Yea, the link is not working now for me either, but yes something has to open to let the cold air into the food compartment, sounds like it could be that thermostat mal-functioning.

Is the thermostat part of the timer/circuit board? I cannot find one in the parts lookup form.

You have two, they're behind the knobs for refrigerator/freezer settings. However....

This is the air diffuser, Whirlpool part number 2209751. These are notorious for the slider breaking and failing closed, resulting in no air getting from the freezer to the Newcastle section. This view is upside down as viewed from the freezer side. The louvres should slide back and forth (motor operated). I'd look at this first in your circumstances.

The air diffuser might be the problem. I actually put something through the vent and the louvers were almost closed. Then is wedged the doors open and left the knife in the vent so it can't close. The Bass Ale now stays cold. Sometimes the knife has frost on it and sometimes it doesn't. Can you tell me how to remove the vent to see if it is broken?

Thanks.

I have a similar problem with a White Westinghouse frost free side-by-side. I don't know if it's ok to post to this topic when I have a similar problem or not. If not, I appoligize. The cool side isn't cold enough even when the control is at coldest. There is a fan up in the corner of the cool side, by the control that never runs. Does that circulate air from the cold side to the cool side? Could that be why the cool side never gets cold enough? If so, what can cause that and how can I issolate the cause?

Thanks,
Mike
