I just had a brand new fridge delivered and installed today. When putting in the air filter, I noticed this large block of styrofoam behind where the FreshFlow air filter goes. Is this supposed to stay there? see pic

Thanks. Never thought of looking up the part like that. Not that I knew what it was called. It finally got down to about 40F. It's set to 37F. So I guess it's working as intended.

Thanks again.

Hey Jeff,
I was wondering if you have seen any posts regarding an unusual noise this damper control assembly/fresh flow air filter holder makes? Sort of sounds like an model T running and it runs the same amount as the condenser (maybe one in the same). I say unusual because I’ve never heard a noise like that coming from the inside of a refrigerator.
Attached a video.

*I* have not see none myself, but I have read about others having noise issues with this style one :(
