stuck at the computer until you reply, or can you send via e-mail?

Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I believe the number 22 front panel will need to come out and then the assembly slides forward. Of course, the door hinge will need to be removed, too.
