on if it were located near the top or bottom of that cooling fin.
My sensor is attached to the wire shelf you show in the photo.

Are you sure you have an actual damper door that opens and closes???????
Can you see it?
My freezer is separated from the lower compartment. It is totally sealed.
In fact the freezer door often gets vacuum locked and is difficult to pull open.

Today 8 AM we go for our Dometic recall repair and immediately after that
we bug out for 3 days.
Happy camping!!!!!
KyDan - thanks for clearing that up and saying it is the thermistor and not a damper control. Check yesterday's discussion about thermistors for a lot more discussion about this.

Do a search for Thermistor and you will find a lot of good discussion about them. I believe what you have in your photo is a thermistor and if you push it all the way up on the fin (be sure the cable is under the sliding sleeve) it should bring the frig tenp down and if you slide it down, the frig temp should get warmer.
