This refrigerator originally had a defrost problem. Refrigerator not cold, ice buildup on freezer rear wall, the regular stuff.

I replaced the system ie heater, control board and bimetal.

A month after, customer calls and complains the F/F side is not getting cold again.

So, I check it out. Freezer is good, defrost is good, but Diffuser is not opening all the way.

I changed the Diffuser last week and today they say cold air is hardly coming out of the vent and
even if they raise the control it doesn't change.

What's left?

Thanks,
Bruce

A side by side, did you check the lower air return to see if it is iced up ?
