Fridge side warm.
Removed the nut screws holding on the controls on the fridge side. Swapped out the old damper control for the new. Just need to be sure to get the new assembly in the same way the old one came out -- including placement of the freezer sensor control (separate part from the assembly). Replaced the control unit and damper worked and now my fridge is the right temperature! One other item -- when diagnosing the problem with a warm fridge, most newer fridges have a self testing method via the digital temperature controls. Find your Service Data Sheet for instructions. This would have saved me time from using my multimeter testing various components.

Side by Side Freezer/Refrigerator - Refrigerator not cooling
While waiting for parts I removed the control and side panels, placed duct tape partly over the hole to the freezer to allow fridge cooling and left the panels lay inside plugged up while I monitored the fridge temp. This worked until the parts arrived.

1. Remove 3 hex screws holding (underneath) the front control panel
to the top of the fridge.
2. Remove 2 screws holding the left side assembly. The control panel
and the side assembly come down as 1 L shaped piece.
3. Unplug the large control cable and the small cable then remove
the entire assembly. Note the position of the freezer sensor
extending into the freezer. Separate the control panel from the
side assembly to access the cable bundle.
4. Remove and replace the Damper Control Assembly. Note: You can
remove the complete old styrofoam (glued in place) or cut the tape
holding a 2 part styrofoam section that holds the damper in place
and only replace the upper part. Be sure to tape the 2 styrofoam
parts back together. Make sure the freezer sensor is placed
properly on the Damper assy.
5. Remove and replace the old thermistor assembly, secure the wiring
bundle and reattach the control panel to the side panel.
6. Place the entire assembly back inside, plug up the cables.
7. While supporting both panels insert the freezer sensor in the
proper position and replace the 3 screws securing the control
panel then the 2 screws securing the side panel. Check that the
side panel is flush against the side after installation.
8 Wait about 12 hours for the temperature to stabilize.

Will this part take care of temperature beeping hot on frig
For model number Ffhs2611lwma
PartSelect logo
Hello, thank you for your question! We would recommend checking the following parts to fix your issue: the defrost thermostat (PS469522), run capacitor (PS3495561), evaporator fan motor (PS11728171), and defrost heater (PS2581596). These are common causes of the refrigerator section being too warm. If the temperature is fine, or all of these parts are testing correctly, you may need to look at the thermister, part PS8760187 as it may be sensing the temperature incorrectly. We hope this helps!

Refrigerator too warm but when I create a gap between this part and the duct to the freezer it gets too cold. I believe the part has failed, am I right?
For model number CRSH268MWB
PartSelect logo
Hello David, Thank you for the question. The Damper should open and close on its own to allow the cold air though. If you can manually open and it allows the cold air into the Fresh Food Section, we suggest having it replaced. We hope this helps!

Fridge is beeping and flashing h1. Videos show it should be damping assembly. Thoughts?
For model number FFSS2614QE1A
PartSelect logo
Hello Shane, Thank you for the question. The error "H1" error code indicates that the refrigerator thinks that the freezer and refrigerator temperatures are too warm. The temperatures are likely too warm. You can check to make sure the Damper is opening and closing properly and allowing the Cold Air to flow. You can also check the Defrost Thermostat Kit. The best way to do this is to remove the thermostat from the refrigerator so you can control the temperature of the sensor. You can let the sensor warm up to room temperature. With the sensor warmed up to room temperature the sensor should read approximately 6.2K Ohms at 68°F. With the thermistor submerged is a glass full of ice water, the sensor should be very close to 32°F which should read approximately 16.3K Ohms. If the values that you are getting are far off from these readings, then the sensor is bad and should be replaced. We hope this helps!

Is this damper assembly supposed to close completely? Mine does not close all the way, nor does it seem like it was manufactured to. Part number 242303001
For model number ffhs2622msj
PartSelect logo
Hello liane, thank you for your question. The damper shouldn't close completely. It should be open slightly to allow some air into the unit. I hope this helps.

I unplugged the damper from the fridge when i plug it back in it makes a sound like it's trying to open. I pressed down on the door and then it will open then shut. Does this mean i should replace the dampener or is it something else that is preventing it from working?
