Replaced the part, I'm a former appliance service business owner but if you have a small bit of mechanical ability you can change this yourself. Be Careful though internl workings seem flimsy and you might break another part that might ruin your day.

Removed pantry slide out drawer, removed both upper drawers, removed glass shelf (below 2 drawers). Removed the front glass shelf support. It just sits in a grove, comes right off.Used a ratcheting screw driver,with no tip, to remove the screws holding the end cap. Disconnected the air flow adjusting lever from end cap.Cleaned the whole area with a sponge and soap and water.lol.( amazing how dirty it can get being out of sight). reinstalled the lever on the new end cap, screwed it in place, put everything back together, DONE!It took about 20 min, including cleaning.Oh yeah, had an "inservice" with my grandaughter on how to close the 'fridge door.
