GE Side by Side Refrigerator Freezing the Beer

It happened again: you reach for a can of Old Milwaukee only to feel that tell-tale bulge at the top of the can. The beer froze… again. D’OH!

Refrigerator air inlet cover/damper kit with fan motorThe problem is usually the damper door assembly– these have been a real cash cow, er, I mean, headache for servicers since dayo uno.

What usually happens is that the damper door cracks and gets stuck in the wide open position. Look in there and see. If this is what’s happened to yours, then you’ll need to replace the entire damper assembly.

My Maytag side by side refrigerator has a block of ice covering the bottom of the freezer. It also has water sitting on the floor under the freezer alot of the time. What could cause this problem and where do I look at to fix it? Thanks for reply.
