I have a problem similar to "Dan." The freezer is fine, but the refrigerated side is warm. If I turn the thermostat to coldest, then tap the housing, the damper opens. When I turn it down, the damper closes. When I turn it back to coldest, the damper stays closed until I tap, then it always opens.
I had the assembly out to inspect, and found that on the thermostat, there is always continuity between the black terminal (hot wire) and the pink wire that runs to the damper control. This was true no matter where the knob was set. I didn't think to tap it until I put the assembly back.
I know that I could replace the whole assembly, but wouldn't it be cheaper to replace just the thermostat? Is it sold that way, or is there a reason to replace the whole thing? Thanks.
Based on the information, it sounds like the temperature control 240383703 is faulty and would need to be replaced.
