How do I test the damper motor? The fridge side gets hot and cold as the freezer freezes and defrosts because the damper door is stuck open (better than closed). I am right now using a piece of duck tape to regulate it somewhat, but it still sucks - just less. After $280 and him diagnosing the problem as and replacing the fridge thermostat, there was no change and the repairman did not call for a month despite my calling and advising him of the problem. He surely will want more money. During this time, I ordered a damper online and replaced it, but this did not fix the problem. I even put the old damper motor in the new damper with no results. I needed a new damper anyway though, because it is a used refrigerator and the other one did not seal correctly. While working on the damper, I noticed that the repairman had not connected the ground on the fridge thermostat and was excited that this would be the problem, but it was not. I'm guessing that I need to test the damper motor or make sure all the wiring is connected correctly (maybe the repairman got crossed) or try to figure out if maybe the board is bad (I have two of those - spare parts, used - you know, tried both no luck). What should I do next? Thanks!!!
