The refrigerator has started to make a sound that has me guessing the air damper control is having trouble starting (initiating). It sounds like it tries for a second, pauses for a second, tries for a second, pauses for a second. After several cycles of this, the air damper controller (again, i am guessing) will start and everything appears to be working properly after that. The fridge appears to have good temp and humidity levels. Is this issue more likely related to the air damper controller, or the computer chip, or the thermostat?
For model number FRS6R5ESBS
Hi Graham, Thank you for your question. The air damper, baffle or diffuser is the device that balances the air flow from the evaporator fan housing. This normally is a mechanically controlled baffle or flapper that controls the amount of cold air entering the fresh food compartment. If the baffle is damaged or the linkage to the control knob is damaged, then too much cold air may enter the fresh food compartment resulting in lower than normal temperatures. The baffle or damper will be located where the cold air enters the fresh food compartment. The housing that the baffle or damper is encased in is often made of plastic with a Styrofoam lining and may have a foam seal to prevent air leakage. Care should be used when inspecting the housing to avoid damage to the seal or the Styrofoam. Locate the baffle/damper and operate the control knob to verify that the linkage is intact and that it moves freely. If the damper/baffle is stuck in the open position or does not move freely, then it should be replaced. Some refrigerator models use a temperature sensing bulb attached to this control that will automatically adjust the control for changes in the interior temperature. Make sure that the sensing bulb is in the correct position and is not damaged. If you verify it is the air damper, please let us know and we will be happy to place the order for you. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Have loud grinding noise coming from the top part of the refrigerator. Refrigerator freezes some foods even when turning the temperature control all the way down.
For model number FRS3R3JW2
Hi Deborah, Thank you for the question. This sounds like it might be an issue with the Air Damper, PartSelect Number: PS977157. I suggest checking the damper to see if it is stuck open and allowing to much cold air through. The grinding noise could be the motor struggling to close the damper. Hope this helps!

My refrigerator freezer works well but my food section is warm. Feel the cold air coming from the bottom vent. The air damper is not making sound nor the control panel and no cold air coming from the air damper. Whats should i do?
For model number WRS3R3EW3
Hi Tchuzie, thank you for your question. When you are having temperature problems in your fridge, there are a few parts that could cause the issue. You can use a multi meter to test most of the parts. Make sure you cut power to your appliance before doing any repairs or tests. First you should test your defrost thermostat. Place the thermostat in ice cold water for 2-3 minutes after removing it from your appliance. It should be reading 0 ohms to be working correctly. Another part to check would be your defrost heater. Remove it from the appliance. It should be reading anywhere between 0 - 50 ohms to be working. You could check your temperature sensor. To find the correct reading for this part you will have to refer to your tech sheet that comes with your appliance. You can usually find this tech sheet behind the bottom grille of your fridge on either the right or left side. These are the most common parts that cause this issue in your appliance. If those parts are fine you may want to take a look at your evaporator fan motor. So it is suggested you check them first. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

The cold air coming out of the nozzle in the inside back of the freezer blows on the bottom of the ice cube tray. The air cycles on and off constantly, even with the ice maker turned off. Would the problem be the air control valve, a faulty thermostat switch or maybe low on freon?
For model number FRS23R4CQ3
Hello Jerry, Thanks for your question. Your thermostat and the air damper control may be worth testing with a multi-meter to see if they have continuity. Replace them if they are not showing continuity. I hope this helps.

Behind the panel in the upper portion of the refrigerator side adjoining the freezer there is a part in there that clicks like it’s trying to start the refrigerator. Both freezer and refrigerator are operating at normal temperature. Please advise thank you.
For model number Plhs269zcb3
Hello Joseph, thank you for your question. That could be an issue with the air damper, or the thermostats behind the control knobs that adjust the temperatures. There is also an adaptive control board back there that might not be cycle on to start the defrost cycle. If the unit is operating at the correct temperature,the thermostats are probably not the issue, we would recommend checking the damper to be sure its opening and closing properly. If the clicking continues you may want to check the defrost board. I hope this helps.

The refrigerator has started to make a sound that has me guessing the air damper control is having trouble starting (initiating). It sounds like it tries for a second, pauses for a second, tries for a second, pauses for a second. After several cycles of this, the air damper controller and the evaporator fan motor finally start and then it is good. It will later cycle and start up fine. Then the next time it may try and not start for about 8 times the starts again. Please tell me what exactly is (sending the signal or current to start the air damper and evaporator motor at the same time, because they are both trying to start but won't until after about 8 times ???) i bought a used air damper control and it is doing the same thing so i assume that is not the problem. is it the defrost timer control board 241508001 or the evaporator fan or what that makes these keep trying to start ??? thank you
For model number GLRS267ZDQ4
Hi Steve, thank you for your question. Unfortunately it could be either of those two parts and a couple of others that may be causing the issue. I would say take a look at your timer first but if that part is not the issue then you may have to also take a look at your defrost thermostat to make sure it is reading the correct temperatures and signalling all of the other parts correctly. If those parts are fine then you may have to look into your fan or even your control board being the issue. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Behind the ice maker, a fan will do the following. It will blow air on both sides for two seconds and shut off, it repeats this for awhile and then it will blow air normally.Remember the fan- on off, on off, bunch of time then normal.
For model number FRS23H5ASB8
Hello Bill, thank you for contacting us. The air damper is controlled by the temperature in the appliance. If it is turning on and off randomly I suggest having it replaced. Hope this helps!

The refrigerator is freezing food. The repairman has replaced the thermisters, control panel. It is not working. It seemed to me that the damper wasn't closing. Refrigerator runs continually but the freezer doesn't get as cold as it should but the refrigerator is getting too cold. I have a feeling that if the doors were left closed eventually the freezer and refrigerator would be the same temperature before it would stop running. I mentioned this to the repairman but he said this model does not have a damper on it. Is that True? Any thoughts on how to fix this problem? (he is now replacing the replacement parts)
For model number WRT318FZDB02
Hello Fred, Thank you for the question . This model has an Air Duct, Part Number: PS11770119 and Air Damper,PartSelect Number: PS11770260 that is located on the back wall. I agree it sounds like the duct is not closing and allowing to much cold air through causing the temperature to be off in both sections. It might have a frost build up or something blocking it from operating properly. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

My Frigidaire refrigerator water and ice maker keep freezing up . I recently put a new fan and defrost control board in. What causes the water to freeze? The temp in the fridge seems at a normal range 35/40 degrees
For model number frs3r5esb6

We would recommend checking the following parts to fix your issue: defrost heater, defrost thermostat, temperature control and temperature control thermostat, and damper control. You can test the parts with a multimeter. If you are unfamiliar with how a multimeter functions, there are YouTube videos available to assist you. Hope this helps!
