The side by side refrigerator was warm on the fridge side, but good on the freezer side. I suspected the fridge thermostat and replaced it. That wasn't it. And because of the amount of frost the warm fridge was generating in the freezer the defrost module went out. After that I replaced the broken diffuser (original problem), which was very easy. You need to take the plastic shroud off of the top back of the freezer. You then will see four prongs holding the diffuser in, which is on the fridge side back left side. Unhook the two plugs and unsnap the one thermostat lead and you are good to go. I should have replaced the diffuser right from the start. If you use a mirror you can see if the diffuser is opening and closing properly.
