Question about GE Profile PDS22SCRL Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
It is a GE mo# PDS22SCPARSS and the problem is that the fan in the freezer is working great and there is no ice up problem now that I just replaced the control borad. But its weird because when you have the freezer open the air flow coming out into the fridge is good, but when you close the freezer it stops and won't let anything out. The display is checking out visually ( No brown spots on the circut board ) and the temp seems to be right. So what else can it be besides the Damper, but even when left out or disconected this problem is there, even with the hole part out...No air flow when the freezer door closes....PLEASE HELP ME BEFORE I LOSE ALL MY FOOD!!!
On most bottom freezer models I have seen, there are vents on the bottom of the refrigerator box under the crisper that return from the refrigerator to the freezer. This allows air blown from the freezer into the refrigerator to return to freezer to be cooled again. It would seem these return ducts are clogged, it might be possible if you have had your refrigerator turned to a very cold setting. When you open the freezer door, you are letting air to be drawn in from the room to make up the air being blown into the refrigerator.
Pull out your crisper drawers and try to locate these vents. Check for debris or obstructions. If you don't see any, try letting the vents sit open for a couple hours to defrost. You could try speeding up the process by blowing through the vents with a hairdryer but I might advise against this because the hot air might deform the foam insulation if you are not very careful.
