The other day I heard a clicking for roughly 30 seconds near the vent into the fridge from the freezer. The next morning the freezer was not freezing (water from melting ice tray everywhere), and the fridge was warm. I took the back panel off and cleaned things out, plugged it back in and it clicked again for 30 seconds in the same spot, near the damper, but the freezer began to freeze. The fridge was still not cold however. I took the panel off the inside of the freezer and there was a normal amount of frost and the fan was working. The temperature display for the fridge was flashing the number "4". I woke up this morning and the freezer was not freezing again and the "4" was still flashing. Just wondering what the flashing "4" is and whether you think its the damper, timer, temperature sensor, or something completely different.

Thanks for the help!
