Red face Need help installing damper and control kit
Model Number: FRS26F5AW6   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I ordered and received the full damper and control kit for this model (AP5176342), but am having some issues getting the wiring to match up correctly. I asked the experts under the part section but the only real answer was "read the instructions" which seem to have been translated from Chinese.

The issue is that the wiring harnesses don't necessarily match up with the wiring harnesses from the old part. On the kit that is being replaced, the damper motor has connections in four places... one on the bottom, a small one with a green wire near the top/side, and two at the back next to the insulation that have 3 pins which are "staggered". In the old kit there are two connectors with gray and purple wires which have staggered harnesses and fit these pins. On the new kit, there is only one staggered harness with gray and purple wires, but the damper motor still has the two sets of pins. Should this go on the "inside" set of pins (closest to the insulation) or the "outside" set of pins (closest to the front of the refrigerator)? Also there is a harness with two wires, one light blue and one orange with a white stripe, which doesn't seem to fit anywhere and does not exist in the old kit.

The answer I got from the expert was "the kit has been redesigned to work without some connections. The instruction sheet will explain this to you." Um, no it doesn't.

Default same problem

have you received any response to your question? I have replaced the damper control box on my frigidaire because it was too warm due to damper not opening. New damper control box harnesses did not match, installed anyway, now fridge is way too cold (below 30 degrees), freezes fresh foods but freezer is @ 0 degrees
