Thanks again,


Controller fixed it all. I had one snag, though. Having the freezer on and with the issue, it froze over the lower vent. I was thinking about tearing it open to try and get to and defrost the vent. I thought better, though. The directions said to wait 24 hrs to let the frig adjust. I figured that it would probably cycle into a defrost and fix the venting prob. It did.


Frig was set on 5 and was 32 degrees when I woke up. So I turned it down to 4.

OK, Thank you. I'll give that a try.

My reply from last night never took. Thanks for the response, much quicker than I expected.


Of course, now that I was trying to get my freezer to cycle, it wouldn't. I finally got it to and the voltage is what I expected... ther is none. It cycles from 118V to 0V. The timing is more of a 1 second on/2 seconds off/1 on/2 off.


The only time I can notice anything happening with the damper is when I turn the frig all the way to zero, then it runs and clicks and sounds really loose.


Am I right about the thermostat operating more like a mercury switch than a digital output?


Should I be fixing the damper and the control? or damper, control, and therm?


Thanks again.
