Question about Refrigerators
When I turn power off for several hours then turn it back on, the freezer temp is OK around 0 degrees for days. Eventually it gets too cold by a difference of -12 degrees. The refrigerator remains around 36 degrees. There is a damper w/ motor that controls the proportion of refrigerated air that goes to the freezer or refrigerator. I suspect the damper isn't working consistently and it intermittently sticks mechanical or ice?and diverts too much refrigerated air to the freezer when the refrigerator needs more air to cool it to its temperature set-point. Anyone have a similar experience? If so, how was it fixed?

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: Freezer quits working
Solution Found! The problem is when the temperature surrounding the
refrigerator in the garage falls to < 45 degrees, the thermostat
regulating the refrigerator will not call for the compressor to kick in
to provide cooling (it's temperature requirements are being met). Since
there is no demand, the compressor will not cycle, which is how the
freezer is kept cold, and the freezer eventually warms up to match the
refrigerator temperature. Frigidaire makes a "Cold Kit" that I ordered
and installed from RepairClinic.com for $22 (Item
#: 1037646; Description: Garage kit). It's basically a strip heater
that runs off the control power to warm the thermostat and causes the
compressor to cycle once to twice a day to keep the freezer frozen.
After installation, the refrigerator stays at 40-45 and the freezer
stays around 0 degrees.
