I have a GE Profile side by side frige. Model TFH30PRTAWW. Freezer works fine, frige is warm. Damper was closed and would not open as required. I took damper door off to open up hole between freezer and fridge. Still no cold air coming through opening. Is there another solution to get cold air into the fridge side?

The problem is damper assembly.In the damper assembly there is a door.This door opens and close with the help of motor.The damper is located between freezer and fridge section.The cold air from freezer section enters to fridge section via this damper door.----------
What repairmen did was proper, but may be that door is not properly got open, it got closed again.Or there is ice got collected between the freezer and freezer section, so this is not letting the cool air to pass from freezer to fridge.-----------
This damper assembly needs to be replaced.Actually this door functions correctly with motor.He open the damper door manually and thought, the cool air will enter the fridge section non stop, but that door is again got closed, by some how.---------
You will have to get the damper assembly part replaced, to get the air flow work properly.------- As the repair man has already ordered the part, otherwise you can get this parts from online sites like www.repairclinic.com or from sears parts direct site.--------
Getting the damper door assembly, replaced will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
Are you sure it is 135? If the freezer is cold but the fridge is warm, most likely is the damper door problem. (Basically, it's a door controlled by the main board, get cold air from freezer and close when the fridge is cold enough)
Sounds like the damper or damper belt may be at fault. The cold air
enters the refer compartment through the damper in the back. If that
damper is not controled to close/open as needed it is likely stuck
fully open all the time. That will let cold air in no matter what the
t-stat says. See if you can view with a mirror and see if the damper
"blinds" are fully open. If the t-stat is turned all the way down the
dampers should close, as less cold air is needed. Then, as the t-stat
is turned up, the dampers open to let in cold air from the freezer
compartment. Let us know what you find and we can go from there.
your damper vent door is not opening to let the freezers cold air in to the refrigerator compartment,its located between the refrige and freezer,also make sure the evaporator fans are running to move the cold air
it could be the damper part number WR49X10091,if the damper door isn't closing correctly cold air will just keep coming into the fridge side from the freezer,usually the damper door opens to let the cold air in when the fridge starts warming up and when it gets cold enough the door will close but your damper is stuck open
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper)
between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through
it.There is a flap you adjust with the
fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the
fridge temp ..
is you freezer freezing if yes is your evaporator motor in the frezeer running.
if yes then it might be you damper assy that is not opening but on GE'S most of the times that run call with that problem the evap motor is not running does your frige have a computer at the back if you do then you have to trouble soot that computer or call a tech or just repl that board and if it doesn't work just return it
