Do you have to authorize a return?

You must call the place where you ordered it, should remind them they are lucky it didn't blow out the compressor!

FYI. Contaced Appliance Pro and they sent a second new control box, no questions asked. Guess what? The second box was wired like the original, so the first new box was for sure wired wrong. I installed it and the damper closed at 45 and stayed closed. In desparation, I removed the box again and relocated the damper limit switch connector from the switch closest to the damper, to the switch closest to the motor. The temps are now 3-5 for the freezer, and 38 to 40 on the refridge, with the controls set between "0" and "1". There appears to be an adjustment screw on the end of the control switches. Are they to calibrate the knob positions?
Has anyone on this forum ever installed one of these "new and improved"
control boxes and had it work? The forum is full of complaints for this part. Quality is obviously not job one at Fridgidaire.

No, I never have installed one of these, you are just lucky you got it working.

Some units were shipped with the freezer and refrigerator controls reversed. Verify that the yellow labeled control is indeed for the fresh food and the blue labeled control is for the freezer. If not you have found your problem. Make corrections and you'll be ok.
