My refrigerator seems cold enough but the freezer doesn't freeze. Is that the damper?
Answer Hello Karl. Check the conde3nser coils and make sure they are clean. Also, make sure the fan motor is good on the unit.
my lettuce in the vegetable bins freeze as well as other foods in the fridge is it the damper control
Answer Beau, Yes it could be a faulty damper, but first check and make sure, there is nothing in front of the damper grille, forcing the air down the back wall of the refrigerator, Check and make sure there are no articles hanging over the edges of the shelves or against the wall, blocking/trapping the air in the lower portion of the refrigerator. Also remove the crisper drawers, and check the bottom of the compartment, especially the rear corners for debris blocking the return air tunnels. Based on the part number, this should be a "bottom mount" refrigerator, If the freezer is too cold, or the door/drawer is not sealing proper, the air can migrate up into the lower area of the refrigerator.
Does a damper control the temperature in the fridge?
Answer Hello Jane. Yes, by opening and closing, it regulates the temp inside the fresh food.
Can I just order a spring for this?
Answer Hello Andrew,
Unfortunately, you cannot order just the spring. The spring has to be ordered with the damper assembly R0161050.
