So if the damper is not working the freezer side should be just fine to use as a freezer?
Answer AI, Correct. You may want to set the freezer control a little lower/warmer to compensate for the lost air flow, it may start to overcool, depending on usage and location.
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.
