The refrigerator could not stabilize its temperature.

There were about 12 screws involved. The front plastic that holds the temperature adjuster wheels needs to be removed, but its screws only need to be loosened - use a small automotive mirror to see the heads of these screws. Slide the front plastic piece toward the front (screw slots on top). Remove the temperature setting wheels - notice how they are installed.. Remove the semi-clear plastic covering over the light bulbs. Remove the light bulbs - NOW they're HOT. Remove the metal sheild that the light bulbs are installed - about 6 screws. Remove the Fresh Food Damper. Use a long phillips screwdriver to remove/replace the top FF Damper screw. I moved the coiled thermostat wire so it does NOT touch anything, so it detects the ambient air in the refrigerator only. I replaced the water filter since I'm in this far anyway. (Make sure the front plastic piece holds the temperature wheels - the numbers should be centered in the display windows. ) Reinstall the items in reverse order and prime the water filter. Monitor the temperature and set the control wheels as needed.
