The fridge side of my side by side is too cold and freezing vegetables, etc. I have not yet recorded the temperature, but frozen lettuce, carrots and cucumbers are a dead give away. I initially tried setting the temperature to the warmest setting without success. Still too cold. After researching, I learned that this setting controls the damper door between the freezer and fridge. I am going to try increasing the freezer setting to hopefully get the damper door to shut and see if this helps with the fridge temperatures.
A little background info: The unit was making a very audible fan noise before the problem of being too cold surfaced. The noise sounded very much like a plastic fan blade rubbing against another another piece of plastic. That noise was quite noticeable and would come and go periodically. It reminded me a little of how I used to use baseball card rubbing against the spokes of my bike to make it should like a motorcycle when I was a kid. Then suddenly the noise stopped and the fridge started getting too cold. I am assuming the stopping of the fan and temperature condition are related, right? Is the fan in question the evaporator fan? Could it be that without circulation, the temperature control is now ineffective and the compressor is working extra hard to cool the unit?
I could use some help from those wiser than me to troubleshoot this issue. How can I visually see if the damper door is moving as it is supposed to? Where is the evaporator fan located and how do I access it? Any other help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
