What does the damper do and how does it affect my refrigerator?
ANSWER Hello John,
The damper controls the amount of cold air from the freezer is shared into the fresh food compartment. Without it, the unit would either be a two sided freezer compartment or, if the opening were closed off, the fresh food compartment would stay at or near room temperature.
