Well so much for that theory...on to the control board I guess. This SUCKS!

I don't know, but I got to thinking about it & the wiring diagram shows a switch integrated into the damper assembly & I'll bet that's what failed. The control not knowing the position of the damper would be a logical explanation. When it's in the test mode on the damper test, it just goes round & round & doesn't stop. Is that normal for the test??? I'll keep you updated on my progress...

I just came across the same situation on a service call last night. Damper was wide open, evap fan on & compressor off! Then while I had both doors open, the compressor kicked on. In service mode the control indicates that both the thermistors are ok. The damper had no frost on it or blockage of any kind & operated smoothly & quietly when step 5 damper test was performed. In damper test mode I unplugged & plugged in the damper motor several times & it started without hesitation each time. So now I'm at the cornfused/guessing stage of this B.S. Whirlpool/Kenmore problem: shall I try a new thermistor? Is it the board? Is it the damper not sending the right signal to the board? I left the machine with the damper unplugged & slightly open in hopes of helping the problem until I have it solved. Any feedback would be appreciated. Working on model 106.54606300.

I had one that was bouncing all over the place & I replaced the suspension rods (They came as a kit) & it completely solved the problem. I was amazed, because the old rods appeared to be fine...crazy!
