Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/GE refrigerator


I have a model GSS25TGMB WW refrigerator where the water froze and some food also froze. The freezer setting is 5 and the refrigerator setting is 1. I have vac out the bottom and have blown out the bottom yet the temp in the frig is 30 degrees. Sometimes it drops down to 26 degrees. I have to mention we were not home for 6 days so the doors were not opened. This happened about 5 years ago and after a good bottom cleaning it was fine. So what can I do now ?

Might want to take a look at item number 426 in the attached diagram which is called a damper control.  This is an electronic damper assembly that opens and closes to allow more or less air to flow into the refrigerator section for cooling.  If you can verify the damper door is opening and closing electrically, then take a look at the sensor.  This sensor tells the electronic control when to open and close that damper door.  Let me know what you find.....

Waiting to hear from you,
