How to Remove the Fresh Food Air Damper in the GE Arctica Pro Side-by-Side GSS23-GSS25-GSS27-PSS23-PSS27-PSS29-PSSS25 Refrigerator

One of the many common problems with this otherwise highly mediocre refrigerator is that the air damper– the port that brings cold air from the freezer into the beer compartment to keep your beer and milk cold– gets FUBAR and you have to replace it. A common sign of this problem is frozen beer, as discussed in this post.

Well, based on the questions in the Samurai Appliance Repair Forums, wherein Grasshoppers couldn’t figger out how to get at the damper assembly, it seemed meet and right to add this additional reference on disassembling and replacing the damper assembly. Enjoy!

    Hi SARM,
    Thanks so much for providing so much valuable info!
    I have a GE side-by-side GSS25PGMF CC.
    I have the symptom of the fresh food side freezing up (along with water and ice maker).
    I am trying to pull the damper off to check it.
    But in my model, I do not have the long channel down the back. The channel only extends about six inches down from the damper piece. My problem: can’t see how to get the channel
    piece off so that I can get the damper off. No visible screws. Seems like there are 3 places where the channel piece is attached, one at bottom and two at top. But I have no idea how to detach the piece. ANy help would be greatly appreciated (how do I make a donation?).
