The refrigerator thermostat is set at the coolest setting but still freezes food, when rotating the control knob a click is heard turning it on and off. I looked for a damper that might be stuck but was unable to locate one. I was also unable to find one in a parts book. Any suggestions ?
Thanks

Just because it turns off when manually turning the control doesn't mean it turns off automatically. Your refrigerator design is pretty simple, there is no damper. I can't see anything else in your fridge that could be responsible other than the thermostat.

Unfortunately every place I checked is out of them. Hopefully they're just on a slow boat and not discontineud.

Running all the time should also make the freezer extra cold. It might make it difficult to scoop ice cream.

Hi,

The refrigerator thermostat is set at the coolest setting but still freezes food

Warmest setting you mean? The coldest or coolest setting would make things too cold.

I looked for a damper that might be stuck but was unable to locate one

It has an diffuser which is basically a block of foam air vent. #28 and #29.

I was also unable to find one in a parts book

Very little info out there for this model#/style refrigerator :(
