Can you tell me where the damper is located in my model?
Answer Hello Michelle. It is located inside the icemaker box housing inside the fresh food section.
Where is the damper door located?
Answer Hello Jim. The damper is located inside the icemaker compartment on the unit.
Food is freezing. Ice maker not working and the freezer is frosted.
Answer Hello Jim. Check for a bad door seal on the unit letting warm air into the unit. This will cause the frost. As for the icemaker and freezing food, check the damper and icemaker in the fresh food section. If broken, you will need to replace both the icemaker W10519364 and the damper W10127427 in the unit.

Where is the thermistor located (part #12002355) in this model?

How do you check the thermistor with a ohm meter?
Answer Hello Rusty,
You will need to remove the thermistor from the circuit and touch the test leads to the leads of the thermistor. You will want to make sure you are not touching both of the leads with your fingers because the meter will add the resistance of your body to the reading. It will read in the neighborhood of 3K ohms. This is a ballpark estimation since no model number was listed and the specifications could no be looked up.
Frig compartment is warm. I think it may be the thermistor. Problem is I'm reluctant to pop the plastic cover in fear of breaking some plastic. Question is if the defroster timer is stuck in the defrost mode, wouldn't the freezer be warm also? Both fans seem to be running.
Answer D. Page,
If the defrost control was sticking in defrost then yes the freezer would not be cold but warm. If the unit is not going into the defrost then the freezer will still be cold but not as cold as normal and the refrigerator will be warm in which case you want to check the defrost heater and thermostat. If these have continuity then they are good and the control would be faulty.
