My freezer does not keep food frozen. It will freeze food initially but sometimes ice cream will be really soft. Refrigerator will keep food cold and even sometimes if you set it to the coldest setting it will have ice crystals in drinks. You can set the freezer to the coldest setting and it does not make the food any colder. Is this the thermostat, defroster or damper?
You will want to pull the rear cover off the freezer and check for a frost pattern on the evaporator coils. The coils should have a full even frost pattern. Which would mean that the coils should have an even pattern of frost from top to bottom. If the coils are only half frosted then you would have an issue with the sealed system. If the coils have an even frost pattern then the thermostat would most likely be the cause of the issue.
Is there a specific terminal that the wires fasten to on my thermostat?
Answer Hello Keith,
There are only two terminals on the thermostat besides the ground terminal. The two wires fasten to these two terminals. It does not matter which you hook them. This is not a polorized part.

To get the damper off is kind of tricky since they use a sticky glue. You will need to remove by slowly working a flat blade around the perimeter of the damper in order to remove without damaging the part.
