What you didnt state was whether you had cold air blowing when the damper opened up. If you did, then the problem will be with the damper assembly itself, or the control board, which is what you would adjust to change temperatures. This microswitch you mentioned, was this on the control board? then the control board is the problem. If you did something with the damper assembly, then that might be the problem.
If you dont have any cold air blowing when you opened the damper door, then airflow is your issue, and you will have to include more symptoms for a refrigerator repair diagnosis.

Unplug the refrigerator and then plug back in. Using multimeter check between J3-1 and J3-4.
Must be done within 10 seconds of starting. You should have 6 VDC. If you do replace damper, if not replace motherboard.

As per the problem, it does not indicates towards compressor problem.Because idf compressor stops working, then freezer section will not freeze.But in your case the freezer is working properly, so this clears that compressor is working properly.---------
As per your problem, its defrost problem.--------
The defrost assembly consists of three main parts. The defrost thermostat, the defrost heater and defrost board. Any of the one is not functioning. When thermostat sense the maximum cooling, it triggers the defrost heater to start heating and this defrosts the ice collected on the coils and the system works. Both thermostat and heater are controlled by defrost board. First the thermostat and defrost heater to be checked, if both check ok by meter and visually, then its defrost board causing the problem. You can get required parts from from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site.------------ As you mentioned that defrost heater and defrost thermostat both are working good.Then problem indicates towards defrost board.------------------ -------------------- The working procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located.---------------------
NOW read this point carefully. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning.---------- But when freezer section reach the set temperature, then thermostat senses the temperature and give command to defrost board that , now start the defrost heater.So defrost heater gets hot and melts the ice.The ice melting water in the freezer section, drains from the drain line to the pan above the compressor.This drained water gets dissolved in air when compressor gets hot.---------- But in your case most probably the thermostat is not sensing the freezer temperature, so the defrost cycle is not starting and if defrost cycle will not start, then cool from freezer will not get to the fridge section.--------- So most probably its thermostat, but if thermostat checks ok, then its faulty defrost control board.--------- For getting thermostat testing instructions,click the link below:--- http://howtobyme.blogspot.com/2011/07/how-to-test-defrost-thermostat-on.html --------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

SOURCE: THE REFER SIDE IS FREEZING
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your post I understand you have a problem with a refrigerator, Frigidaire model:FRS23R4AQ7, correct ?
If that's the scenario and If it is indeed a Frigidaire side by side, what do you have the said controls set at ? These have a history of irratic cold controls/thermostats.
The other thing that could manifest in this manner is a clogged condensor coil assembly. Have you blown it out with compressed air or vacuumed it out recently ?
I'll watch and look forward for your reply and we can go forward from here if you need any further assistance. Good luck.

Depending on the correct model number found inside the
fresh food section will help diagnose but it sounds like either a defective
temperature sensor or the damper itself is the cause. If your model number is a
USA model number I can look up what part number and tell you better by looking
at parts manual. Let me know the model number and I will try to help you find the correct parts,
Thanks Sea Breeze
