SOURCE: Hot point side by side electronics not operating damper

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: side by side not cooling ref side damper closed

if your damper motor is not functioning, then it could be one of the following.

the damper motor itself, the thermostat ( the controller),

or the thermistor ( the temperature sensor).

either one of this is bad, then the damper will not work.

bring down the damper motor and check the voltage requirement of the motor. bench test it if you can to determine if it is still working.

test the thermistor for resistance. immerse it in ice cold water and watch the resistance change. if you do not have a reference value, then it may not tell if it is good or bad.

the electronic controller would be a hard thing to test.
if you have the book and it has diagnostics , then run the damper control test to test the controller.


tnx 4 using fixya,

The damper should closed when in convection mode and open when in the microwave mode, to keep the heated air inside the cavity.

SOURCE: damper is stuck in closed position for heat/AC.

I belive this year has the electric actuator thatcontrols the blend door, you will ned to unbolt it and turn door then reinstall actuator to hold door in that postion, this is located on heaterbox.

My TrueZONE HZ322 Panel has the purge light on constantly and cycles purging zones 1/2 every 40 seconds. How can I get to Normal mode and stop it from purging?


Sounds like a bad board in the panel. First verify that both dampers will infact close and open to eliminate damper problem.

One of my hvac dampers is stuck open


Zoned forced air systems that use multiple thermostats that can start a single heating and cooling unit from each stat and condition just that space that called it, are conditioned by the auto damper you are referring to. These dampers are normally spring closed and driven open using a small 24 volt motor (Called an Actuator or Operator) connected to the stat that operates the damper motor with a relay. Disconnect the damper crank arm and linkage between the damper and its motor and see if the damper rotates closed. See if the damper will move freely. Power and remove power from the motor to see if it works. Doing these things will probably find the problem. Good Luck. Roger

Which direction should dampers be in order for the air to flow down? I bought a new house and all the hot air seems to be upstairs while it's freezing in the basement.


If you look at the end of most dampers, there is a line on the end of the shaft. this line when it is in line with the duct it is open, and when it is 90 degrees to duct it is closed. for most damper and motor, when it rotates clockwise it goes to open. and counterclockwise it shuts. default position on zone systems is open, most damper motor spring return to open. There is a allen set screw that anchors the motor to the shaft. to set up the motor and shaft, turn power off, unset set screw and rotate damper ccw and reanchor the set screw, repeat for all damper and associated motors.

Everything is freezing in the vegetable drawer


For this problem, its indicating towards problem with damper assembly.----------

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. ----------- The damper is operated by a motor.Its a complete damper assembly with motor included in it.--The damper has door.Which closes and open with the help of motor.In your case the damper door is remained open, its not closing.Due to this the cool air from freezer section is running in to fridge section non-stop.Due to this the vegetables and other food in the bottom drawer freezing.--------- In this problem the damper assembly needs to be replaced.---------------

This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I cannot change the temperature on my Maytag MFC2061HES. Whenever I try to change either the refer or freezer temp, it creeps back down to 33 with the freezer going to 6. I cannot turn it off. The...


It sounds like your fridge has problem with the damper stuck open. The damper is in the top-back-center of the fresh food section. I can't tell by the pics I have how to get to it, but looks like it's simple to get to it - just remove the damper cover.
Check the damper for the ice buildup. Clean if needed. Unplug the fridge and check continuity on damper motor. Replace damper if no continuity.
Check the microswitch on the damper assembly. C on switch [where it connects to black wire] should make contact with NC [yellow/red] when button is not pressed, and C with NO [blue/red] should make contact when button is down).
With temp in the fresh food section so low, the damper should be closed, and if it isn't there should be power (110v ac) coming to the motor either continuously until it closes or for a short period of time within a few minutes after you try to set the temperature, can't tell by schematic. Unplug, connect your DMM in "volts ac" parallel to the damper motor (red and green/yellow wires), and plug fridge back in. If it does not show 110v immediately, set the DMM to show the maximum voltage registered, and leave in the fridge for 20-30 minutes, with doors closed. If there was 110v, and the damper is still open - replace damper. Otherwise it's very likely that the control board failed.

Refer side freezes at normal temp settings


Depending on your model number ( which you did not give ) , you could have a bad damper . Usually this is the piece at the top left of the ref section . It could be frozen with frost , motor bad , or the control board , not telling it to close , when the correct temp is reached . On some models , only 2 screws hold this piece on , which when removed , you can visually check and check with a volt meter .
The circuit board can check the damper , by going into the diagnostic mode , and entering 1 0 . This will open the damper and then close the damper . with the damper removed , and the code entered , check the voltage with DC . Not ac . With the damper installed , getting the DC voltage , and damper does not move , initializing the 1 0 , then the damper needs replaced .

Zone is set to deliver AC but nothing comes out of the vents


Your duct system has dampers that separate the four zones. Even though all four sensors are working and call for a/c, you may not be getting voltage to the damper motors, which open when there is a call for a/c, and close when the call is satisfied. In certain parts of your duct system, you will find small orange or gray boxes with wires going into them. Those are the motors for the dampers. When there is a call for a/c in all four zones, check to see if you have power going to those boxes. If power is present, the motors are bad or the damper itself is stuck. If power is not present, check the master zone control.

Replaced mother board now damper clocsed


rip, couple of checks to do: On the main board, connector J3. On the harness you should have 400 ohms on J3-1 (yellow) to J3-2 (red/black) and 400 ohms on J3-3 (white/brown) to J3-4 (blue yellow. Same values should be at the damper motor. If you don't have those values, damper motor defective. One other check, you have 10 seconds to do this on power up, so get some help. Plug in the refer. Check for 6 VDC. DC voltage now from pins J3-1 to J3-4. If you don't have this it's the board. If you do have this and the dampers not working, replace the damper. Catriver.
