Fridge isn't cooling and the freezer is fine. Do I need a new housing assbly or Therm control or both? (also, you list 2 therm control part numbers - which is right for this model) Can I check one or the other with a multimeter.
Answer Hello Karl. The first thing you will need to check is if there is a defrost problem. If you see frost build up on the freezer back wall, you will need to test the defrost thermostat and the defrost heater 61006199. They should read closed for continuity. If they are good, and there is a defrost problem, you will need to replace the defrost control board 61005988. If there is no defrost problem, you will need to check and see if the damper is opening. If it is not, you will need to replace the housing assembly. You can test the heater and thermostat with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. We would need your serial number for the thermostat control. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html

Answer Narine, If the refrigerator cools properly and the compressor cyclles properly between defrost cycles, you'll need to check for loose connections at the new ADC board/timer. If there are no loose connections repalce the ADC control again 61005988. If I understand you correctly, the auto damper and housing 61005971 has nothing to do with the compressor start and run. It controls the air flow into the refrigerator compartment. If the refrigerator does not cool then the damper assembly should solve the issue. Thanks and good Luck
