The damper is controlled by a linkage that is connected to the thermostat. Hope this helps.

What will cause a damper between the freezer and fridge on a side by side to stop working?


Recheck the board wiring, and make sure the damper has power when the thermostat calls for cooling in the fridge. If there is power, it's the motor or its connection to the baffle plate. If no power, it's the board.

My frigidaire refrigerator side by side if flash a number 4 on the fridge side as it is not cooling


Good Morning John, thank you for your post!

Generally, error code 4 means that the refrigerator is experiencing an issue with the damper. The damper is either not opening or closing properly causing the fridge compartment to not cool. One of the best ways to determine if this is a false error code is to reset the power to your refrigerator by either unplugging it or flipping off the breaker for about 30 seconds. If the error code persists, the wiring between the damper and Main Control Board will need to be diagnosed by a professional. Depending on the results, either the damper or Main Control Board will need replacing.

Best regards!

Fridg temp control not regulating the temp in fridg


Refrigerators like the Hotpoint Model HSS25GFP have a air damper that controls fresh food sections temperature. Your refrigerator also has a diagnostics feature and can at times locate the problem causing the fresh food section to cool too much. Either your auto damper has frost blocking it open or the=> WR55X10025 Thermister is defective.
Try using a hair drier to force warm air into the damper to see if the damper will close better by melting any ice that may have the damper stuck open.Here is the=> WR09X10050 Damper Thermister Assembly Instructions on how to change this part can also be found on the same page HERE If you have any questions please ask, Thanks Sea Breeze

Why is Fridge not cooling well?


The part number you need is going to be WR09X10050. This is for the damper assembly, but while you are at it change out part number WR55X10150. this is the part that controls the damper and more than likely if one fails the other will be soon to follow

Frig side does not cool. freezer side cools


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. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

My 9 yr old Kenmore Elite fridge is warming up!! The freezer is fine!!!! Model 3 106*74902401 Seriel # ES423704 Manufacture date is 10/2005, I purchased it in Dec of '05 and it's been WONDERFUL!!


This problem sounds like a damper control broken or frozen.
Lowering the freezer temperature may help to fix the problem as the damper sometimes freezes and not able to open to cool down the fridge side.

If lowering the freezer temperature doesn't help, you may need to call for a technician to fix or replace the damper control.

Also, be sure the door closes properly and no air comes in or out from the fridge.

Freezer is working but refrigerator is not


My Maytag (side by side) had a similar problem, turns out to be the damper door. The freezer does the cooling, there's a damper door between the fridge and freezer that opens and closes to control fridge temp. Find the damper door and prop it open. If the fridge temp drops overnight, you'll need a new damper ***'y.

Fridge side is not cooling or very low


. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..If it's not it could be the linkage or the control. You probably can do the repair. post your model number to find diagrams of parts to check.

well if you keep that damper open im sure everything in your refrig- will freeze is the temp- in the freezer o.k. if you have an ice maker is it working properly because if your freezer does not maintain the right temp your ice maker wont work. if so you might have a bad temp control (thermostat)
