Hi,

Thank you for your question. It is concerning when the refrigerator is not functioning correctly. The difference is the housing came with a thermostat and the damper. The damper control air flow into the fresh food section and the thermostat control the temperature in general. And the common component is the defrost control. Did the thermostat get installed correctly including bulb placement? Here are some tips.
The bulb should protrude 1 inch into the freezer compartment.
It seems that the damper is not open enough so not enough cold air is getting into the fresh food section.
I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please include more details in a reply to this post.

Hello Bill, Just picked up your reply and appreciate your recommendations. I was aware that maybe the bulb was not the correct distance into the freezer. I appreciate your 1" dimension. I verified that the bulb was maybe an 1.5" into the freezer. I removed the housing so that I could adjust the bulb to 1". I hope this slight adjustment will do the trick to improving my temperature control. I'll continue to monitor it and let you know the outcome. Thank you again for helpful information.

Sometimes getting to some parts can be a little tricky. Gaining access, to the defrost control board (ADC) in this model is one of those parts. The housing will need to be lowered to access the board. The housing can be lowered by doing the following:

  • Remove the control housing mounting screw at the back of the control housing. Slide the housing to the right and lower it from the housing supports.
  • Disconnect the temperature control housing electrical quick disconnect.
I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, additional details will be helpful. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

This sounds like an air flow problem. The control damper is the usual problem. It's not opening properly and restricting the air flow at times. Normally replacing the damper # 61005971 will correct this problem. There could be other reasons like the evaporator motor not running or the evaporator frosting up but the fridge section would not cool again until, the motor was replaced or the coils would have to be defrosted. The damper is available at SearsPartsDirect .

Replaced the control damper last week, and today it's not cold again. Guess that wasn't the problem. What can I try next?
