KitchenAid KSRS25IHWH02 FRIDGE. Air diffuser doesnot open or close. Does not have a thermostor to control air diffuser. Link to diffuser: http://www.repaircli...-2209751-%3d%3d.

I had ordered the diffuser from a local parts store and when i went to pick it up it had the same resistance readings as the one in the fridge so I thought I better do some more research.

Do the boards in this refrigerator have anything to do with the damper opening? If not then it must be the diffuser.?

Damper is controled by refrigerator thermostat, When calling for cooling will energize damper motor causing it to open. Check your tech sheet for diagnostic mode for youtr unit. As long as evap motor is running n supply(damper) n return vents are open there should be cooling.Its not the motor in damper that burns out but door that slides close is what brakes. Heavy frost build could also lead to same senerio

The evaporator fan runs. I think I will replace the defusser.

It has two thermostats one for fridge and one for freezer. They are not digital they are slide type controls.

The damper was frozen had to unthaw with hairdryer. Could the door have broke when it was frozen and tried to open or close the door and broke the plastic?

You'll need to replace the motorized damper assembly and try to determine as best the can the cause for the freezup. Possibilities include:

- bad gaskets
- door left ajar (especially if kids or teenagers in the house)
- sticking cold control

The baffle door will close, but will not open. I had opened the door manually, and a while later it was closed. I opened it again manually. My guess is the plastic piece on the door broke when it was frozen shut.
