    Model Number:
    Brand: Frigidaire

    hello, I putin the new harness and control #4, now the air damper stays closed. I put the 2 wires to the switch close to the styrofoam block. How do I get the control to open? thanks

    What is the model number of the refrigerator? What part number did you replace?

    Double check the wires going to the damper switch. You might have it connected to the wrong switch. If you connect this incorrectly it can cause the flashing #4 error and it won't open the damper until it is fixed.
