Hi -- I have the following symptoms: freezer at 0degrees fresh food section at 50 degrees. Evaporator fan is blowing, damper is open. I suspect that there is no return path for the air from FF to freezer. But, I cannot find the return duct. Does anyone know where it is? I've looked throughout the bottom of the FF section and side panels. Thanks!

I found it Tim, I'm attaching the service manual below.

Look on page 52, the return air duct is at the very top left side in the FRESH FOOD side.

Thank you, Jake. If I understand page 52 correctly the damper and return duct are both on the left side of the FF section when facing the refrigerator. I am taking the right-hand picture to be a side view with the front on the left and rear in the back. The damper is in the rear and the return is in the front, both on top? In the actual refridgerator I can see the damper but there is no port in the front corresponding to the return. Do you think I am interpreting the image correctly?

There should be a RETURN vent at the top left side of the fresh food side.
