I found that the damper control was shutting down the compressor and fans. I removed the cover plate but can't figure out how to remove the damper control. The part #AP4247995 is the same as my damper control but it is fastened tight and I am afraid to pry on it but can't find any visible fasteners. Can you help so I can order the part. Thanks
Answer Hello Larry,
The damper on this unit is not an electrical part. You need to check the evaporator fan motor for running too slowly or if you stop the fan and let go, if the fan has to be bumped to restart or it starts slowly, the fan motor has failed. If the compressor is stopping also, check the door switch and the wiring. The damper is most likely installed with the self adhering foam tape which comes with the new part since it cannot be used twice.
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.
