I have a WP Gold model# GS5SHAXSL00. The freezer is -20 and that is causing defrost drain and return air duct to freeze. I have changed main control and thremistor but still nada. It''s been a long time since I visited this site and it is good to see that the same group of techs are still here helping poeple. Thanks in advance......

Thanks for the reply.j Yes I did the thermistor test before changing the control board. When I changed the thermistor and board, the control did a self test upon startup and thermistor passed. The damper was open when I left the house and now I am thinking damper problem?

it looks like the Thermistor monitors the Fridge temperature (to control the Compressor)
If the Fridge is staying too warm (Light not turning OFF) then the Compressor will stay ON
The Damper doesn't look like it's electrically operated.
