Kenmore Elite fridge failure 596.76522500

Not sure if the problem is the servo motor, the thermostat, or the electronic controls. I pulled the cowling off and felt the servo, warm to the touch. How can I diagnose this please?

A local repairman suggested unplugging the fridge and plugging it back in to reset the controls. It worked. Now the damper cycles as one would expect. Yipee.

Well, you were right. That was a short lived fix. The next day the problem returned. I called the techie and he came out and replaced the thermistor (sounds like a name for lobster soup). Going on a week since then and all is well. Thanx for your thoughts.
