Where is damper door in a kenmore refrigerator model #9510681 side by side


If you can't see the damper door, it is most probably shut, possibly frozen or not working. Top of middle section, allows airflow from freezer to fridge part. Switch thermostat off, wait 20 mins, switch back on. If damper doesn't open, check stat and damper motor.

I have a kenmore side by side. FF side too cold. Replaced t-stat and defrost timer. All settings and air flow set right. FF still too cold. T-stat set all the way down . Should be at 3 or 4


You need to provide a model number in order to look over the parts list and see what type of auto damper your model has. There are ways to test an auto damper to see if it opens and close properly. An auto damper can be electrical or mechanical. Kenmore model numbers look like this example=> 321.2345789 and can be found artound the fresh food compartment door frame.

11 Mark the auto damper rod about 1/4 in. from and away from the housing.
12 Uncoil the auto damper capillary tube at about 4 in.'s
13 Submerge into a glass of ice (not water). then watch for door to move to the closed
position.
14 Remove from ice and warm capillary tube with your hand. Then watch door for an opposite reaction.

The above is only a demostration of how to test a refrigerator with an auto that uses a capillary tube to open and close the damper. Your refrigerator will need to be identified by the correct model number to let you know what type of auto damper your model has, Post your model number and I will tell you what you will need to test yours, Thanks Sea Breeze

How to install a damper on a Frigidaire side by side


Installing the new damper control takes just minutes. The replacement damper control comes with a foam mounting gasket. Remove the paper backing from one side of the gasket to expose the adhesive; press the gasket to the back of the damper control. Now that the gasket is mounted to the damper control, you can mount the damper control to the freezer wall. Peel the paper backing off the other side of the gasket and press the damper control to the mounting area. The wiring harness and thermistor attach to the right side and bottom of the component, respectively. Replace the damper control cover and reinstall the removed mounting screws.

The problem has to be in the damper control inside the refrigerator section.

Disconnect the refrigerator from power and remove the food from the top shelf. The damper control is in the box near the top of the refrigerator section behind the temperature control knob.

Remove the knob and cover until you can access the damper control. You can prop the damper control open with a pencil or something to make the refrigerator work until you get a part if you need to. Here is the part you need.

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.

I HAVE AN ERROR CODE dH on my Kenmore Elite bottom


The Er DH error code indicates the temperature sensor on the evaporator coil did not reach 50 degrees within one hour.
This would indicate the control board did put the refrigerator through a defrost cycle.

This problem could be caused by a defective relay on the control board, a defective defrost heater, a broken wire to the heater, or a stopped up drain on the defrost pan causing ice to form on the evaporator coil.

Before replacing the control board, someone should remove the food from the freezer, remove the freezer drawer, and remove the evaporator cover to expose the evaporator coil, heater, and defrost sensor.
The voltage to the defrost heater should be 120 volts ac.
The defrost heater is part of the evaporator coil and is not replaceable as a separate part.

You can test the operation of the defrost system by pressing "Ultra Ice" and "colder freezer temp" for 3 seconds.
The first time you press and hold the buttons the board will test the compressor, fan, and open the damper.

All displays should be on.


The second time you press and hold the buttons the board will test the compressor, fan, and close the damper.

The third time you press and hold the buttons, the board will turn the compressor and fan off and turn the defrost heater on for around 25 minutes. This would let you know if the defrost system is working.

Amana Mod # ABB2223DEB Refrigerator


Try damper part number W10167268 from Whirlpool. They re-engineered the part, it's works different. Whirlpool issued a bulletin to servicers, but won't cover it under warranty (I have tried for many customers) "A bulletin is NOT a recall"
