Frigidaire side by side...FRS26KR4JW0 Freezer side fine...cleaned coils, fans working properly. Fridge side not getting cool. What is easiest test to see if damper is working properly? Do I keep freezer door closed...then open fridge door, but depress the door control with my hand/foot and check for air flow? If no air flow, bad damper? While investigating I did take off the housing and noticed the coil on the damper wasnt wound tight and almost appear stuck wide open. Doesnt it need 2 way flow to work properly? Thanks!
ANSWER Randy, can you hear and feel the freezer fan running when you open the freezer door ? is there a frost or ice build up on the freezer back wall? That would indicate a defrost cycle issue or freezer fan not circulating the air properly. The easiest way to test the auto damper assembly is to remove it from the refrigerator and check the door operation by warming the temperature bulb(coil) on the assembly. the wrmer it gets the more open the door, and the door should not completely close. Good Luck and Thanks
