See if you have some paperwork on how to test, etc. located in a plastic bag taped up to the underside of the fridge. Pull the front vent cover off and you should see (feel) a bag taped up there with the test paperwork in it. If you don't have it let us know and maybe I can email it to you.

SOURCE: damper door
If it is like my GE,open the refrigerator side and on the upper most left corner, there is a guard that has 2 screw securing it to frame. Remove the two screws and there is a damper which opens and closes.(it is activated by a small electric motor) Hope this helps.

I found this problem addressed on applianceblog.com and per they recomended part # 67006166. My repairman ordered this part and it had been superseeded by an even newer version, # 10127429. He installed that newest version in late June 2008 and it has been great ever since. So for me # 10127429 was the answer. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Fan is making noise
Think i can help. All refrigerators have the same basic components. The fan housing is fairly easy to access. slide tie ref. out enough to lie down behind it. There will be a cover plate on the bottom rear. Remove all the screws that secure it to the back and slide it out. This allows access to the compressor and fan assy. You should unplug at this time. The fan blade is made of a thin medal so it will bend easily. Visually inspect it for damage. if it is damaged it can be straightened but if it is to bad it will need to be replaced. Most likely problem is that the surrounding covers have shifted. this is an easy fix. simply give the shield a light push to readjust is until it doesn't hit blade. hope this helps and good luck.

I have an old Amana bottom freezer that does that. It's because the defrost heaters are doing their job and the area around them as well as the coil is expanding rapidly. Try making certain that the cabinet is level and not on an unsteady footing. You might want to try turning the T stat in the freezer to a lower setting. Usually between 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 works best in all freezers. If none of this helps and the banging continues, get used to it or get another fridge. It seems to be a failing in bottom freezer models for some reason. It's harmless but annoying. I actually know someone who says she has the ghost of a frozen turkey stuck in her freezer that's trying to get out! LOL!
