Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

The flashing 4 means that your damper assembly has failed. The damper is the vent flap that opens and closes to regulate the air into the refrigerator from the freezer. The damper is mounted in the upper back left corner of the refrigerator and it'll need to be replaced to resolve your issue. Below is a link to the part.
